Thank you, but get the law enacted: Anna Hazare

Stepping up his anti-corruption campaign, social activist Anna Hazare on Thursday night brushed aside Sonia Gandhi's appeal to him that he withdraw his hunger strike.

“I thank Sonia Gandhi for her statement [appealing to him to end the fast]. Soniaji, tell the government to get the Lokpal Bill enacted at the earliest,” Mr. Hazare said in a terse reaction to Congress President Sonia Gandhi's appeal.

As his hunger-strike entered the third day, Ms. Gandhi had appealed to the 71-year-old Gandhian to give up his fast, assuring him that his views would receive the government's full attention.
