More trouble for the central government as the well known anti-corruption crusader and social activist Anna Hazare has warned of launching a hunger strike from January 30.
This is being said to be over the central government’s failure to appoint the anti-corruption ombudsman as per the Lokpal and Lokayukta Act, 2013.
It is now being said that the Hazare’s fresh agitation for the appointment of a competent Lokpal will be launched at his village Ralegan-Siddhi in Maharashtra.
Hazare had earlier written a letter to the PM’s Office he which he reminded the Modi government that it didn’t fulfill its promise of appointing a competent Lokpal.
Claiming that he had earlier postponed or suspended his agitation over promises made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government and its emissaries, Hazare said that he was wrong to trust their “lies”.
He sat on a fast at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi on March 23 last year but called it off later when the PMO gave a written assurance that his demand would be fulfilled.
