Speaking to reporters at the Mumbai Press Club, Hazare said, "They (Government) have sent people to check my records in the Army. They want to see if they can find something during my service years. I have not done anything wrong throughout my life."
And added, "They have put people after me. They have sent people to my village to check on my organisation. I have no bank balance, so what will you find? I live in a temple in an eight feet by ten feet room. I just have a plate to eat and a bed to sleep on. What will you find?"
Hazare, who hails from Ralegan Sidhi village in Ahmednagar district of Maharastra, has served as a jawan in the Army for 15 years.
The anti-draft crusader asserted that he has not done a single wrong in his life and doubted the government's intention in trying to dig out his past.
Hazare, who is set to embark on an indefinite fast from Aug 16, said that the government's version of the Lokpal Bill that was presented in the Loksabha was a betrayal of the people.
He said, "The Government said they would present their draft as well as our draft before the Union Cabinet but they betrayed the people by presenting only their draft," he said, adding that the government should withdraw their Lokpal Bill and either bring a new Bill afresh or make amendments in it."
