Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan
Mumbai, Sep 23: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan today (Sept 23) said he had received the letter written by anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare, which seeks introduction of Lokayukta bill in the state legislature.

"I got the letter late in the evening (yesterday). I will reply to it soon," Chavan told reporters today.

Hazare has said in the letter that if the state government does not bring in a strong Lokayukta bill in the winter session, he would launch a fast.

Hazare, whose 12-day fast last month for Lokpal bill hogged global limelight, has also said that the Lokayukta should get more powers under the proposed state law.
