Lokpal Bill not yet passed, Anna ready to resume fast

Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Nov 28: Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare may soon resume his nation-wide fast once again as the Parliament has so far failed to pass the Lokpal Bill. The Gandhian has threatened the government to start his hunger strike reiterating the demand to pass the anti-corruption bill before the Winter Session of the Parliament ends.

Hazare's intention to start his fast came in the news when one of his crucial aides, Arvind Kejriwal rushed to Ralegan Siddhi on Sunday, Nov 27 and detailed Anna about the current situation of the Parliament.

Sources said that Kejriwal also informed Anna about the latest controversy over his another close aide - Kiran Bedi against whom Delhi police has filed an FIR accusing Bedi over her involvement in a case of cheating and forgery.

After his meeting with Kejriwal, Anna said, "The nation is waiting for this bill since the last 43 years. If the introduced bill is weak or not introduced and passed in Parliament in the assured time frame, the hope of making India a super power would be lost."

Meanwhile, sources informed that Delhi Municipal Corporation permitted Anna to hold his third round of fast at Ramlila Maidan where he held his hunger strike for the second time.

Here it can be recalled that the Parliament Winter Session 2011, which started from Nov 22, has not yet given any hope to the Indians as it has been adjourning everyday over several disputed issues.

The logjam at the Houses always started with the issues like - Telangana statehood, price rise, Mayawati's plan to spit Uttar Pradesh and using of FDI in retail.
