New Delhi, Dec 11: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Sunday threatened the centre to intensify his protests by courting arrest if centre fails to pass the strong lokpal bill.

While addressing the huge crowd at Jantar Mantar, Anna said that “The government should listen to the voice of the people. Agitation will continue for a strong Lokpal.”

Hazare persuaded the politicians to fight for a strong Lokpal inside the parliament and force the government to pass an effective law.

“You fight inside parliament, we will fight outside. If the government disagrees you should join us in street protests,” Anna added.

Anna received applause from his supporters when he announced that he and his supporters would intensify their protests and let themselves get arrested to fill the jails of the country.

Earlier, the politicians supported Anna for the strong lokpal bill but now they cautioned him not to be rigid on his own version of the bill.
