Lucknow,Feb 21: Anna Hazare the anti-corruption crusader who recently began his campaign Janatantra said that his fight would continue until the Right to reject and Right to recall is endorsed by Parliament.

"Our struggle does not end with the Jan Lokpal issue. The struggle for Right to reject and Right to recall was still on. Before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, around six crore people have to be made aware of
it," Hazare was quoted saying.

However, he said that ''change could be brought in the country after efforts of more than two decades and people, especially the youths, should mentally prepare themselves to make sacrifices.''

Hazare rued that after 65 years of Independence, ''farmers' faces have not changed, only the faces of middlemen have changed, Hazare said adding that the village panchayats should be given more rights''.

According to reports, Hazare alleged that Union Minister Kapil Sibal had ''objected to inclusion of people from the masses in the draft committee for the Lokpal Bill''.

Anna Hazare's campaign's have been barely been receiving any response. Most of those present for the campaign include members from India Against Corruption (IAC). Even so, he will be visiting states across the country for the next one and a half years to spread awareness about the Jan Lokpal Bill.
