Haryana April 8: Anti- corruption crusader, Anna Hazare during the Jantantra Yatra in Haryana said that a "mere change of a political party at the Centre will not make a difference because the entire system requires overhauling.

He said that he is fighting for the Jan Lokpal Bill stating that 'corrupt leaders and bureaucracy had weakened the country'.

He criticised the Centre for the situation of farmers. "Land is being snatched from farmers. They are compelled to commit suicide. But, it won't last long. The leaders at the helm will face the consequences."

He added that the 'day was not far when people would unite and corrupt leaders would be in jail'. "The youth of the nation has woken up."

Gen VK Singh, Former army chief who is touring with Hazare, said: "The situation in the country is grim. One can get pizza at home in 20 minutes but a dying person cannot get an ambulance in hours."

The anti-corruption activist will address a public meeting both in Roorkee and Dehradun on April 16 and issue an appeal to people to cleanse the political system of its ills. Hazare will first address a public meeting at Roorkee and then proceed to the state capital to address people at the parade ground, he said. He will address a public meeting at Haridwar on April 17.
