Varanasi, Apr 29 : Gandhian Anna Hazare today asked the people for repeat of a sit-in protest at Delhi's Jantar Mantar if the government does not pass the Jan Lokpal Bill within the stipulated time.
Addressing an ‘India Against Corruption' rally here over phone from Pune, he said, “The country has not attained freedom in its true sense yet and we have to fight a second freedom struggle. We are prepared to go to jail for that.” Hazare said elimination of corruption in the country would start from the day the Jan Lokpal Bill is made into law. “We have to fight another battle for a corruption-free India and our youth power has to rise up for it.” The social activist said youth power is the power of the country and once they become aware no one can stop them. Owing to health grounds, Hazare has said that he will not be able to attend the Uttar Pradesh leg of the nation-wide ‘India Against Corruption' rallies and would address the people over the phone.
Other social activists Arvind Kejriwal, Swami Agnivesh, satirist and actor Jaspal Bhatti also addressed the rally. PTI
