Anna Hazare said the agrarian issues would be among the crucial issues to be taken up during his agitation this time.

Social activist Anna Hazare in an exclusive interview to India TV said that the 'satyagraha' he plans to launch on March 23 would be bigger than that of 2011. He added that this time he won't share stage with Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal.

Anna, who has been the face of the Lokpal movement, said leaving aside political parties anybody can join him in his protest against the Centre.

He added that the agitation could be held in Delhi jail also since authorities had so far not given permission for the protest despite several requests in four months.

The government was "creating hurdle deliberately" but it would not stop the agitation from happening, Hazare was quoted as saying to IANS.

Hazare plans to hold the protest at the Ramlila Maidan, the place where he held a massive protest and a hunger strike against corruption in 2011.
