Anna Hazare cries betrayal on eve of fast

He castigated the UPA government for continued delay in passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill, pending in the Rajya Sabha, saying it was unbridled corruption that proved Congress’ undoing in Assembly elections in four states.

‘The results of four Assembly polls have shown that people are angry with the present ruling alliance headed by Congress, specially on account of uncontrolled corruption, non-passage of Janlokpal Bill and basic issues affecting the common man,’ Hazare told a news agency.

‘The people have given a mature reaction for strengthening the democratic process. Congress betrayed the people who responded appropriately,’ he said.

‘The Centre lacks the will to end corruption and time has come for it to act on its commitment or leave,’ he said. When prime minister Manmohan Singh can pledge to get the communal violence bill passed in Parliament, why can’t he do the same for the much-delayed anti-graft law, he earlier told a press conference.
