Ahmednagar: Veteran Gandhian and anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh regarding the irregularities in the Lavasa project near Pune.

"Builders, politicians and ministers have cheated poor tribes for Lavasa. The rules made for the protection of environment have been violated," Hazare told a news agency.

Narayan Rane, Minister of Revenue, is trying to regularise the project because it is alleged that the daughter and son-in-law of Sharad Pawar are partners in Lavasa, he
said.

Hazare also said that he would observe hunger strike on November 11 protesting the irregularities in Lavasa project and will also return the Padmabhushan award conferred upon him.
