Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister
Prithviraj Chavan Friday said he had received the letter written by anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare, which seeks introduction of Lokayukta bill in the state legislature.

"I got the letter late in the evening (yesterday). I will reply to it soon," Chavan told reporters today.
Hazare has said in the letter that if the state
government does not bring in a strong Lokayukta bill in the
winter session, he would launch a fast.

Hazare, whose 12-day fast last month for Lokpal bill
hogged global limelight, has also said that the Lokayukta
should get more powers under the proposed state law.
