Udaipur: Social activist Anna Hazare on Saturday
vowed to go ahead with his hunger strike on August 16 to press
for a stronger Lokpal and said he would court arrest if police
intervened.
He told reporters in Rajasamund that he was determined to
go on fast, come what may.

When pointed out that the government has not given
permission for his hunger strike, Hazare said if police arrive
he would court arrest.

To a question about the central government’s decision to
stop his agitation, he remarked this is "violation" of the
Constitution.
Asked about yoga guru Ramdev’s participation in his
proposed agitation, Hazare refused to comment.
