New Delhi: A day before activist Anna Hazare sits on dharna at Jantar Mantar, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said there is no trust deficit between the government, civil society and other stakeholders.

Addressing industrialists at a Ficci meeting here, the he said the government needs cooperation from all stakeholders, including the industry.

"Let me assure you that there is no trust deficit and without the cooperation of industry, the larger political establishment and civil society we cannot be equal to the gigantic task at hand," he said.

Hazare will be sitting on a day long fast at Jantar Mantar here to press for protection of those who blow whistle against corruption.

In the backdrop of several scams, the government has been facing pressure from sections of civil society for a strong Lokpal Bill against corruption.
