Bangalore: Anti-graft activist Anna Hazare
on Saturday appeared to target Congress President Sonia Gandhi,
saying "remote control" is creating "problems" even as he
praised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as a "good person".
"Prime Minister is a good person. Prime Minister is not
bad. Problem comes because of the remote control," he told a
public meeting, in an obvious reference to the Congress
President without naming her.
Then he went on to say: "Now, we are all confident that
in every government, people`s power is the strongest."
Hazare said if the Lokpal bill is not enacted by August
16, he would return to Jantar Mantar to hold fast-to-death
protest and urged people of Karnataka for a "jail-bharo" (fill
prison movement) then.
He also said six ministers had to resign because of his
campaign. Without naming them, he said these six tried to take
"revenge" on him but could not touch him because he was not
tainted at all.
