Solapur: Union Power Minister Sushilkumar
Shinde said here on Sunday that if the Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh wanted him to be a mediator and talk to the social
activist Anna Hazare, he was willing.

Shinde, a former Maharashtra Chief Minister, knows the
73-year-old anti-corruption crusader well.
Talking to reporters here, his hometown, Shinde said that
government wanted to curb the corruption, but there was no
quick-fix.
He refused to answer when asked whether Hazare`s campaign
was justifiable, but said the Prime Minister would resolve the
situation soon.
