Team Anna to fast from July 25
Team Anna threatened to fast from July 25 at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar if the govt doesn`t investigate corruption charges against 14 ministers.
New Delhi: Team Anna on Monday threatened to start a fresh agitation from July 25 at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar if the government does not investigate corruption charges against 14 Cabinet ministers named by them.
Gandhian Anna Hazare will stage a sit-in and his close associates will go on an indefinite fast from July 25, sources in Team Anna said.
A Team Anna member said that the decision was taken as they feel the government was "not serious" about bringing the Lokpal Bill.
Team Anna accused the Congress-led UPA government of deliberately stalling the Lokpal Bill.
Addressing reporters at Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare said “The Congress-led UPA government does not want a Lokpal".
"It is going back on its words on constituting a strong Lokpal to check corruption in the country”, he added.
The government, today, referred the Lokpal Bill to Parliament`s Select Committee.
