Pune: In a scathing attack on the Central
Government, social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday said it consists
of people "who are drunk with power".
The Gandhian was reacting to a query on whether he would
be compelled to undertake a fast unto death in the absence of
a positive response from the government in incorporating the
provisions suggested by the civil society in drafting a strong
Lokpal bill, widening its scope and purview.

"There are persons in the government who are drunk with
power. I cannot say that I will not be required to undertake
the fast on August 16. I am ready for any eventuality," he
told reporters here.
Referring to Digvijay Singh`s reported remarks, which the
Congress general secretary subsequently denied, that Hazare`s
agitation would meet the same fate as that of yoga guru Baba
Ramdev`s, the activist said, "This means that they have not
understood the meaning of democracy which gives every citizen
a right to agitate to protect the interests of the nation and
its people."

"If required we will face bullets not just lathis without
adopting any violent methods, following the path of Ahimsa,"
he added.
