Hazare warns of another Ramlila stir over Lokpal

New Delhi, Feb 1: Activist Anna Hazare on Friday accused the government of betrayal on the issue of making Lokpal a strong tool to curb corruption and dismissed the proposed legislation as “ineffective”.

Demanding making the CBI and the CVC as independent bodies on par with the Election Commission, Mr. Hazare said if required he may again go back to the Ramlila Maidan to press for an effective Lokpal.

“The government has been betraying us and people of the country repeatedly... If required I will go back to Ramlila Maidan to demand a strong and effective Lokpal Bill,” Mr. Hazare said addressing a press conference.

Rejecting the Lokpal Bill cleared by the Cabinet on Thursday, Mr. Hazare said the fight against corruption will not be effective if the government did not relinquish its control over the CBI and the CVC.

“Due to government control over the CBI and the CVC, corruption has increased. Both these bodies must be made autonomous like the Election Commission,” he said.

Mr. Hazare also criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh accusing him of failing to keep his promise on specific demands based on which he had ended his 12-day fast in August 2011.

The Union Cabinet on Thursday amended the controversial Lokpal Bill, delinking it from the setting up of Lokayuktas in the States and transferring powers of sanction of prosecution against public servant to the ombudsman.

The Cabinet accepted 14 of the 16 recommendations made by the Rajya Sabha Select Committee, which was set up in May 2012 amid sharp differences among political parties because of which the legislation was stuck in the Upper House since December 2011.

The approval of the official amendments paves the way for consideration of the bill afresh by the Rajya Sabha during the Budget Session.

Mr. Hazare said he will travel across the country to make people aware about “government’s betrayal” and to motivate them to elect those with clean image in the 2014 elections.
