Eradicating corruption without electoral reforms not possible: Hazare 27.2.2018 General News
Eradicating political corruption without reforming the electoral process is not possible, social activist Anna Hazare said today even as he accused the Narendra Modi government of bringing in a weak lokpal. "The Modi government has brought a weak Lokpal. The government talks about a corruption free system but it seems it has no intention of bringing a strong Lokpal," Hazare said addressing a meeting here. He attacked the previous UPA government for not bringing in a Lokpal bill despite a promise by former prime minister Manmohan Singh. Hazare said he will hold a 'satyagraha' in Delhi on March 23 to highlight problems faced by farmers, the Jan Lokpal issue and the need for electoral reforms. Hazare was on a two-day visit to UP to garner support for the proposed Satyagraha. The social activist, who was the face of anti-corruption protests in 2011, had last year chosen March 23 as the day to launch his 'satyagraha' as it happens to be Martyr's Day.
