New Lokpal Bill draft is useless, says Anna Hazare

January 31, 2013 12:04 IST

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Thursday termed the new draft of the Lokpal Bill as 'bekar' or useless and said he would continue his fight against the government for the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"Naya Lokpal bill ka pararup bekar hain, aisa bill se koi labh nahin hoga,” (the new draft of the Lokpal bill is useless, it won’t be of any good) said Hazare in Patna.

Expressing his displeasure over the new draft of the Lokpal Bill, which is likely to be passed by the cabinet on Thursday, Anna Hazare said his fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill will continue till the government agrees to it.

Anna Hazare said that such a bill will not help fight corruption.

Hazare said his fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill will intensify in the coming months, as he had already announced to go around the country to awaken and organise people for it.
