UPA no longer enjoys the people's mandate: Hazare

September 03, 2012 14:55 IST

Activist Anna Hazare on Monday said that the people's mandate is no longer with the Manmohan Singh-led United Progressive Alliance government and this would get reflected in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Asked to comment on the prime minister rejecting the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party's demand for resignation on the coal allocation issue, Hazare told reporters, "(Following corruption scandals), people's mandate is not with them (now). It will show in 2014 (Lok Sabha poll)".

After a week-long rejuvenation treatment at the Jindal Nature Care Institute in Bangalore, he said he feels fighting fit.

"I am all right now and ready for a fight as well (crusade against corruption). I will travel around the country and visit the states to awaken the people. The fight will continue till the country becomes corruption-free," Hazare said.

He also rejected suggestions of differences in the erstwhile Team Anna, which he disbanded recently.

"You will see that we will fight in an united manner," he said.
