'Govt is now showing its true face'
Giving a call for nation-wide agitation, Hazare said the time has now come that people now demonstrate against the government which is showing its true face, that of dictators and "Black Britishers".
He appealed that the nine-day movement which had remained peaceful till now should continue to be so. He asked his supporters not to destroy any property.
"Fill the jails in a non-violent manner. No jail in the country should remain empty," Hazare said.
