New Delhi: Anna Hazare and Yoga guru Baba Ramdev will fast on June 3 to highlight the issues of Jan Lokpal and black money.
Anna met Baba Ramdev in Delhi on Friday and in a joint press conference said that they "must awaken people against corruption". Anna announced that he would undertake a tour of Maharashtra from May 1 to mobilise public opinion on the issue of having a strong "Lokayukta" in the state.
Anna said today"Our aim is not to take down the government. Our aim is the Jan Lokpal Bill. This government was involved in several scams, who knows what the next government will do".
He added"But if the government doesn't understand the people's language, then we don't care for this government".
The social activist yesterday advised the Congress-led UPA government to "shed ego" and get the Jan Lokpal bill passed in current session of Parliament.
He told reporters in Pune yesterday"I am hopeful the Lokpal bill will come up before Parliament before conclusion of current session by May end. The government should shed ego and think of the country and society " .
