Anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare on Monday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not appointing a Lokpal and threatened a rerun of his crusade by the end of the year or early next year.
Hazare attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying “he is averse to appoint anyone to the office”.
The announcement came after the octogenarian Gandhian visited Raj Ghat to pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of the 148th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.
“The movement I started for appointing a Lokpal is incomplete, which is why there is a need for another agitation.
“The government failed to appoint a Lokpal in the last three years. In fact, it has weakened the Act (The Lokpal and Lokayukta Act, 2013),” he told reporters at a press conference at the New Maharastra Sadan here.
The new movement, he said, would be launched by the end of the year or early next year.
