Ralegan Siddhi (Maharashtra), Feb.22 (ANI): Social activist Anna Hazare is expected in New Delhi today to a strategy to revive the anti-graft movement with his core team members.
Hazare told media in Ralegan Siddhi, Maharashtra, that there was a need to reignite the fire among people so that they can root out corruption.
"Today, there is a meeting in Delhi. The main motive behind this is to decide how the movement would take place in the near future. We have to formulate a strategy for the movement. The people of the country think that the movement has died out. We have to ignite the movement till the corruption is totally rooted out from this country," said Hazare.
Over the past year, India has been transfixed by a campaign led by Anna Hazare to force the government to create an ombudsman, which would prosecute corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.
Hazare's initial hunger strikes brought millions of sympathisers out on the streets and forced the government into a series of humiliating U-turns.
But now, it appears that Team Anna has lost some steam.
When Hazare launched his third hunger strike just before the New Year, hardly anybody turned up, and he had to call it off prematurely because he was ill.
Team Anna's priority will be to fight for a strong ombudsman. But, after that, it could do a lot worse than turn its attention to the transparency side of the anti-corruption agenda. (ANI)
