NEW DELHI: Social activist Anna Hazare has accused Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of “betrayal” on the Jan Lokpal bill and warned on Sunday of another protest if it was not passed before the 2014 general election. Addressing supporters after inaugurating his new office here, Hazare said: “If Jan Lokpal bill is not passed before the 2014 elections, we will hold another rally at Ramlila Maidan.”
The septuagenarian said Manmohan Singh had betrayed him by not fulfilling his pledge to pass the anti-corruption bill in Parliament. “Our fight for Jan Lokpal bill will continue till it is passed by the government. I will campaign throughout the country and try to raise the conscience of the people. I will try to bring in a change,” he said.
