"Even after two years, the Parliament has failed to pass the bill. The government has done nothing. We want to wake the government up and send a message that the protest (for Janlokpal) has not died," said Rakesh Rafiq and Sunita Godhara along with scores of IAC volunteers.

The volunteers have announced to hold a 'Prarthana Sabha' at Rajghat on Tuesday which would be followed by a rally till the Red Fort and an organisational meeting to chart out the future plan of action.
