Social activist Anna Hazare, who has been pushing relentlessly for the setting up of the lokpal to tackle corruption, is not impressed. He appeared determined to launch his agitation with a day-long dharna at Jantar Mantar in the Capital on Sunday.



“They (the government) were telling us to honour Parliament. The same Parliament has passed a resolution. Why are you not honouring it? Why do you want it (lower bureaucracy) to be left to the states?” Hazare said in his village.


But Hazare appeared to have relented on the inclusion of the prime minister in the ambit of the lokpal.
