Volunteers of India against Corruption (IAC) will on Tuesday revive the Lokpal agitation, two years after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had promised anti-graft activist Anna Hazare about the Lokpal resolution passed in Parliament.

"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.
