Anna Hazare on Monday said that people's mandate is no longer with the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government and it would get reflected in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Asked to comment on the Prime Minister rejecting the opposition BJP's demand for resignation on the coal allocation issue, Hazare told reporters here: "(following corruption scandals) People's mandate is not with them (now). It will show in 2014 (Lok Sabha poll)".

After a week-long rejuvenation treatment at Jindal Nature Care Institute in Bangalore, he said he feels fighting-fit.

"I am alright now and ready for fight as well (crusade against corruption). I will travel around the country and visit the states to awaken the people. Fight will continue till the country becomes corruption-free," Hazare said.

He also rejected suggestions of differences in the erstwhile Team Anna, which he disbanded recently. "You will see that we will fight unitedly".
