Modi never replied to my letters, has ‘ego’ of prime ministership: Anna Hazare

Anna Hazare said he has written more than 30 letters to PM Narendra Modi in the last three years but that he never replied to them because he has an ego of his Prime Ministership.

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has an “ego of his Prime Ministership”, and it was the reason why Modi was not responding to his letters.

Hazare was speaking at a public rally in Atpadi tehsil in Maharashtra’s Sangli district on Saturday.

Hazare said, “I have written more than 30 letters to PM Modi in the last three years but he never replied to them. Modi has an ego of his Prime Ministership, hence he did not respond to my letters.”

Hazare had earlier announced that he was going to stage another round of agitations in New Delhi from March 23.

The rally at Atpadi was the first of three Hazare will be addressing in an effort to mobilise support for the March 23 agitation.

“It will be a never-seen-before kind of massive agitation that will be a warning to the government,” he said.

“I have no intention of garnering votes through my rallies and agitations. The way there was a huge rally for Jan Lokpal, I believe there will be a similar agitation on farmers’ issues,” he said.

Hazare said that his demands included implementation of the Lokpal, appointment of a Lokayukta, a pension of Rs 5,000 to farmers and higher rates for farm produce.
