Mumbai, Jan 22: Social activist Anna Hazare has alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has an “ego of his prime ministership” and claimed it was the reason why the prime minister didn’t respond to his letters.
While addressing a public rally in Atpadi tehsil in Maharashtra’s Sangli district, 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”.
Earlier, Anti-corruption crusader had announced that he was going to stage another round of protests in New Delhi, starting from March 23.
“It will be a never-seen-before kind of massive agitation that will be a warning to the government,” he asserted.
“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.”
Hazare stated that his demands include implementation of the Lokpal, appointment of a Lokayukta, a pension of Rs. 5,000 to farmers and higher rates for farm produce.
