Gandhian Anna Hazare on Wednesday cautioned the people against powers working to divide the anti-graft movement and appealed for unity in the fight against corruption.
In a letter to the countrymen, the 73-year-old activist said the people need to understand their strategy and further strengthen our fight against corruption.
“I thank you all for your support, but would like to warn you against the powers working to divide us especially after the success of our movement,” he said in his one-page letter.
Hazare said that “if our attention is diverted to misinformation and propaganda being spread by these powers, it will take more time and energy to complete this long journey”.
“My fast-unto-death was not aimed against any government or person but was people’s voice against corruption. I appeal to people to stay united and ignore any kind of rumours,” he added.
Anna Hazare had Saturday called off his 97-hour hour fast for the formation of a stringent anti-graft law after government agreed to almost all of his demands.
The government has formed a 10-member committee comprising five cabinet ministers and five civil society members for drafting a stringent Lokpal Bill.
The committee will meet here April 16.
