Hazare to fast again from Aug 16
NEW DELHI: Gandhian activist Anna Hazare on Thursday said he will fast again from August 16 because the government had failed to keep its word on drafting a strong Lokpal bill to fight corruption.

"I stopped my fast at Jantar Mantar (here) because the government assured that our demands will be met. Now that the government is turning its back on the promise, I will fast again from Aug 16," Hazare told reporters.

After Hazare's April 5-9 hunger strike, the government set up a 10-member panel to draft an effective Lokpal bill to curb corruption in high places.
