Don't write off Lokpal agitation yet: Medha Patkar

Indore: Social activist Medha Patkar on Sunday said it is not appropriate to conclude that Anna Hazare-led agitation for strong Lokpal Act has failed.

"One should not draw this conclusion that Anna's agitation has failed. Many people are in favour of the movement even today and they extend support to it...One should wait a little before concluding that the agitation has failed," she said.

It would be wrong to say that Hazare's supporters have given up the fight, she said, adding that the real problem was that none of the political parties wanted the Lokpal Act.

One should not draw this conclusion that Anna's agitation has failed, the social activist said.

"In view of this, the rising corruption cannot be curbed by focusing only on a particular law," she said. Patkar, however, said Hazare's supporters should think twice before taking a plunge into politics.
