New Delhi: Amid continuing deadlock between government and Team Anna Hazare on Lokpal, the Gandhian on Thursday wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the issue.
“Anna has written a letter to the prime minister and a response is awaited. Once Anna gets the reply, he will brief you,” activist Manish Sisodia told the social activist’s supporters.
However, the contents of Hazare’s letter were not disclosed by Sisodia.
The letter was sent through senior Maharashtrian leader and union minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who met the Gandhian who is on his tenth day of his fast.
Sources said Hazare has sought written assurances from the government on some issues in the Lokpal bill.
Following Prime Minister Singh’s speech, Lok Sabha or Lower House on Thursday unanimously appealed to Hazare to end his hunger strike as his life was “much too precious”.
The prime minister had on 23 August reached out to him with an appeal for ending fast and a promise that his Jan Lokpal Bill could be considered by Parliament along with the government draft.
