Anna Hazare visits Punjab's Hussainiwala to pay tributes to martyrs
After "Not of The Above (NOTA)", the next campaign will be for introduction of "Right To Reject" (RTR) and with its introduction, the circumstances will automatically change, claimed Anna Hazare, the anti-corruption crusader while sitting on a fast at Hussainiwal in Punjab, after paying floral tributes to martyrs- Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, B.K. Dutt and Punjab Mata.

Anna Hazare said, "The election of Prime Minister and President should also be direct in case we want to bring reform in the system and Lokpal in the country."

Expressing his concern, Anna Hazare said, "No doubt there had been move to change the power in the country during the last more than six decades but no efforts have been made to change the system with the result, corruption and black marketing are is on the high in the country and there is no entry of honest and good character persons in our Parliament."

In reply to a question from the media, Anna said, ?Personally, I am not against anyone and I am only working to fulfil the dream of martyrs, eradicate corruption, to bring India at the global level and to change the existing system.?

Anna added, ?Neither I am linked with any political party nor I have joined any party. Even I will not form any political party. I want to create awareness among the people of the country like a common man to bring Lokpal in the country.

He further said, "I have been successful in passing of Lokpal Bill, with the efforts and support of people. The people have the biggest power and can do anything."

In reply to a question with regard to giving support to Mamta Banejree, he said, "I have given support to Mamta as a person and not as political party and I will not speak against politics and political parties."

"My aim is to build the nation with honest government." Giving a reference of Mahatma Gandhi, he said, "Gandhi, three days before his sacrifice, had said, the country has got the freedom constitutionally but not socially and economically."

He categorically said that most of the political parties are giving tickets to the corrupt persons by taking heavy funds and some people cast their votes by taking small amount and a bottle of liquor.

Anna said, the people should understand the value of their votes and cast their vote in favour of honest, laborious and educated candidate so that good people have entry in the Parliament.

"I don't want to say anything about Kejriwal and other associates as now a days the race is for money and power," said Anna,

He straightway in his tuning style said, "Even if I get a chance to become PM, I will not opt, as one gets pleasure while working as a common man for the country."
