Bareilly: Social activist and anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare on Thursday said a fresh agitation would be launched in Delhi to press for the passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill by the Parliament.

"Hunger strikes would be started for Jan Lokpal once again at Ramlila ground in Delhi from December. This time the slogan would be, bring Jan Lokpal or go out," he said during his ongoing Jantantra yatra.

Hazare said India Against Corruption would be renamed as Jantantra Morcha.

He said that political parties do not give tickets to candidates to contest elections on the basis of character, but on the basis of money and muscle power. "163 tainted MPs and 15 Ministers are facing corruption charges," he claimed.

"Our fault is that we elect persons to whom parties give ticket and therefore, we are facing the consequences. We should resolve that… we will not vote for goons and corrupt persons. Only then, a true democracy would be established," he said.

Hazare said that his struggle was not limited to Jan Lokpal, but to "get democracy implemented in its true sense."
