Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan on Friday said he would soon reply to anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare's letter seeking introduction of a strong Lokayukta bill in the winter session of the state legislature.

"I got the letter late in the evening (on Thursday). I will reply to it soon," Chavan told reporters here.

Hazare has threatened in the letter to launch a fast if the state government does not bring in a strong Lokayukta bill in the winter session.

Hazare, whose 12-day fast in Delhi last month for a strong Lokpal bill hogged global limelight, has also said that the Lokayukta should get more powers under the proposed state law.
