Should there be a provision for jail under RTI?
Addressing the India Today Conclave, Anna Hazare threatened to launch a ‘big protest’ for a strong Lokpal bill. He said that he would campaign for a strong Lokpal Bill till the next Lok Sabha elections in 2014. He further said that if a strong Lokpal does not come by then, he will sit in protest in Ramlila Maidan in Delhi after the declaration of polls.
Speaking during the session titled 'Yeh Dil Maange No More Corruption', Anna Hazare said that the RTI Act provides information on various issues but the RTI does not have the power to send people to jails for which an "effective" anti-corruption legislation in the form of a strong Lokpal Bill is needed.
