Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare today asked people to vote conscientiously as he launched the third phase of his Jantantra Yatra here today.
“We must elect individuals capable of delivering and not vote blindly for parties in 2014,” Hazare said while addressing a gathering at Doon Tiraha here.
He said the Jantantra Yatra was meant to awaken people’s ability to bring about a major change in the system and it would continue till an independent Lokpal was set up.
Hazare will conduct his public awakening campaign in about 50 places in Uttarakhand before concluding the third phase of his yatra in Rudrapur later this month.
He had kicked off his yatra from the martyrs’ memorial at Amritsar’s Jallianwala Bagh on March 31.
On the eve of the launch of the third phase of his yatra,Hazare had participated in the Ganga Arti programme on the banks of the river here with Parmarth Niketan chief Swami Chidanand Saraswati.
