Mr Hazare was speaking at a public rally in Atpadi tehsil in Maharashtra's Sangli district on Saturday. "I have written more than 30 letters to Prime Minister Modi in the last three years, but he never replied to them. Modi has an ego of his prime ministership, hence he did not respond to my letters," Mr Hazare claimed.
Earlier, Mr Hazare had announced that he is planning to stage another round of agitations in New Delhi from March 23. The rally at Atpadi yesterday was the first of three rallies that Mr Hazare will be addressing in an effort to mobilise support for the March 23 agitation.
Mr Hazare said that his demands included implementation of the Lokpal, appointment of a Lokayukta, a pension of Rs 5,000 to farmers and higher rates for farm produce.
