Mumbai: Social activist Anna Hazare today said he will once again launch a fresh agitation against the Narendra Modi government on the Lokpal issue.

"The Modi government has not implemented the Lokpal Act even after 365 days of the President signing it. Modi government has not fulfilled assurances made to people," Hazare said.

"The government is not serious on the issue of corruption," Hazare said.

"That is why an agitation will be launched once again on Lokpal, land acquisition act and black money," he said in a statement this evening from Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district.

"On black money, Modi said each Indian will get Rs 15 lakh when black money is brought back but people have not got even Rs 15," Hazare said.

He also said he had nothing to comment on former associates Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal. "I will tread my path alone," he said.
