Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has alleged PM Modi has an "ego of his Prime Ministership", adding that that's why Modi hadn't replied to his letters, while addressing a rally in Atpadi tehsil in Sangli district yesterday.

"I have written more than 30 letters to PM Modi in the last three years, but he never replied to them. Modi has an ego of his Prime Ministership..." Hazare had announced that he was going to stage another round of agitations in New Delhi from March 23. The rally at Atpadi yesterday was the first of the three rallies Hazare will be addressing in an effort to mobilise support for the March 23 agitation.

"I have no intention of garnering votes through my rallies. The way there was a huge rally for Jan Lokpal, there will be a similar agitation on farmers' issues."
His demands include implementation of Lokpal, appointment of a Lokayukta, a pension of R5,000 to farmers and higher rates for farm produce.
