Changes in RTI Act has made it soulless: Hazare

Ahmednagar: Noted social worker Anna Hazare today said the changes to the Right to Information Act has rendered it “soulless” and announced that he will launch an agitation across Maharashtra from August 9.

“The recent changes have rendered the Act soulless with an intention to protect vested interests,” Hazare told PTI at Ralegan Siddhi in the district.

Hazare, who yesterday announced that he will begin a fast-unto-death unless the changes are taken back, said demonstrations have been planned infront of all the district collectorates in Maharashtra.

A decision on the venue of the hunger strike (whether Mumbai or New Delhi) would be taken after consulting workers, Hazare added.
