Indian activist says he is willing to die to end corruption
Hazare is demanding that a long-pending citizen ombudsman legislation, called the Lokpal bill, be widened in its scope.

Singh's office noted in a statement that the prime minister met with Hazare and his colleagues last month. "I appreciate and share your concern on corruption," the statement quoted Singh as having told Hazare. Nonetheless, a subsequent meeting between social activists and a federal committee ended unsuccessfully over demands the government accept their version of the bill in totality, Singh's office said.
