Patna, Jan 29 — Unhappy over delay in parliament passing the Lokpal Bill, Anna Hazare Tuesday accused the Congress-led UPA government of cheating him and people.

"The central government has been cheating us over the issue (passing the Lokpal Bill)," Hazare said at a press conference here.

In reference to United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi's letter to him in which she promised that the Lokpal Bill will be passed in coming session of parliament, Hazare said that there was nothing new in the letter.

"I have been assured through letters for last two years that Lokpal Bill will be passed soon but it is yet to pass," he said.

Hazare claimed that the government had no intention of ending corruption. "The government's intention is not clear on this issue," he said.

Hazare was welcomed by hundreds of his supporters at the airport Tuesday when he arrived ahead of his 'Jantantra' rally Wednesday.

Hazare, who is staying at legendary socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan's house here, said that Patna has been chosen to follow the legacy of JP's (as Narayan was popularly known) anti-corruption movement and to fulfill his dream of total revolution.

He announced that after the Patna rally, he will visit four other states in February and other states from March to create awareness among people and to unite them for change in the system in the country.

Hazare asserted that he will continue his fight for changing the system till he is alive.
