Speaking at the press meet held at press club on Aug 11, Thursday, T R Bhat said that

It looks like the government is not willing to eradicate corruption. This is our best chance to take affirmative steps to eradicate corruption in our country. We call upon the citizens of Mangalore to support Anna Hazare’s “Second Freedom Struggle” to free the country from all sorts of corruption and corrupt practices.

In support and solidarity of ‘Jan Lokpal Bill’ and Anna’s fight against corruption, we the citizens of Mangalore have decided to sit on fast in solidarity from 10 AM to 6 PM, August 16, 2011 at the entrance of the Deputy Commissioner’s office, State Bank circle, Mangalore.

He also said that, the government has betrayed whole nation by clearing the draft of the Lokpal Bill that excludes very important clauses of the Jan Lokpal Bill drafted by the Anna Hazare team.

He informed that, the government team had projected readiness to Team Anna Hazare and people’s draft. But the government has tabled a Lokpal Bill that falls short of citizen’s expectations in their interest and actions in curbing corruption.

T R Bhat, Convener, D K Anti-corruption Forum, Jyothika Jain, Dinesh Ulepadi, Vidya Dinker, V U George and members of various Unions and NGOs were present in the Press meet.
