Ralegan Siddhi (Maharashtra): Expressing strong discontent over the government's version of the anti-graft Lokpal Bill, social activist Anna Hazare Thursday vowed to go on fast Aug 16 calling it the country's "second freedom struggle".

"The government is not willing to eradicate corruption. Aug 16 will mark the second freedom struggle in this country," Hazare told reporters at Ralegan Siddhi, 230 km from Mumbai.

"This is one last chance to eradicate corruption. People of India will not get a chance again," he added.

In Ghaziabad, near the Indian capital, civil society activists burnt the copy of the government's version of the bill that was introduced in parliament Thursday.
