Earlier, this month, Hazare is taking a month’s break after being discharged from a hospital. He fell ill after preliminary a hunger strike in Mumbai in December and was admitted to a hospital in Pune.
The bill, which predicts setting up an independent Lokpal with the power to prosecute politicians and civil servants, was passed by a parliament’s lower house previous month but stalled in the upper house.
The bill will now have to be taken up again in the next session of parliament.
In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Hazare said that his movement for a strong anti-corruption ombudsman would persist.
