Speech highlights of Anna Hazare after he ended his 13-day-fast at Ramlila Maidan

I have only suspended my agitation. I will not rest until all the changes that I look to are achieved.

What had happened in Parliament on Saturday was a victory of the people.

People’s Parliament is bigger than “Parliament in Delhi” that is why Parliament had to listen to people’s Parliament.

This movement has created a faith that the country can be rid of corruption and we can go ahead with implementing laws and the Constitution made by Dr B R Ambedkar.

Fight would now be for Right to Recall and Right to Reject. While Right to Recall would be for those elected, the Right to Reject will be a column in the ballot paper which would ensure the voter has a right to say that he does not like the listed candidates.

We have to reform electoral system. (we need) Right to Reject. You should be able to reject your candidate in the ballot paper. We have to do that.

If majority say they do not like any of the candidates in the fray, the election should be cancelled. How much money they (candidates) will distribute? Once the candidate spends Rs 10 crore for one election and if the election is cancelled, then right sense will dawn upon them.

We have to think about farmers’ problems as well as the woes of labourers and fight for them relentlessly.

Many people have commercialised education. They have opened shops. Children of poor people also should get education. This sector also needs reforms.

Even if Jan Lokpal Bill is fully adopted, we have to continue to carry the flame of this struggle for change. I am confident that Parliament will not reject these demands. Even if it happens, people’s Parliament will not reject these…The fight has just begun.

The Gram Sabhas should have the power to dismiss Gram Panchayats if they spend money without the former’s permission.

Current campaign has given me such inspiration that I will not keep quiet till change is brought.

Through this agitation we have also proved that people’s parliament is supreme than the Parliament in Delhi. Ambedkar has inspired us. He enacted the constitution. We have to fight for them.
