he said adding government will have to bring Lokpal Bill before next general elections. However, Hazare said the movement's intention is not to assemble crowds but bring about a change in the system.

Touching upon land acquisition, he alleged government was "gifting" farmers' land to foreign companies. "If farmers don't leave their land, first they use lathis. If they continue to resist, then bullets are fired on them.

"...it is necessary to stop foreign companies from coming to the country. These foreign companies are privatising water, rivers, forests. If we do not stop them today, then the future will be bleak," he said.

On the issue of using the name IAC, Hazare said he was not for confrontation and if Kejriwal-led group gives it, he will take it. "Earlier you remember, my photo was in the banners of IAC," he said indicating that he would prefer to use it.

However, Bedi said it was not Hazare who moved out of the movement but others (Kejriwal-led group). "They will be announcing the new name of the party. So, it won't be a problem on the name," she said.
