Social activist Anna Hazare today said his fight against corruption should not and will not stop.

Speaking to reporters after visiting the Ramakrishna Mission Ashram here, Hazare said,'I have been fighting against corruption and bribe since 26 years of my age.' 'One day I was thinking about the nation and at the same time I saw Vivekananda's poster at railway station. Then I got a Vivekananda book. His thoughts changed my life. Selfless life is best to serve the nation. I think with marriage, it becomes difficult to serve the nation and I decided to live a bachelor's life,' the Gandhian added.

The crusader against corruption yesterday visited Kudalasangama where he was presented 'Basava Krishi Award' instituted by Lingayat Panchamasali Jadguru Maha Peetha.
