During the UPA regime led by Manmohan Singh, Hazare went to Delhi twice and staged massive agitations.
'The Union government has agreed to some of my demands and also announced setting up a committee to improve the lives of farmers', said Anna Hazare.
'The government is just giving empty promises due to which I do not have any trust left,' says the 83-year-old activist
Hazare's demands include granting autonomy to the CAPC and implementing Swaminathan Commission recommendations

Calling former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh a 'good man', AAP supremo, Arvind Kejriwal said it was him who shielded India from the global economic recession in 2008 by taking a series of timely measures.
The veteran Gandhian said using the sacrifices of martyrs for seeking votes was saddening. "When the trend is to do anything to come to power, such misuse is seen and voters are sleeping," Hazare said.
Social activist Anna Hazare broke his week-long fast on February 5 but was admitted to a hospital after complaining of weakness due to lack of blood supply to his brain on Thursday.
Fadnavis, who reached Hazare's native Ralegan Siddhi village in Ahmednagar district in the afternoon and held prolonged talks with him, said the government has accepted the activist's demands.
Hazare's strong remarks came on the sixth day of his indefinite hunger strike and a day after he threatened to return his Padma Bhushan - India's third highest civilian honour - if his demands were not conceded by the government soon.
MNS chief Raj Thackeray and noted water conservationist Rajendra Singh on Monday met social activist Anna Hazare in Maharashtra.
Anna Hazare, an anti-corruption crusader, was awarded the third highest civilian honour in 1992.
Around 5,000 farmers from the district are likely to stage a protect outside the Ahmednagar collector's office on Monday to support Hazare's agitation.
On Thursday, Malik had accused Hazare of being an "RSS and Sangh Parivar agent", but the party immediately distanced itself from his remarks.
Maharashtra Minister Girish Mahajan, who has been acting as an emissary between the government and the activist, urged Hazare to cancel the agitation, claiming that almost all the demands made by the activist have been fulfilled.
This will be Anna Hazare's third hunger strike over the demand of Lokpal in the last eight years. Leading civil society members and groups, he sat on an indefinite hunger strike in Delhi for the first time in April 2011.
The 81-year-old anti-corruption crusader, however, warned that he would launch the protest on January 30, the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, if the government failed to fulfil his demands.
