Anna Hazare fast unto death.
This veteranÂ old man is fastingÂ not for him, but for all of us and our children. Let us join him in this crusade against corruption which is rampantÂ in all walks of life in India today.I use this little space of my blog to give my support to Anna Hazare campaign. Please show him support in any way you can, if you are an Indian.
Social activist Anna Hazare’s fast-unto-death entered the third day in Delhi even as a large number of people from various walks of life continued to extend support to the crusader for a stronger anti-corruption law.
72-year-old Hazare’s protest has led to the resignation of Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar from the Group of Ministers on corruption after the Gandhian took potshots at him.
The silent campaign against corruption which entered its second day garnered massive support from public as IT professionals, founders of NGOs, and students gathered in large numbers to express their solidarity.
Since the fast started on Tuesday, people from all walks of life including students, senior citizens, actors, executives and activists are converging at the Jantar Mantar, the hotspot of protests in the capital, to lend support to the movement.
However, some politicians like Ajit Singh, Uma Bharti and O P Chautala who wanted to make common cause with the social activist and share the dais with him were shouted out by his supporters and had to make a hasty retreat. Hazare said the indefinite hunger strike does not have a political tone.
The activist is demanding enactment of Jan Lokpal Bill as the legislation proposed by the government was not adequate and lacked teeth. He has maintained that a joint committee, comprising representatives of the government and civil society, should be set up to firm up the bill.
Crime and corruption is rampant in India and let us fight against it, by joining Anna Hazare
