A day of celebration with Anna and thousands of supporters against corruption.

12 Days Of Fasting

Anna Hazare, is a social activist and he has served as a soldier for 15 years in Indian army, now at the age of 74 was on fast since 16 august 2011 against the corruption. Anna and his team members wanted to pass Jan Lokpal Bill from which ' 65 percent corruption can be remove from India if government pass this bill ' in Anna's words. I support his because Jan Lokpal Bill if implemented will give teeth to fight corruption effectively. It will acts as an effective deterrent against corruption. Investigation of any corruption case will be initiated and completed within one year and those guilty will be punished within two years. Lokpal will even have the power to persecute corrupt politicians. There will be no interference from politicians and bureaucrats as it will be an independent body like Supreme Court and Election Commission. Therefore, the bill if enacted will act as the most potent weapon in the war against corruption.
During his fast all were praying for his health including me..Anna was feeling weakness but he was not ready to break his fast when doctors told him for a drip and there was no reply from government on Jan Lokpal bill issue. They were just requesting to break his fast but at the last they had to pass Jan Lokpal bill to the standing committee.

Anna Hazare ended his 12 days fast on 28 august morning before thousands of cheering supporters at Ramleela Maidan.

21 August Protest At India Gate

I had decided not to celebrate my birthday which was on 27 August because he was my idol and i was worrying for his health. I participated in Anna's movement and joined a march from India gate to Ramlila Maidan with thousands supporters. It was a great feeling that i got a chance to contribute in this second big movement of India. All the roads towards India Gate and Ramlila Maidan were filled with sea of humanity. Thousands of people participated in dharnas, protest rallies, motorcycle rallies and car rallies in different parts of the country in support of the 74-year-old anti-corruption crusader. Protests were going in different parts of India and in this movement a positive thing is that protests were going with peacefully in whole India.

27 August At Ramleela Maidan

on 27 august i decided to go to the Ramlila Maidan to support Anna's movement. Tens of thousands had also gathered at the Ramlila maidan to fight against the corruption. All supporters were giving their support in favour of Jan Lokpal Bill but they were also worrying for Anna's health. Worry could be seen on every face, of course it was 12 Th day of fasting of Anna Hazare. Bollywood actor Aamir Khan met Anna Hazare at Ramlila Maidan also.
Bharatiya Janata Party MP Sushma Swaraj, during the debate in Lok Sabha, expressed her party's support for Anna Hazare, and said the BJP largely agrees with the three pre-conditions(Citizen's Charter, Lokayuktas in all states with Lokpal powers and inclusion of lowest to highest bureaucracy) laid down by Anna to end his hunger strike and was willing to vote in favour it. Both the houses had passed the resolution agreeing upon all the three conditions set by Anna in Jan Lokpal Bill.
After that Anna declared of breaking fast on Sunday 28 august morning at 10 am as he avoids to do any holy work during Sun-set. In next morning Anna ended his fast after 288 hours before thousands of cheering supporters at Ramlila Maidan. It was a memorable moment for every person who was supporting Anna. A victory march took out at India Gate. Currently, Anna is in Medanta Hospital which is located in Gudgaon. Dr. Naresh Trehan told that Anna is now recovering and will be discharge in 1 or 2 days. I wish him a very healthy and long life from the behalf of whole India.
