The Sultan Bazaar traders’ Joint Action Committee will go on a protest fast on Tuesday in front of Andhra Bank, Sultan Bazaar, to extend its support to Anna Hazare at 9am. Traders, freedom fighters, politicians and citizens will join them at the fast that will continue until 5pm.
Govind Rathi, president of Sultan Bazaar traders’ JAC, said the office of the prime minister should be included in the Lokpal bill. “If the prime minister has nothing to hide, why should there be any resistance to it? Curbing the right to protest of people does not reflect democracy”. In addition to mustering support for the Hazare cause, Rathi also added that opposition to metro rail, that would derail the lives of Sultan Bazaar traders, will figure on the agenda. TOI
