Posted by on April 5, 2011 0 Comment

Social Activist Anna Hazare will begin his indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Tuesday.

With his fast, Hazare is launching a nationwide India against corruption (IAC) movement.

Hazare has been pressing on the introduction of the Lokpal Bill in Parliament as per the recommendations given to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by his IAC group.

Hazare on Monday said that he was diappointed when the Prime Minister rejected the demand by leading civil society members to include them and senior Ministers in the joint committee to draft the Jan Lokpal Bill [Citizen’s Ombudsman Bill].

The Prime Minister’s office on Monday requested Hazare to call off hid hunger strike bur he remained firm on his decision. Agencies
