Anna Hazare on indefinite fast at Ramlila Maidan on Saturday
At about 2 pm on August 20, anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare completed 100 hours of his indefinite fast. The 74-year-old Gandhian chose the moment to address the mammoth crowd gathered at the Ramlila Ground who had come from different parts of the country to express their support for Anna Hazare's cause.
Interestingly, now that Team Anna has got the government on the back foot, Hazare decided to broaden his scope of agitation, at times, making political remarks.
"You should not stop just at Lokpal," he stated with a confidence that his version of the Jan Lokpal bill becoming a reality was now inevitable. He exhorted India's youth to come forward and take the reins of the nation in their hands.Anna Hazare on indefinite fast at Ramlila Maidan on Saturday
