Anna Hazare begins fast-unto-death

Gandhian Anna Hazare began his fast-unto-death on Sunday at Jantar Mantar. His team members including Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai are already on an indefinite fast.
Inspite of his team asking him not to undergo fast considering his health, Anna decided to go ahead. Initially not much crowd was seen at the venue of the fast leading to debates in the media if the movement had lost its momentum. However, around six to seven thousand crowds came in yesterday.
Anna took on Congress and BJP yesterday saying the country’s future does not lie safe in their hands but said he himself will not fight the elections though he would campaign for those with clean background selected by people.

He also accused the government of cheating them repeatedly on the issue of Lokpal and that he is forced to fast again and again, which is “not a happy thing”. “I will fast until we get Jan Lokpal,” Hazare, whose four-day ultimatum to government on a decision on his demands ended today.
