Anna Hazare heads to Delhi to hold token fast

Pune : Social activist Anna Hazare early Saturday left for New Delhi to hold his daylong token fast Sunday to protest against the government’s version of the Lokpal bill.

He said he will continue his fight for a strong Jan Lokpal Bill .

“I will not rest till a strong Jan Lok Pal bill is in place I will fight to achive this till my last breath ,” Hazare told his supporters in Pune.

“If the government fails to enact the bill soon by Dec 27, I will go on indefinite hunger strike,” he said.

Hazare Friday criticised the union government and blamed Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi among others for preparing a weak Lok Pal bill which was tabled in Parliament Friday .

Hazare is scheduled to fast at Jantar Mantar. In August , Hazare sat on an indefinite fast and broke it only after parliament agreed to three important demands of his civil society group to fight corruption.
