Seven Years Later, Anna Hazare To Start Indefinite Hunger Strike Again For Lokpal Bill

The activist had in 2011 anti-corruption campaign and 12-day hunger strike warned that he would resume his fast if an effective law was not instituted to deal with corruption and misgovernance.

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare will, today, begin his indefinite fast to bring about a competent Lokpal and ensure better production cost for farm produce.

The Gandhian has been pressing for setting up of the Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in the states, besides implementation of the Swaminathan Commission report, which has suggested ways to address the agrarian distress.
