Anna Hazare goes on indefinite hunger strike for Lokpal

Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare reached Raj Ghat and goes on an indefinite hunger strike against the Centre. Hazare 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. He has been accompanied with many supporters including social activists. Hazare had earlier said that he would do Satyagraha till his last breath and accused the Central government of not allotting space. The venue of his protest will be the iconic Ramlila Maidan, where he had sat on a hunger strike in 2011 demanding constitution of a Lokpal to investigate cases of corruption.
