Anna Hazare calls for a movement against corruption

India is preparing to fight against corruption. In a nation beset by scams, people are demanding a strong law that will not only indict the corrupt but also send them to jail and recover the stolen public money.

Anna Hazare has demanded the enactment of a Jan Lokpal bill against corruption. The bill, meant to involve public participation and not leave it up to the politicians, has been drafted by Justice Santosh Hegde, Prashant Bhushan and other civil society members who have been in the fight for probity in public life. Anna, known for his work in creating the model village of Ralegan Siddhi, has declared that he will begin an indefinite fast from April 5th, at Jantar Mantar, Delhi, and will use Gandhian methods of non violent protest, jail bharo and fasting to achieve goals.
