Delhi,Politics, Sun, 25 Mar 2012 IANS

New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) Social activist Anna Hazare Sunday broke his one-day token fast demanding an all-powerful anti-graft legislation and a strong legal protection for whistle-blowers.


The 74-year-old activist asked the people to "keep up the pressure" on the government for passing the Jan Lokpal bill, a strong anti-graft legislation proposed by his team.


"The government's intention is not to pass the Jan Lokpal bill... But one day they will have to do it because the public has woken up," Hazare thundered before he broke the fast at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi.


According to police estimates, some 2,000 supporters were at the venue for the anti-corruption mass protest also attended by his team members Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal, Santosh Hegde, Shanti Bhushan and others.
