Anna Hazare
Ahmednagar, Apr 11: Preparations are in full swing here to welcome veteran Gandhian and anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, who will reach his village Ralegan Siddhi here today (Apr 11) from Delhi, after government gave into his demands on the Jan Lokpal Bill.

The village in Parner tehsil saw people hoisting ''gudis'' to celebrate the grand victory of the noted activist. An attractive cracker show has been arranged to welcome Hazare.

Also, huge amount of sweets have been prepared for distribution on the occasion. Bhajan and lezim mandals from all over district have reached Ralegan to accord a warm homecoming to Hazare, who broke his 98-hour-long fast on Saturday after the government issued a notification for drafting an effective Lokpal Bill.

Anna is coming to Pune from Delhi by a flight at 4 p.m and is scheduled to reach Ralegan by 6 pm, Asawa said.
