Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 19: Strongly determined and passionate over his noble cause for eradicating corruption, 72-year-old Anna has pulled up the nation's support from every nook and corner. The Gandhian crusador, sticking strongly over his demands, claimed that he won't leave the Ramlila Madian unless the Jan Lokpal Bill was passed by Parliament.

"We will not leave this place till the (stronger) Lokpal bill is passed," Hazare told crowds soon after reaching Ramlila ground in central Delhi where he will continue his fast.

"The countrymen should not lose this spirit. This is our fight against corruption. I have lost 3 kgs but I am getting energy from my supporters across the country. I have full faith in my country. This government has looted the country. We will now only sit in peace when the corruption gets removed from the country. Till Jan Lokpal Bill is passed, we will not leave Ramlila Maidan," announced Hazare as thousands of his supporters waved the Indian flag and shouted slogans in his favour.

Team Anna on Aug 19 said that the 15-day fast for a strong Lokpal Bill may go beyond the period depending upon the government's response to the agitation. But, on other hand, the team have been granted permission to fast till Sep 2 at Ramlila Maidan. Anna Hazare has also signed the undertaking presented by the government and agreed to the conditions of the 15 days fast. Its the time to watch Anna's 15 days hunger strike, supported by the entire nation and government's reaction to this fast.
