Anna Hazare
Ranchi, Aug 20: When the nation-wide support for Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare is swelling, a new demand has been popped up in Jharkhand. Many started demanding to dedicate a special chapter for Anna Hazare's movement in the school syllabus of the state.

On Satrday, Aug 20, Jharkhand human resource development minister Baijnath Ram has been quoted as saying, "When the Vinoba Bhave movement, the anti-British Quit India movement could be included in school syllabus, why can't the Anna movement be included?"

Expressing their inclination towards the demand, the minister also informed, "We will talk to chief minister Arjun Munda over the issue."

Jharkhand is one of the places where supports for 74-year-old Gandhian were flowed from all sides of the society. Students, lawyers, businessman - all came on road on Friday, Aug 20 expressing their support for Anna's struggle - India Against Corruption.

Anna and his aides termed their struggle for Jan Lokpal Bill as the second freedom struggle and citing the present situation, it seems that Anna Hazare might be included in school syllabus.
