New Delhi, Mar 25: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Sunday, Mar 25, began his token one day fast at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. Anna expressed his dissent over the UPA government's plan for a separate bill for whistleblowers.

While Narendra Kumar's kins are likely to participate the fast in New Delhi. Anna has criticised government's silence over the death of whistleblowers.

Due to the poor health, Anna called off his three-day fast in Mumbai last year.

Speaking to presspersons, Anna said "Their (whistleblowers') mothers, their children, their fathers, their wives are crying for justice. But this government has gone dumb and deaf. It is not listening to the cries of people. There will be a big struggle. Then the government will listen. The government came up with MNREGA but these people were killed for trying to improve it." Many people have sacrificed their lives while fighting for corruption, he added.

Meanwhile, family members of slain IPS officer of Madhya Pradesh have participated in the day long fast.
