The 74-year-old Gandhian resumes his campaign to protest against the death of Madhya Pradesh IPS officer Narendra Kumar, who was killed by suspected mining mafia in Madhya Pradesh. 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.
