Anna Hazare reveals that his life is under threat

Anna Hazare
Ambala (Haryana), April 5: Anti- corruption crusader Anna Hazare who began his 'Jantantra Yatra' recently, revealed that his life is under threat.

Hazare claimed that supari has been given to kill him. "But I have faith in God and am not afraid of such type of threats," he said while addressing an audience at Thapar Ground in Ambala.

With reference to the Lokpal bill, he said that he was looking to the public to provide support. He described the movement against corruption as a 'second struggle for independence'.

He once again emphasised that he would neither form any political party nor support any particular candidate from a political party.

Appeal to Arvind Kejriwal

As it is almost a fortnight since leader of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal began his indefinite fast against the 'inflated' prices of utility bills, Hazare once again asked Kejriwal to call off the hunger strike owing to his deteriorating health.

Hazare was quoted as saying that 'Kejriwal's life was important to the fight against corruption as he has a lot to do for the society'.

On March 30, Hazare had made a similar appeal to Kejriwal.

Kejriwal recently announced that the 'next course of the Civil Disobedience Movement will start from 6 April. Incidentally, it coincides with the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi completing his Dandi march.

Reports say, Kejriwal has lost 7 kgs during his ongoing fast. However, doctors looking after him confirmed that in spite of weight loss, Kejriwal's vitals are normal.
