Hazare's fast enters day two
Ralegan Siddhi, Dec 11: A day after going on his indefinite fast, social activist Anna Hazare on Wednesday said that he won't crumble under government pressure this time. He said it will be a do or die situation.

Hazare began his indefinite fast here for the Jan Lokpal Bill on Tuesday. He said: "I have heard many rumours that they will move me from here saying my health is not good. If this happens, then I will stop drinking water. They had betrayed us at the time of Jan Lokpal Bill agitation in Delhi," he said.

He also said that doctors were arranged and present to keep a check on his health while he is on fast. "If my health deteriorates genuinely, then you can do whatever you want," he said.

Demanding for the inclusion of the Lokpal Bill in the parliament he said that the Rajya Sabha must debate on it. "After Rajya Sabha passes it, it can be easily passes in the Lok Sabha as they have done earlier also," he added.

However this time the crowd to support Hazare was a lot less considering the initial days last year. Hazare said that he had appealed to the people in Mahrastra to hold their agitation in their respective districts.
