Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Oct 31: Anti-corruption crusader, Anna Hazare, said that he would break his maun vrat ( vow of silence) in three to four days.

The 74-year-old also said that he would tour around the country and meet those who supported his anti-corruption campaign.

"In the next three to four days I might end my 'maun vrat'. Crores of people have turned to reading my blog all over the world hence I think it would only seem appropriate that I end my 'maun' and hold open discussions with them," he said.

The Gandhian also said that he would "embark on a tour and meet all those young men and women, farmers, working class, school children from all over the world who were a part of this movement against corruption and at times even went to jail for the sake of the cause".

"I have this strong urge from within to meet and talk to all these people who bravely faced the hazards. Hence I would like to end my 'maun' and start off touring different states and hold discussions with them," said Hazare.

"Especially I hope to gather as much energy from these young men and women as I had during my previous movement," said Anna, adding that the "energy" will be utilused to get the Team's version of a strong Jan Lokpal Bill.

He further said that his Team would continue to oppose the Congress party if they failed to pass a strong Lokpal Bill.

"All my countrymen will be connected with me directly in this struggle is my belief," Hazare said.

Hazare has been on his vow of silence since Oct 16.
