Anna Hazare Continous at Ramlila Maidan, launches hunger strike

Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare on Friday launched what he called an indefinite fast in support of the Jan Lokpal Bill at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan and vowed to stay put until the legislation entered Parliament.

"The fire of revolution should keep burning. I will not leave Ramlila Maidan until the Jan Lokpal Bill is tabled in Parliament. We will not allow traitors to plunder the wealth of the nation," Hazare told thousands at the Maidan, where the police have permitted him a 15-day fast.

"We want to ensure justice for the common man. The youth of the country have awakened. I may have lost weight (with fasting) but my enthusiasm has not waned," said Hazare, who has been on a hunger strike ever since he was lodged at Tihar Jail on Tuesday.
