With collage of ministers' photos on stage, Team Anna begins hunger strike
Campaigning for a strong Lokpal Bill, close aides of anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare have started an indefinite fast today to protest against the government. 75-year-old Anna will also go on a hunger strike from July 29, joining fellow team members like Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai.
"The aim is to campaign for a Lokpal Bill... the government is only giving us assurances, but takes no action," Anna said, referring to the anti-graft legislation that has been his movement's raison d'etre. The police however have given permission until 8th August only, for the team to assemble at Jantar Mantar.
