New Delhi, July 25 (): Team Anna is set to start an indefinite hunger strike on Wednesday, a day when Pranab Mukherjee will be sworn in as the 13th president of the country. The activist’s camp is likely to sit for the protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Wednesday morning.
Team Anna is protesting against the government’s refusal to launch an inquiry against the Prime Minister and 14 senior cabinet ministers who are said to be accused of corruption.
However though Anna will be joining his team tomorrow to protest against the government, he shall not carry with the hunger strike owing to his health problem. Anna will be joining the indefinite fast on July29.
“The motivation behind the protest is to campaign for a Lokpal Bill, the government is simply convincing by giving assurances, but not ready to take any action against the accused in spite of producing sufficient evidence,” said the anti crusader.
Before heading towards to sit in the protest Anna will be visiting Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial at Rajghat, said team members.
Calling it a do-or-die situation, Kejriwal said, “Pranab Mukherjee is also among the 15 corrupt ministers. The parties that supported Pranab in the presidential polls have been disloyal to the country. It’s is a matter of regret that Pranab will be taking charge of the office on Wednesday which is considered to be the country’s most prestigious post,” Said Kejriwal, “It is our request to the countrymen to join the fast along with us tomorrow” said Kejriwal.
Anna has also threatened to organize a jail bharo campaign if the government fails to meet his demands within three days.” I shall also join the fast this time. Earlier it was discussed that I should not sit for the fast. But after observing the eagerness of my countrymen I have decided to sit on the fast. What maximum loss will it do if I carry on with my fast? I am ready to sacrifice my life for the sake of the country,” said the Seventy-five year old Anna.
