Anna Hazare Starts Hunger Strike Over Delay In Lokpal Appointment

Ralegaon Siddhi: Social activist Anna Hazare started a hunger strike on Wednesday over the centre’s delay on the appointment of Lokpal and the passing of the Lokayukta Act in the country.

Hazare started the hunger strike at his village Ralegaon Siddhi in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, after paying respects at the Padmavati Temple. After this, he started a procession, accompanied by students, youths and farmers, to the Yadavbaba Temple and sat near it to begin his hunger strike.

Apart from the appointment of Lokpal at the national level and Lokayukta in states, Hazare has been demanding implementation of the Swaminathan Commission recommendations and some electoral reforms.

“It has been five years since the Lokpal Act was passed. Yet the Narendra Modi government has not appointed Lokpal…Lokayukta Act has not been passed in Maharashtra for four years,” Hazare observed in his letter dated January 28.
