As social activist Anna Hazare's fast in New Delhi entered the 10th day, members of members of the Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan (BVJA), an organisation founded by Hazare himself, have organised a unique car and bike rally this weekend.

The rally will start from Azad Maidan in city and end at Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare's native village. The village is known to be a model village for environmental conservation and has seen a huge transformation over the years, thanks to Hazare's efforts.

"We want people to Anna's village," said John Gholap, event coordinator, BVJA. So far 65 people have confirmed their participation in this rally, which will start at 9.30am on Saturday and would pass from Dadar, Sion, Vashi, Panvel, Khandala, Alephata, Parner and then reach Ralegan Siddhi. The participants would stay for a night and leave the next morning for the city.

"If the protests end by Saturday, we will call it a victory rally," added Gholap.
