Ralegan villagers observe token fast in support of Anna

Villagers of Ralegan Siddhi, the native village of social activist Anna Hazare, on Sunday observed a day-long hunger strike in support of Hazare, who has begun a fast at Jantar Mantar in the national capital.

"The villagers observed a day-long hunger strike in Anna's support," Hazare's aide Datta Awari told PTI over phone.

The villagers also took out a mashal morcha (torch rally) to support the agitation, he added.

Hazare today joined three of his team members in their indefinite fast after his four-day ultimatum to the government to concede to his demands on Lokpal Bill found no response.
