Social activist Anna Hazare tonight addressed the people of his village from Tihar jail in Delhi over phone and assured that he was in good health.
"My health is fine....I am not a prisoner here," Hazare said. Villagers who were on a protest to support Hazare, heard the 73 years old Gandhian speaking in Marathi in rapt attention.
"I get to know daily about the agitation happening in Ralegan Siddhi, I see photos of people...women who are participating in the protest," he said.
Lauding the role of the youth in the anti-corruption agitation, Hazare said revolutions all over the world were spearheaded by the youth. "In our revolution there is no damage to public property, nor have people been inconvenienced," he said.
Hazare expressed confidence about success of the agitation, saying "I am confident that the country will again see the days of glory".
