Day 2 of Anna fast today, Ralegan folks reaching MMRDA

Mumbai: Concern over Anna Hazare`s health weighing on their minds, villagers of Ralegan Siddhi are reaching here today, the second day of his fast for a strong Lokpal Bill.

"About seven to eight vehicles, carrying people of Ralegan, including the village sarpanch, are reaching Mumbai," Hazare`s associate Datta Awari told PTI over phone from the Gandhian`s native village.

The village observed a bandh on Tuesday as students went on a token day-long fast and a candle-light march was taken out. They remained glued to TV to watch the proceedings at MMRDA ground on day one of the latest anti-corruption agitation launched by Hazare, he said.

Hazare has decided to continue with his fast rejecting appeals by his close aides Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi to call it off.
