Celebrations after Hazare accord with govt

New Delhi: Celebrations broke out on Friday night at Jantar Mantar, the nerve-centre of the Lokpal Bill protest led by Anna Hazare, after the government brokered an agreement with Hazare-led anti-corruption activists on the issue.

Dancing to the beating drums and singing of patriotic songs, hundreds of people erupted in euphoria as Hazare announced that he will end his fast-unto-death protest tomorrow morning after reaching an agreement.

The venue of Hazare`s hunger strike resonated with `Anna Hazare Zindabad`, `Bharat Mata ki Jai`, `Vande Mataram` and `Inquilab Zindabad` slogans as anti-corruption activists waved tricolours.

"This is a great victory. The government has bowed before the might of the public," said Manish Sharma, a DU student who was at the protest site for the past four days.
