The youth of India may wonder why they are being encouraged to support Anna Hazare in his movement against corruption, who Anna Hazare is and why supporting him will bring justice for our great are some answers...

Anna Hazare is an ex-army man who bravely fought his motherland in the 1965 India-Pakistan war. After the war, he continued his crusade for serving our country. He built Ralegaon Siddhi village in Ahamad Nagar district in Maharashtra- a village that's energy is produced from solar power, biofuel and windmills. It was once a poverty clad village but because of Anna Hazare it is now one of the richest villages in our nation. He was also awarded Padma Bhushan for many of his social activities.

An honourable man who lives by Gandhian beliefs, he needs our support now more than ever, for he is a spear-heading a movement that not only affects each and every one of us but our country and our people for generations to come. Anna Hazare is peacefully fighting against the biggest poison affecting our nation- corruption.

He is advocating the Lok Pal Bill, that will form an autonomous authority making politicians (ministers), bureaucrats (IAS/IPS) accountable for their deeds. He is asking that the government comes forward to guarantee that this bill will be passed, a bill that has been delayed since 1972...delaying justice to our nation for over 40years. He also demands that they make a joint committee to DRAFT the LOK PAL BILL. 50% government participation and 50% public participation.

If this bill is passed, a LokPal will be appointed at the centre. He will have an autonomous charge. In each and every state, the appointed Lokayukta will do its job to bring all alleged parties to trial in cases of corruption within 1 year. Within a maximum 2 year time frame, the guilty parties will be punished. Justice will truly be done!

Anna Hazare is on a hunger strike till death for our rights as citizens of India. He is fighting corruption- the biggest evil our country faces, and we as citizens must support him. It takes a man to initiate a movement, it takes a nation to make it a reality! I request the youth of our great nation to stand up and fight for our right to a better india. This is the second freedom struggle of india, this is OUR freedom struggle! For a truly free india, free from corruption and lawlessness....I support anna hazare and urge you all to support him and this great movement...jai hind! Mera bharat mahan!
