With a renewed surge of support for the Team Anna protest over the weekend, Anna Hazare who joined a fast unto death swore that he did not mind dying for the cause of the country.
My team had told me not to fast citing health reasons. When over 400 people are on fast, I cannot ignore them and not be on fast. Yesterday also my team appealed to me not to fast but I am sitting on fast from now. I consider I have your permission, said Anna to a crowd of around 6000 people who gathered at Jantar Mantar on Sunday.
The government is alleging that we are deviating from our aim but it is the government which is moving away from its path. Our main demand is to get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed. Till all the 15 corrupt ministers are sitting in Parliament, the Lokpal Bill will not be passed, he said.
I am ready to sacrifice my life for the cause, Hazare added.
