anna1New Delhi, Thursday, December 12 – Kumar Vishwas, the Aam Aadmi Party leader, reached Ralegan Siddhi to meet Anna Hazare, whose indefinite fast entered the day 3 on Thursday. The social activist Anna has been fasting for the instant passage of Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament.

The 43 year old Vishwas addressed massive gathering in Ralegan Siddhi and said Anna is an enduring source of inspiration for AAP, the political party that stood at the second place with 28 seats in Delhi Legislative Assembly elections. He even dismissed the allegations about rift between Anna and Arvind Kejriwal.

Stating further, Vishwas said that Kejriwal was supposed to come at Ralegan today but he couldn’t make it due to ill health. Lal Krishna Advani, one of the eminent leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lately praised the rise of Aam Aadmi Party.

Anna continued to fast even today and refused to accept the request of the government to break it soon. Government today said that Jan lokpal bill will be introduced in the current session of Parliament. As per latest available information, he shot off a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi, wherein he mentioned that government betrayed his faith.

76 year old Anna said of continuing his fast until Lokpal bill not is passed. ‘Attitude of the government towards the bill is extremely irresponsible. It has disappointed me and the nation’ – Anna stated further and called the bill as an effective instrument to restrain corruption. Kiran Bedi, former IPS officer, will join Hazare in his ongoing indefinite hunger strike on Saturday.
