Jan Lokpal Bill: Call for Action

Drafted by Justice Santosh Hegde, Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal, Jan Lokpal Bill has been refined on the basis of feedback received from public on website and after series of public consultations. It has also been vetted by and is supported by Shanti Bhushan, J M Lyngdoh, Kiran Bedi, Anna Hazare etc. It was sent to the PM and all CMs on 1st December, last year. However, there is no response.

Anna Hazare has announced fast until death from April 5, 2011 at Jantar Mantar - New Delhi

Anna Hazare’s appeal to the people:

When I sit on fast (unto death) from 5 April, I urge my fellow countrymen to:

*  Join me in fasting for one, two, three or whatever number of days you can comfortably fast.
* Along with fast, please pray to God (whoever you believe in) for better and corruption free India.
* Write an impassioned plea to our Prime Minister that we look upon him to pass “Jan Lokpal Bill”,else we  will be compelled not to vote for his party in next elections.
* Remain calm and peaceful and develop the courage to go to jail, if required, in this next freedom movement.
