Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Friday appealed to the public to support its indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi from July 25 against the UPA government on the issue of corruption.
“I appeal to all of you to gather in large number at Jantar Mantar to support our fight against corruption,” Mr. Kejriwal said at a public meeting by Team Anna to drum up support for the fast.
He said, “The prevailing resentment among public against corruption will become hard to deal with for the government in times to come.”
He alleged that the government is afraid of bringing in a strong Jan Lokpal Bill as 15 of its 34 ministers are facing corruption charges.
Team Anna had announced the indefinite protest against the UPA government and its failure to enact a strong Lokpal as well as not setting up a Special Investigation Team to probe corruption charges against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his 14 Cabinet colleagues.
