TNI Bureau: Anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare is back with a bang. Anna held the Jantantra Rally in Patna today and announced the formation of ‘Jantantra Morcha’ to mark the 65th death anniversary of Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Around 10,000 people attended Anna’s rally today.
Surprisingly, the national media did not give the rally any good coverage, may be due to to some “compulsions”. With Manish Tewari as the I&B Minister at the Centre, it is definitely completely understood.
Bihar CM Nitish Kumar supported Anna Hazare’s cause and praised him for doing a great work to awaken the people. Anna Hazare stayed at legendary socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan’s house in Patna.
