Anna turns blogger, joins netizens

The blog, with posts in English, Hindi and Marathi, is titled “Anna Hazare Says” and can be accessed on:

In his inaugural post, Hazare wrote: “It is after a long time that I am directly communicating with you. Henceforth, it is from this blog that I will be constantly in touch with you. We started a movement demanding that Jan lokpal Bill be passed in India and slowly the crusade spearheaded into a full-fledged non-violent revolution spilling on to the Ramlila grounds,” he said.

He found the support of the people and his young friends as overwhelming as they came forward from every corner of the country and their cries awakened India from its deep slumber. “Their cries not only shook the very roots of our country but people from world over who had fallen prey to injustice, corruption took active part in the movement.  “The entire movement was infectious. This was the beginning of a revolution. It was the beginning of India’s second struggle for independence,” Hazare said.

The 74-year-old leader pointed out that Parliament gave an assurance that it would put forward some of the demands from the Jan Lokpal Bill and get them approved.
