New Delhi, Aug 28(ANI): Veteran social activist Anna Hazare today thanked the people of the country and the media for extending their support to his campaign against corruption.
Addressing thousands of supporters after breaking his 12-day fast at New Delhi's Ram Lila Ground, Hazare said he wants the passing of the Jan Lokpal Bill for a corruption-free society.
"Thanks to all of you. This is your victory. This also the victory of media, thanks to media for awakening people across India. Thanks to the members of civil society. We have shown a new way to the world that anything can be achieved through 'ahimsa'," Hazare said.
"I'm thankful to the youth power for their massive support. This has established that 'Jan Sansad' is more powerful than 'Sansad'. Now, our belief is firm that we can build a corruption-free society. Whatever changes we want, would be done in accordance with the Constitution," he added.
The 74-year-old social activist further said that he has 'not broken the fast, but only suspended for time being, and will not break till our goal is achieved."
"We have to think for our future generations. This movement is a ray of hope. Keep this torch alight till the required change is achieved," Hazare said.
"Hope that Parliament will not ignore the sense of the people. Many of you are wearing a cap which says I am Anna. If you want to be Anna then there should not be any difference in your words and action," he added. (ANI)
