Lok Satta Party activists extended their support to Anna Hazare’s fight against corruption by organizing a novel demonstration near Vivekananda statue on Tank Bund in Hyderabad on Wednesday (August 17) evening.

Shackling their arms, the party workers formed themselves into a human chain and shouted slogans against the Union Government’s vindictive attitude towards Anna Hazare and team. The Government opted to malign and jail the fighters against corruption, instead of jailing the corrupt.

Addressing a gathering, party leaders V. Laxman Balaji, V. Vijayender Reddy, S. Manorama, K. Gita Murthy, and Y. Ramadevi pointed out that people are indignant as the Union Government is not serious and sincere about rooting out corruption. They said that the Lok Satta would like the Lokpal Bill to create institutional mechanisms to fight corruption at State and district levels too. They recalled that the Lok Satta organization and the party have been fighting for cleansing the political system and rid it of corruption for a number of years.
