Anna Hazare ends fast after 288 Hours

Anna Hazare broke his fast after 288 hours on the 13th day at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi as huge crowds witnessed and celebrated the victory of people's power. Anna ended his fast after Parliament adopted the Sense of the House resolution on his three key points on Saturday. Two five-year old girls from Delhi offered coconut water and honey to Anna Hazare. He is now heading to Medanta Medicity in Haryana's Gurgaon soon after he breaks his fast. Doctors are concerned about his health as his fast enters the 13th day today with his internal organs getting affected. Hazare had lost at least 7.5 kg since August 16 when he sat on a hunger strike for a strong Lokpal Bill. He now weighs 64.5 kg.
Outlining his future agenda, Hazare chose reforms in election and education systems and working for the betterment of farmers and labourers. He said his fight would now be for Right to Recall and Right to Reject. While Right to Recall would be for those elected, the Right to Reject will be a column in the ballot paper which would ensure the voter has a right to say that he does not like the listed candidates. "We have to reform electoral system. (we need) Right to Reject. You should be able to reject your candidate in the ballot paper. We have to do that. "If majority say they do not like any of the candidates in the fray, the election should be cancelled. How much money they (candidates) will distribute? Once the candidate spends Rs 10 crore for one election and if the election is cancelled, then right sense will dawn upon them," he said.
