Anna Hazare calls off fast




Alandi (Maharashtra): Social activist Anna Hazare on Saturday called off his 11-day hunger strike, following the Centre’s decision not to bring in amendments to the Right to Information Act, for now.

Prithviraj Chavan, Union Minister of State in the PMO, offered him a glass of juice.

Mr. Hazare, 68, began his fast on August 9 here in protest against the proposed amendments that would have diluted the law.

A large number of people visited him. He lost 4 kg and his blood pressure was fluctuating, his aides said. — PTI
