Hazare calls off fast over RTI Act


Alandi, August 19
Noted social activist Anna Hazare today called off his 11-day-old fast unto death here following an assurance from the Centre that it has dropped plans to amend the Right to Information Act.

He, however, warned he would again go on an indefinite fast if the government went back on its assurance.

Hazare, 68, who began his fast on August 9 at this pilgrimage town, 30 km from Pune, accepted a glass of juice from a ‘warkari’, an old woman devotee of Sant Gynaeshwaraj.

“I have decided to end my fast following the request of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Minister of State in the PMO Prithiviraj Chavan, on behalf of the Prime Minister, has told me that the government would not be bringing the Right to Information (Amendment) Bill of 2006 in the current session of Parliament. This is not my victory but the victory of the people of the country,” Hazare said. — PTI
