In Support of Chikka Bapu (Anna Hazare) for Jan Lokpal bill at Freedom Park, Bangalore

In Support of Chikka Bapu (Anna Hazare) for Jan Lokpal bill thousands turned up at Freedom Park, Bangalore on 8-Apr evening. All TV channels lined up to cover the hunger strike that is going on for past 4 days.

People came up with different placards, banners, posters to show how much they hate corruption. All must have been the sufferers of corruption in their lives.

I heard a story from the public at Freedom Park … one of the members factory was gutted in a fire when he is taking part in hunger strike at Freedom Park. Fire officials asked 20k for coffee and tiffen itseems from the member for registering an FIR. What a shame on these officials?
