Kabir Bedi, Pooja Bedi, Kailash Kher lend support to Anna

New Delhi: Celebrities and artists continued to lend support to Anna Hazare`s anti-graft campaign with the father-daughter duo of Kabir and Pooja Bedi along with singer Kailash Kher being the latest to turn up at Delhi`s Ramlila Maidan.

The crowds went wild when Kher, popular for his renditions `Allah Ke Banday` and `Teri Deewani` took the state as well as the microphone.

They clapped and cheered as Kher performed a song that he said was composed when Hazare had first undertaken a fast in April to demand that the government take the civil society`s views on drafting of the Lokpal Bill.

Kabir Bedi said the corruption has spread in the country like a cancer and the government should work on a strong bill against it.

"The government has listened to the civil society on making legislations like the RTI, NREGA and others. Why are they not listening now? Why have they sent such a weak bill to parliament" he said.

Actress Pooja Bedi said a strong Lokpal bill was the answer to corruption but the country has sadly been waiting for a Lokpal for 40 years.

"Do we have to wait for another 40 years"? she said.

"From birth to death, corruption is everywhere. Why should one pay bribe to get a death certificate"? she added.

Earlier, Bhojpuri superstar Manoj Tiwari too shared the dais with Hazare and entertained the audience with his songs.
