Ranchi: CPI(ML-Liberation) General
Secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya, and his partymen Friday sat
on a day`s fast in support of social activist Anna Hazare,
whose fast-unto-death entered the fourth day.



"About 100 of our partymen are sitting on fast to show
support to Anna Hazare`s demand for the Lokpal Bill, which the
government should immediately accept," Bhattacharya told
newsmen at the Albert Ekka Chowk here.

Claiming that privatisation has led to increase in
corruption, he said, unless the government changed its
policies on privatisation, the corporate sector would continue
to get protection from them. "So we have to change policies to
rein in corruption."

He said partymen were also on a token-fast in major
towns and cities.
