Mumbai: Anna Hazare today performed the traditional burning of demon king Ravana's effigy on the occasion of Dusshera at his village Ralegan Siddhi in western Maharashtra.

"It is good that by setting Ravana's effigy on fire, people will remember that he was an evil person. But there is a Ravana inside everyone," he said.

Earlier, the 74-year-old anti-corruption crusader led the villagers in a procession from the Padmavati temple in the village in Ahmednagar district.

He is scheduled to begin a visit of some states as part of his campaign against corruption and demand to get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed in Parliament.
