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.
