Mumbai: Concern over Anna Hazare`s health
weighing on their minds, villagers of Ralegan Siddhi are
reaching Mumbai on the second day of his fast for a strong
Lokpal Bill.

"About seven to eight vehicles, carrying people of
Ralegan, including the village sarpanch, are reaching Mumbai,"
Hazare`s associate Datta Awari told PTI over phone from the
Gandhian`s native village.

The village observed a bandh yesterday as students
went on a token day-long fast and a candle-light march was
taken out.

They remained glued to TV to watch the proceedings at
MMRDA ground on day one of the latest anti-corruption
agitation launched by Hazare, he said.
Hazare has decided to continue with his fast rejecting
appeals by his close aides Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi to
call it off.
