Rally for Anna in Aizawl

Aizawl: A rally was organised here under the aegis of 'Mizoram Against Corruption' on Thursday in support of Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement.

Participants of the rally carrying placards and shouting slogans thronged the area near Vanapa Hall though the organisers could not obtain permission from the district administration.

Speakers at the rally said India needed a strong Lokpal to change the corrupt political system and corruption could be rooted out only by changing the political system by enacting a law for establishment of an independent investigating body.

The participants of the rally hoped that Anna's anti-corruption movement would help in legislation of the Lokpal bill, kept pending in Parliament for 42 years.
