Anna Hazare burns Ravana's effigy
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
"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.
