April 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Bollywood star Anupam Kher, who is supporting Anna Hazare's fast on Lokpal Bill, has appealed to master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan to support the movement against corruption.

Addressing the gathering of protesters in Delhi, Anupam Kher said that the three icons have a huge fan following in the country and their support will help Hazare's fight against corruption.

Heaping praise on Anna Hazare, Anupam Kher said that after Mahatma Gandhi he was the only person in the country who could say with pride 'my life is my message'.

Anupam Kher reacted strongly to government's rejection of two key demands put up by protesters and expressed surprise as to how the government could turn a blind eye to a movement that was gaining in strength with every passing day.

He compared the government with the villain in Bollywood movies, who, high on power, refused to see the reality on ground.

He said the politicians were behaving like ostriches trying to bury their heads into the sand. But such is the force of this movement that these politicians will be forced to face the reality.

The Bollywood veteran also had a word of caution for the media. Referring to reports of division in the ranks of protesters, Anupam Kher said that journalists should report about the movement with responsibility.

Gandhian Anna Hazare today announced a 'jail bharo' movement across the country on April 13 after the government rejected his demands of chairmanship of the joint drafting committee being given to a civil society member and for a formal notification.

Giving the call, Hazare asked people to stick to non-violence during the agitation. After first announcing April 12 as the date for the agitation, he later changed it April 13 citing holiday on the earlier date.

"Today when (minister Kapil) Sibal and these people are saying this, I felt that the jail bharo agitation should take place in the entire country. But you should participate in the agitation keeping in mind Mahatma Gandhi. There should be no violence anywhere," Hazare said.

He recalled that he had organised similar jail bharo movements in Maharashtra in the past.

Anna Hazare's fast-unto-death entered the fourth day today even as anti-corruption activists waited for a communication from

the government over holding another round of talks to iron out differences over notifying formation of a joint committee to

draft an effective Lokpal Bill.

Social activist Swami Agnivesh told PTI, "We are waiting for a communication from the government side.

Yesterday, it was informally agreed that we will meet around 9:AM. We have not got any formal communication".

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal had said that two sides would be meeting this morning for the third round of talks.


"The two sides had agreed on almost all issues but there is no agreement on two issues, that is issuing an official

notification to form the committee and making Hazare the chairman of the committee.
