The findings are based on the analysis of quantified data,collected over a 30 year period, from 1980 to 2010.

In Haryana, there is a rise of 0.3 to 0.6 degrees Celsius in maximum temperature with no significant change in the minimum during the same period.

    LONG LIVE ANNA HAZARE & HIS TEAM

    ANNA HAZARE ! A GREAT SOUL OF MODERN INDIA IS STRIVING HARD TO GET THE PEOPLE OF INDIA THEIR RIGHTS IN UPHOLDING THEIR GRIEVENCES AGAINST CORRUPTION BY FOLLOWING THE FOOT-PRINTS OF MAHATMA GANDHI IN A PEACEFUL WAY. I JOIN HIS MOVEMENT FOR ERADICATING THE CORRUPTION AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT OFFICES AND PAVE WAY FOR COMMON PEOPLE TO HAVE PEACEFUL LIFE WITH THEIR LEGITIMATE RIGHT TO LIVE AND WITHOUT ANY FEAR FROM THE RULING OR NON-RULING POLITICAL PARTIES.

    INSTEAD OF CONTINUING FAST, MY HUMBLE SUGGESTION TO ANNA AND HIS TEAM IS TO TAKE A PROPOGANDA TOUR TO ALL OVER PLACES OF INDIA BY FOOT OR BY ANY MEANS OF TRANSPORT TO MEET THE PEOPLE AS GANDHIJI DID DURING ‘QUIT-INDIA MOVEMENT’ AGAINST BRITISH RULE. THIS WOULD FURTHER STRENGTHEN HIS MOVEMENT FOR VOICING AGAINST CORRUPTION AND GOVERNMENT WOULD KNEEL DOWN TO IMPLEMENT THE ‘JAN LOKPAL BILL’ AS EXPECTED BY ALL.
