Anna Hazare Fasts in Mumbai for Better Lokpal

Anna Hazare Tuesday started a three-day fast for a strong Lokpal, while Prime Minister Manmohan Singh defended the government’s proposed ombudsman following an opposition onslaught.
As MPs furiously debated the pros and cons of the Lokpal bill in the Lok Sabha, Team Anna urged Parliament to dump the proposed legislation, saying it was too weak to combat the cancer of corruption.
Intervening, the prime minister insisted that the bill lives up to the promise MPs “collectively made to the people of the country” with a ‘sense of house’ resolution in August when Hazare fasted in Delhi.
