Country stands up against corruption today

NEW DELHI: As the nation marks the 63 rd death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on Sunday, thousands of Indians will participate in a 'march against corruption' and thereby demand effective anti-corruption laws. The protest march will start at 1pm from Ramlila Maidan and conclude at Jantar Mantar.

The rally will be led by eminent people from all walks of life such as Kiran Bedi, RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal, Sri Sri Ravi Shanker, Swami Agnivesh, Maulana Mahmood Madani, and Archbishop of Delhi Rev Vincent M Concessao. The legal fraternity led by advocate Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan and Fali S Nariman will also join in. Together they will seek the enactment of a law to set up an anti-corruption body at the centre - the Lokpal - and a similar one in the states - Lokayukta.  Read more
