In 2011, social activist Anna Hazare broke his fast for four days on this day. Anna was on hunger strike on the issue of corruption. His demand was that the government should form a committee to draft the Lokpal Bill. Accepting their demand, the government issued a notification for this on the fifth day of the fast i.e. April 9, after which Anna broke her fast by drinking lemonade at the hands of a small girl.
After ending his fast, he said in his address that if the Lokpal Bill is not passed by August 15, then from the next day, he will start the movement once again. The bill was not passed until 15 August, and on 16 August, Anna sat on a fast. After this, movements started in support of Anna across the country. Ultimately, the government had to bring the bill to the Lok Sabha in a hurry. Anna’s movement ended after the bill was passed in the Lok Sabha.
Many social activists involved in the Anna movement became leaders after this movement. These include Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi and Manish Sisodia.
