Six crore members required to build a corruption-free India
Social activist Anna Hazare was in fix on the first day of his visit to Odisha when the activists of India Against Corruption resorted to pushing - even coming to blows among themselves to receive Anna Hazare last Thursday.

HOWEVER THE, embarassed Hazare lost his temper and said, “I have never seen such indiscipline any where and should not have come here.” What massege are you going to take to the masses when you yourself do not maintain discipline, he added. 

“These are not the kind of people who will change the system," said Anna. However, he cooled down and appealed to the public for the support for the Aam Admi party and founder Arvind Kejriwal.” Suitable candidates put up by the party in the elections will be backed after scrutinizing the candidates nominated by his party. Anna Hazare confirmed the relationship between him and Kejriwal - stating that they have chosen different paths to fight for the same goal and vision. 

Anna Hazare who is on three-day visit to the state, said, “Our (Arvind and mine) roads are different, but aims and ambitions same to form a corruption-free society.” Taking a dig at the commercialization of education Hazare said, “affluent students are getting admission in good colleges by paying high donations where talented but poor students are unable to avail such benefits owing to financial difficulties.” 

Calling for a second freedom movement Hazare said, “We have not attained true freedom as there is a large scale corruption in society. Earlier, we were ruled by the British and now by our own countrymen's sufferings have not ended." 

Anna Hazare on Friday protested against foreign companies' industrial investment in India including Korean Steel Major POSOCO, which has proposed to setup an 8 Mtpa green field steel plant near Paradeep with an investment of Rs. 52,000 Crores. 

Addressing a “farmers” meet in Jagatshingput today, the social activist criticized the central government for allowing these companies to enter into India, and said that foreign companies like POSCO can't bring development in villages. Can the government acquire farmers' land in the name of industrialization without the consent of farmers those who are the real owners of the land. It will take two years to form a national-level organization of 6 crore members required to help the government to build a corruption free India.
