|Anna Hazare’s visit welcomed|
GUWAHATI, May 7 – Citizens First, a Guwahati-based forum of common people, has welcomed the ensuing visit of Gandhian Anna Hazare to Assam on May 20.
The office-bearers of the forum have hoped that Hazare’s visit to the State will strengthen the people’s movement against corruption and different types of irregularities in the government institutions.
“Today corruption and irregularities have damaged the government institutions. The honest people find it difficult to lead a peaceful and secure life in the society. Without money and muscle power, no one can expect a good livelihood or a place of living. State machineries have also failed to protect the interest of larger section of people. As there is no other alternative left for the common people, we must come out to fight against all sorts of corruption and irregularities,” the statement from the forum mentioned.
