Man fasts atop coconut tree to support Hazare
The tree-top campaign was launched by Rajendran of Veloor near Kottayam.

Kottayam: Expressing support to Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement in a unique way, a 60-year-old man has launched a 'relay' atop a coconut tree.

The tree-top campaign, launched by Rajendran of Veloor near Kottayam, elicited instant response from fellow-villagers, who joined him by sitting near the tree.

Rajendran is sitting on a platform set up like a tree-top cottage on a 24-feet tall coconut tree in the village. He climbs the tree at 8 am and descends by the evening.

"I will continue my protest till Annaji ends his fast or the government accepts the demand for a strong Lokpal law to root out corruption which is spreading like cancer," Rajendran said.

Rajendran recently floated an organisation called 'Navabharath Swatnatra Ghosham' as a platform for his social activism.
