The 72-year old Kisan Baburao Hazare, famously known as Anna Hazare, into the third day of his fast unto death for a stronger anti-corruption law, has become the most visible face of the movement that is garnering growing support.

Several demonstrations took place around the country against corruption and in support of the "Jan Lokpal Bill".
