Indian activist hunger strike reaches 8th day

A 74-year-old Indian activist warned the federal government that surging crowds of his supporters would picket elected lawmakers if his demands for an anti-corruption bill prepared by citizens were not met by August 30. And as Anna Hazare delivered the warning, one of his aides said negotiations could help end the impasse. On the eighth day of his hunger strike at a large ground in New Delhi, campaigner Hazare took a stiffer posture as he told tens of thousands of demonstrators to move out of the public place to the houses of parliamentarians in the event his deadline was spurned, CNN informs.
