'Young people are the real heroes of India,' says Anna Hazare

August 20, 2011 - New Delhi

Veteran social activist Anna Hazare today said that the young people are the real heroes of the country.

Hazare is currently on an indefinite hunger strike in New Delhi to press his demand for an effective Lokpal Bill.

"If you see I have nothing, but the whole nation is with me. I am very happy that the young people are with me. The young people are the real heroes of our country," Hazare said while addressing mediapersons.

"If the young people take action, then the future is secure. What I see today, people from all walks of life are coming forward to support me," he added.

Hazare further said that he would continue his hunger strike until the government passed a tougher anti-graft legislation.

"My primary goal is to fight for India and its people. I had decided, at a point of time, that I must give everything to the country," the 74-year-old said.
