India Against Corruption [IAC] representative Jaheer Hussain said, the government has not taken any solid steps towards our demands. The fast would be organized at Punniyakodi Kalyana Mahal in Kodambakkam on July 25 from 10 am.

On Tuesday, Anna Hazare reached to the Delhi.
Anna Hazare told to media that
"I will fast this time. We had earlier decided that I will not sit on a fast. But seeing the enthusiasm of people, I felt I should also sit on the fast,"
Anna also said that he will start or organize a jail bharo campaign if his demands are not met in three to four days.

What are the demands of Anna Hazare and Honest Indians?
Special Investigation Team to probe corruption allegations against Union Ministers

fast track court to try cases against MPs

strong Lokpal Bill

Anna Hazare in his recorded message said that
"Let us see what the government does during the fast.
If the government does not take any decision (on the demands raised by us) in the first three-four days of the agitation, I will tell people across the country to go on jail bharo agitation.

"Not a single prison in the country should remain vacant," he said, adding going to jail for the sake of the country is an "embellishment for your life".

He said people should consider this protest as a second freedom struggle as the the government was "not doing anything" to bring a strong Lokpal Bill or taking action against corruption.

"Why they are not bringing Lokpal bill. Because 15 of the 35 ministers face corruption allegations. Probe them. Punish them if they are guilty. But the government is not willing to do so. We are left with only one way (to protest)," 

Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai will fast on the first four days.

Anna will start fast from July 29.
