5th Pillar motivates students & public of Coimbatore to form Human chain and sit on fast to urge the Government to implement the Lokpal Bill



Today, 5th day of 5th Pillar’s indefinite fast in support of Anna Hazare’s fasting began with large number of students joining us and extending their support. Later the students and public formed a human chain supporting our indefinite fast nearby our venue at Presidents Hall, Avinashi Road, Coimbatore. As the time went nearly 5000 students from 36 different colleges got united and the human chain extended to more than 3 kms on either side of the road. 








After the human chain, members of 5th Pillar and people from other organizations motivated the students with their valuable speech for eliminating corruption. Many students voluntarily shared their views about Janlokpal bill and their support for anti-corruption. Zero Rupee Notes were distributed to all participants and they pledged against corruption and signed the zero rupee note banner. 







They also signed the 'Petition to PM' to request for implementing Anna Hazare’s Janlokpal bill. After that about 500 students sat with us for one day fast. Later 3 students Mr.Manikandan, Mr.Lingesh & Mr.Prasath decided to sit for indefinite fast with us. The day ended with inspiring the young minds on a "unified India free of corruption".
