Telugu film industry extends support to Hazare

Actors, producers, directors, writers, artists and workers from various units of the industry joined hands to express their solidarit y with Hazare leading the fight against corruptio n.
The film personali ties took out a peace rally from the office of the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce in Film Nagar to condemn the arrest of Hazare and his supporter s.
They later began their fast to express solidarit y with the activist who launched his fast in New Delhi Tuesday and was sent to the Tihar Jail.
Eminent filmmaker and former union minister Dasari Narayana Rao, actor couple Jeevitha and Rajasekha r, actor Babu Mohan and others were participa ting.
Some participa nts had black ribbons tied across their mouths while others were carrying placards.
"We fully support Anna Hazare and his aides fighting against corruptio n. There is no alternati ve to a comprehen sive Jan Lokpal bill," said actress Jeevitha.
She demanded every politicia n, including the prime minister, must be brought under the purview of the Lokpal.
"We are in a situation where nobody is above board. The public perceptio n is that 80 to 90 percent politicia ns are corrupt and hence there is every need to make all politicia ns accountab le," she said.
Hazare, who has been fasting for a stronger anti-corruption law since three days from inside the jail, Friday left for the Ramlila ground of Delhi to continue his crusade.
