In what is being viewed as a thumping victory for Indian democracy, the government on Saturday agreed to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill under the purview of the government's draft of the Lokpal Bill by including anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare's demands for which he has been fasting for 12 days at the Ramlila Grounds in New Delhi. The news of the government's decision led to large-scale celebrations through the country.
