New Delhi: Family members of the whistleblowers who have suffered the aftermath of raising their voice against corruption will get a unique opportunity to share the dais with anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare.

Fighting all odds, Sugna Ragarao along with her two children and brother-in-law arrived in the capital on Saturday from Sitarampuram village in Andhra Pradesh to take part in the Anna Hazare movement.

Sugna earns about Rs 60 per day as a daily wage labourer and barely manages to make ends meet and run the family. Her disabled husband Sola Rangrao used to contribute in the family income before he was killed on April 5, 2010 for raising voice against corruption in road construction in the village.

Since then, Sugna has been waging a war to seek justice for her slain husband. She is hopeful that when she would share the dais with Anna and tell the masses about her ordeal, a solution will surely come out. She went to meet Anna in Noida on Saturday evening ahead of his token fast on Sunday.

Like Sugna, there are many more victims who lost their near and dear ones due to corruption. Amit Jethla who rallied against illegal mining at Gir in Gujarat lost his friend Bhagwan Das in the process.

Lalit Kumar Mahto of Daltonganj in Jharkhand lost his life for exposing irregularities in the MNREGA and his wife Ashrita Mehto is among the dozen victims arriving from different states of the country who will share their sorrow with the masses and Anna Hazare.

This implies that those who paid the price of fighting against corruption are struggling for justice. Therefore they are lending their support to the Jan Lokpal movement so that the culprits think twice before acquiring courage to engage in corruption.
