Mumbai: Maharashtra Opposition, Shiv Sena and BJP on Wednesday extended their support to social activist Anna Hazare stir, on the second day of his indefinite fast in the Delhi. The move by activist comes following his demand for implementation of the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"We are supporting Hazare's agitation in the public and country's interest," Sena chief Bal Thackeray said.

However, on a pessimistic note, Thackeray said he was not aware "how many germs of corruption will be killed due to this spraying of pesticide of hunger strike."

Maharashtra BJP President Sudhir Mungantiwar, speaking at a function at state party office in South Mumbai on the occasion of the party's 32nd anniversary, said the party was committed to rid the society of corruption and will extend 'solid support' to Hazare.

Meanwhile, Hazare's agitation continued to receive strong support in his home state, with activists holding relay fast and holding demonstrations to show their support.

In Hazare's Ralegan Siddhi village in Ahmednagar district, his supporters are on relay-fast in solidarity with the soldier-turned-crusader.

In Mumbai, activists of 'India Against Corruption' movement are on a relay fast at Azad Maidan here, to support Hazare.
