Kolkata: Joining the all round support that Anna Hazare is receiving for his crusade against corruption, the business community of the state has decided to hold a demonstration here on August 27 to extend solidarity to the Gandhian.

The demonstration would witness participation of traders from across the state at Dharmatalla- the central business district of the state capital.

Chairman of Federation of West Bengal Trade Associations, Mahesh Singhania said, “Corruption in our country is like a cancer which has eaten up the political, social, cultural and economical aspect of our life and now it’s high time to fight it out.”

Singhania added that the business community being one of the worst sufferers of corruption, has decided to stand and get counted in support of Anna’s campaign.

It is noteworthy that the membership of the Association runs over 1 crore.
