Anna’s village gets a Lokpal, he’s four months old
Anna’s aide Dada Pathare has named his four-month-old son after the much debated bill. And no prizes for guessing who suggested the name! None other than the 74-year-old social activist.
But Lokpal’s mother Baby Pathare had her reservations. “When I was told that the baby’s name will be Lokpal, I found it odd. But my husband said that Annaji had given the name,” she said to NDTV.
So while India waits to see if the Lokpal Act evers see the light of the day, Ralegan Siddhi will have their own Lokpal growing up. And there is no voting on this one!
