The famous social reformer Anna Hazare is known for his work in the transformation of the village of Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra state. Kisan Baburao Hazare known as Anna Hazare (born 15 June 1937) is an Indian social activist. He is known for developing a village called Ralegaon Siddhi in India.
Ralegan Siddhi, a village in the Parner taluka of Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra, India, was likewise developed and structured by Hazare. In 1992, the Government of India gave him the Padma Bhushan, India’s third-highest civilian honour, for his work in developing this hamlet as a model for others.
The movement gathered traction after anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare began a hunger strike at New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar monument on April 5, 2011. The Jan Lokpal Bill was introduced as part of the campaign to combat corruption in the Indian government.
