New York: Indian-Americans in New York celebrated Parliament's endorsement of social activist Anna Hazare's three key demands on Lokpal Bill, saying it demonstrated the power of the people and of the Indian democracy.
Volunteers of the 'India Against Corruption' organization in New Jersey and Boston held gatherings in support of Hazare, hailing his victory against corruption in the country.
The passage of the resolution on the bill "is a victory of the Indian people and the Indian democracy," IAC volunteer in New Jersey Deepak Gupta said.
He said Indians around the world have been closely following Hazare's 12-day fast and the parliamentary debate on the Lokpal Bill.
After the resolution was passed, Gupta said a handful of Indians carried out a march in New Jersey waiving the tricolour, carrying banners, distributing sweets and singing the national anthem.
