Ramon Magsaysay Awardee Dr Sandeep Pandey who is currently teaching a course at IIT Gandhinagar has also signed this petition in support of Gandhian crusader against corruption Anna Hazare.

"This is an appeal (sign the petition here) that seeks to express solidarity with Anna Hazare who has decided to undertake a fast-unto-death — unless the government agrees to enact a powerful law to rid India of the scourge of corruption – by agreeing to skip one meal per day so long as Anna continues with his fast, to strengthen the movement that he and rest of the country have owned up. Sign up now for skipping a meal per day as long as Anna continues to be on fast and encourage others to join. Send this mail to more people" said Dr Pandey.
