Team Anna refuses to call off Fast
TNI Bureau: Even though the conditions of Arvind Kejriwal and Gopal Rai are said to be alarming, Team Anna refused to call off their fast saying the government should accept their demands in the fight against corruption.
The Delhi Police had earlier warned Team Anna to end the fast, citing health concerns for Kejriwal, Gopal Rai and others. Arvind Kejriwal had refused to take liquid diet, but he is taking medicines and water regularly.
Arvind Kejriwal, Gopal Rai and Manish Sisodia have been on an indefinite fast since July 25. Anna Hazare joined their fast on July 29.
Thousands of Anna’s supporters kept vigil throughout the night yesterday at Jantar Mantar amidst reports that the government may forcibly end the fast. Security has been beefed up at the fast venue with the deployment of more policemen.
