The Delhi police will finalise within two days the venue for social activist Anna Hazare’s indefinite fast against the government’s Lokpal Bill.
Team Anna comprising Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan and Manish Sisodia met Police Commissioner B.K. Gupta here on Monday. Mr. Gupta is learnt to have assured them that a decision on the venue would be communicated to them in a couple of days.
The team had suggested four places — Ramlila Grounds, Rajghat, Boat Club and Shaheed Park near the ITO — after the police did not give them permission for indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar pointing out limitations in managing a large gathering.
Team Anna has obtained a no-objection certificate from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi for holding a dharna on the Ramlila Grounds. Hindu
