Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 18: Anna Hazare and his team have been granted permission to fast till Sep 2 at Ramlila Maidan, said RK Singh, Home Secretary on Aug 18 (today).

He further said that talks were going on between Delhi Police and Anna adding further that the government was in no way involved in any word with him.

"The Delhi Police discussed with Team Anna and, thereafter, they have come to a decision. What the Delhi Police conveyed to the Ministry of Home Affairs is that the permission was given till September two on the usual sort of conditions.

"If someone is saying that this is a victory or something, this is not the right way to say. This is not a question of victory or defeat," he said.

"An agreement has been reached on another ground and the size of that ground is much larger. So the size of the crowd does not matter," said the Home Secretary mentioning Ramlila Maidan.

"Conditions are there. Some conditions remain same. For example, the condition of using loud speakers remains the same as the condition imposed for the earlier ground. The condition that the doctors will examine remains the same. Doctors will examine. The organisers and the Delhi Police have agreed to these conditions," he said further.

The Home Secretary further said that Team Anna had to make arrangements on their own.

"The issue has been resolved by the Delhi Police through negotiation and through complete understanding. It was good," he added.
