New Delhi, Aug 21: When Anna Hazare's fast for strong Jan Lokpal Bill entered the sixth day on Sunday, Aug 21, it seems that Team Anna started fearing for the 74-year-old Gandhian crusader's health. After rejecting the government's proposal for a "discussion on anti-corruption bill" on Saturday, the team changed their opinion and invited the government for a talk.

However, defying their stand on the Lokpal issue, one of the crucial members of Anna Hazare's team, Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday claimed that they (Team Anna) will not step back from their decision unless untill the government passes the bill within Aug 30.

Kejriwal, informing people at the Ramlila Maidan and the rest of the nation, stated that they (Team Anna) called the government and NGOs in an open debate to bring an end to the deadlock over the Jan Lokapl Bill.

"No one has approached us from the government side," Kejriwal said while recollecting the statement from the Prime Minister as Manmohan Singh on Saturday had claimed that the government was ready to discuss with Team Anna to break the fuss.

Team Anna, however, had rejected his (PM's) proposal claiming, "...time for discussion is over, now this is the time for action."
