Bollywood celeb to pay for Anna Hazare's Mumbai fast


Vishal Dadlani
Mumbai, Dec 21: A day after Team Anna and the Gandhian expressed their unhappiness over the high rentals of the grounds in Bandra, Bollywood music composer-singer Vishal Dadlani has offered to sponsor a day's fast for the septuagenarian.

"I support the issue taken by Anna Hazare and would be part of this movement in every possible way. I would sponsor a day's fast. (which comes up to Rs two lakh)," said Vishal.

The singer had also expressed his support to Anna by singing patriotic songs in Aug during his fast at Azad Maidan this year.

"The whole country is united for eradicating corruption from our system. As a responsible citizen, I will do whatever is there in my capacity for this movement," Vishal said.

Anna Hazare will continue his agitation from Dec 27 demanding for a strong Lokpal Bill. It is, however, not clear if other Team Anna members will fast along with the anti-corruption crusader.

"Arvind Kejriwal has informed us that he will be participating in the fast in Mumbai. This topic has not been discussed with Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi so far and therefore I cannot confirm their participation. This, however, does not mean they will not sit on fast along with others," Suresh Pathare, Hazare's close aide, said.

The statement came after Team Anna was criticised by detractors that the members should have taken up the fast, instead of Anna Hazare.
