Team Anna
Pune, Jan 2: Crucial Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Monday, Jan 2 rushed to Pune and met 74-year-old Anna Hazare who has been hospitalised on Saturday, Dec 31. After their meeting, Kejriwal announced that all their meetings regarding Lokpal Bill, would be postponed for an indefinite time.

Discussing about Anna's health and the doctor's suggestion, Kejriwal said, "His (Hazare) health is most important to us. The whole country and its people want Anna Hazare to remain healthy. His health is of prime importance and we would take into account every suggestion that is given by the doctors."

Overruling all speculations that Anna may resume another round of fast-protest in near future, Kejriwal said, "We would also need to speak to Anna (Hazare) and then plan forward. Also, there is no fast planned in the near future."

Team Anna had urged the Gandhian not to observe the three-day fast at MMRDA grounds in Mumbai. Anna has been suffering from viral fever and infection since last few weeks. However, the hunger strike was called off on the very second day citing deteriorating health condition of the septuagenarian.

"Anna Hazare needs a medical treatment for five to six days. He will have to be in the hospital for at least five days and we will treat him with antibiotics and other medicines. As soon as the he shows improvement, he will be free to decide where he wants to go," added Kejriwal after his meeting with Anna.
