Anna Hazare not to campaign in Assembly polls


Kiran Bedi
Pune, Jan 5: Anna Hazare will not campaign in the upcoming Assembly elections, including in Uttar Pradesh, as announced earlier owing to his poor health, his close aide Kiran Bedi said today (Jan 5).

"Anna is not going to campaign in the states. Anna is not going to travel which we have urged him not to. Doctors are not allowing any more fast, any more exposure through travel at the moment," she told reporters here.

She said Hazare's health is "really important" for them and he could not be exposed to sudden changes in temperature. Calling off his fast and other agitations for a strong Lokpal last month ahead of schedule, Hazare had announced that he will tour five states going for polls and campaign against Congress for failing to bring a strong Lokpal.
