Hazare changes plans, to head to Ralegan Siddhi not Delhi

December 19, 2011 11:11 IST
Changing his plans to come to Delhi, Anna Hazare will now head to Ralegan Siddhi on Monday and stay there for the next couple of days as there is no clear indication when the Lokpal Bill will be introduced in Parliament.

"Anna Hazare is going to Ralegan Siddhi. He will be there for the next three to four days," Suresh Pathare, Hazare's close aide," said.

Hazare is presently in Chennai where he addressed a gathering on Sunday. He had cancelled his Hyderabad programme for on Monday and wanted to be in Delhi anticipating that the Lokpal Bill will be introduced in Parliament during the day.

The 74-year-old activist wanted to be present in the Visitors' Gallery of Parliament when Lokpal Bill, for which he led a protest for the past eight months, is introduced. He cancelled his Hyderabad plans as there were reports that the Cabinet will clear the bill last night and it will be introduced in Parliament on Monday.
