With the health condition of Arvind Kejriwal and Gopal Rai deteriorating, Team Anna is now holding an internal round of discussion regarding further courses of action. The fast which has entered Day 4, has not seen any initiative on the government’s part in calling for truce or the implementing of Jan Lokpal Bill, as called for by the team. Hazare on his part has threatened to return the Padma Bhushan bestowed upon him.
“Wait and watch,” said a team spokesperson, following two rounds of talks at Jantar Mantar.
Arvind Kejriwal, along with Manish Sisodia and Rai whose fast enters the 8th day, has warned the government against any plan of removing him from the site by force. Anna Hazare’s fast enters day 4. Kumar Vishwas, Team Anna associate has announced that the health condition of Kejriwal and Rai have taken a worrying turn. “The whole country is concerned about their health,” he said.
The central government is now under scathing attack, with Prashanth Bhushan stating that the entire machinery has no respect for commoners. “Government said they were not ready to talk to us. This is their attitude. They have utmost disrespect for people. They want people like Anna, Arvind, Manish and others to die so that they can continue their loot,” he charged.
