Lokpal Bill row: Govt offers Anna Hazare Ramlila Maidan, duration of protest being negotiated

New Delhi:
Twenty-four hours after he was brought there, Anna Hazare is still in Tihar Jail. Hectic negotiations have been on for several hours now between Team Anna and the government in a bid to find a compromise solution to the Anna-in-jail crisis.

The talks are centred around how many days the anti-corruption crusader will be allowed to fast for at a public venue – the Gandhian activist has steadfastly refused to agree to a stipulation. Sources say the police have offered to let him fast for 15 days and have said they will assess the law and order situation on a day-to-day-basis. Team Anna says they have been offered five days and that is not acceptable to Mr Hazare and that he will stay in Tihar till the government accepts his demand. Sources say Anna’s aides are trying to get the police to agree to a month-long fast.
