Pune: Gandhian and social activist Anna
Hazare, who suffers from osteoarthritis, has been admitted to
a city hospital for treatment and rest, hospital authorities
said on Wednesday.

Hazare, who underwent a routine check up in the hospital
on Monday, was admitted last night and administered an
injection to relieve the pain in his knee, Dr Parag Sancheti,
who is treating the activist, said.

Sancheti said Hazare has been undergoing regular
treatment at the hospital for his knee problem for quite some
time and was expected to be "all right" shortly to carry out
his schedules including the May 2 meeting in New Delhi of the
Lokpal drafting committee.

"He has been advised rest because of exertion," he added.

Hazare`s secretary Suresh Pathare, however, maintained
that the anti-corruption crusader had not been admitted to
hospital and was in his native village of Ralegan Siddhi.

The 71-year-old Gandhian had earlier this month observed
a 98-hour fast demanding that the government enact a strong
anti-corruption law.
