Doctor advises Anna to break `maun vrat`

Social activist Anna Hazare has been advised to give up his maun vrat (the vow of silence) by his doctor.

Pune: Social activist Anna Hazare has been
advised to give up his maun vrat (the vow of silence) by his
doctor.

Dr K H Sancheti, a noted physician from the city, who
examined Hazare at his native village Ralegan Siddhi
yesterday, said the activist`s blood pressure was on a higher
side, which could be due to mental stress.

"Even if he is practising `maun`, his thought process
continues, leading to mental tension. I feel he should end his
silence," Sancheti said.

Sancheti said he also suggested certain exercises and one
week rest to Hazare, to relieve the back pain.

The anti-graft crusader has been observing maun vrat for
more than a week. It coincided with eruption of controversies
involving key members of "Team Anna" -- Arvind Kejariwal,
Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi.

Hazare, however, expressed solidarity with the core
committee of his movement, in a written statement released at
Ralegan today.
