Mumbai: Maharashtra Pradesh Congress president Manikrao Thakre today met Anna Hazare at Ralegan Siddhi against the backdrop of the activist's appeal to people not to vote for the party during the Hisar Lok Saba bypoll.

"We have appealed to people in this polls. Congress should be defeated as it has failed to bring Jan Lokpal Bill," Hazare had said.

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi also met Hazare today. The two met for around 20 minutes, after which Vivek mingled with local school children, Anna's associate Datta Awari told PTI over phone from Ralegan Siddhi.

The actor later interacted with people from Haryana, UP and Bihar who have come to the village to witness the work done in watershed development, Awari said.

"Anna is likely to leave the village for his tour in other states either on October 13 or 15," he added.
