Pune: Social activist Anna Hazare was admitted to a hospital in Pune on Monday and is to undergo surgery tomorrow, as per reports.
However, Anna`s assistant has reportedly said that there was nothing to worry about.
Anna captured the imagination of the nation when he took on the establishment in 2011 and demanded that anti-corruption bill be passed by the Parliament. He went on a fast and agreed to break it only when the Parliament unanimously passed the sense of the House on the Lokpal Bill.
However, the bill is yet to see the light of the day. Meanwhile, Anna has threatened that he will again go on an agitation to press for the Lokpal Bill.
On the other hand, Anna`s close aide Arvind Kejriwal parted ways with the activist and jumped into the political arena. He formed a political party called the Aam Aadmi Party, which is contesting the Delhi state Assembly elections this year.
