New Delhi: Anticipating that the Lokpal Bill
will be tabled in Parliament, Anna Hazare has cancelled his
visit to Hyderabad and will return to Delhi to be in the
House.

A Team Anna source said the septuagenarian activist has
cancelled his Monday’s function in Hyderabad and will return
to the national capital.

The anti-graft crusader, who is currently in Chennai, had
yesterday addressed a huge gathering in Bangalore.

"Anna wants to be in the visitors’ gallery in Parliament
when the Lokpal Bill is introduced there. It is speculated
that government will bring the Lokpal Bill tomorrow," the Team
Anna member said.

The members of Team Anna`s Core Committee will also
accompany him to Parliament House complex on the day
government plans to table the bill.
