New Delhi: The Anna Hazare team on Wednesday night said
the Gandhian will continue with his indefinite fast which he
launched while in detention and insist that he will sit on
protest at Jai Prakash Narain Park where prohibitory orders
have been imposed.

"Let there be no doubt that Hazare will continue with his
fast. He will insist on the same place (Jai Prakash Narain
Park)," activist Kiran Bedi said.

However, she said, they were ready to climb down from the
demand if Delhi Police allows them to fast at Ramlila Ground.

"If Delhi Police can give us Ramlila Ground for which we
already have the permission, Hazare will not insist on JP
Park," Bedi said.

Hazare was arrested this morning for insisting that he
will defy the prohibitory orders at JP Park and go ahead with
his fast.
