Ralegan Siddhi: As Bombay High Court
rejected a petition seeking concessional rate for hiring MMRDA
ground to hold his fast, Anna Hazare today said he will seek
donations from public to book the protest venue.

"Azad Maidan will not be sufficient. More than one lakh
people can take part in MMRDA ground. We will ask people to
give donations for booking MMRDA," Hazare said.

His response came as Bombay High Court rejected Team
Anna`s petition for direction to Maharashtra government for
allotting MMRDA ground for free or at concessional rates for
Hazare`s fast, saying it cannot come to the conclusion if
the agitation was in public interest or politically motivated.
