Pune: Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Monday
said the proposed campaign by Anna Hazare in five poll-bound
states entirely depended on his health.

"It depends entirely on his health and suggestions by
doctors," he told reporters after visiting Hazare.

The 74-year-old activist had earlier announced that he
would tour the five poll-bound states to canvass against
political parties that opposed a strong Lokpal Bill in
Parliament.

He said since Anna`s health was improving with reduced
chest congestion, the date of next meeting of the movement`s
core committee would be finalised soon.
"Anna`s health is paramount for us and the whole country,"
he added.

Dr Parag Sancheti, who accompanied Kejriwal, said Hazare
would be administered intravenous antibiotics for five days.
He has been advised not to undertake any stressful activity or
fast for a month.

"Anna does not require strict bed rest but he should not
undertake any stressful activity," he added.
