Congress seeks `guarantee` over Anna`s health

With Anna Hazare planning to continue his fast, Congress on Thursday sought a "guarantee" from his team that his health will be fine.



New Delhi: With Anna Hazare planning to
continue his fast, Congress on Thursday sought a "guarantee" from
his team that his health will be fine.

Party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhury said, "It will be
better if somebody takes an undertaking of his (Hazare`s)
health. They must take responsibility. They should take the
guarantee. They should keep a watch over his health. Arvind
Kejriwal can do it."

Dismissing the contention that the government tied itself
in knots over Hazare episode by first allowing his arrest and
then facilitating his release, Chowdhury said, "Governance is
never static.

"It is a dynamic system," she said, adding that the
decisions change as per situations and perceptions.

Chowdhury vehemently denied that there was any
pressure on the government to release Hazare. She at the same
wondered why Hazare decided to go on a fast when the
government "has already accepted many of his demands over
Lokpal bill".

The Congress spokesperson also steered clear of questions
on whether the decision to arrest Hazare was correct. She,
however, reminded that it took place on August 16 a day after
Independence Day during which there was a high alert and
intense pressure on the police to maintain security.

Asked why the government is allowing Hazare to protest
at Ramlila Ground from where it had earlier evicted yoga guru
Ramdev, Chowdhury said the government was making arrangements
and "godwilling everything will be fine."
