New Delhi: Anna Hazare has undergone a medical test in Tihar Jail Thursday morning before he sets out for Ramlila Maidan, where he will launch his protest for a strong Lokpal.

As per the medical bulletin issued after a team of doctors from a government hospital and those from Naresh Trehan`s Vedanta Medicity examined 73-year-old anti-corruption crusader, Anna is fit and his blood pressure is stable at 160/80.

Hazare had refused to come out of jail after being released from detention yesterday demanding that he be allowed to continue with his protest in the capital without any conditions.

After a late night meeting with Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta, the Hazare team said the Gandhian decided to accept the city police`s offer of permitting him to stage his protest for 14 days which could be extended later.
