New Delhi: Team Anna`s Core Committee will
meet here for two days from Wednesday to chalk out future
plans, including the proposed Ramlila Maidan agitation, if a
strong Lokpal Bill is not passed in the ongoing Winter Session
Hazare will chair the meeting which is expected to take a
final call on his decision to go on an indefinite fast from
December 27 if a Lokpal law which addresses his concerns is
not passed in Parliament.
Team Anna sources said the Core Committee will also
discuss how to go ahead with their campaign in the five
poll-bound states if the situation warrants. "There will be
preliminary discussions on all these issues," a Team Anna
Sources said the Core Committee will decide on the mode
of Ramlila agitation like whether Hazare should sit on a fast
or not and how to mobilise support for the protest, which will
be held in chilly winter days.
There are also concerns about Hazare`s health and all
these factors will be considered while deciding on the protest
mode, sources said.
Hazare has stepped up attack on the government on the
issue bringing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress
leader Rahul Gandhi in the direct line of fire, saying the
former "does not take any decision" and the latter was
"watering down" proposals.
Congress has been insisting that Hazare should wait till
Parliament passes the bill before going on a protest.
