Mumbai: Expressing happiness that Anna
Hazare called of his fast, Maharashtra Chief Minister
Prithviraj Chavan on Wednesday said the anti-graft crusader`s
advisors seemed to have a political agenda.
"I believed that after the Hissar by-election, Anna`s
advisors had a score to settle with the Congress. That is now
coming out in open," he told a TV channel.

"It was ridiculous to say that we tried to stop Anna`s
movement," Chavan said.

The Congress leader said he had called the 73-year-old
activist yesterday to express concern over his health.

“I said that the agitation had succeeded in awakening the
people. I`m happy that Anna has seen light of the day and
called off his fast," he said.
Referring to Hazare`s earlier agitations in Maharashtra,
Chavan said in the past he always took one step forward and
one step backwards but this time he adopted an extremist
position.

Meanwhile, Nashik-based cardiologist Aniruddh
Dharmadhikari told PTI that the anti-graft crusader, who is
staying at a state guest house at suburban Bandra overnight,
may leave for Nashik or Ralegan Siddhi tomorrow.

"We will take a decision tomorrow but the option of going
to Nashik is under consideration," said Dharmadhikari, who is
close to Hazare.
