Anna unwell, puts off Karnataka visit

BANGALORE/MYSORE: Your wish to meet Anna Hazare, the man who woke the Indian middle class up to a new revolution against corruption, will have to be put on hold as of now. Due to ill health, the 74-year-old leader has decided to postpone his Karnataka visit.

Anna Hazare was supposed to visit Mysore on May 5 and Bangalore on 6. Swamy Vivekananda Youth Movement founder R Balasubramaniam told STOI in Mysore: Hazares blood pressure is varying and is suffering from knee joint pain. He is likely to be discharged from hospital in a couple of days. But we decided against forcing him to stick to his schedule in Karnataka. His visit to Varanasi and Bhopal this weekend have been put off. He has to attend the meeting of the joint committee drafting the Lokpal bill on May 2 and likely to be in Karnataka between May 12 and 15.

Anna was to address a public meeting at National College, Basavanagudi in Bangalore. However, a candlelight march will held in four places across Bangalore on Sunday.
