Activist Anna Hazare will not be physically present in the national capital; however, Team Anna has planned his huge presence here through screens. Famous Ramlila maidan will have large screens to show his fast in Mumbai live.

Senior Team Anna members including senior lawyers Shanti Bhushan and Prashant Bhushan and playwright Arvind Gaur will be present at Ramlila Maidan to address and inspire people. The anti-graft organisation is making preparations for a big gathering at the venue where Anna had observed fast in August.

“We have planned a big event in Delhi. Here Anna’s fast in Mumbai will be shown live. There would be big screens for this. Other programmes of mass awareness would also continue with it.

“Senior team members and anti-graft activists would be available at the maidan to lead these programmes,” said Aswathi Muralidharan of India Against Corruption (IAC).

As a run up to the programme at Ramlila Maidan, the IAC organised a torchlight procession in Ghaziabad on Sunday.

A run from India Gate to Jantar Mantar was also organised.

Key Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal will fast along with Anna Hazare in Mumbai.
