Anna to stay in Tihar till fast location is finalised

"Anna said that I will not go till the issue of location for fast is sorted out because it will be of no use. If I come out, the same problem will be there again where the fast should take place," Hazare's associate Manish Sisodia said, quoting the activist.

“So he said that tell us what is the status where we will fast, solve the issue,” he told NDTV.
According to Sisodia, the fast was under way. What was supposed to place in J.P. Park was taking place inside Tihar, he said.

“Anna's fast is going on, the movement is going on, he has left the barracks of the jail but is in the room of a jail official. Whatever we were supposed to do in the (J.P.) park, we are doing here," Sisodia said.

He added that other senior members of Team Anna would join him at Tihar. Supporters have already gathered outside the jail.

Hazare was jailed here Tuesday ahead of his fast for an effective anti-corruption law. The Delhi Police action led to protests across the country. The government changed its mind later in the evening and released Hazare but he refused to come out until he was allowed to carry on his hunger strike without any conditions.
