Anna will call off fast if resolution passed: Bhushan

"He (hazare) has made his position clear that he will break his fast if this minimum demand of at least the resolution containing three things is passed by Parliament or at least table the Janlokpal Bill.  Then he will withdraw the fast,"  Prashan Bhushan, member of Team Anna, said.

"If it is passed today, he will call off the fast immediately," he said.

Bhushan, a lawyer himself, said the resolution approving the three demands of civil society--lower bureaucracy to be brought in the ambit of Lokpal, creation of Lokpal in all the states through a legislation and approval of citizens charter--has to be brought by the government formally.

He said earlier Hazare had said at least table the Janlokpal Bill.  "Now now he has said if you can't table the alright, at least pass a resolution on these three issues which affects the common people of the country, then I can call off the fast while maintaining the right to continue the strike on the issue."

He criticised the government for not bringing a resolution to Parliament to discuss the three key demands of Hazare.
