Hazare tells Kejriwal to call off fast

Anna Hazare tonight visited Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal at his indefinite fast site here and urged him to call off his fast citing his deteriorating health.

The meeting between Hazare and Kejriwal took place at around 10:50 PM.

This is the first time that both Hazare and Kejriwal came on a common platform since they parted ways in September last year. Kejriwal had, however, called on Hazare a number of times after the September 19 split.

The fast of Kejriwal against “inflated” power bills has entered the seventh day on Friday at Sunder Nagri in north-east Delhi.

Hazare, who had split with Kejriwal in September last year on the question of anti-corruption movement taking a political plunge, was on way to Amritsar where he will launch his nation-wide tour on Sunday.
