'Fast only for three days with no tent, loudspeaker or personal doctor'

The Delhi Police did not want Anna Hazare to fast for more than three days at the Jaya Prakash Narayan park on Bahadurshah Zafar Marg here and that too without a tent or the use of a microphone.

The other condition that the police imposed on Mr. Hazare was to not allow more than 5000 people in a park, that Team Hazare said, could hold at least 20,000 people. The police also wanted them to restrict the number of vehicles to 50. It decided that only a government doctor would examine Anna Hazare and decide whether he be force-fed or removed to hospital, not a private doctor.

 Of the 22 conditions, these were six that they did not agree to leading to the police denying them permission to stage a fast at the venue offered by the police.

“We rejected these conditions as they were a clear violation of our fundamental rights,” the Team members said in a press release.
