Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare might not attend a meeting of the core committee of the India Against Corruption in New Delhi on Saturday, sources close to him told The Hindu .

In his latest blogpost, Mr. Hazare said that he had decided to go on with his ‘maun vrat' owing to his poor health.

The committee is meeting for the first time after Team Anna faced several setbacks. The developments in Team Anna — the physical attack on Prashant Bhushan over his remarks on a plebiscite in Kashmir; allegations of misconduct by overcharging travel bills on former IPS officer Kiran Bedi; the resignation of team members Rajendra Singh and P.V. Rajagopal over the increasing political nature of the movement; and Swami Agnivesh's remarks on the “non- transparency” of the IAC's funds — make this meeting crucial for the movement.
