Anna Hazare flays team for moving court

Anna Hazare Ralegan-Siddhi (Maharashtra), Dec 23 (IANS) Veteran social crusader Anna Hazare Friday termed as “improper” the decision by his activists to move the Bombay High Court seeking concessions for a venue to carry out his proposed agitation in Mumbai from Dec 27.

?The decision by my activists was not correct. They are inexperienced and have committed a mistake. But now they have learnt a lesson,? Hazare told mediapersons.

His reactions came soon after the Bombay High Court disposed of a petition by his team members challenging the high commercial rates — around Rs.19,00,000, including deposit — demanded by the MMRDA (Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority) for renting out the ground.

He said that in the wake of the court decision, the MMRDA Ground in suburban Bandra-Kurla Complex was more or less fixed.

?I am told that the MMRDA will give us some concessions and we are also getting donors to cover that cost. So, I have given the green signal for the venue,? Hazare said.

Team Anna members had filed a writ petition in the Bombay High Court Thursday demanding the MMRDA ground free of cost since the proposed agitation was in public interest.
