Bangalore, Aug 23 (IANS) Former Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hedge Tuesday appealed to social activist Anna Hazare to call off his fast in view of his deteriorating health.

“I appeal to Annaji to discontinue his fast. We are honestly concerned over his health. If something happens to him, the entire movement would go the wrong way,” Hegde, member of Team Anna, told reporters here.

He charged the government with deliberately delaying consideration on the Jan Lokpal bill. “We had asked the government to introduce both the bills in parliament and let the houses arrive at a conclusion,” he said. “But government did not agree.”

He said that Team Anna had faith in parliament, but they also want the bill to be passed soon.
