New Delhi, Aug 6 (IANS) Social activist Anna Hazare, who is scheduled to sit on a fast at Jantar Mantar from Aug 16 against the government version of the Lokpal bill, is likely to shift the protest venue to Ramlila ground, an activist said Saturday.

“Hazare will sit on an indefinite hunger strike from Aug 16 at Ramlila Maidan instead of Jantar Mantar. We have already received a no objection certificate (NOC) from Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD),” Aswathi Muralidharan, member of the non-governmental organisation (NGO) Parivartan, which is seeking support for the Jan Lokpal bill, told IANS.

She also added that the Delhi Police is likely to grant permission to Hazare to sit on his fast at Ramlila ground, instead of Jantar Mantar.

However, Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said: “Nothing has been decided in this regard.”
