New Delhi, Aug 18 (IANS) A team of doctors from the Delhi Medical Association (DMA) would provide medical help to thousands of people who will fast with Anna Hazare at Ramlila ground where the Gandhian would continue his indefinite strike from Friday.

“We will be taking position at Ramlila ground once Anna Hazare reaches there. The aim is not just to help the supporters but also support the movement against corruption,” DMA president Vinod Khetarpal told IANS Thursday.

DMA, with over 12,000 doctors affiliated to it, also provided medical aid to supporters who were fasting with Hazare during his protest at Jantar Mantar in April.

“Our doctors will be sporting black ribbons. We will make sure that no services are hit at the hospitals,” Khetarpal added. “A team of 4-5 doctors will be there to monitor on an hourly basis.”

Anna Hazare has been on indefinite since Tuesday, protesting against the government’s version of the Lokpal Bill.
