The fast will go parallel to the Delhi assembly election campaign in which Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadami Party has high stakes.
Although Hazare and Kejriwal have parted ways on the issue of floating a political party, Hazare has always shown sympathy for Kejriwal.
At his 75th birthday last week, Hazare, while attacking Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi, hinted that he might support Kejriwal’s candidates if they had a clean record.
Meantime, Hazare has suspended his tour to Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh scheduled to begin on June 23 as he is going to undergo a minor eye surgery. He will undertake the tour after the operation, sources said.
