Even if anti-graft activist Anna Hazare plans to go ahead with his agitation for a strong Lokpal at Mumbai, India Against Corruption (IAC) campaigners have promised lot of action at Delhi's Ramlila maidan too, starting Tuesday.

Team Anna has announced the agitation at Mumbai's MMRDA grounds to demand a stronger version of the Lokpal rather than the one presented by the government in the Parliament earlier last week. Along with Hazare's fast, IAC plans to carry out countrywide jail bharo agitation.

Delhi, too, would see jail bharo agitation, claimed IAC organisers. There would be action at Ramlila maidan too with huge screens beaming live pictures of Hazare's fast in Mumbai. There would be speeches by prominent IAC core team members such as Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan and Devender Sharma. Delhi police has granted permission to team Anna from December 27 to December 31.

There would be certain IAC campaigners sitting on fast at Ramlila maidan too. "However, nothing has been finalised as yet," said Manish Sisodia, a member of IAC core team.

Activist Sanjay Singh would take care of the stage management.
