When Anna Hazare, escorted by a posse of police, arrived at Rajghat to pray at Mahatma Gandhi's memorial, he was greeted by over 700 people.

As he began to pray, the police asked him to leave soon as the rain worsened. Anna was then seen running along with the police. A clear indication that despite losing three kg in three days, he is still fit and raring to go.

Anna is now on an indefinite fast at Ramlila Maidan, where thousands of his supporters have gathered.

He had been arrested and put in judicial custody at Tihar Jail. Despite the magistrate issuing him release orders, he refused to come out stating that till the government lifts section 144 imposed in JP Park and allowed him to go on a fast without any conditions, he would not leave.

The Delhi Police on 18th August lifted all the conditions and granted Anna permission to fast for 14 days at Ramlila Maidan.
