Anna Hazare will break his nine-day-old fast if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh tables the Jan Lokpal bill in parliament Thursday, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday.

"If the prime minister is concerned about Anna's health, he should table the Jan Lokpal bill tomorrow in parliament and Anna will break his fast. If anything happens to Anna Hazare, the government will be responsible for that," said Kejriwal at the Ramlila Maidan after the all-party meeting on the Lokpal bill ended in New Delhi.

"On Aug 15, the prime minister in his address to the nation said that some people want to create problems in this country. And on Aug 16, Anna Hazare was arrested on the pretext that his being out can create problems. Now, the prime minister is worried about his health," he said.
