Team Anna member Kiran Bedi on Thursday said Anna Hazare will postpone his protests if Parliament session is extended to introduce and get the lokpal bill passed.

"If Parliament decides to work overtime to finalise the lokpal, then Anna will obviously wait. He will go on fast if he sees Parliament adjourned without passing a law or passing a weak law," Bedi told NDTV.

She was responding to a question on whether Hazare will go ahead with his protest plans if Parliament extends its ongoing Winter Session to take up lokpal bill.

Hazare on Thursday announced a jail bharo agitation from January one besides going on an indefinite fast from December 27 to press for a strong lokpal.
