Team Anna on Monday appeared to see a conspiracy in the collapse of the northern power grid with activists alleging new developments are happening in Delhi as Anna Hazare is sitting on an indefinite fast.

Kumar Vishwas, a member of Team Anna's Core Committee who is conducting the proceedings along with another activist Sanjay Singh at the Hazare fast venue, said government can do anything but people will come out and join the Hazare movement.

"Government can cut the grid, cut electricity, cut metro services, bus, auto services. But people will join Anna Hazare's movement.

"Government is still arrogant and dictatorial. The time till Anna sits on fast new developments are happening in Delhi. Today, the grid has failed, Metro is down but to reach here you don't need metro or a car. You need only will and courage," he said.

Almost entire Delhi went without power for about eight hours on Monday due to the collapse of the Northern Grid resulting in power outages in the capital putting people to misery on a humid day when water distribution and Metro services were largely affected.
