Social activist Anna Hazare will be discharged on Sunday after undergoing treatment for more than a week. Hazare will return to his village Ralegan Siddhi, where he is expected to take complete rest for a month.
Dr KH Sancheti, who is treating Hazare, said there has been improvement in Hazare's health. "Anna will be discharged tomorrow. There has been considerable progress in his health since the last two days," Dr Sancheti said. He, however, added that Hazare has been advised complete rest for a month.
Hazare has started doing some exercises since two days, sources said.
Hazare was admitted to the hospital on December 31st, two days after he broke his Mumbai hunger strike abruptly. He was reportedly unwell before he went to Mumbai as well. Hazare was suffering from cough, fever and cold due to a chest infection, said doctors.
Hazare had announced in Mumbai that he would campaign against the Congress in five states as part of his agitation. However, he was under pressure from his close aides from Ralegan Siddhi to postpone the same since he was not well. Kiran Bedi, who met Hazare two days back, had announced that Hazare will not undertake any travel or will not campaign in the five states, which are going for the assembly election.
