Anti-corruption activists Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan will meet their leader Anna Hazare in Ralegan Siddhi on Tuesday. According to reports, Team Anna members Bhushan and Kejriwal will enquire about Anna Hazare's health and discuss the future strategy in their fight against corruption.
Anna Hazare is expected to take a final decision about their next move keeping in mind the upcoming assembly polls in five states. Hazare is likely to announce that his team will campaign for a strong lokpal bill in four of the five states bound for assembly elections in the coming weeks but will not name any political party.
The states where Team Anna is planning to campaign are Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Goa. The fifth state, Manipur, has been left out.
A decision to this effect was taken by Team Anna's core committee, which met in New Delhi on Monday to discuss the next course of action. Kejriwal and Bhushan will also apprise Anna of the outcome of the core committee's eight-hour meeting that took place yesterday.
Anna has been advised by doctors to rest for a month.
