Anna Hazare reaches Delhi to attend Lokpal meet, may end maun vrat.!!!

Anna Hazare tonight reached Delhi to attend a meeting of the Standing Committee on the issue of Lokpal Bill tomorrow ahead of which he is expected to end his vow of silence observed for the past 19 days.
Hazare, who had threatened to launch another hungerstrike if a strong Lokpal Bill is not passed in Parliament's winter session, left his village Ralegan Siddhi this afternoon and reached Delhi at 8:40 pm. He is staying at Maharashtra Sadan.
The 74-year-old activist, who is on maun vrat since October 16, will attend the meeting of the Standing Committee on Lokpal Bill along with other team members tomorrow, the third such meeting.
The team had met the Committee this evening as also after Hazare undertook a 13-day fast in August demanding that the Jan Lokpal Bill be passed in the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
Soon after the Lokpal Bill was referred to the Committee, Hazare and his associates had deposed before the panel saying it should ask the government to withdraw the Lokpal Bill in its present form as it would "encourage corruption".
