Update: Anna will go ahead with his 3 day fast in Mumbai from December 27 at MMRDA grounds. MMRDA will give some concessions and the ground hire cost will be around Rs 7 lakh
As MMRDA authorities declined to lower the charges for MMRDA grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex which could cost up to Rs. 19 lakh, Anna may just have to choose Azad Maidan for his indefinite hunger strike which starts from December 27.
While MMRDA grounds could have accommodated up to 1 lakhs people, the section of the Azad Maidan will only accommodate 4,000 people. Anna’s associates are discussing with sports association section, so that they can accommodate more people.
Anna is still waiting for the permission to start his fast on Azad Maidan.
