Team Anna will finalise the venue of proposed 'anshan' against government version of Lokpal bill from August 16 on Thursday.
According to the sources, the activists of India Against Corruption (IAC) has accepted the proposal of Delhi Police to hold dharna at Jai Prakash Narayan Memorial Park, near Feroz Shah Kotla ground.
IAC member Arvind Kejriwal said that the venue is finalised but will have to take permission of CPWD, which owns the JP Park. The JP Park can accommodate 12,000 people.
The Delhi Police finalsed the venue after inspecting the area and informed Hazare and his team in this regard. Earlier, Team Anna had parleys with Delhi Police chief BK Gupta on Tuesday regarding the venue for Anna Hazare's fast. Gupta had sought two-day time to finalise the venue.
On the other hand, Team Anna had suggested the name of four places--Boat Club, Rajghat , Ramlila Maidan and Shahidi Park-- but Delhi Police turned down the suggestion due to security reasons. Team Anna had also taken NOC from the MCD, which owns the Ramlila Ground.
