Pune: In the battle between Team Anna and the government, the government can heave a sigh of relief. Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare will not campaign in the upcoming Assembly elections in five states, Team Anna member Kiran Bedi confirmed on Thursday.
Bedi, who met Anna Hazare in Pune, also added that he has been advised complete rest.
Anna Hazare, admitted to hospital with chest congestion, was responding well to treatment and his condition was improving, doctors attending on him had said on Wednesday.
"Anna is stable and improving. The congestion in his chest has reduced and he got good sleep on Tuesday night," said Sancheti Hospital's Mahendra Kawedia, who has been closely monitoring Anna Hazare's condition.
On Tuesday, the doctors at Sancheti Hospital increased the dosage of antibiotics being given to the activist. Kawedia said since Hazare needs to be kept under observation while antibiotics are administered to him, he might be discharged on Sunday instead of Friday.
Doctors have advised Hazare one month's rest. The activist is suffering from acute bronchitis. Anna Hazare, 74, was rushed to the hospital from his village Ralegaon Siddhi just before December 31 midnight for treatment.
Hazare had announced his plans of campaigning against the Congress in the upcoming Assembly elections after the UPA government failed to bring an effective Lokpal Bill in the winter session of Parliament. However, he had to drop his plans because of his health.
Hazare also had to cancel his 'jail bharo andolan' that was scheduled for December 31, 2011 and January 1, 2012.
