New Delhi: In view of the chances of not getting permission to hold his indefinite protest at Jantar Mantar on August 16, social activist Anna Hazare is pondering over taking a legal course. He is expected that he will file a writ petition demanding permission to fast at Jantar Mantar.

Sources close to the Gandhian said, he has decided to continue with his fast on August 16 even if he is denied permission and would court arrest with his supporters.

Team Anna has not received a formal notice about their reservation about his protest, but they are confident that police won’t allow them to go ahead with their protest. Anna and his team would proceed with the legal proceedings only after getting a formal notice.

Team Anna would plead before the court to ensure their Fundamental Right to Protest. If the court refuses to intervene, they would continue with their fast and court arrest.
