New Delhi: Union Science and Technology Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who played a crucial role in breaking the Lokpal deadlock, visited the private hospital in Gurgaon where Anna Hazare's is recuperating after his 12-days–long fast.

Deshmukh was at Medanta to take stock of Anna’s health on Monday.

On Sunday, Anna Hazare was admitted to the hospital.

It was Deshmukh who finally broke the ice with the Gandhian when he met him carrying the compromise formula.

He also carried the ‘Sense of the House’ letter from the Prime Minister to Anna, which carried the resolution on his demands on Jan Lokpal Bill.
