RALEGAON SIDDHI (M’RASHTRA): As Bombay High Court rejected a petition seeking concessional rate for hiring MMRDA ground to hold his fast, Anna Hazare on Friday said he will seek donations from public to book the protest venue.

“Azad Maidan will not be sufficient. More than one lakh people can take part in MMRDA ground. We will ask people to give donations for booking MMRDA,” Hazare said.

The Bombay High Court rejected Team Anna’s petition for direction to Maharashtra government for allotting MMRDA ground at concessional rates for Hazare’s fast, saying it cannot come to the conclusion if the agitation was in public interest or politically motivated. (PTI)
