Earlier, starting the agitation with the mandatory visit to Raj Ghat, Hazare was recieved by a stream of supporters at the city’s ancient observatory.

The Congress party had come in for criticism last year following the arrest of Hazare in August, hours before he was scheduled to begin his agitation.

On Wednesday, Hazare was joined in his agitation by his supporters including Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan and Manish Sisodia.
