New Delhi: Anna Hazare will continue his fast for a stronger anti-corruption law at the Ramlila ground here, his aide Arvind Kejriwal said Friday, shortly before the civil society activist was to leave Tihar Jail.

"He'll (Hazare) address the gathering once he comes out of jail and leave for Ramlila ground. He should leave Tihar Jail around 11 a.m.," Kejriwal told reporters.

Fasting inside Tihar since Tuesday, Hazare, 74, will visit Rajghat and India Gate before he reaches Ramlila ground, Team Anna member Kiran Bedi said.

"Anna is absolutely fine. He has no health problems," Bedi added.

"Basic facilities like the tent have been put up for the supporters. We have provided a room and bathroom facilities for Anna," Kejriwal said.

"The crowds gathered to support Anna Hazare are spiritual, and there have been no incidents of violence so far in the country where political rallies turn violent easily," he said.

"We've told all our supporters that anyone indulging in anti-social behaviour should be be immediately reported to the police," he added.

Team Anna, which has been permitted to fast for 15 days, may get an extension.

"The police told us if you put application again after 15 days, we will consider it," Bedi said.

"Delhi Police Commissioner B.K. Gupta has also informed us that after four days they are likely to extend the fast duration for more than 15 days," Kejriwal added.

Hazare had planned to begin his fast for a stronger Lokpal Bill at the J.P. Park in the ITO area Tuesday.

Delhi Police imposed certain conditions before the protest could be allowed. Hazare however refused to agree, after which the police detained him and his associates Tuesday.

He was sent to Tihar and was subsequently released Tuesday night, but he refused to leave the jail until allowed to carry on the fast without any conditions.

Hazare has been demanding the government to bring the prime minister, higher judiciary and the conduct of MPs inside parliament within the ambit of the Lokpal (ombudsman).
