    Anna says going to court wrong, to ask for donations for Mumbai venue

    The Bombay High Court has said Anna Hazare and his activists have no right to seek a discounted rate for the city's MMRDA Ground as a venue for their three-day protest, which starts on Tuesday. "The court cannot decide whether the agitation is in public and national interest or politically motivated," said the two judges hearing the case. Anna said his representatives in Mumbai should not have gone to court. "I would have told them don't go to court...we will manage on our own...court is not the right place to bring this up. And if they don't give us any venue, I will fast in jail," he said this evening in his hometown of Ralegan Siddhi.
