Anna Hazare’s Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan’s Delhi office will temporarily be located in a flat under Kiran Bedi’s possession.

Sources said the office would act as the secretariat of the anti-corruption movement to be coordinated by Hazare’s NGO,till they find a bigger place. The headquarters of the movement will remain in Hazare’s native village Ralegan Siddhi.

The DDA flat in Jahangirpuri once housed an office of Bedi’s NGO Navjyoti India Foundation but has been lying unused for some time.

Among the places being considered for a permanent office by Hazare’s associates is a rejuvenation centre,Health Village,in Noida. Sources said the centre,spread over about 40,000 sq ft,is run by Mukund Health Solutions and is owned by one of the followers of Baba Ramdev.

Hazare,an avid naturopathy and Ayurveda enthusiast,is said to be interested in the centre as compared to the other options. His associate Vishvambhar Choudhari said Hazare would decide after a thorough background check of the owners of the places.

Hazare associate Sunita Godara said while Hazare was to visit the Health Vilalge and take a call on October 6,when he was scheduled to address a farmers’ rally in Meerut,he had to cancel the plan due to “health complications”.

Lt Col Bijender Khokhar (retd),among Hazare’s closest confidants in Delhi,is expected to hold charge of the BVJA’s Delhi office. Bedi and Godara would supervise the working,said sources.
