Ralegan Sarpanch to meet Rahul Gandhi
"Our village sarpanch Jaisingh Mapari will meet Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Tuesday and request him to visit the village," Hazare`s aide Datta Awari told PTI over phone from Ralegan Siddhi. The villagers would like to show Rahul the progress done by Ralegan Siddhi in areas like water-shed development, he said.
Asked if the issue of Hazare`s `Moun vrat` (vow of silence) would figure in Mapari`s discussions with Rahul Gandhi, Awari said the issue would also be discussed. Hazare today began indefinite `maun vrat` (vow of silence) at his native village for "atma shanti" (peace of soul).
