Calling former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh a 'good man', AAP supremo, Arvind Kejriwal said it was him who shielded India from the global economic recession in 2008 by taking a series of timely measures.

Social activist Anna Hazare broke his week-long fast on February 5 but was admitted to a hospital after complaining of weakness due to lack of blood supply to his brain on Thursday.
Fadnavis, who reached Hazare's native Ralegan Siddhi village in Ahmednagar district in the afternoon and held prolonged talks with him, said the government has accepted the activist's demands.

On Thursday, Malik had accused Hazare of being an "RSS and Sangh Parivar agent", but the party immediately distanced itself from his remarks.

The 81-year-old anti-corruption crusader, however, warned that he would launch the protest on January 30, the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, if the government failed to fulfil his demands.
