Social activist Anna Hazare on Friday admitted in medanta hospital in Gurgaon and he was under intensive of care of a team of doctors.

Team Anna member Kiran Bedi tweeted: "Anna is admitted in Medanta and under intensive care of a team of doctors. What are the health issues only Doctors can say as professionals!"

Former Team Anna member and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal also confirmed this on Twitter and wished Hazare a fast recovery.

"Anna in hospital. I wish I cud go to see him. I wish him fast recovery," tweeted Kejriwal

Hazare, 75, was the face of the popular India Against Corruption movement, which was launched in December 2010 and marked the first time that both the poor and the middle classes of the country united against graft in large numbers.

Thousands took to the streets in August 2011, as Hazare, activist Arvind Kejriwal and former police officer Kiran Bedi  held a series of hunger strikes and protests in New Delhi and elsewhere.

Hazare--who by far drew the biggest crowds--styled himself on Mahatma Gandhi whose non-violent protests won India freedom from British colonial rule.
