Detractors to protest against Anna Hazare

NEW DELHI: Anna Hazare may come face to face with his detractors at Jantar Mantar on December 11 when he sits on a fast for a strong Lokpal bill, with his former blogger and others planning to organise a three-day protest raising questions against his methods.

His former blogger Raju Parulekar today said youth from various parts of the country will hold a three-day protest at Jantar Mantar from December 10 against Hazare and his supporters.

Hazare will sit on a fast at Jantar Mantar on December 11 to protest against alleged dilution of provisions of Lokpal bill.

"The activists will come face to face with Hazare. They will raise questions about 'goons-oriented' activism. They will ask Hazare about his views on how Kiran Bedi can continue in his team when a case has been registered against her.

"They will ask him whether they will apply the same yardstick to ministers in a similar situation. They will also ask about financial dealings of Arvind Kejriwal," Parulekar, who fell out with Hazare over restructuring of his team, told PTI.

However, he said he will not attend the three-day protest but will be part of the protest beginning December 23 when activists will gherao the residences of Team Anna members Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan.
