Ghaziabad, Jan 2 (ANI): Denying links to incident of Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh shown black flags in Punjab, RTI crusader Arvind Kejriwal, a key figure in veteran social activist Anna Hazare"s crusade against corruption, has dubbed it a non-violent way to vent out people's anger against corruption.
"Neither any support is being given to anyone nor should one talk like that because people are fighting against corruption. This is not our movement which includes five or 10 people. It is a movement of the people of this country. And the countrymen in their own non-violent ways are demonstrating against corruption. People are angry and they are expressing it," Kejriwal told the media here.
Asked about date been fixed for core committee's meeting, Kejriwal said: ""Right now we are going to meet Anna ji and after that, as he says we will hold core committee's meeting and we will make final decisions after it."
"Due to his ill health the meeting was postponed. So we will plan according to whatever suits him," he added.
Dr. Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur on Sunday got a taste of public anger over delay in the passage of the Lokpal bill when a group of people shouted slogans and waved black flags at them outside the Golden Temple, where they had gone to offer prayers.
As soon as the prime minister and his wife came out of the temple complex, around 30-35 agitators, including women, shouted "PM wapas jao (prime minister go back)".
They also raised slogans against corruption and demanded the Lokpal bill while the prime minister and his wife were inside the temple. (ANI)
