Delhi Police deny permission for Anna Hazare’s campaign

As the days come for Team Anna’s indefinite fast, war of allegations between activists and government has started. As part of this, yesterday Delhi Police clearly refused to permit Team Anna for campaigning peaceful at Jantar Mantar from July 25 as like that happened on last year too.

“People will not tolerate. Anshan will take place — either at Jantar Mantar or in jail,” activist Arvind Kejriwal said on Twitter.

Reacting over Delhi Police’s action, activist Arvind Kejriwal alleged that Union home minister P Chidambaram was behind this.

“Real reason is that Chidambaram is behind denial. He will never allow permission. Anshan is against these 15 ministers,” he posted on Twitter. Within one or two days, the anti corruption core committee will give better respond.

Earlier on basis of CAG draft, anti corruption committee made allegations against 15 cabinet ministers including Prime Minister called them “corrupt” and demanding for a setting up a separate SIT for investigations.

This move is seemed to an effort of government against them, trying to disrupt an indefinite protest campaign “a movement against corruption” that is a very big issue now”.

But is has been expected that all efforst by govt. may be grounded as Another activist who is stand with Anna, Yoge Guru Baba Ramdev who has a permission letter from the North Delhi Municipal Corporation to use Ramlila between July 25 and August 30, may go ahead the protest at its prefixed date.

“We are partners in the anti-corruption movement, so if Team Anna asks for using Ramlila we will try to accommodate them,” S K Tijarawala, spokesperson for Ramdev told reporters, adding, they were bringing “the matter to the Delhi Police” about the matter.

Despite it, Police reasoned the undefined date of commencement of the monsoon session of Parliament for denial of permission.

Rajan Bhagat, PRO, Delhi Police confronted, “Blocking Jantar Mantar Road from July 25-August 8 will not be possible as it is one of the main roads. We have requested the organisers to come up with a mutually acceptable proposal.”
