Delhi Police rejects Anna’s fast venue

Updated: August 25, 2011 15:08 IST

Delhi Police today rejected permission for Anna Hazare's indefinite fast at JP Park in New Delhi. Police said Anna's team refused to give an undertaking that the Gandhian would end his fast by Thursday and restrict the number of protesters to 5,000. The move comes on a day when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh used his Independence Day speech to question Hazare's proposed fast on Lokpal Bill and asserted that those who are opposed to the Bill should not resort to fasts-unto-death.
