Anna Hazare Dharna before Prime Minister's house in Guwahati

Anna defiant as Govt looks for escape route

Over 100 supporters of social activist Anna Hazare staged a dharna in front of the rented house of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at Sarumotoria here on Monday. They beat drums, shouted slogans Anna Hazare zindabad and in support of the demand for tabling the Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament.
The rented house of Dr. Singh, a Rajya Sabha member from this State, is owned by Hemoprova Saikia, former Assam Minister and wife of the former Chief Minister, Hiteswar Saikia.
Police arrived at the spot but Anna's supporters dispersed peacefully after about half hour dharna. The protesters included Gauhati BJP MP Bijoya Chakravarty's daughter and award-winning filmmaker Suman Haripriya and son Ranajit Chakravarty, a lawyer.
Security has been beefed up at Dr. Singh's residence in the wake of the protests.
Anna's supporters staged a dharna in front of the residence of the BJP MP also. However, there were no reports of demonstration in front of the houses of other MPs from Assam.
