NRIs court arrest

The Indians, who have come all the way to participate in the fight against corruption, shouted slogans and expressed willingness to sacrifice anything for the cause while courting arrest at the Civil Lines.

“We are here to support a noble cause and we will follow the footsteps of Anna Hazare and his course of agitation till the end, whether in jail or outside. We condemn this move by the government to house arrest Annaji and this shows the government’s desperation to negate the protests by the veteran Gandhian,” said Advocate K K Sarachandra Bose, an internationally renowned lawyer who is leading the NRI delegation to India.

Bose said the members of his group have come from different countries in the Middle East, leaving their jobs, in response to the call by the anti-corruption crusader. “We are determined to join the crusade till it wins the cause, however, difficult would be the course of action, be it indefinite fast, days in the jail or hostilities by the ruling regime. Only the Jan Lokpal can lead India in the right direction,” said Bose, echoing excitement over the swelling support to Anna’s movement among the Indian diaspora.

This is the first batch of NRIs, which has come to support Anna in person. Some of the other members in the delegation, who have courted arrest are Guruji K Madhavan, Viren Narkar, Suman Suneja, D P  Gulati and Mohan Kamath.
