Hazare fears removal, asks supporters to maintain peace

Addressing his supporters at Ramlila grounds after the virtual breakdown of talks, he said the way the government has now reacted to the demands of the civil society has exposed its real face, that of dictators and Black British.

However, later Team Anna member Kiran Bedi said she has received an sms message from the Delhi police commissioner that Hazare will not be removed till the doctors declare that his condition is critical.

Hazare had earlier said that team has got information that he would be removed and taken away "somewhere" at 4 am.

"If such a thing happens I appeal to all of you not to resort to violence... I understand the government's design. If you try to stop them there will be huge violence. To break this movement, they want you to resort to violence," he told the cheering crowd late in the night waving the national tricolour and lapping up every word that Hazare said.

Hazare appealed that if he is taken to jail they should maintain calm. He said if there is any violence he will not be able to bear it.
