Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu has strongly condemned the police action against social activist Anna Hazare and his supporters on Tuesday.

The police action against Anna Hazare, who was set to launch a hunger-strike in a peaceful manner demanding a stronger Jan Lokpal legislation, was totally "undemocratic and unconstitutional", Chandrababu Naidu said in a statement.

Asking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to apologise to the nation for action against Hazare and other social activists, Naidu said "the arrest of Hazare and his team is the height of the despotic rule of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre that is suppressing all civil rights".

The TDP extends full support to Hazare's fight against corruption, he said.
