New Delhi: The Centre has sought to
not interfere with the decision of Delhi Police`s
refusal of permission to Anna Hazare to hold his protest fast,
saying the force has taken the stand on its own and it was
fully capable of dealing with any situation.
The Home Ministry will not interfere in the decision
of Delhi Police. We have nothing to do with it, the official
A Home Ministry official said the Delhi Police took the
decision of denying permission to Team Anna to stage the
protest since they refused to comply with its set conditions
which are applicable to any group which wanted to stage any
protest in the national capital.
The Centre also thinks that Delhi Police are capable of
dealing with any situation arising out of Hazare’s
announcement that he would go ahead with the protest despite
the refusal of the permission.
"If they (Team Anna) decide to go ahead with their
programme defying the order, law will take its own course,
the official said.
