Pune: Notwithstanding the absence of Pune MP
Suresh Kalmadi in the city, activists of Anna Hazare`s
anti-corruption movement staged a demonstration outside his
residence last night, chanting bhajans for over half an hour.
The demonstration was in response to the call given by
`India Against Corruption` asking its activists to stage
protests in front of the houses of MPs in their respective
cities to highlight the `Jan Lokpal Bill` issue, for which,
the Gandhian is on an indefinite fast in Delhi.

About 150 volunteers, who assembled in front of `Kalmadi
House` along the Karve road in Kothrud area here, sang bhajans
like `Raghupati raghav rajaram` to the tune of musical
instruments, even as police maintained a strict vigil around
the place.
