Anna Hazare greeted with black flags in Chennai
Chennai: Social activist Anna Hazare, spearheading an anti-graft movement demanding for a strong Lokpal, was on Sunday greeted with black flags by a fringe group on his arrival at the airport here.
Five persons of `Makkal Sakthi Katchi` were arrested for showing black flags to the 74 year-old activist, alleging him to be against reservation policy and demanded that he go back.
Airport police arrested the five men when Hazare landed here to attend a series of events including addressing a public gathering in the evening, besides attending a special screening of a movie, "Welcome back Gandhi," the Hindi version of Tamil film, "Muthalvar Mahatma."
Hazare had addressed a huge gathering at Bangalore yesterday, asking the Government to quit if it cannot bring an effective Lokpal Bill and accused it of "cheating" the country by doing a volte-face on its promises.
