New Delhi: Terming Anna Hazare`s detention
by Delhi Police as "unconstitutional", Samajawadi Party Chief
Mulayam Singh Yadav today said the Gandhian and his supporters
must be released "immediately".

"His detention is unconstitutional and if the
Government has any sense left, Hazare and his supporters
should be released immediately," he told reporters outside
Parliament here.

Yadav said Hazare was alone at the time of his detention
and "there was no violence happening there and there was no
need for this."

The SP leader said the Government`s step has led to a
situation where "students, advocates and others have come on
road to protest against this".

Asked if he supported Anna`s movement, he said, "We have
been fighting against corruption and he is also doing the
same."
