New Delhi: Anna Hazare may come face to face
with his detractors at Jantar Mantar on December 11 when he
sits on a fast for a strong Lokpal bill, with his former
blogger and others planning to organise a three-day protest
raising questions against his methods.

His former blogger Raju Parulekar on Tuesday said youth from
various parts of the country will hold a three-day protest at
Jantar Mantar from December 10 against Hazare and his
supporters.

Hazare will sit on a fast at Jantar Mantar on December 11
to protest against alleged dilution of provisions of Lokpal
bill.

"The activists will come face to face with Hazare. They
will raise questions about `goons-oriented` activism. They
will ask Hazare about his views on how Kiran Bedi can continue
in his team when a case has been registered against her.

"They will ask him whether they will apply the same
yardstick to ministers in a similar situation. They will also
ask about financial dealings of Arvind Kejriwal," Parulekar,
who fell out with Hazare over restructuring of his team.

However, he said he will not attend the three-day protest
but will be part of the protest beginning December 23 when
activists will gherao the residences of Team Anna members
Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan.
