Hazare condemns blackening of Sonia`s poster

Anna Hazare on Monday condemned the blackening of Congress president Sonia Gandhi`s poster in Delhi, saying it was not good for democracy.



Ralegan Siddhi: Anna Hazare on Monday condemned
the blackening of Congress president Sonia Gandhi`s poster in
Delhi, saying it was not good for democracy.

"Sonia Gandhi`s poster has been blackened. This is not
good for democracy. We condemn this incident," he said.
Angry over the attack on Baba Ramdev, his followers today
gathered outside Congress headquarters and threw black ink on
Sonia Gandhi`s poster, triggering a clash between Congressmen
and supporters of the yoga guru.

The Gandhian had also denounced as an attempt to "blacken
democracy" the incident in which a man threw black ink at
Ramdev last week and said such attacks will not deter
"people`s movements".

"This is not an attempt to blacken the face of Ramdev.
This is an attempt to blacken democracy," Hazare had said in a
statement from his village where he is convalescing after a
bout of bronchitis.

Kamran Siddiqui, an NGO worker, had thrown black ink at
the yoga guru at a press conference in New Delhi, apparently
in retaliation to Ramdev`s response to a question on the Batla
House encounter.
