Team Anna supporters protest outside BJP officeAugust 2nd, 2012 - 6:43 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 2 (IANS) Team Anna supporters Thursday staged protests outside the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters here, demanding that the party should support Anna Hazare’s campaign against corruption.
Several supporters gathered outside the party office and shouted slogans against the BJP for not supporting the activists for a stringent Lokpal Bill. Some Team Anna activists also protested at the BJP office Wednesday.
At Jantar Mantar, Hazare and his team members announced they will call off their agitation Friday evening, having continued the indefinite fast for nine days.
The decision to call off the hunger strike was taken due to rising concern about the health of Arvind Kejriwal, Gopal Rai and Manish Sisodia, who have been on fast since July 25, activists said. Hazare began his hunger strike July 29.
