NEW DELHI, Aug 26 (IANS): A lone protester wearing an 'I Am Anna' T-shirt managed to enter the parliament complex Friday and shouted slogans on the road in front of the main porch before security personnel clamped their hands on his mouth and bundled him away.
As soon as he reached the main porch, the protester raised slogans in support of the Jan Lokpal Bill, shouting "Vande Mataram", "Inquilab Zindabad", and "Anna Hazare Zindabad".
He continued to raise the slogans as security personnel swooped down on him and whisked him away.
Police identified the man as Manjit Singh from Rohtak in Haryana. He had gained entry to the complex through a visitor's pass he had obtained in the morning.
On Wednesday and Thursday, small groups of people demonstrated outside Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's 7, Race Course Road official residence in support of Hazare's demand for passing his Jan Lokpal bill that he says is stronger than the government's version that has been referred to a parliamentary standing committee.
