New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev and the Art of Living Foundation head Sri Sri Ravishankar on Wednesday joined protestors expressing solidarity with Anna Hazare outside Tihar Jail, PTI reported.

Ramdev, with whom Hazare and his associates have differences due to his alleged links with Hindutva elements, reached Tihar Jail on Wednesday afternoon. He was denied entry in Tihar Jail to meet Anna Hazare.

Earlier, Ramdev submitted a memorandum against Hazare’s arrest to President Pratibha Patil. Addressing protesters, Ramdev termed Hazare’s arrest as a

“conspiracy in the name of democracy”.

“Anna is fighting for a strong Lokpal and his dream will be fulfilled. The whole country and all patriotic countrymen are with him in this struggle,” he said.

Activists Kiran Bedi, Swami Agnivesh and Medha Patkar had earlier joined hundreds of protestors while a large number of the Gandhian’s supporters took out marches across the city.

Sri Sri Ravishankar has meanwhile also gone to Tihar Jail to meet and mollify Anna Hazare.
