Anna may protest at Jantar Mantar on Dec 11
The standing committee is expected to submit its recommendations on the Lokpal Bill to Parliament on December 7.

New Delhi: Anna Hazare is planning to hold a day-long protest at Jantar Mantar on December 11 if the parliamentary panel examining the Lokpal bill does not come up with recommendations for a strong anti-graft ombudsman, an activist said on Monday.

"If the standing committee does not give recommendations for a strong Lokpal, Anna will sit on a day-long protest at Jantar Mantar Dec 11 with other civil society activists," a Team Anna member told IANS.

The standing committee is expected to submit its recommendations to Parliament on December 7 during the ongoing winter session. The government will be able to introduce the Lokpal bill only after that.

The winter session is slated to end December 21.

"We have approached Delhi Police, seeking permission for the day-long protest," the source added.

Earlier, a spokesperson for India Against Corruption (IAC) said the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has given the go-ahead to Hazare and his associates to stage a demonstration at Ramlila ground December 27-January 5.

The 74-year-old social activist was on a 12-day hunger strike here in August this year, demanding the government enact a strong law to deal with corruption in India.
