Team Anna calls for 'Dilli chalo' from Aug 27
Arvind Kejriwal also appealed to people to hold a protest outside the Prime Minister's residence.

New Delhi: Team Anna Hazare on Thursday gave a call to the people to peacefully march towards the national capital from Saturday if the government fails to resolve the Lokpal issue.

Arvind Kejriwal, core member of Hazare's team, also appealed to people in New Delhi to hold a protest outside the 7, Race Course Road - official residence of the Prime Minister - demanding tabling of Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament.

He asked the Prime Minister why he is not doing anything about the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"By Saturday, if there is no solution, we will appeal to the people for 'Dilli chalo'. People should come in large numbers and sit here till the government finds solution to the issue, if it doesn't introduce the 'Jan Lokpal bill' in Parliament they should not leave till it is resolved," he told reporters after a meeting of the team's core committee.

The meeting also discussed last night's talks between civil society and government representatives that ended in a deadlock.

Team Anna reaffirmed that they are ready for talks with the government, but insisted that government should give in writing its intentions before the next rounds of talks.

"The government should give in writing their intentions and what they want. We will deliberate on their written statement and respond to it once consensus is reached among us. Then we will go for talks," he said.

The RTI activist said Team Anna will talk to political parties to seek consensus on the issue.

"We are going to start talking to other political parties today. We are seeking their time as we have to come to know through newspapers that they may have reservations with some points. We will meet them to resolve these doubts and issues," he said.

The civil rights activist also called for peaceful protest outside the Prime Minister's residence later in the evening on Thursday.
