New Delhi, Aug 13: Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare has already moved the nation with his call for a protest against the corruption in the country. Now, supports are gathering from overseas. Non Resident Indians (NRIs) will join Anna during his fast-unto-death protest in Delhi starting from Aug 16.

A delegation from the Middle-East countries comprising renowned lawyers and social activists will reach the national capital on Aug 16.

The team of the 25 NRI leaders, which will be led by internationally renowned lawyer K K Sarachandra Bose, will express solidarity of the Indian diaspora with Anna Hazare.

"The support among the Indians abroad to the fight by Anna and team is equally overwhelming as it is in the country. Everybody cannot physically join the fast, so we will carry with us the good will, emotional support, and spirit of patriotism of all NRIs as we believe that only an effective Lokpal Act alone will lead India in the right direction," saidBose while expressing their real intention to support Anna.

Meanwhile, Delhi police and team Anna have been emerged in a new spat on Saturday, Aug 13 when members from Anna's group refused to sign the undertaking handed over by the police.

The cops handed over a letter permitting Anna and his supporters to hold fast protest only for three days and imposed 20 more conditions.

The undertaking needs to be signed all crucial five members of Anna Hazare 's team - Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan and Anna himself.

Prominent lawyer and team Anna member, Prashant Bhushan stated, "We had told the Delhi police that the fast will not go on for more than 10 days, putting conditions is completely unreasonable," and also added, "We will have to exercise our fundamental right, we will go to Jantar Mantar and sit there."
