BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Aug 17: BS Yeddyurappa, ex-chief minister, Karnataka who has moved to the High court seeking an anticipatory bail has pledged his “full support" to Anna Hazare and criticised the UPA for arresting him.

"Anna's arrest is deplorable. He has become a role model for thousands of youngsters, who are fed up of corruption. The UPA government's shabby treatment of such people is condemnable," said Yeddyurappa.

“The UPA government and its ministers are not willing to face scrutiny. If the UPA cannot enact the Jan Lok Pal Bill, the prime minister has to step down," he added.

Meanwhile, Anna's arrest has only created a uproar across the nation with large masses coming forward to his support.

Kiran Bedi had earlier said that Anna wouln't come out of the jail unless their demands are met.

Bedi also said that negotiations were going on with the police on whether Ramlila Maidan would be finalised as the venue to conduct fast, adding that the police had given them only 7 days to hold their fast, while they wanted a time period of one month.

"Anna may not come out at all tonight. We've agreed on fast venue but not on the duration," said Kiran Bedi.

Meanwhile, there were reports that the Delhi police had finally stooped to Anna Hazare's demands and agreed to extend his fast.

The venue, Ramlila Maidan can hold about 25,000-30,000 people and all sort of restrictions will be lifted in terms of number of people and number of vehicles. The Delhi Police is also believed to have agreed to most of Anna's demands.
