Golden Temple:Not 'Happy New Year' for PM, shown black flags

Manmohan Singh
Amritsar, Jan 1: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh seems to have failed to enjoy his visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar on the morning of the New Year 2012. He was shown black flags outside the temple by Anna Hazare's supporters.

The PM along with his wife Gursharan Kaur on Sunday, Jan 1 reached Amritsar and visited the temple to pray in the holy shrine. While coming out of the temple, a large number of people, under the banner of India Against Corruption (IAC), raised slogans against the PM.

Demanding a strong Jan Lokpal, Anna's supporters, who reportedly spent their 31st night at the temple just to show protest against the PM at the "right moment", gathered and raised slogan, "PM Jao Jan Lokpal Bill Lao" (Go PM Go, Bring Jan Lokpal).

Anna's supporters protested against the UPA government as it failed to bring the anti-corruption bill as they had promised to do during the winter session of the Parliament.
