New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi's central office in his Amethi constituency was among the premises targeted on Tuesday by Anna Hazare's supporters on the second day of protests outside homes of elected representatives in several parts of the country in response to the Gandhian's call.
As Anna's fast in Ramlila Maidan in Delhi entered the eighth day, the protests in the forms of fasts, sit-ins and demonstrations continued.
The support for Anna's hunger strike scaled new heights when a 60-year-old man Rajendran launched a fast in Veloor village in Kottayam in Kerala sitting atop a coconut tree during daytime.
The Tamil film industry also backed Anna's campaign for a strong Lokpal bill with over 200 of its members observing a fast in Chennai. The protesters included Directors Cheran and Chitra Lakshmanan, actress Rohini and several producers and backstage artistes.
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth lent his weight to Anna's 'peaceful' anti-graft movement, calling it a 'bloodless revolution'. He extended his 'whole-hearted support' to the campaign and said corruption was a dreaded disease that needed to be weeded out.
