New Delhi: HRD Minister Kapil Sibal was on Tuesday greeted with protests from Anna Hazare supporters at a seminar on Lokpal here, hours after the arrest of the Gandhian.

The students reportedly from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi University and Jamia Millia Islamia University were protesting Hazare's arrest under the banner of All India Student's Association at a seminar.

"Janlokpal Lagoo Karo, Jantantrik Andolan ka daman band karo," they chanted slogans inside the Mavalankar Auditorium taking the audience and the organisers completely by surprise.

They were, however, evicted by the organisers as Sibal stood at the podium silently.

"We were evicted out of the auditorium, when we rose to ask the Minister why our right to protest was being curbed and why Anna Hazare, who has been spearheading the agitation against corruption was arrested in such an undemocratic way," said Ravi Rai, one of the protesting members.

Instead I would rather the Minister be hounded out of the Seminar!
