New Delhi, Aug 27: His mother told him that an old man is fasting and so came Bollywood singer Sonu Niigaam to Ramlila Maidan to treat Anna Hazare with music though he “does not know much” about Jan Lokpal Bill for which the Gandhian is protesting.

Niigaam, 38, came to the protest venue this morning to pledge his support to Hazare and sang his hit numbers, including ‘mera rang de basanti', and Mahatma Gandhi's favourite hymn ‘Vaishnav Janate'.

For 30 minutes, the singer performed at the ground to loud cheers of Hazare supporters.

“My mother told me that an old man is fasting and so I came to treat him with music. He is not taking food and so it is the best thing to do from my side,” Niigaam said.

“I don't know much about the bill. Anna and you (supporters) want peace and I bow before you,” he said. PTI
