New Delhi, Aug 13: Congress will come out tomorrow with a response to Anna Hazare's accusation that the government is putting conditions on his fast.  

Congress spokespersons refused to respond to Hazare's allegations and his letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the issue, saying the party will be giving its views tomorrow.

The party has organized a press conference at the AICC headquarters on Sunday where questions on Hazare issue as well as other topics will be taken. Generally, there is no party briefing on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said, “I do not think it is now appropriate for Anna to sit on dharna after the government has given the space and all facilities (for protest).

“He has already met members of the Standing Committee of Law and Justice, which has representatives from all parties and has put forth his views.” PTI
