New Delhi, Aug 26: Parliament complex witnessed high drama this afternoon when a Congress worker shouted slogans in support of Anna Hazare before being taken away by the security personnel.

Manjeet Singh Grewal, a 39-year-old property dealer and Congress worker from Rohtak in Haryana, had come to Parliament on visitor's pass issued on the recommendation of party MP Anantha Venkitarama Reddy.

Wearing a grey safari suit, he was in a queue along with visitors at around 3 PM. Suddenly, he took off his shirt, revealing a white undershirt with Hazare's photo and ‘I am Anna' written on it and shouted slogans in favour of the Gandhian and attacking the government.

He chanted slogans like “Anna Zindabad” and “Anna on fast, government not acting”.

Security personnel immediately rushed towards the well-built man and took him away.

He was detained by Delhi Police. “We are questioning him,” said a senior police official. PTI
