PTI Supporters of Anna Hazare stage a protest against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Amritsar on Sunday.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur were on Sunday shown black flags by supporters of anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare at the Golden Temple here.

A handful of Hazare’s supporters, including women, raised slogans against corruption and in favour of Lokpal as soon as Dr. Singh and his wife came out after paying obeisance at the Golden Temple.

The supporters also raised slogans asking the PM to go back (“PM wapas jao”). They also showed small black flags to Prime Minister.

Government failed to get the Lokpal Bill passed in the Rajya Sabha on December 29 after opposition from parties, including ally Trinamool Congress.
