"Those who claimed to be messiah of the Janlokpal movement are themselves killing it," Yadav said as he led the protestors who had gathered under the aegis of Swaraj Abhiyan accompanied by Bhushan and Anand Kumar.

DCP North Madhur Verma said, "Yadav, Bhushan and 150 protestors were detained and have been taken to the Maurice Nagar Police station."

Bhushan claimed that they were detained on orders of the Delhi Assembly Speaker who had directed the police that the protestors should not be allowed to march to the gate of the Assembly where the Janlokpal Bill will be tabled by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today.

On the Janlokpal bill, Bhushan said the 2015 bill was different from the 2014 one in several aspects and claimed that the 2015 bill gave more say in appointment and removal of Lokpal.

"The bill has a provision of investigating Central government employees and the Centre will not allow this. Then Kejriwal will play a victim card. The 2014 Bill did not have the provision of investigating the Union government officials," Yadav said.
