Chief of Shiv Sena Uddhav Thackeray, whose party is an ally of the BJP at the Centre and in Maharashtra, had extended his support to Anna on Sunday. He asked him to emulate socialist leader jayprakash narayan and lead an agitation against corruption.
Anna has earlier warned Modi government that if they would not fulfill their demand he will return his Padma Bhushan award.

He also said that the centre has taken steps on all the issues, which was demanded by Anna. Anna should withdraw his fast unto death without any hesitation.
