After that Anna wrote letter Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Anna Hazare in his letter to Prime Minister wrote that
The government's attitude gave a hint of "dictatorship" as those raising voice against it are being "crushed" particularly under his government.
Your Government is trying to crush those who raise their voice against corruption. This is happening more often in your Government.
Demanding Prime Minister intervention Anna wrote that "you are 79-years-old and are holding the nation's top position. You have got everything from life. What else do you want from life? Show courage and take some concrete steps."
Noting that it was the duty of the Prime Minister to protect the Constitution and democracy.

Prime Minister said that Anna should go to Delhi police.
Singh said "the terms and conditions on which you are entitled to carry on with your protest are decided by the statutory authorities concerned taking into account the prevailing circumstances and other relevant factors".
Prime Minister said that "we are all committed to the Constitution of India and to uphold it in both letter and spirit".
Below is the full text of the PM's letter:
I have received your letter, carrying the date 14th August, 2011 and carefully read its contents.
Your grievance that the police has given you permission to protest and go on fast at JP Park only for three days needs to be addressed by the statutory authorities who have taken that decision. My Office does not in any way get involved in the decision making process. The terms and conditions on which you are entitled to carry on with your protest are decided by the statutory authorities concerned taking into account the prevailing circumstances and other relevant factors.
I would request you to address your grievances to the statutory authorities concerned.
We are all committed to the Constitution of India and to uphold it both in letter and spirit.
