Lucknow: In order to increase pressure on the members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee that is looking into the Lokpal Bill, Team Anna is all set to conduct a referendum over Jan Lokpal Bill in the constituencies of the Standing Committee members.

It is believed that Anna Hazare would also participate in the campaign which would start on October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti). In the first phase, seven districts of Uttar Pradesh would be covered.

By holding campaigns in the constituency of high-profile politicians, the people would be urged not to vote for the leaders who are against the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Sanjay Singh, member of India Against Corruption, said, “During the campaign in Rae Bareilly, Amethi, Varanasi, Ghaziabad, Ambedkar Nagar, Mainpuri and Lucknow, members of Team Anna Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas would be accompanied by state coordination member.”

Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal during the campaign would cover Lucknow, Varanasi, Allahabad and would also meet students of Aligarh Muslim University, where he would guide the students to elect deserving candidates in student union elections.
