‘Will oppose parties who are not with Jan Lokpal’
Hisar: Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Friday
said they will oppose all those parties, which do not support
the Jan Lokpal Bill, in elections anywhere in the country.
"All parties are equal for us but whosoever opposes Jan
Lokpal Bill will face our opposition during elections anywhere
in the country," Kejriwal said at a function here.
He appealed to the electorate of Hisar Lok Sabha
constituency to get a pledge in writing from candidates, who
are in fray for the October 13 by-poll, and their party
presidents that they would support the Jan Lokpal Bill.
Kejriwal said a campaign will be launched against
candidates whose high command does not give such an
undertaking by September 30.
"We want that the people should have the right to reject
the candidates during polling and if the performance of the
elected candidate does not satisfy people they may have
the right to recall him," he said.
Kejriwal said, "People are supreme in the country not
Parliament. Seven MPs are in jails for their crimes and
"The government issues notices to us out of vendetta," he
said, adding that the recent agitation spearheaded by Anna
Hazare has brought "revolutionary changes in the country
and we have to do much more further".
Indian National Lok Dal general secretary Ajay Chautala
and Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC)-BJP alliance candidate
Kuldeep Bishnoi have already started their campaign whereas
the Congress is yet to announce its candidate for the seat.
