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 corruption."

"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.
