Barabanki: Team Anna members Thursday began
their Uttar Pradesh tour with a fervent appeal to voters to understand the strength of their franchise and cast their ballots in favour of honest and responsible candidates.
Manoj Sisodiya and Kiran Bedi while talking to people at
the Shakitdham Mahadev in Fatehpur area here said leaders
coming to them for seeking votes should be asked as to when
the Lokpal bill would be passed.
Bedi asked voters to understand the price of their votes
and not waste them on considerations of caste, religion, money
She also asked the people to take a vow that they will not
back candidates making false promises but support those who
are answerable to them in future.
On various promises made in election manifestos of
different parties, she said people should also see affidavits
filed by their candidates and if they betray them later on
they should be dragged to the court.
Sisodiya said leaders talking about temple and mosque do
not talk about Jan Lokpal bill and asked people not to believe
He said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi speaks about changing
the picture of the state in five years and is learning
politics from Union minister Beni Prasad Verma. "How can
people who make such promises be believed," he asked.
