Team Anna begin campaign in UP on Lokpal bill issue on Thursday

Ahead of Uttar pradesh assembly polls, Team Anna will begin its campaign from Thursday on the Lokpal bill, pressing various political parties to make clear their stand on the issue. In a statement released on Wednesday, the activists said they will hold meetings in Mahadev Talab Maidan in Fathepur of Barabanki and in Ramlila Maidan in Gonda on Thursday.

Team Anna has claimed that they will not target any single party during the campaign but put forward the need for a strong Lokpal. Anna Hazare and his team had shot off a series of letters to leaders, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi and BJP president Nitin Gadkari, last week trying to put them on the mat on the Lokpal issue ahead of assembly polls in five states.
