Anna to stir up support for Lokpal Bill with online quiz

Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Aug 1: Anna Hazare has taken up an effective method to gain public support over the Lokpal Bill. The Anna Hazare team has taken its referendum on the Lokpal bill online to mobilize support and create awareness.

"We have hosted an online questionnaire to mobilize support for the Jan Lokpal Bill. The main aim is to create awareness among people,'' activist Arvind Kejriwal said.

The Anna Team is still worried about their upcoming hunger strike on August 16 over the "dissatisfied" and "fractured" draft following the police's denial to hold protest at Jantar Mantar.

Responding to the police's concerns, Hazare said, "If you don't let us protest at Jantar Mantar, then tell us another suitable place. If there is some good place where there are facilities for all the people who join the protest, then we have no problems. The issue is that corruption needs to be rooted out. We are not worried about the venue."

Delhi Police suggested Anna to look for an alternative site in the city's outskirts like Burari in north Delhi or Ajmal Khan Park in west Delhi if he wanted to go ahead with his protest for more than a day.

The group is expected to meet on Tuesday, Aug 2 to decide on a plan of action which could mean courting arrest at Jantar Mantar, holding the protest at an alternative venue or even approaching the courts for protection.
