Anna Hazare's campaign's have been barely been receiving any response. Most of those present for the campaign include members from India Against Corruption (IAC). Even so, he will be visiting states across the country for the next one and a half years to spread awareness about the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"Our struggle does not end with the Jan Lokpal issue. The struggle for Right to reject and Right to recall was still on. Before the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, around six crore people have to be made aware of it,"he had said in Lucknow.

Recently, during his campaign, Hazare said that he would garner the support of 6 crore people by next year to prepare for "dislodging the UPA Government if it failed to bring forward a strong Lokpal Bill.

"This Bill can curb 90 per cent corruption along with legislation of right to recall and reject," he said.
