Congress decries Anna plan to campaign
Commenting on the issue, Congress General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi said Hazare should have faith in the `collective wisdom` of the nation, which is represented by Parliament, on the Lokpal issue."Hazare should keep faith in the country`s collective wisdom represented by the Parliament of the country. Whenever the Lokpal comes, it will be a strong and effective one. Having any pre-conceived notions on the issue is not correct," he said. Dwivedi said, Congress trusts Anna Hazare when he says that he does not have any personal political ambitions and that is why `he should not allow the issue raised by him with good intentions to be misused for political reasons.`
The Congress spokespersons were reacting to Hazare`s statement that he will appeal to voters in Hisar Lok Sabha constituency in Haryana, where bypoll is scheduled on October 13, to not to vote for the Congress candidate as the party was `deliberately` not bringing the Jan Lokpal bill.
