Anna Hazare not being fair by singling congress out of Lokpal: Rashid Alvi.

Rohit Dhyani:  Congress rubbishes Anna Hazare’s threat of campaigning against party during upcoming Assembly elections.

Congress leaders hit back on Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare by saying that he and his team will campaign against the party during upcoming Assembly elections, if the center failed to introduce the Jan Lokapal bill in winter session.

Party spokesperson Rashid Alvi said "This is unfortunate, whatever Annaji is saying. Every citizen has right to oppose or support anyone. His statement proves that he is starting to oppose the Congress from Hisar by-election when the winter session is far away”."The BJP, RSS and the Shiv Sena are opposing the Congress... and now Anna is also doing that."he added.

Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid however said the government was going to bring in a number of bills in Parliament and Lokpal Bill was one of those. He said the government did not bother if anybody was targeting it as it was doing its job.
