Congress dares Hazare to contest from Chandni Chowk

Monday August 01, 2011 11:12:53 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Congress Monday dared social activist Anna Hazare to contest from Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency here after the civil society released findings of a survey which said 85 percent people there favoured their version of the Lokpal bill.

"I have heard about his survey... Lok Sabha polls will be held in 2014. (Hazare) can contest from Chandni Chowk. Truth will come out clearly," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters.

Replying to questions on the findings of the survey, Tewari said that whether it is a survey or not, there cannot be tinkering with the structure of the constitution.

Hazare's team carried out a survey on Lokpal bill in Chandani Chowk represented by Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, saying the survey had been done in Sibal's constituency as he was "the government face of Lokpal bill".

Arvind Kejriwal, a member of Team Hazare, Monday said initial results of the opinion poll showed that 85 percent people favoured the Jan Lokpal bill.

Tewari said Hazare and his friends should have "faith in the wisdom and discretion of Parliament" once the government places the Lokpal Bill in the House.
