Is there a communal angle to Anna Hazare upsurge?

RSS combine’s appeal is to the particular sections of society who are not very appreciative of affirmative action of state, reservations, social welfare schemes, Mahatma Gandhi NAREGA and the like. This class is becoming stronger in number during last few decades. With BJP support base going up due to Anna movement, it becomes clearer as to who has been working behind the scene to create the upsurge around Anna!   »

New Delhi: In the wake of the Anna Hazare campaign against corruption, as many as 74 percent of respondents say they are dissatisfied with the Congress-led government, says a survey.

This is a 13 percent increase over the early August figure of 61 percent, says the LensOnNews opinion poll carried out in the first week of September.

Respondents faulted the government on multiple fronts including inflation, corruption and failure to check Maoist and Jehadi violence.

According to the survey, 84 percent voiced support for the Jan Lokpal Bill of Hazare, thinking it can potentially be a large step in the nation's efforts to control corruption.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh enjoys a relatively better support base compared to his government, with 66 percent saying they were dissatisfied with his performance.

"The difference is explained by the fact that the brunt of the public ire for the arrogance and incompetence of the government was borne by cabinet ministers such as P. Chidambaram and Kapil Sibal," the survey said.

The September round of the LensOnNews monthly tracking poll was carried out among 2,064 voters in 13 cities, including the four metros, between Sep 1 and 6. The findings are subject to a margin of error of 4 percent.
