Team Anna members Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejrival and Prashant Bhushan visited Bhaghpat in UP in support of the RTI activist Manoj Verma, who was attacked recently. Team Anna has made its main agenda of campaigning is to create awareness among the voters regarding choosing the right candidate. Before Team decided to launch Anti-Congress campaign but due to recent political changes and incidences they changed their agenda and made it more focused on citizen awareness about elections.

Team Anna member Arvind Kejrival while addressing a gathering said that, “Congress brought a weak Lokpal Bill; BSP and SP staged a walkout instead of voting against the bill. Though the BJP has brought a good Lokayukta bill in Uttrakhand state but has done nothing in other states where it is power”. They asked citizens to be “masters” of politicians.

Team Anna has asked the people to first know the stand of the candidate on Lokpal Bill for whom they are voting for. Though Team Anna will launch its campaign in UP from 3 February.
