By The Assam Tribune

RALEGAN SIDDHI, Sept 11 � Charting out the next phase of action, anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare today asked people to stage a peaceful dharna in front of the houses of the MPs, who would oppose the Jan Lokpal Bill during the course of discussion in the Parliament, reports PTI.

Hazare also urged the people not to elect MPs, who are opposed to the Jan Lokpal Bill in the next elections.

�Watch the MPs on television and note those, who have opposed the Jan Lokpal Bill and later gherao their houses chanting bhajans in a non-violent protest,� he said after a two-day meeting of the core committee of his anti-corruption movement, which concluded today.

�The government Lokpal draft was fraudulent. Corruption would increase if a legislation is passed on the basis of Government�s draft,� Hazare said.

Reiterating his resolve to continue his fight till the passing of the Jan Lokpal Bill, the Gandhian said he would embark on a nationwide tour next month to campaign for the cause.

Arvind Kejriwal, a key member of the core group, told reporters that the meeting had decided to hold a referendum in the constituencies of important leaders of all political parties and the MPs on Standing Committee, raising the question, whether the people should vote for MPs opposed to the Jan Lokpal Bill.

The referendum would seek Yes or No to the poser, he added.

Briefing the media after the core committee meeting, Kejriwal said Anna Hazare would also take out a �yatra� in the states, where the next Assembly elections are due and people would be informed about the stand taken by various parties on the issue of Jan Lokpal Bill, leaving it to their discretion as to for whom they should vote.
