Changing his stand, Anna Hazare today said he will campaign against the Congress in five poll-bound states if the UPA government fails to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill in the winter session of Parliament.
“Let anybody say anything. I will campaign against those who did not bring the Bill. I will go and campaign and say do not give vote to the Congress if the Bill is not passed in the winter session of Parliament,” he said addressing a press conference shortly after breaking his 19-day 'vow of silence' at Rajghat.
Hazare said if the Bill was not passed, he would fast for three days and then go on a nation-wide tour.
Asked if he would campaign against the BJP, he said he will not campaign for the party. “I won't campaign for the BJP. There is no difference between Congress and the BJP,” he said.
However, Hazare praised Uttarakhand Chief Minister B C Khanduri for bringing a strong Lokayukta Bill and said he would honour the chief minister here for his “bold step”.
