Jan Lokpal: Support grows for Anna in Rae Bareli and Amethi

If the referendum on Jan Lokpal conducted by Anna Hazare's team is to be believed, 95 per cent people living in Rae Bareli and 90 per cent in Amethi have said they will cast their vote against those MPs who didn't support the Bill. Interestingly, Rae Bareli is the parliamentary constituency of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi while Amethi is party general secretary Rahul Gandhi's constituency.

Though the popular belief is that the mother-son duo is comfortable in these constituencies, the survey conducted by the India Against Corruption (IAC) claims otherwise. It had distributed 10,000 forms in Amethi and 7,000 in Rae Bareli and sought people's opinion whether they would vote for their MPs if they don't support Hazare's Jan Lokpal Bill.

In BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi's Varanasi constituency, 90 per cent expressed solidarity with Hazare's anti-graft bill.
