Will Team Anna make an impact on poll results?

GN Bureau | January 23, 2012



Team Anna is back on the campaign trail. They went political in the Hisar assembly by-poll last year, but later there was a brief break. Now they have been campaigning in Punjab and Uttarakhand, and have written letters to leaders of various parties in Uttar Pradesh – asking them to clarify their stand not only the vexed Lokpal bill, but also on other political matters.

While in Hisar, the political situation was such that the election results would have been the same even without Team Anna’s campaign. Will they succeed in making an impact after a political campaign across state level? Will their political intervention take the anti-corruption fight further?
