As Anna Hazare threatened to campaign against Congress on the Lokpal issue, union law minister Salman Khurshid today said the government will bring the anti-corruption bill in Parliament's winter session.

Reacting to Hazare's plan to campaign against Congress for the coming Assembly elections, Khurshid said he was not going to comment on anybody's views about what should happen in the next election.

"It is their decision. Every citizen is free to vote for anybody. Congress will only do its work, perform its duties and Congress will then go back to people when the duty is performed.

"Let the people judge. We have said that in the next session we are bringing not just this one bill (Lokpal) but many other bills as well," he said.

In Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra, Hazare today put the Congress on notice on the Lokpal issue, saying he will campaign against it in election-bound states if the Centre fails to get his version of the anti-corruption bill passed in the Parliament's winter session.
