India Against Corruption (IAC) leader and social activist Anna Hazare’s close associate Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday that they would oppose all those parties, which do not support the Jan Lokpal Bill, in elections anywhere in the country.

Speaking at a public meeting organised by the IAC here, Kejriwal said: “All parties are equal for us. But whosoever opposes the Jan Lokpal Bill anywhere in India will face our opposition during the elections. If the candidates in fray for the election give in writing that they would support the Jan Lokpal Bill, voters may vote for the best among them,” said Kejriwal.

He urged voters to launch a campaign against candidates whose parties do not give such an undertaking by September 30. The Hisar Lok Sabha bypoll is scheduled for October 13.

Meanwhile, setting speculations to rest, Congress on Friday evening announced the candidature of three-time member of parliament Jai Prakash for the Hisar Lok Sabha by-election.
