Adressing voters at Adampur on Monday Kiran Bedi hit out at the Congress party and said, "Congress intends to pass a weak Jan Lokpal bill and is trying to dilute the provisions."

She said, "The govt does not want the probing agencies to become stronger, so that the corrupt leaders may escape the law. A strong Jan Lokpal would be able to send corrupt leaders and officers to jails. Our main aim is to free the country from corruption and get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed."

She reminded the voters that huge amounts are being stashed by the leaders who are looting the nation. She said that people have not been getting justice for decades.

Team Anna Hazare activist Arvind Kejriwal said the by-election was very important and the voters should teach the corrupt Congress leaders a lesson.

He said, "We have to bring back our money from the foreign banks and get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed. The intention and action of Congress is not transparent because they know that after implementation (of the) Jan Lokpal Bill many of them would land in jails.

"The voters of Hisar Loksabha seat have the great responsibility on their shoulders now, as they have to show the path to the nation."
The Anna team addressed public meetings at Arya Nagar, Adampur , Balsmand and Hansi today. Gopal Rai and Manish Sisodia also appealed to the voters to give defeat the Congress and elect any other candidate they thought fit.

Monday is the last day of Team Anna's campaign in Hisar parliamentary constituency.
