Acting on Team Anna's appeal, people in various parts of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday evening held demonstrations in front of their respective MPs' houses in favour of a strong anti-corruption Lokpal Bill.

Under the banner of India Against Corruption (IAC), people from various walks of life staged sit-ins in front of MPs' houses in Lucknow, Unnao, Kanpur, Faizabad and Allahabad.
