The official twitter handle of India Against Corruption (IAC) as well as its official Web site today put a poser to the public asking “should Annaji provide a political alternative to the country? Reply YES or NO to this tweet?”

It also tweeted a link which goes to an Internet page which put up two questions — Do you have any hope from the existing political parties and Should Annaji provide a political alternative to the country?

The poser came on the ninth day of the indefinite fast by Arvind Kejriwal and two others and the fifth day of Anna Hazare and government showing no signs of negotiating with the protesters.

Team Anna had on July 31 appeared set to oppose UPA in the next Lok Sabha elections, saying its mission is to ensure that “new and apt people” come to power in the 2014 polls.

“This mission will not stop till the 2014 elections, till the time new and apt people come in power. We have to go till end which is 2014 when people with Anna’s blessings will come to power. Till then, our responsibility is to spread these words,” Bedi had said.
