Premature to form political party: Manish SisodiaAugust 3rd, 2012 - 2:31 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 3 (IANS) Team Anna member Manish Sisodia Friday said it would be premature to form a political party and that the public will decide the path of the movement from the streets to parliament.
“Right now it’s premature to say about forming a political party. We will have to give a political alternative and it will come out from the public. The public will decide how the movement, which began on the streets, should reach the parliament,” Sisodia said.
Anna Hazare and his team members Thursday decided to call off their fast for stringent Jan Lokpal bill Friday afternoon and give “political alternative” to the people.
“Will that be done by forming a political party or through individuals or by any other means, we need to hold discussions regarding that. People are sending their views. But the bottom line is to take this movement from the streets to the parliament,” Sisodia said.
“It has become the nature of various governments - whether at the centre or in the states - not to pay heed to the concerns of the public. So, we had to arrive at a conclusion,” he added.
Arvind Kejriwal, Gopal Rai and Sisodia had sat on an indefinite fast July 25 which was joined by Hazare July 29. They will end their fast Friday at 5 p.m.
