New Delhi: As Team Anna decides to enter politics, its supporters have been giving mixed reactions. While Anna Hazare said he will stay out of it, his supporters say they want a revolution and not another political party.
"I'm against this decision. Anna should take it back. This is a movement and should remain that way," one of the supporters said. "I've come from Jaipur to request Anna to take the path of a revolution and not party politics," another supporter added.
Anna Hazare's supporters feel it is not right to end the movement. " It is wrong to end this movement. This revolution will die down if we form a political party now," a supporter said.
Nine days after their fast, the anti-corruption activists, members of Team Anna, will end their agitation on Friday. This comes after Team Anna made a dramatic announcement of giving the country a political alternative.
As the government refused to budge, hopes of an encore of Ramlila Maidan, when union ministers were forced to come and appeal to Anna Hazare to call off his fast, faded away. So it took an appeal by two dozen eminent citizens for Team Anna to change track.
