NEW DELHI: Politicians engaged in a fierce debate with Team Anna over the proposed institution of Lokpal may not have noticed it, but a mammoth anticorruption campaign for a strong Lokpal has been gaining momentum online.

We are talking about the campaign, Act Against Corruption, which we launched on a few weeks ago for a "strong Lokpal". More than one lakh people have joined the campaign. The number is growing as the campaign continues. As a measure of public sentiment, the number is huge indeed, considering that online polls and surveys typically attract only a couple of thousand participants. Even product research, research for TV advertising and election forecasts are based on surveys of not more than a few thousand people. Other than the campaign, carried out a poll in which more than 23,000 people participated. An overwhelming number of respondents said they wanted the PM, the judiciary and MPs under the purview of the Lokpal. The results of the poll were carried in Thursday's edition.

A large number of those who have joined this online campaign have also posted their comments on our campaign page, backing Anna Hazare's demand that the Prime Minister and the judiciary be brought under the purview of the Lokpal.
