As many as 85 per cent people in Chandni Chowk, communications minister Kapil Sibal’s constituency in Delhi, are in favour of the civil society’s version of the anti-corruption Lokpal Bill, social activist Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday.
Kejriwal shared the interim results of an opinion poll held in Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi. A questionnaire along with a chart detailing the government and the civil society’s versions of the Lokpal Bill was distributed from door-to-door, he said at a press conference. “We have scanned 72,000 applications and the results are overwhelming; 85 per cent people in Kapil Sibal’s constituency said that they were in favour of the Jan Lokpal Bill,” Kejriwal said.
The draft Lokpal Bill was approved by the Cabinet July 28 amid vehement protests by the civil society which said that key clauses which have they have been demanding for, have been left out. The questionnaire had eight questions in all.

I am not sure that this kind of exercise would yield any positive results in terms of building consensus among the political parties and the MPs who would ultimately decide the fate of Lok Pal Bill in Parliament!
