    Breaking news is that Anna has disbanded his team and is looking for political alternative.
    Says no talks with government.
    This is a developing story. No links.

    I truly respect Anna Hazare. I really appreciate his intention of taking on corruption. I will always support his effort but not to his political party. As far as Team Anna is concerned, I've been slightly sceptical about. Group consists supporter of Maoist/Kashmir separatist with left leaning. Not my cup of tea.

    Congress estimate is Team Anna will split Anti-Congress vote in Urban India which will translate into 25-35 loss of seats for BJP. So, eventually TA party is loss for BJP until Anti-Incumbency is so strong that everyone will win but Congress which i doubt thanks to Congress loyalist support-base and populist scheme / subsidies before election.

    Good new for those who hate RSS but at the same time don't like Congress either. Now, they have alternative i.e. 3rd national party. Now, They can support Team Anna in 2014 and hope for the best. :)

    So we are getting most latest version on Mahatma.

    People will use his name to get elected in LS polls.

    Once become MP. Than enjoy the rest and stay care-free for ever.

    To win election, The most important thing is Grass-root organisation.

    How Team Anna is going to establish ground-root organisations? It will take at least 1-2 decades.

    BJP has support of RSS and it's 125 sister organisation with 50,000+ Shakhas/offices with few 10's of million permanent cadres. Congress also has around 50,000+ offices with 10's millions party worker.

    Also, Lots of money is needed for campaign. Even a polling agent will not work without money. In every constituency, One candidate needs at least 3,000 polling booth agents, 10,000+ workers for door-2-door campaign, To give voting-slip to voters 1-2 day before election, Distribution of pamphlets, etc.

    How he will find 543 honest and rich candidates ?

    Buddy, you are right, but the thing which concern me more is--- what will happened to the anti-corruption movement?

    Once you start enjoying the test of power, after that......we all knows what happens.

    At best they will 4-5 seats.

    Anna will fall into the dirty game. Many who will join his party will be the ones who cannot get a ticket in other parties and hope they win by using Anna's name. These guys will be the corrupt lot. How will Anna face the people then?

    Enjoying power itself is a big achievement. It's not that easy.

    Today, There are around 200 political parties. How many of these parties won even 10% seats in last 65 years ? Only 3. Congress, BJP and JD (in 80's and 90's)

    If you win 20-30 seats, Which party you are going to support ?? Congress or BJP or Mulayam or Mamta ?

    What does it matter if you win 20 or 30 seats when 272 is what matters at end ? 250 MP's are not going to support TA with 25 MP's but it's opposite and Hence, Chapter closed!

    BTW, Both BJP and Congress has infiltrated Team Anna.

    How many members of TA are honest like Anna ? How many Anna like members are there throughout the country who are there in TA or wish to join it ? How can people trust such local TA members that they will not act corruptly ? Lots of questions are there to be answered !

    TA has lost its credibility by suddenly ending their protest to join the politics. TA is not a big challenge to political parties in 2014 , but may become in the future.

    One more thing Anna will probably take his last breath in the next 8-15 years , so chances are really minimal.

    The main aim of Team Anna entering into politics is to eat in to BJP votes. I am not saying that Team anna intended to do that on purpose. but congress shrewdly kept pin pointing that if u want to change the system enter in politics, as they knew its very bad scenario for them in 2014. The only chance they have is to keep BJP at bay by hook or by crook. Team Anna unwittingly taken the bait. some of the TA members had nursed a hidden ambition to be in politics.

    I predict that post polls in 2014, BJP and team Anna will form a coalition.

    As long as they don't make stupid 1970s swadeshi-type economic policies, and as long as they don't make dumb statements about prohibition of alcohol and all, I am fine with that combination.

    Any party can contest 543 seats irrespective of "national political party" status. It may fail at end but can damage other parties.

    IMO, Anna has it's own support base and it is negative for BJP.

    Those who hate Congress and will vote to BJP due to TINA factor in 10-15 states may or may not support to BJP in 2014. Even 3%-5% split will make difference on 25-35 seats. Congress is delighted and that's why there are so much coverage on it's paid media. BJP is yet to counter such move.

    To fight 543 seats they will need that much of money. I dont know the procedure but i guess they have to fill deposit in election commission. plus money for campaigning. etc. etc..

    In 2009, Congress won 7 out of 7 seats in Delhi. This time, I was expecting BJP to win all 7 seats. But now i am not sure. Team Anna has maximum support-base in Delhi.

    There is one more problem, Muslims are not supporting Team Anna. :rolleyes:
