Team Anna on Saturday launched a blistering attack on the Congress ahead of the October 13 Lok Sabha by-poll in Hisar, Haryana, asking voters to inflict a "historic" defeat on the party for not getting the Jan Lokpal Bill passed.

While addressing a public meeting, activists Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia also sought to clear the air on any links with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

Kejriwal said Hazare had twice sat on a fast for the Jan Lokpal Bill but the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government was yet to bring it to Parliament.

Appealing to voters, Team Anna member Sisodia said, "Vote for any party, but don't vote for the Congress."

He said he had asked youths to fan out in villages and distribute Anna's CDs.

On Friday, Hazare issued an appeal to the electorate through a CD, asking them to defeat Congress in the by-poll.

Kejriwal and Sisodia will camp in Hisar for the next three days while activist Kiran Bedi will visit the place on Monday.
