8 out of 48 people who didn't want to form a political party left. Anna first agreed and then left.

What option did they have except forming a party anyway?

If you are into habit of looking into track records, which a "warren" do normally - look at their life-long work.
And sorry, Anna's fans were never kids - That's why he failed in Mumbai. His fans are villagers and and the real poor people in his village and district. you are undermining life-time effort and hard work of Anna by "kids and white collar guys" statement. What AK tried to do was to channelize Anna's popularity into a mass movement, you can question his methods, but that's what the congress of pre-independence India did with Gandhi.
And there is nothing called leftist policy in Indian politics - BJP was as leftist as other leftists before coming in power - and when in power they were as right as anyone else.
If you start looking for perfection at the first place itself, neither Gandhi or Martin Luther King would have succeeded.
That's not factually correct. Congress has mostly followed leftist policies - a bloated omnipresent mai-baap sarkar. Nehru's economic policies were leftists, Indira Gandhi's license-quota-permit raaj was leftist.
If you are talking of contemporary politics, congress policies are still largely leftist (notwithstanding recent FDI decisions) - reckless subsidies, a welfare govt, too much stranglehold over business.

Yeah, plus Rahul Gandhi has shown even more leftist inkling than MMS.

BJP itself is now going into more leftist mode in terms of economic policies now and letting the nationalist in their party take over from reformers.
