Why supporting Anna Hazare is a bad idea?

Alright. This is my opinion. If you are a die hard fan of Anna, you can save the time by not reading this and instead light a candle.

1. The current government is elected by us. Now who elected Anna? What makes everyone think he can decide on civil society? Who appointed Anna as the sole custodian of civil society?
2. Why would someone so serious against corruption, plan for a 30 day fast? Will fasting for 30 days resolve corruption? Why not for 1 day? Or 300 days? And if you look at all his activities, they are perfectly suited for 247 news channels. Barkha Dutt talking about anti corruption is the biggest joke of the decade.
3. Basic assumption of Anna is that 542 parliamentarians are corrupt whereas every single Indian is pure and believes everything that is white is milk. This is a totally flawed logic to build your anti corruption campaign on.
4. Who does Anna report to? Who will review what he does? Do public get a chance to review his work?
5. A Raja, a former minister, Kanimozhi daughter of a powerful man, Kalmadi yet another powerful man. All of them are in Jail. JJ is facing a hearing in Bangalore shortly for a case against her. Yeddy has stepped down and he is going to be questioned now. Except for Gandhi family, which corrupt politician has escaped the clutches of law? Now what will Lokpal achieve?
6. Will it not set a wrong precedent? Tomorrow can all service providers protest for a paypal bill and take the country by ransom?
7. I see people telling TV cameras that they have bunked work or college or school to support Anna. Integrity anyone? Do you trust such people to come up with anything useful?

Finally

8. Baba Ramdev also protested against corruption right? So what special qualities or superpowers Anna has over Baba?

Anna has planned really well to get a nobel prize or some award and get his name etched on history books for ever. Well played.

  1. I agree to your views. Somehow Anna hazare has become a phenomenon and if you dont support him it seems like you are against corruption.

    We need a lokpal bill and everything can evolve and we need a start.
    I dont see the point why ppl or so call civil society are so impatient to table GOVT bill and then work on modifications in subsequent years. It seems to be that everyone wants a PERFECT lokpal bill.

    I saw an video abt kapil sibal’s views on Lokpal in NDTV . There are few things quite valid in his views or GOVT views abt bringing in the PM into Lokpal. With media being irresponsible on most of the times in covering news, imagine a scam being explored or planted by one media channel names PM and claims to hv a prima facie evidence then the entire bandwagon of channels and political parties will ask for PM to exit and which might intern bring down a GOVT by false allegation. Also the day when Dayanidhi maran was merely named in AIRCEL scam , SUNTV stocks tanked in market. So such is the power of media. So bringing PM into LOKPAL media should be responsible in coverage else it will result in stock market crash, financials chaos and instability of nation. There are the points which Media just dont highlight and they repeat like Parrot “PM should be under lokpal” but they are missing the whole idea that most of the officers/MPs are covered.

    Let the cleansing begin from bottom and layer by layer let the pyramid be accountable eventually.

    True everyone has their grey shades and claiming that 540 odd MPs and GOVT officials as corrupt is purely pointing fingers.

    • Friend, I think it’s pretty easy to market a product to you. If you are buying what Kapil Sibal said, I think he has won. I think we all have some rational thinking on ourselves, hence I request you to watch videos that says ‘Why the PM/MPs should be there’ (arvind kejriwal etc) before agreeing on Kapil Sibal’s statements. He also told there’s ZERO loss to the exchequer due to 2G, beleive that as well. Having you guys around, no 2G no CWG, these politicians will be happily carrying out scams till 2000G..

      • Dear Varadharajan,

        I am glad that you come to know that it is easy for you to market hte product to me.

        Like i said earlier, i will stick to my views on PM on being to lokpal doest matter whether he is from BJP or Congress.

        Now with all that is happenign around, you might probably say, PM / govt are taking revengeful action on TEAM ANNA.

        I feel ppl are exploiting a good noble man. Will you claim extra from your employer in terms of reimbursements and later use that extra money for charity? And you call it right?

        What about money pulled into NGO from IAC?

        So my point is, now you might blame me further for standing for corruption but my view is what if ppl dint expose these so called team anna core members? not all are clean, i also wish to cleanse the system but in a proper way.

    • Ramya, Not giving a bribe ? Common man is not Indian Thatha. Middle class ppl are the most pity lot in our country. Do u think u can get away paying no bribe ? When you get a license/register a land/apply for passport,ration card try why don’t you try what you just told.. There are lakhs of ppl who have already tried it n vexed…

      Lighting a candle is not to increase candle sales, it’s a mark of protest…When you said ‘i wont pay bribe’ the govt wont speak. But now when the candles are lit, govt is opening its mouth, or atleast it has to….

      I m not justifying giving bribe, it is indeed a crime equally guilty. Now we have got a chance to correct ourselves

      • Definitely not. We don’t need an Anniyan or an Indian thatha to bring about reforms in the society. It takes much more than lighting candles and protesting to bring about a change against a corrupt institution. If people are willing up to give up so easily, then alas this country doesn’t have much hope left for its future.

        • No one can afford to be hell bent without paying a bribe in RTO/Passport/Register office when his family wants him to bring the daily bread shedding his blood. He doesn’t have the power or strength to fight against them. Nobody wants to bribe, they don’t have an option. Again, I m not justifying it, I am rephrasing what is already pathetic. Why don’t you think about it practically. ? I guess you are aware that RTI has really had a good effect on our current system. Atleast 15% improvement I’d say. And I remember there were same voice like now that were questioning it and what’s the response now ?

  2. Allow me to answer your doubts. Firstly, let me tell you frankly, I am not supporting Anna. Not even Ramdev Baba.

    1. Yep we had elected government. But we didn’t elect them to allow massive galactic level corruption scandals. CWG, 2G to name a few. Inflation has risen beyond usual levels f tolerance. Government we had elected is failing to do the job it was supposed to do. If anything which I said in above sentences is wrong, please enlighten.

    2. No, these fasts and all won’t remove corruption because apart from blood, corruption flows in our system. We have to change ourselves first. But think about it, even if someone is corrupted himself, at least someone is trying to change the existing system. At least this bill, even if we don’t understand it, is trying to create slight, even so small, doubt in the minds of the politician that next time they indulge in some kind of evil act that at least some is watching their moves.

    3. Heh.

    4. There are websites available online which have downloadable PDFs of their Draft of Lokpal bill. You know how to search on Google, don’t you?

    5. At least someone is trying to change the existing system which people can walk over with power and money. Doubting the positive change is a virtue of pessimists.

    6. Heh. Aww.

    7. One cannot get change they want sitting idle and watching news channels and reading and writing blogs. They have to move out to show solidarity.

    Finally

    8. Respect the cause, not the person carrying the cause.

    I hope you get it. Optimism. #YouRemember

  3. AB,

    Truly spoken like an arrogant Anna fan.

    Before advising me on google search I advice you to re read the post. If you think this is the only solution for corruption, then no point talking further. You and other Anna Hazare fans can live in a fantasy world after enjoying a break from work or college after doing a token protest in front of TV cameras.

    You can never support a cause when the motive of the person spearheading the cause is media attention.

    • It’s not a fantasy my friend, it just helping for the better.

      You seem to be a person who doesn’t do anything, at least support for the good stuff whether it is 0.1 paise or 1 crore, just help for the better.

      Nobody expecting to stop corruption at a single point of time but we need something which help us solve the problem gradually and YES Jan Lokpal bill will help us.

      Checkout the one’s who are behind Anna Hazare, not some ordinary person but those person’s who have been affected by the system who have been inside the system like Kiran Bedi (I don’t have to explain who she is, if you donno about her, then sorry), Arvind Kejriwal (Ex Income Tax Officer), Shanti Bhusan (Advocate, not just advocate).

      Don’t you think you can stop corruption, not at a whole but at least you can bring out those who are corrupt.

      I know people will say, if you want to support Anna Hazare then why don’t you stop corrupting the officials (this is normal & everyone who ain’t optimistic like you & who doesn’t worry about spending a penny for getting things done, will obviously suggest this). I agree. As a common man (a normal person who doesn’t have any influence or anything to fight for) you will obviously have to corrupt people until there is a system where that person can report and being safe from the corrupt people.

      BTW, I am very much happy for this post for being a wise-guy, marketing (indirectly) Mr. Anna Hazare and his movements which would definitely educate those people who have never had an idea about Anna Hazare or Jan Lokpal bill or why there are lots of stupid people out there in the streets who is helping.

      I should say a big THANKS.

      BTW, I want to offend you in one point where you say Mr. Anna Hazare wants to get his name in the History – what a bull-shit. Well at first place, do you do some basic stuff before writing or knowing about someone? I know you can’t with Mr. Anna Hazare because you are not in his contact neither you know him very well, but at least you could have done search in “Google” and found about what is his background and what he did for a poor village to become a “model” village for other states. Did you? I doubt if you did you wouldn’t have said this – here you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Hazare
      (NOW DON’T BLAME THAT THIS IS FAKE).

      Please dude, educate yourself before you talk about someone – don’t be foolish & don’t be jealous.

      It looks like you wanted to get some click-views and trying to keep people coming to your blog :D.

      Note:
      I am not opposing your opinion neither I am pushing to you accept or support. I am just telling you that your opinion is wrong and asking you to have some belief.

      Thanks.

      • hey rock ferrari is right… u dont try to be diplomatic
        go through the site u hve mentioned compare him with other nobel people u will understand things better…
        just listen to annas speeches does he speak any thing abt common ppl who r bribing or asking him to not to bribe….
        common man when i read ur 1st half of conversation i was a fan but later u r just ******** furget it
        hey ferrari im with u man ……

      • Oh well about the “model village” crap, that wasn’t what really happened. He worked for the water conservation plant in his village, and jumped up and down when the ground water level rose. Why the ground water level rose was because water from the nearby Kudki Dam percolated and reached that village.
        As for “being a patriot and working for the country”, he came running back to his village after 12 years of service. He did not have a family to look after, nor did he look after his parents. He just wanted the easy life. Anna is not an idealistic man.
        I support the cause, but not this process. It’s utter bullshit. Fasting and candle-marching is not the solution. Get up, stand for an election and manage to get elected. Become a part of the parliament, then put forward your bill in a civilized manner.
        Anna Hazare has been conducting petty fasts and such for a long time, on being paid by politicians.
        Anna’s version of the Lokpal Bill has some serious issues. Wana know your thoughts on this before I continue.
        Peace, mate.

        • Lavanya,
          I am sure, there is nobody here who is concerned about the dancing skills of Anna Hazare. We are concerned about the ability of the current system to deter Corruption. And every man is entitled to his voluntarily retirement and he/she would be the best person to decide on it. I dont know how you call a person ‘running back’, i think you said 12 years not 12 days. Let us assume he ‘ran back to this village’. Btw, have you ever served the country by any means, do you have a slightest idea of what it takes to be in army for 12 years. You better return to India, stay here for sometime, have a look and feel of the country. And then let’s have a healthy debate on this ! Cheerio…

    • Truly spoken like an arrogant Anna fan.
      – Prabhu, I am one of the close followers of your excellent blog. Now, for God’s sake since I am differing from your views please dont call me arrogant, I hope you wont 😛

      Before advising me on google search I advice you to re read the post. If you think this is the only solution for corruption, then no point talking further. You and other Anna Hazare fans can live in a fantasy world after enjoying a break from work or college after doing a token protest in front of TV cameras.

      – Do you think there is any other way to put a bridle ? If so, it’s highly appreciated. In India Against Corruption site people views were gathered and those views which were felt good by the majority were considered. May be you can try there. A man aged 74 yrs sitting without food for more than 5 days is enjoying ? come on, you gotta be kidding mate..And over a lakh protesting all are for camera ?

      You can never support a cause when the motive of the person spearheading the cause is media attention.
      – Do you want him to protest inside locked doors ? How do you expect him to protest. And when there is a protest how do you expect the media to be calm? Media is in Congress’s hand not the civil societies.

  4. Read this link:
    https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=12Fl_3y15HIMe3qofQPuPhp5UoCJHEj8KkpFMOX-cE-s

    Understand for what purpose is he fighting for…………
    as a common man, he has the right to fight against corruption or any activity.

    Well if you think this is just a publicity stunt, you can just back out & continue with your routine life & be a part of corrupt govt. It’s completely your choice.

    & lastly m not a fan of anyone, it is just a fight against corruption led by Anna & we r supporting him for his influential act.

    • I am feeling awkward that ‘if at all’, this jan lokpal is passed and if there are good things arising out of this, then these ppl who accuse this will also be enjoying that which is not fair.. 🙂

  5. Prabhu, I agree with you, except your last statement. You should not insult anybody directly without truly understanding their sentiments. Anna’s way may be wrong, but intentions are good.
    I am sure Anna will never succeed, not even 5%. The people who are following Anna, are just fond of limelight (not generalizing but most of them). Gandhian therapy worked well with Britishers, because they were Gentleman. Indians are shameless, selfish.
    You do not have rights to talk about other person, until you do not have complete information about him. Can you evaluate your work first against Anna?

  6. I’m sure you are about to call me an arrogant Anna fan though I’m not, and think Govt lokpal is better, because you seem to consider anyone with opposing view to be arrogant.

    You assume bad faith on Anna. Why? You have any direct relationship with him and know that or have solid documentary evidence to that effect? If not please stick to criticising ideas (My first para was intentional. :p).

    1. I repeat what Ram Jethmalani said: If you think he is wrong either don’t support him or set up protest opposing him.(will also help govt. understand who has more numbers) Why ask him to be silent? It is his right to protest in whatever peaceful form.

    2. He cannot ask BD to stop talking. you are making a strawman attack.

    3. Agreed.

    4. No review necessary. He is not doing some professional job(govt. or private). He is espousing some idea and as Jethmalani said if people show up for it, govt. may consider adding those ideas. (To put it other way, people are reviewers)

    6. I don’t know how you can equate citizens fasting inside a maidan peacefully(without disturbing people who don’t want to espouse that cause like you) and corporations disrupting public by stopping services? Tell me, how did Anna’s protest impede you or held country by ransom?

    Now don’t tell me someone in some office who has to give you something went to fast and it impeded you. That is the very nature of civil disobedience espoused by Gandhi. Corporations, determined by few directors in board, disrupting is wrong since 5-10 people disturb everyone(hold Nation ransom if you will). But if same thing happens coz majority of citizens decide not to turn up to work then it is the will of people, which is supreme by whose name this very constitution is adopted.

    Which brings us to point no 7. One has N number of paid leaves. What is wrong in using it for peaceful protest? How does that mean he is not having integrity? Won’t he take leave if his relative is ill? If he thinks country is ill and want to protest it is his wish. Unless he marks attendance and then escapes, you have no right to question his integrity. What kind of argument is this?

    5. Exceptions do not become rule. It was either because of one determined powerful person with media attention or sheer stupidity of people in question which led them there in all three instances you point out. Existing laws aren’t enough to prosecute higher echelon. That is why Lokpal was/is necessary (It is not new. It was first introduced decades back by then law minister Shanti Bhushan).

    But Anna’s lokpal goes overboard is a fact I’m not disputing. This govt.’s original lokpal was equally bad, but now stands improved thanks to Anna team’s last protest and subsequent meetings with draft committee. But I joined lot of people in protest against(note the word) govt coz of its high handedness in handling him and not coz I think his version should be adopted. Now that he is released I don’t think I’ll go for candle light vigils in my place or elsewhere.

    If you want to know little history about anti-corruption bills, why lokpal was needed and why Anna’s version is bad see http://pragati.nationalinterest.in/2011/08/jan-lok-pal-is-both-unconstitutional-and-unnecessary/ That is a proper take-down of his bill (and my view too.)

    • Ram Jethmalani – Yuck. Do you know he is the one who is going to fight Yeddys Corruption case — A Black Pot Calling a Kettle Black.

  7. Akilan,

    Two things are getting mixed up here. I am jot supporting the governments high handedness nor am saying what UPA is doing is right. My post just deals with Anna Hazare and his ideologies. Just 1 proof for his inconsistency.

    See what he said about Gujarat government right after his first fast, and how in 2 weeks he retracted it when media did not take kindly to him praising Modi 🙂 And media literally forced him to issue some negative statement on Gujarat.

    Anna Hazare is at the mercy of media to take his agitation forward. So he has to make compromises. Once someone starts making compromises, when will it stop? There are huge chances of media instigating him to get what they want, pull down a government and cause havoc in country.

    Also look at what Anna said about MMS over a period of 4 months. He is so inconsistent. He lacks clarity.

    And finally all Anna fans should realise that not supporting Anna does not mean we support UPA or endorse corruption.

    • Prabhu, he is after all a human being. You can’t just accuse him for being inconsistent without knowing what he actually meant. May he would’ve meant what he actually said.

      My only question to you is -He is 74yrs old…What do you think is Anna doing all this for ? Now for pete’s sake dont say ‘award, nobel prize, padma bushan’ etc…

  8. >>Two things are getting mixed up here. I am jot supporting the governments high handedness nor am saying what UPA is doing is right. My post just deals with Anna Hazare and his ideologies. Just 1 proof for his inconsistency

    That mix-up was only in my last but one para. I apologise if it looked like I accused you as UPA man. 🙂 Otherwise I was replying only to the points you raised. And many of the points questioned not Anna or bill but people’s collective bargaining rights (like taking work off as unethical, confusing corporation block with people’s collective etc).

    >>And finally all Anna fans should realise that not supporting Anna does not mean we support UPA or endorse corruption.
    I have no illusion about that. I’m exactly in the same camp. The article, with which I said I agreed, called Anna’s bill even unconstitutional. I also agreed with you when you said his basic premise itself is wrong.

  9. “Yeddy has stepped down and he is going to be questioned now. Except for Gandhi family, which corrupt politician has escaped the clutches of law? Now what will Lokpal achieve?”

    the irony!!! it was lokayukta that got yeddy right? you ask what lokpal will achieve. the problem is you took very broad brush to paint. don’t burn the house to kill a bug……

    • Well Said, Bharti. And for the rest who don’t know how the D Raja and Kalmadi got arrested, please note that it was Supreme Court which ordered the arrest, Govt was in fact trying to save them.See how much time it took to arrest Kalmadi, when whole world knew that he is the clulprit. What happened to Wikileaks report for top 20 Indians holding swiss bank accounts?They even tried to save Hasan Ali until Supreme Court questioned them. It is Supreme Court which is trying to bring some justice to the entire nation and not the Govt.

  10. Akilan,

    I clearly mentioned people who ‘bunk’. Not people who take leave. Also someone told me that, when politicians convoy can disrupt traffic why cant Anna’s followers? My question is then whats the difference between Anna’s followers and politicians.

    Barathi,

    Request you to read this article from today’s Hindu. Also is Lokayukta going to close down? It was in existence and will be in existence. Who argued against Lokayukta now? Are Anna’s Jan Lokpal bill policies publicly debated? Does it have support of majority? Don’t tell me Arnab, Rajd Sard and lobby fame Barkha decide the majority.

    http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article2370258.ece

    • Prabhu, could you please tell me the point you are trying to make I have just read that. And mate, the more I read your replies, the more I am getting aggressive to hit back at you. Shall I ask you something, you don’t believe even a single word of what Team Anna says, how come you just believe what Congress **** says, and you want to show it off here ?
      Arvind kejriwal told this ages back ‘When our talks end, kapil n pranab ji tell us like this- just tell outside that everything is going smooth and govt is in a very good opinion on this’ though they have not concurred on a single damn thing. you think he lies ?

    • I just read this, friend by any chance have you heard of Right to Information Act. If so, do you any idea of how much it is being used now ? Again I dont know what made you copy-paste this link ?

  11. Lokayukta is equivalent to Lokpal (Lokpal : centre :: Lokayukta : state ) and that is the irony Barathi pointed out. You implicitly argued against Lokayukta by arguing against lokpal, and then showing Yeddy as ‘system working’ example. Irony indeed, that I missed.

    In any case I don’t want to discuss this further after seeing you mention the “interesting article”. It is always the Indian politicians who cannot attack an idea intellectually, hide behind the words like upper caste, lower class, dalith, muslims etc. in the hopes of dividing people and thereby defeating that idea.

    I don’t discuss anything with such people. So let me stop here.

  12. Akilan,

    The article was to point out to many that not everyone is in agreement with Anna. So we need to answer the question ‘Who authorized Anna?’. And not sure from when you are following my blogs, but if you think I am one of the pseudo secular crowd you are mistaken. I don’t agree with the rediff article at many places but I feel that contrary to what media is trying to project, Anna is not supported by everyone and he does not represent civil society.

    And I completely disagree that Lokayukta and Jan Lokpal are one and the same. We need Lokpal. But not what Anna is proposing. Anna Hazare did not design Lokayukta. Is Lokpal the exact replica of Lokayukta? I have major grouses against Anna’s version of Lokpal. Please look at my title again.

    Once again I need to explain painstakingly how supporting Anna is a bad idea. That does not mean I don’t support Lokpal or Lokayukta? Phew! Its going in circles.

    • Prabhu, which version of Lokpal you think would help ?

      Btw, speaking about lokpal n lokyukta..They are for centre n state respy..There is no major diff between the two except that lokpal has the right to prosecute and lokayuktha cannot. Since it has the right to prosecute it has so many sub clauses that’s all !

    • Prabhu, which version of Lokpal you think would help ?

      Btw, speaking about lokpal n lokyukta..They are for centre n state respy..There is no major diff between the two except that lokpal has the right to prosecute and lokayuktha cannot. Since it has the right to prosecute it has so many sub clauses that’s all ! The motive of both are one and the same ….

  13. Mr. Prabhu,

    Even though I too became aloof with Anna AFTER he changed his stand against the Modi Govt. of Gujarat due to SICKulars surrounding him, I do feel that one should give credit where it is due. Anna Hazare is single-handedly responsible for galvanising the general public’s opinion against corruption in society & the Govt’s deliberate inaction to stem/control it. So, in the process, it is natural that he comes under increased media glare & TV channells also are trying to cash-in on the issue which attracts the attention of most post people these days.

    Here are my thoughts on the points raised by you:

    1. The current government is elected by us. Now who elected Anna? What makes everyone think he can decide on civil society? Who appointed Anna as the sole custodian of civil society?

    Your elected Govt. has gifted you with 2G, CWG, and what not scams of the order India has not seen before. So much for your judgment in ‘electing’ such a Govt.

    Why should Anna be “elected”, in order to protest? Anna never calls himself sole custodian of civil society. But the fact remains that Anna is the only one to have the courage & conviction to ‘protest’ against the scourge of corruption in India. After all, he is protesting for “everyone else’s” sake. What you & I are supposed to be doing but not doing for fear or laziness or whatever reason, Anna is doing. Even if we can’t appreciate his efforts, it would be nice if we can refrain from criticizing it unjustifiably.

    2. Why would someone so serious against corruption, plan for a 30 day fast? Will fasting for 30 days resolve corruption? Why not for 1 day? Or 300 days? And if you look at all his activities, they are perfectly suited for 247 news channels. Barkha Dutt talking about anti corruption is the biggest joke of the decade.

    According to you, what anyone so serious against corruption is supposed to do? To do what Rajini did in “Sivaji – The Boss” by employing goondas and spanking all corrupt politicians and babus? You seem to think fasting is very easy. 30 days fasting means a person may not survive at the end. Please don’t trivialise fasting. Hope you remember that without Mr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi resorting to fasting, you & I won’t be chit-chatting like this today.

    We are living today in communication age. Obviously “all activities” which are performed in public will come under media glare, whether one likes it or not. It will be maximum if the person concerned is the darling of the masses, like Anna is. BTB, how come it is Anna’s fault whatever BD does? Let us not mix issues.

    3. Basic assumption of Anna is that 542 parliamentarians are corrupt whereas every single Indian is pure and believes everything that is white is milk. This is a totally flawed logic to build your anti corruption campaign on.

    You seem to be knowing more about the 542 parliamentarians’ moral turpitude much better than Anna, who has been fighting against the system in his village for several decades. Can you please share how many out of these 542 MPs are non-corrupt, according to you? If this is flawed logic, according to you, what should be the ‘correct logic’ to start an anti-corruption campaign?

    4. Who does Anna report to? Who will review what he does? Do public get a chance to review his work?

    Anna protests in public, along with public, and for the benefit of the public. Whatever clauses he and his colleagues want have in Lokpal Act, that is to be finally ratified and passed by both houses of our parliament. So, that is the review & check for Anna.

    5. A Raja, a former minister, Kanimozhi daughter of a powerful man, Kalmadi yet another powerful man. All of them are in Jail. JJ is facing a hearing in Bangalore shortly for a case against her. Yeddy has stepped down and he is going to be questioned now. Except for Gandhi family, which corrupt politician has escaped the clutches of law? Now what will Lokpal achieve?

    The first 2 names you have quoted have gone into jail 3 years after their shenanigans and that too because of the Supreme Court’s intervention. Even to prosecute Raja, Dr. Subramanyam Swamy has to go to court to make the PM reply to his letter. The third name also went into jail only as a last resort & after several months of delays when his arrest can no more be postponed. So much for the “clutches” of the law as it stands today. JJ is having only 1 case pending against her though more than a dozen was swapped against her initially. And when does she come to appear before court – after 13 or 14 years. “Yeddy” stepped down because of a “Lokpal report”, only after he exhausted all his options and only when the BJP was driven into a corner.

    When was Deva Gowda or HDK or Mayawati or Mulayam or Amar Singh caught? You don’t even seem to think they are corrupt. You seem to be living in your own “Ram Rajya”; otherwise, you won’t feel so proud for the present laws & their implementation.

    6. Will it not set a wrong precedent? Tomorrow can all service providers protest for a paypal bill and take the country by ransom?

    First understand that Anna is resorting to a peaceful fast. Not Ramadass type tree-cutting or communists way of Bandh or other political parties way of riots etc. If some other person has any genuine grouse against the system let them also protest if the Govt. is unwilling to listen. That is the hallmark of any democracy – anyone can protest peacefully. But, I challenge, no one else will be able to fast like how Anna does. At the most, they can do a Karunanidhi-type fast a.k.a. “fast-unto-lunch” which people will anyway laugh it off & forget. When a protest does not invoke people’s spontaneous response nobody can force any Govt. to do anything.

    7. I see people telling TV cameras that they have bunked work or college or school to support Anna. Integrity anyone? Do you trust such people to come up with anything useful?

    Are you saying protests have to be organised only on Holidays?

    I can understand one may not agree with Anna & his team for all they do & utter but I don’t think one should fault their intentions. Even if he is a media happy person, so what? After the JP Movement against Emergency in the mid-70s, only now India could find a real man who is not afraid of the establishment & is willing to fight against it in a peaceful manner for the people’s sake. Though I am also frustrated with his eagerness not to lose his SICKular credentials, I think what Anna does is for the good of the nation and its people and it will be suicidal to totally label it as a total waste.

    Thanks,

    Arun

  14. This point got missed out.

    8. Baba Ramdev also protested against corruption right? So what special qualities or superpowers Anna has over Baba?

    Anna never promotes violence. That is a super-duper quality in the present world context.

    Skeptics like you can only do one thing: drive even the peaceful protesters towards violence. You know how? Because of the people like you, Govt. gets into a wrong impression that many people are against Anna and starts doing things which may irritate the massive crowds which converge on Anna’s fast venue. All it takes for the crowd to go berserk is a Manish Tiwari type personal attack on Anna for them to lose their patience and trigger violence. Of course that is what you guys may be intending to somehow achieve to show the world “see, this is why we have been saying so”. Best of Luck.

  15. Fali Nariman, a constitutional expert, says, “Indian Constitution is Supreme, which says, We, The People, are Supreme”. So, before the parliament, before the executive, before the President, comes WE, The People.

  16. “He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her.” I hope most people got it by now. Team Anna is different but those didn’t bribe or didn’t pay tax, or some other things…. Why do they join with Annaji? Annaji is perfect, but people joined by him are not clean hands.

    I recently read a comment about Annaji from one NRI…. saying the same thing what i said above. From India a reply came out “You dont have patriotic with our mother india”… NRI says “I lives in US and pays tax but you people chaet the Govt by not paying taxes or making money illegally. One way or the other way they have done wrong. I strongly believe that people of all category are with Annaji. That way his Team is losing. I advice better to have proper analysis in this case.

    Don’t simply waste your time by arguing… before you comments read and be neutral. Before that first try to understand LOKpal bill.

    Some medias are taking us into wrong direction. For example “90% of the people support/agree Anna’s Bill”. Where do you get this Statistics? Feels Very very funny.

    So far Leaders of opposition party are not involved in any scam? Do you agree? They do support Annaji? After all everybody is to be blamed….

    Develop a better mind.
    I’m nothing but I do want to live for the country and die for it.

    • Anna has no control of those who joins him. He is not forming a party, remember. He is trying to gather people to stop corruption. Why do you guys don’t have a practical view. Is it feasible for someone to sit and analyze who are all good, who are all bad in lakhs n lakhs of crowd joining him, before the govt just seals n passes off the jokepal in the blink of eyes? Wake up mate.. You want to live in a better india, how ? by just rising ur voice against ppl who protest corruption ?

      Pls agree that the system is completely in a mess and something has to done. Imagine that something is this, and if not for this there isn’t a slightest of doubt even in the most insane mind that the system would remain like this ever n forever. You keep cracking jokes of Rajas kanimozhis and kalmadi and they keep looting you in broad daylight….

  17. Mr. Rock.

    Crane Bedi is frustrated becoz of not getting Post of CP of Delhi. Kejriwal pinned too much for CIC . But didnt get. Shanti Bhushan family is rival of Congress since Indira era. They all gatherd becoz of their own frustrations.

    • And to you Mr.Bounce, you seem to know many things that even Manish Tiwary, Abhishek Singvi, Diggie, PC and our PM doesn’t know..If all that you had told were true, then that would have been on the top of all headlines coz almost 90 % of media are mouthpieces of Congress. In the last 2 weeks, they are trying to bring unimagnable stories to existence through all their loyal mouthpieces. I even heard that Anna Hazare is corrupt from ‘head to toe’, but didn’t hear this amazing story. Enlighten me Mate ..

  18. Well no doubt a stern conviction and movement needed against corruption, but why there is corruption, who are corrupt, mmhh every one’s bunny, to point finger to the obivious politicians. mmmm well how comes ther is an environment created where politicians alone corrupt in a democracy where majority of 1.2billion are so right and alwys the victim for sooo long…..

    if you dont see the source of the problem and just bcos of mass ephurio u get carried away, you will never solve the problem,but just make hypocritical statements..

    Now given a free choice of either bribing a traffic cop of facing court trial how many of those who protest in street ( who saying all r bcos of those politicians) will select uncorrupt legal way over quick fix cop bribing, its just exampl.e how many of those proudly claim abt their uncle in police, politicians or frinds father or some one n use them wen they want to to bypass system..? how many of them morally n willfully pay tax unless they r forced at source by their employer, how many of them fakely create doc for saving few 1000 rupess in tax, now dont tell me that its so poultry amount wen compared to mamoth corruption by politicians..well amount and means are based on oppurtunity available to u, but once ur mind is corrupt(meaning ready to do anything to save effort n money n resource of u)u will do corruption of any magnitude its question of opurtunity.. corruption starts from everyone home wen our mom n dad n relativees n onlooker ask u to be smart among crowd n shine well b4 others by any means so all r corrupt their level of corruption varies according to ur oppurtunity.. wen ur employer u do corruption in tax, cops n officials willfully( i know ther r many instance where we r forced to bribe, im not talk abt those, ie wen ur at reciving end of fellow citizen corrupt attitude just as ours)

  19. continuing abv argumet……

    people are alwys willing to point fingers and put up a victim attitude wen it come their turn, all are responsible for corrupt system, as u(common ppl) are forced to bribe at many instance , its worse of govt officials most of them are forced to recive bribe otherwise they can pass any file abv they r assumed to colected money if u know any govt officials u will realise the corrupt system is well abv anyone to make free choice but why its monstrous where its gets strenth just like a giant river’s source is tiny tiny drops n stream we all r collectively sttrengthing n making an environment where corruption has to be their, main reason corruption survives is it eludes us how it works, what eludes us is hypocrisy and pointing finger” its alwys beaurocrat and politicians”, wen all of us colletively pinch baby and point finger to only a section among ourself n ask them to stop, the baby cry wont stop just hypocries will get more boost, which will increase corruption and never sease it, REASON WE FAIL TO SEE SOURCE OF CORRUPTION IS HYPOCRISY( ITS NEVER US, ONLY OTHERS OURS IS SMALL) so those u support the corruption movement n in street are just r feeding only hypocrisy. if every cell in our body is affected with disease first and best thing each cell can do is make sure its not afected, so if those light candle in support of anna hazare rather than making big statement at other(politicians) if they r true to themself n coragious enough to take vow i will never bribe anyone(atleast not in forced situation but wen u have choice)i will never bribe cops wen i have choice, i will never bribe my way to registration or any govt realted stuff(again wen ur not forced) or i never bribe cop i will leave my vehicle m legaly face the situation. now wait u guys might cry” wat!! its so hard, see its my money, my time, im not like those asshole politicians to loot billions, its just my hard earned, my sweat, so ok to save it afterall its mine”see wen it comes to our turn we feel for ourself and this is the point where we force the system to be corrupt cos wen ur giving bribe for ur sake or forgin It tax ther is a offcial or system which requires corrupt ways of things. hence it sustain.

  20. you might says its so hard to avoid bribing, well for u with monthly salary and family to care if its so hard to follow the legal n moral ways( both forced n fere will situations) then imaigne the situation of a govt official or politicians apart from family like u he has n number of other complusion bigger than us(common ppl) if u know any govt official preferably in EB or corporation just follow their work life, u will know how difficult its is for them…. if u cant stop dont ask others to stop first…filth flows among our house only bcos we all r ok with it, if we r vehemently dont want it it wont flow like wise in our daily life if we stop being corrupt among such society and environment, corrupt system will be less dominant as majority r agiasnt it, reson why europen countries r less corrupt is most of them (citzsen) have uncorrupt valaues(relatively) hence politicians and officials cant be more corrupt as collective will is against it.

  21. continue….
    vilonce or non-vilonce is defined not on the action but on the intetion, example, take 2 scenario wher a man is guned down n killed, a robber killin innocent public for money or something(violence), a police or army shoot down that robber n kill is(non-violence) any action which stops prevent violence is nonviolence not gaysing lame(action judged) ways. similarly anyone who does fasting is not gandian ways it depends on the motivation..here a guy forcing the great parlimentary system( dont underestimate the set of beurocrats,politician involved in drafting n sanctioning a bill if u dont know listen to nandan nilekani( infosys co founder, currently taken up corruption reduction with aid of technology)
    http://ibnlive.in.com/videos/176743/annas-protest-unjustified-nandan-nilekani.html

    so standing commitee isnot a joke, laws ntechnicala details need to be handled by experts not those just join the band wagon bitten by mass euphoria of hypocritcal self rigetousness n pointing finger attitude, just bcos ther is a crowd its doen mean its right.

    so anna closing his ears and saying govt has to listen to my way otherwise iw ill fast n die just bcos i have a crowd is not gandian way nor non violence its “adamant stupid kid crying for candy lying on the ground” attitude. u have to accept my ways or else i will fast is violent black mail never ever a gandian way

  22. well many might say” we all know there is coruuption but something need to be done, anna movement is begining” well i doo feel happy abt this mass colective feel agianst corruption, but only differnce is this euporia is motivated by the idea politician r corrupt, if he stops everything will be fine is hypocrisy, which wud justify n eludes the main reason, we who have created the vlues n means for sustaining the environment of corruption,where everyone is required and in some case exploit ruthlessly n earn in billions, it killsss the very purpose, hence if th current protest adress the entire picture, rather than thikiing only a bill a law gonna bring change (meaning politicina r only corrupt) will kill the purpouse instead let them vhemntly take vow i will never seek corrupt way, that will bring majic.

    remeber its never lack of law or any system is corrupt (i didnt mean no more reform required we can bring n number of changes, )but it like a computer system on toll booth can the computer ever be corrupt or can a law be corrupt?, but the person who handles it, he can alwys make a function of the computer to stop n make it behave difernetl,y so its not bill required its conviction among ppl will solve, otherwise we end up feeding hypocrisy and it will elude us the source, n corruption will survive.

    If what im trying to say is soo vague and highly confusing my appologies i tried my best hope to present more clear view, but as most of us undesrstand language of movie better lets take shanker movie anology… reason for govt official corrupt(Indian) is not mainly bos of politicians r corrupt(mudalvan,sivaji) but mainly bcos each and everyone’s value is self centerd n corrupt,common men(Anniyan) among the pool of common men few bcome politicians n officials, all r corrupt only few have more opputunity, hence it seems they r only corrupt.we all r strengthinign it unless we stop, it wont , never!!. We shud have better values in home n schools n society while bringgin up children, one shud be very very responsbile, if we do that in next 15- 20 yrs(next generation) will be less corrupt n more with higher values, its as simple n tiny as rivers birth pace tiny trickles of water if u control there, u can control the river flow but defenetly notat later part of the violent runing river, we will never make it. thank u 🙂

  23. hello!
    first of all do you know anything of lok pal bill?
    why do you think india is still in this condition even after getting inependence before 64 years?
    do you know what problem the rural peoples are facing?
    do you know how many ways are there in our constitution for politicians to escape from punishment?
    dont you think there is a need for constitutional reform?
    you are saying anna is planning for nobel.you know that anna has refused ta accept IIPM’s rabindranath peace award whic also carries 1 crore rupees ?
    do you know why anna didn’t marry because he thout that by marring he can serve one family, but by not marrying he can serve millions of peoples, and he has done that and doing that.
    you say that radev is also doing protest,but you don’t know that he also has black money?
    you know what our govt is doing for us see this-‘if anyone file case against any govt servent and if he found guilty after some years he may get minimum of 6 month jail, but if doesnt then the person who filed case he may get minimum of 2 years of jail,if he sustains untill that point by threatening
    you know why anna is fasting if you think this was a waste then wouldn’t have got independence till now,and you wouldn’t have got states formation.this formation is due to fasting of potty sriramulu for 49 days.this fasting will give our people a kind of motivation for getting patriotism.
    if everyone keeps busy in their work then who do you think should fight against this corruption.
    only some politicians have been cought who doesn’t know how to make money, but many many politicians, officers are escaping.how do get them into gails. there are criminal minded.
    if i keep on writing i think this waste of time by just writing to a person who is not aware of current indian politics, economy, peoples,history(for saying fasting and protesting is waste).
    so first remove the web page by saying sorry to anna hazare.

  24. I have been following ur posts ever since it was two different sites. I think it was way back in 2006 or 2007. I am an ardent fan of all ur posts, ur humour and have literally recommended it to all my friends. But I am really sorry to say, this must have been the most disappointing post you could have ever written! Only throught this post I got a feeling that you penned down this post just for attention..I am sorry again to say this Prabhu…I will be always on to read good posts from you !! Cheers Mate ………….

  25. Anna Hazare is such a pain in the arse.who is he?he is a shame to GANDHI.and yet he is a gandhian…bloody gimme a break.i think sum1 shud stop dis nonsense..dont think he is a gud man

  26. this is all jst for a time , all the bill will come in place …. then no one even cares … back to zero … thats what india is ……………..

    take a history of every case ….

  27. You have asked a rhetorical question: “Why Anna is fasting only for 30 days? Why not 1 day or 300 days fasting?”. Today the news has come out that one Arun Das in Bihar who has been fasting in solidarity with Anna’s cause has died today – the 9th day of fasting. Even as skeptics continue to ridicule Anna’s struggle against corruption without realising that they are indirectly helping the corrupt UPA Govt., there are scores of people across the country who are fasting with Anna and already 1 of them have given his life for the cause. Of course, the fruits of his labour, as and when it happens, can be enjoyed by all – including skeptics like you.

  28. Anna’s bill is easy to understand it shows loyality & transperency abt nation.where as gvt. bill shows ,hame openly currption karne do. gvt.is not ready for that three term bcoz they want to get money from junior employee.goom firke. ye baat hovi ki hame nichese to paisa lene do.

    • With all due respect, have you read Anna’s bill? It has some serious issues. I am not against eradicating corruption; I am against people worshiping one man, against melodramatic ways of getting your way, against blindly following someone saying “Ye toh corruption se fight kar raha hai! Cool, kal candle march organize karte hai.”
      What our nation needs is to take both sides into consideration and reach a conclusion in a civilized way. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. How can you vest immeasurable power in the hands of one agency – the Jan Lokpal? India will become an autocracy then!
      Dr. Ambedkar, who wrote the Indian Constitution, warned everyone in 1949 of the three grave dangers that will bring us down:
      1. Socio-economic disparity
      2. Unconstitutional methods to get one’s way
      3. The worshiping of one body/man/entity.
      Need I say more?

      • Dear Lavanya,
        While I respect the amount of knowledge you possess, I’d like to put forth a simple question. With regards to your last line ‘The worshiping of one body/man/entity’- Do you think this is not happening now ? Atleast forcefully are we not made to tolerate all the turmoil caused to us by one nonsense in the form of Congress ! Well, if you differ I will have to assume that you are a daughter of an ameer politican or a bizman you just returned from the US/UK after your MS 😉 ! Cheers

  29. Prabhu,
    You post is so tiring. I was not planning to write, but I got this blog post sent to me, by many people.
    Your questions are like Periyar’s followers questions about god. They think they have found a loophole by a simple question and pat their back.
    Please take a time to think, to reflect on whatever you read, think in a historical perspective. Think about what people say consciously, and not do a psycho analysis.

    Just like how people are responding to your questions. I challenge you to open each point in the janlokpal and try finding fault in that. Your arrogance + ignorance is such a deadly combo.

    1. The current government is elected by us. Now who elected Anna? What makes everyone think he can decide on civil society? Who appointed Anna as the sole custodian of civil society?
    > No one need to elect a citizen. It is a fundamental right of a citizen in a democracy to question their leaders. Leaders get a mandate from the people and people can take that if they want.
    People in USA are not better than people in India in terms of being moral. It is how leaders operate and what sort of environment is present.
    For instance, biharis under lallu and biharis under Nitish is a good example.
    No one appointed Anna. You and I have the same power. You are not choosing to excercise, he has. That is the only difference. And everyone like myself, who is willing but does not have time and cirumstance are happy that someone else is doing the stuff for me. In a democracy we dont need to wait for 5 years keeping our thumb in our mouth, before calling for a change. It is urgent need of the hour.
    Have you ever gotten a license, birth / death certificate/ done anything to do with govt. Are you proud about being in a position where bribing someone is the norm.
    if you are, then erase my answers.

    2. Why would someone so serious against corruption, plan for a 30 day fast? Will fasting for 30 days resolve corruption? Why not for 1 day? Or 300 days? And if you look at all his activities, they are perfectly suited for 247 news channels. Barkha Dutt talking about anti corruption is the biggest joke of the decade.
    > this is basic. It takes persistence to get the jokers to listen. Jokers like you and me and the politicians to give a ear.
    What is wrong about using 247 news channels. The terrorists are using guns, the indian army is using guns, but that does not make both criminals. You have to have some set of premises in order to apply logic. otherwise it is all one nasty joke. So, let me know what are your premises.
    Btw, who the hell voted you to represent the non-believer of Anna. Why the hell did you type > 500 words. Is that for fame?
    3. Basic assumption of Anna is that 542 parliamentarians are corrupt whereas every single Indian is pure and believes everything that is white is milk. This is a totally flawed logic to build your anti corruption campaign on.
    > no that is not the assumption.
    Assumption is that 542 persons in power has the power to change things but are being mum encouraging a stupid system. The other billion are apathetic to this whole tamasha are going with the flow. The fight is not against govt. It is against public apathy. Corruption is a symptom of lack of self-goverance, quote from Arvind Kejriwal.
    So, wake up my friend. And start looking deep and avoid such shallow comments. Normally I dont care. But in this case, It is hurting my life and my prospects.
    4. Who does Anna report to? Who will review what he does? Do public get a chance to review his work?
    > Of course they get a chance to review his work. but you got to move your ass and work on this, otherwise the bus has left.
    You cannot claim ownership if you dont do anything. You need to earn that right. That is what self governance is.
    Yes, you also have the right to fast, collect people and spend time, thought, deliberate and come up with an alternate solution, toil hard, face comments from billion brother and sisters, have the drive, prove yourself and sell your ideas. Go ahead do it. No one it tying your hands. But dont spit on someone;s hard work. You will know what it means, if someone does it to you.
    5. A Raja, a former minister, Kanimozhi daughter of a powerful man, Kalmadi yet another powerful man. All of them are in Jail. JJ is facing a hearing in Bangalore shortly for a case against her. Yeddy has stepped down and he is going to be questioned now. Except for Gandhi family, which corrupt politician has escaped the clutches of law? Now what will Lokpal achieve?
    > All the cases happened in spite of govt.
    See, the idea is this. When Ambedkar wrote the constitution with the experts, the expectation was that leaders will be pure(situation the was that govt was pure, but the buereacracy was not. They have been corrupt from british days. ) So, the idea of ambedkar was that govt will take care of these bueraucrats or opposition will do that, or courts will come and do it. If you are observing indian situation very clearly, you will know that opposition was in cohoots with ruling party and courts (except supreme court) is equally worse. Or even if they are questioning each other, it takes 5 years for opposition / 20 years for the court. The idea is to speed it up. Look at CBI’s performance in Raja / Kalmadi and you can realize why it should be independent.
    It calls for just application of basic logic.
    6. Will it not set a wrong precedent? Tomorrow can all service providers protest for a paypal bill and take the country by ransom?
    > This moment was not born yesterday, it took 20 years and massive junta support (am not talking about 10000 people in ramlila maidan). So you are being paranoid.
    7. I see people telling TV cameras that they have bunked work or college or school to support Anna. Integrity anyone? Do you trust such people to come up with anything useful?
    > You have a very narrow sense of what morality is all about.
    If you believe that bunking college is immoral, then think about raping this whole country. So, yes, for taking care of such a big evil, this one can be pardoned.
    Finally

    8. Baba Ramdev also protested against corruption right? So what special qualities or superpowers Anna has over Baba?
    > It is not on the superpower of Anna / Baba that this movement rests on. It is on the tried Gandhian theory and practice. it rests on the righteousness of people.

    I can reply even more deeper about this. But typing is tiring. So, feel free to post your thoughts. You have my email id.

    JaiHind, Hindustan zindabad, God bless India

  30. Alright. TN Seshan has come up with his version of Lokpal. Will anyone support him?

    I stand by what I said. Anna’s version of Lokpal bill is as bad as governments version. Lokpal is needed. Not the version proposed by Anna.

  31. Prabhu,
    You need to tell us what is it that you do not like about Anna’s version.
    Elucidate on the points. Feel free to debate about it in your post.

    Then we can learn from each other.

    Thanks
    Sridhar

  32. Prabhu
    I do not see what T.N. Seshan’s bill is. It just talks about how Lokpal can be a constitutional body. I do not have any issues with that.
    But he does not talk about how it would operate.
    Arvind kejriwal has given a detailed version of the draft. I want to see what Seshan is upto.

    Sridhar

  33. Anna Hazare threatens the government of serious consequences if the witch hunt continues. Excellent Gandhian. And I hope you all saw what Kiran Bedi is up to. And in addition how Ford foundation is funding for the ‘Fast’. Swami Agnivesh is out now. More skeletons to come out?

    • Prabhu,
      I think there is no use in arguing with you in this regard, you seem to have made up your mind with ‘Why supporting Anna Hazare is a bad idea?’ and do not want to come out due to various reasons. Even after knowing what is Govt is, you are accusing the ppl opposing this Govt ? I think you would be happy to contribute towards the disintegration of this movement and feel personally elated ! God Save our Country !

      • Yeah right. Irrespective of whatever damage Team Anna does, you all want to ignore it. I do not agree that Team Anna is the alternate for this stupid government.

  34. Yes Anna Hazare is causing hazard on a fast growing Nation
    1. The Govt is elected by Public and no one should not be allowed to Hijack it.
    2. This Idiotic man (who claim that he has national wide support ) says Political leaders are powerful and their power should be stripped off. What prevents him to start a Political party become PM and do the best. Please do not compare with Gandhi , even if he would have elected the power was with British. So Gandhi has no other choice.
    3.The problem with the public , not by the system . We do not follow even simple rules, For ex, no one respect Yellow line and govt has to made a divider, yet we jump over it and govt spends for a parapet wall spending crore of rupees and in turn politician have the opportunity to make money in the contract.
    4.Last week in Chennai One student was murdered by his class mates for not participating annas clean? movement. These 4 students lost their future. 5 of our nationals behind bars in Dubai for violating their rules for conducting a demo there in support of this idiot.
    5.We can be proud that our country is the only one which has grown beyond imagine in just 67 years of independence. Is this not a great achievment?. The Barbarian anna Hazare claims that we , India has not achieved any thing except corruption,loot and Terrorism.
    6.He is so pessimistic and brain washing innocent public and unfortunately media project him as Gandhian. I have had never noticed and media was asking these.
    7. Even the Lokpal has been set who will decide the judgement a foreigner?. One among us, the same corrupted public.
    8.The best solution is remove corruption from the grass root level. Silently The real Gandhian ABDUL KALAAM is doing it right now. He visits almost every week high schools in villages and try to educate the young generation about non corruption who are going rule this nation tomorrow. He him self claims that this cannot happen over night. No Media talks about this . They are busy making Money ( The news media made addition revenue of 11o crore during Harares Drama).

  35. Very well defined comment. …. The voice of Anna against corruption got unprecedented publicity due to his simplicity and good character. However, now the main theme is nowhere, the so called Anna’s Team (egoist loud mouth Kegriwal and Bedi etc) motivated with vested interest are playing old game of politics through new tactics, less known to common people. It is unthinkable that a VIIth class pass person like Anna living in comparative seclusion, could have planned the movement and know ‘hi-tech’ politics and finance, and can communicate on net and mobiles with anyone in English. It is all background politics to defame and weaken Congress. Anna is thoroughly misguided and disoriented, lately his language is also getting unbecoming and crossing etiquette . He never corrected corrupt people associated with his movement. He does not care about Indian common people’s sufferings. Why did he not asked all Indians to restrain from corruption. If his words are so effective that all Indians are out with him, he should at least advice all milkmen not to mix water in Milk, Sweetmeat makers to make pure sweets, lacs of businessmen contaminating food items, medicine and much more to correct themselves. Did he cared or dared to do so ? No and never. Sitting on top with simple face making signs to drummers to drum fast does not need much art. All this hollow cry of corruption is in fact bogus and reeks with vested motives. Further, I do not know how many people care for the growth of India, people having grudge with Indian progress do not want Congress Government’s Economic policies to take effect. Who is responsible for the quantum of financial loss and delayed economic progress due to Anna’s interventions in government works. This should be brought to light before people advocating VIIth class pass disoriented dictator………….

  36. I am against Anna right from the beginning. I also think corruption should be eradicated but not the Anna way. He thinks 542 people sitting in the parliament are foolish. He thinks himself above everything. He thinks whatever he is saying is all correct and all others are wrong. Just see the arrogance when he speaks against the Govt. I firmly believe he has deep-seated feeling of resentment against Govt. thats why he is doing all these dramas. How can he say 121 crore people are with him. Only those people who have ill experience with govt. machinery are with him. kiran Bedi, arvind kejriwal, prashant bhushan to name few.

  37. No, I am not satisfy with anna. Yes, we should have to fight against corruption, but i not favor anna as fasting never resolve the problem of corruption and scams.

  40. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue along with your website
