Big brother warns small brother
Yesterday an USA officer warned India to handle Anna Hazare 's indefinite fast carefully; Democracy should give space to the struggles in peaceful means. It may look like correct. But congress party condemned this press report of USA officer. It is not your business to intervene in our business. How he dares to warn our country; Because of our govt is joined to USA as an younger brother after atomic agreement. So our govt do not make any sound on this. That officer has thought India is one of the states of united states of America. All are politics
The rise of Anna Hazare
Suddenly Anna Hazare appeared in national scenario as a crusader of corruption. Of course he had his record opposing corruption in Maharastra state. He has a following from middle class and genuine public. He had some success in his struggles in past.With this experience he demanded lokpal bill to be passed in Parliament. Press and Media gave importance to his demand.
Background of lokpal bill
In recent time, the corruption charges rocked the political atmosphere continuously. 2G spectrum, 3G spectrum, Adharsh housing scam, common wealth games scam, land scams of Ediyurappa, mining scame of reddy brothers, krishna godavari oil scam...are some of them. People were very angry to know the rulers are looting the nation itself in a grand manner.
In this background Anna's demand for Lokpal bill got support of the people tremendously ,especially from youth. Non affiliated men to political parties were eagerly supported as they thought all political parties are corrupted. Naturally his fast yielded result. Govt accepted his demand to bring lokpal bill in August and formed a committee to give suggestion to govt to this effect. That committee included five of Anna's team and they gave valuable suggestions to govt. But govt did not accepted and prepared the bill with their own points diluting the methods, punishments and extension of powerful limits. Significantly Prime Minister is exempted from its purview of inquiry. This is not the first time the govt bring Lokpal bill in parliament. In previous times Prime Minister was brought in the purview of Lokpal at that times the govts hadn't passed the bills.
Anna on fast path
So now Anna , as he announced earlier, starting his fast from 16th August. Govt did not permit him in junter Munter area where his fast he wanted to take place. Then he accepted to the place of jeyaprakash maidan where police allotted. Then the police gives the conditions to finish his fast in two and half days and five thousand people only should assemble there. At this time the USA officer has given the support to Anna and this naturally has raised sparks in all circles.
Interference into India's politics
Some are raising doubts whether Anna is kindled by USA; some put angry why USA is interfering in our politics against the morality of international politics and sovereignty of our country. And some are happy that USA supporting us ; then we will win at last.
Basic causes of corruption
Anna is really fighting corruption.But can he control it? Never He do not touch the basic causes of corruption; the globalaisation, Privatisation and Liberalaisation. He is away from politics and wantonly avoiding political parties except RSS camp. So his intention is questioned whether he is fighting congress to bring BJP to power. some say this is for diverting from the main politics of price rising, unemployment problem, poverty etc and thus helping govt. so only govt gives more importance to these struggles while it is not bothering about other struggles of political parties, trade unions, farmers etc. This point we could not set aside.
Jan Lokpal bill -will it be a solution?
Corruption could be erased by a bill called lokpal bill ? No,never; but it could be used by the good political parties and individuals to fight with corruption. So we can welcome the fight for lokpal bill. But we could not hope after that bill passed there will be no scams at all. In our country there is untouchablity after PCR sections in IPC. There is marketing of education after right to education bill. We could not get information after RTI bill passed.A bill is coming to right to food after that the poverty wont go.
So,we should understand that the corruption is a inseparable part of our society set up which gives huge scope for corruption. If it is fought by only some leaders and by some bills ,there will be no results. The fight should be connected with the fight against the society set up .
Why Anna not against Raja,Dhayanidhi or Kanimozhi?
In Tamil Nadu all are supporting Anna thinking that he is against Raja of 2G or Kanimozhi. But Anna does not giving voice against Raja, Dhayanidhi or Kanimozhi. He only focusing the brokers of corruption not the beneficiers like Ambanis or American companies who induce corruption. All are lighting candles to support Anna not by knowing what is happening around them. Thus they supported Ramdev. When police nearing him he jumped off the stage and hide in ladies dress they were shocked. Now Anna's turn, Any how we can welcome the anti corruption mood created by this mass media propaganda. But there is adanger, when this struggle gets a failure people wont come forward to any other anti corruption movements in future. Beware of struggles.
