Why Anna Hazare’s Victory is so essential for us

 

 

A 71 year old man named Anna Hazare has decided to fast unto death unless government  rectifies and gives more teeth to a bill called Lokpal bill ,do we really care??

Anna Hazare

Many people start fasts these days,they go on strike for every possible reason,there are dharnas everywhere so whats so special about Anna.

First of all who is Anna Hazare : Anna is a social activist of wide acclaim,he was awarded both padmabhushan(1992) and padmashri(1990) among various other awards. He served in Army and later became a social activist. He is known to be a man who can think far far ahead of most of us. He converted a village Ralegan Siddh to a model village which is a model of environmental conservation. Most notable about this village is that the entire village is powered by solar power.

So What is anna fighting for. Anna Hazare is fighting to give Indian population the legal muscle to wipe out corruption. He is fighting to give more teeth to a bill called Lokpal bill which has been hanging in parliament for more than 40 years chiefly because it will give us the power to bring to justice the corrupt politicians ,hence they never let it pass.

The current lokpal bill being considered  is a total sham ,and as one judge rightly said it is shamelessly tooth less. Here is the version of bill the government wants to give us and what Anna is demanding(from wikipedia)

Govt. Proposal

1. Lokpal will have no power to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public. It can only probe complaints forwarded by LS Speaker or RS Chairman.
2. Lokpal will only be an Advisory Body. Its part is only limited to forwarding its report to the “Competent Authority”
3. Lokpal will not have any police powers. It can not register FIRs or proceed with criminal investigations.
4. CBI and Lokpal will have no connection with each other.
5. Punishment for corruption will be minimum 6 months and maximum up-to 7 years.

Hazare’s(Civil Society) Version also known and Jan Lokpal bill

1. Lokpal will have powers to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public.
2. Lokpal will be much more than an Advisory Body. It should be granted powers to initiate Prosecution against anyone found guilty.
3. Lokpal will have police powers. To say that it will be able to register FIRs.
4. Lokpal and anti corruption wing of CBI will be one Independent body.
5. The punishment should be minimum 5 years and maximum up-to life imprisonment.

 

So how is this fight soo soo important, it is important for various reasons

. Anna Hazare is fighting for us: Even if the bill is passed possible Anna Hazare will not be able to see the corruption free India he is fighting for. He is doing it for the coming generation,he is doing it for us also he is doing what we should be doing. We keep complaining that “This is the way it is and this is how it should be” and “Nothing can change” corruption is too deep,politicians are too powerful,but we do NOTHING about it,now here is a 71 year old guy who is showing us what can be done. If he fails we fail and all the cribbers win. Out procrastination wins, we add one more thing in our list of excuses for doing nothing. He looses we loose the idealism of an entire generation

 

Anna is doing it Gandhi style, a very civilised and peaceful protest. No blocking trains,no burning buses ,no violence .

He is showing us how it should be done,how Gandhi ji used to do it, how its more about inner power than external. He is showing us that Gandhi Ideals still hold  true ,they still work. If he fails we loose trust ,we loose trust in the very basis of Indian freedom struggle.A base which is already shattered ,most people don’t understand What Gandhi ji stood for what he did. Ana Hazare is a shining example for the entire generation to come( see how to support Anna 1)

And at last ,if Anna looses this time ,we can safely say bye bye to lokapal bill for another 40 years. Politicains would never pass a bill that would make it easier for us to bring them to book ,it will take people like Hazare to build up a movement to force them and sadly we don’t see likes of him very often(also see How this is a leaderless movement).

If hazare looses today ,nothing changes,yes nothing changes for you or me. We will still live the way we live,keep cribbing about corruption in India,red tap-ism and bureaucracy but if he wins it will be a huge step to a better India .An India with no corruption,an India where even the Prime minister would be afraid of taking any bribe ,an  India where the public servants will finally be accountable to the public ,the way it should be.  An India  of our Dreams….

 

God ,let Anna Win

  3. Corruption will not stop by his movement. He is being used by rightist forces who are and were against the mandal cdommission. Why he of all the ministers target Sharad Pawar and praise Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar? Are they not corrupt? The muslim killings in Gujrat is never criticised by hajare. He never upheld social justice or taken the side dalits and backwards. He is playing in the hands of RSS. Economic issues will not change the inhuman social system i.e. caste system. Supporters of hajare are either innocents or who are not aware of the social issues, communal issues. Media is in the grip of upper castes and propogate their view points

    1. Well my beleif here is a little diffrent. He cannot fight everythin…but again if we look at the Lok pall bill it has got merits.
      We can fight on its merits…irrespective of who is behind this,whatever Anna is fighting for is worth fighting for. We will be able to punish even narendra modi or any corrupt politician . This Bill is more important than who is behind it
      wat say?

  15. Gandhi is still living in this Ghandhi Desh? When these politicians makes non sense that is affecting full mass of the country. How do you say Honourable Thief? Diplomatic Thief means Honourable? They are making money to stand for elections? Good politician should work for the country not for his pocket?

  17. Anna has completed 11th day if his fast,he is without food for 11 days for whoom for the public of India,we are simlpy watching anna on television since 16th August.He is not showing the Physical pain he is facing.But i urge every Politician citing in the assembly to assume themseleves at anna’s place and then think.I listened Mr. Khurshid’s staement on televisin,he said,I do not know what is Anshan so i do not know what is the procedure to break Anna’s Fast.

    I request all of those who are reading my commments on this page,If this government failed to take decision today on to break Anna’s fast.For Future we will not vote for anybody.Those politician who will came to us for the vote, simply ask them to have a fast(anshan) of at least 5 days to be worthy to run this government. Let them know the experience of the poors which have to leave without food due to high increase inthe rates of food items and every thing.

    The income of one common graduate peron is just enough in the range of 10,000 to 15,000.00 per month.This MLA’S and MP’s which are elected by us, i think 10 to 20percentage of these are hardly graduates and earning 80000.00 per month and other Allowances exta.

    Please think on this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Mai Anna se puchna chahta hu ki maine 22 december ko loksabha ki gandi vichar dekhi. Jahan saari partiya indirectly Lokpal ko laagu nahi karna chahti aise me mere jaise log jo aapke sath chal kar in gande netaon ko sudharna chahte hein, hamare paas ab kon se raste hein? Kya hum saare desh ke logo ko ye sachchayi bata payenge ki rajnitik partiyan kitni gandi ho chuki hein?

  21. Deepak, Kisi ko to shuruwaat karni padegi. Anna ne ek shuruwaat kari, jiski wajah se aap aur mei iske saath jude. Ab aage aapko aur logon ko jodna hai. Logon tak baat pahunchani hai.
    Agar hum angrezon ko bhaga sakte hain to ye kya cheez hai
    Bas yaad rahe, ahimsa hi hamara sabse bada hathiyaar hai

    Jai Hind
