What do you think about this statement for Anna Hazare?
Jai jai baba Anna Hazare. Corruption khatam karo tum pyare. Hum hain stupid tum ho hero, corruption ko tum kar do zero. Anna Hazare ki aarti jo koi jan gaata, corruption se bach jaata, koi dar nahin samata, paap utar jaata. Jai jai baba Anna Hazare
its very very shameful that tamil actors didnt support for this.... and i agree with the other person that thy know to support politicians for their personal gain and not for good cause. very SELFISH.
Is it not ironical that Anna Hazare is sharing space with Suresh Kalmadi in Tihar Jail?
Anna Hazare is a hardliner, his benign demeanour notwithstanding...and Suresh Kalmadi is equally hardened, LOL! So, no danger of any one getting influenced by the other.
Not that they are put together in the same cell or something...Tihar being a very big jail, chances of them coming face to face are next to nil...they won't even meet in line for meals, as Anna Hazare won't touch food ;))
Yes, it's ironic how fate has brought them to share the same 'house'....
What is lokpal bill? What did anna hazare and his followers fasted?
Lokpal Bill is the law which the Parliament had been trying to pass since 40 years in which a department similar to Judiciary under the head "Lokpal" is to be formed whose job is to investigate the cases of corruption. Obviously, there will be thousands of such complaints from the public and to look into all these and do quick justice needs an institution with manpower, budget to run it and wide powers to the Lokpal to punish the corrupt persons.
As the Bill was pending since 40 years, Annaji started a movement to get it passed and his team which has renowned lawyers like Shati Bhushan and Prashant Bhushan (son of Mr. Shanti Bhushan) prepared a draft of it which they named Jan Lokpal Bill. However, after several consultations, government did not include some strong provisions of Jan Lokpal Bill for which Annaji went on indefinite fast and finally succeeded in the acceptance in principle of the three of the major provisions. Annaji calls it half victory as there is no guaranttee that these three important points sent to the Standing Committee for aproval will finally be accepted as the government has a support of 14 members of the committee out of 25. So, finally government may end up trying to pass a weak Bill. Most of our MPs are corrupt and hence they do not like a strong Lokpal Bill passed and this is the main reason for the Bill not having been passed since more than 40 years. In the past, 8 times it was presented for passing in the Parliament, but was rejected by the MPs.
Are the followers of Anna Hazare such pure characters who haven't taken bribes?
Most of the followers of Anna Hazare are people who are fed up with paying bribes. Even the people who receive bribes have to pay them to other people. If the Indian government paid the clerks a living wage they would not have to take bribes to fed their children.
Can anna hazare do anything to this country against corruption?
He has already contributed in his own small ways in the past - be it towards local development, RTI, Vrikshamitra, etc.
The current indefinite fast to bring in a strong JanLokpal Bill may or may not be successful - still "early days". However, he has Already Succeeded in creating public awareness, mobilising the youth & many other groups, offering a beacon of hope to the cynics & to the people who have to face petty corruption in their daily lives, becoming a symbol to rally around & channelising energies in a positive direction....
