It’s a shame that educated middle class who are settled in the Urban India still follows the frauds like Kiran Bedi, Aravind Kejriwal & Shanti Bhushan who tried to prove themselves as saviors of India in their talks and included in the corrupt practices on their lives.
I won’t ever oppose anybody, if they say that the Team Anna is in the hands of right wing politicians, who want to mobilize the crowds to destroy the secular democratic fabric of our country.
It may be a truth that Anna Hazare is the messiah for the Ralegan Siddhi, he opposes the election process, he delivers judgment, decides the future of the village men and with his fellow followers he rules that village. But being a messiah of a small village, will it entails him to control a nation, which is having democratically elected people’s representative and with a well established law.
Now the news channel are showing live broadcast of Anna’s drama from Delhi, whose all fair and practical demands have been accepted by the government and the opposition. But he didn’t end his fasting, in order to satisfy his team’s ego and greed. Let think about Sharmila, who fights for the past 10 years just to assure her people’s right to live.
There is no doubt that corruption is a major issue today. We have several legal and institutional arrangements; we have a number of laws like Prevention of Corruption Act, the Prevention of Money Laundering Act., the Central Vigilance Commission Act, and at last one Right of Information Act. And India is going to enact another law to curb this menace and a self proclaimed Gandhi named Anna has come with his own draft and whole corporate media is showing his drama.
For the past few months so called ‘Civil Society’, with the help of some neo journalists are trying to hijack the Indian democracy. India’s big media houses relate all the black dots with politicians, which gave them a huge fan base of people who are affected with politicophobia. The recent stunt by Anna Hazare got an unwanted media hype which resulted in groups not constituted legally cross the line of decency, trying to hijack the constitutional procedures and ends in a great mess.
