Anna Hazare has given an ultimatum to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to enact stringent anti-corruption law – the peoples “Jan Lokpal Bill”! Jail to the corrupt must happen! We have been betrayed by those that are leading us!.
Fast unto Death from 5th April 2011 at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi.
Anna Hazare is a soldier, lone survivor in his unit in 1965 Indo-Pak war. Anna dedicated his life to the well-being of society. A bachelor, an ascetic, he has no possessions, no bank balance and lives in a temple. He is a living Mahatma Gandhi.
In Maharashtra, Anna has single handedly transformed barren and dry regions into green and food surplus areas. He has fasted unto death on several earlier occasions. He forced the Maharashtra government to dismiss the corrupt – 6 ministers and 400 officers. Due to his fast, the govt enacted the Maharashtra RTI Act. In 2006, when government of India tried to amend the Central RTI Act, he again went on an indefinite fast and forced the Indian government not to amend RTI Act.

A very well-written article! Please read all the way:I like Manmohan Singh. He has immaculate credentials. It’s these
credentials that have seen the UPA through its most stormy years. If
Singh wasn’t Prime Minister, the Government would have collapsed a
long time back. No, not because of its inherent coalition contradictionsbut because it’s simply not possible for so many crooks with conflictingagendas to loot the country together, almost as if in perfect unison.The Indian Political Philharmonic Orchestra must be the world’s mostamazing cacophony of rogues, rascals and robbers. Luckily for the UPA,there was always Singh to fall back on. Most middle class Indians refuseto be cynical. We know exactly what’s happening around us, we criticizeit constantly, but when it comes to the crunch we all rally around thenation and the flag. We are not bat-brained paranoids. Neither are wewide-eyed innocents ready to buy into every ridiculous explanationthrown our way to explain the loot that’s taking place in broad daylight.But the latest season of scams has flummoxed all. This is not just Alibabaand his chaalis chors.Everyone among the chaalis chors is another Alibaba with his own forty
thieves. That’s the way the pyramid of crime operates today. But becauseSingh, soft spoken and self effacing, is the face of this Government, Indiahas kept faith.But now, enough is enough. Neither Singh nor PranabMukherjee, nor anyone else is capable any more of saving this Government.It’s neck deep in its own sticky sleaze. What’s worse, you haven’t seen anything
yet. All these scams are but the tip of the iceberg. Talk to anyone
and you will get an instant dhobi list of scams in queue to break.No, I am not saying this. Congress leaders are, in private. Look at Singh,wan and way lost. Or Mukherjee going apopleptic in faux anger becausehe has to defend what he knows is indefensible. They look less convincingthan Rakhi Sawant playing Joan of Arc.The problem is: We have voted into power the stupidest bunch of thieves.
They are such losers that they can’t steal a hamburger without leaving
ketchup stains all over. Yet they are constantly trying to pull off
the biggest scams in history. From Rs 64 crore in Bofors, they have
upped the ante to Rs 170,0000 crore in 2G and no, I am not including
hundreds of aircraft Air India bought while sinking into bankruptcy
and preposterous sums spent on arms deals that have made India theworld’s second largest arms buyer when we can’t provide food andhealthcare to 60% Indians. Our leaders are making deals on the slywith greedy builders, land sharks, illegal mining companies, corporatefixers, shady arms dealers and, O yes, US diplomats who want to manipulateour political choices. And, what’s more amazing, they do it like bunglingidiots. Even Inspector Clouseau can outwit them.But that doesn’t mean they are not malevolent. These are people who
are destroying India from within. They are not just robbing you, me,
and the exchequer. They are destroying institutions, subverting laws,
vandalizing our heritage and history, and trying to build a dazzling,
amoral edifice of crime and corruption unprecedented in the nation’s
history. It’s a scary scenario that could turn the land of the Mahatma
into one gigantic Gotham City with a flyover to hell.But my question is more basic: Can we trust these idiots to run this great nation?If you travel and meet people across India, you will realize that for
every scam that breaks—and currently there’s one breaking every
week—there are ten more waiting in line. The media has never had it so
good! And it’s the same gang whose names keep coming up. Kalmadi,
Satish Sharma, Sant Chatwal, Ashok Chavan. The NCP lot.
The DMK. And everyone, in private, is protesting his own innocence,
pointing fingers at someone else. It’s a sure sign of a collapsing
regime. It’s what happened when Rajiv with a staggering majority in
parliament lost his mandate to govern. Rats alone don’t leap off a
sinking ship. So do everyone else.So even though Singh, like Pontiffs Pilate, may wash his hands off
every scam that hits the headlines, the fact is: The longer this
Government stays, the more compromised the Congress will be, and the
less capable of coming back to power. You can’t allow the sovereignty
of a nation to be compromised just to win a confidence vote. You can’t
bribe MPs to get your way in parliament. You can’t allow a shady
hotelier, with CBI cases against him, to play roving diplomat and,
worse, give him a Padma Bhushan for it. You can’t appoint a tainted
bureaucrat as the nation’s CVC. You can’t file a FIR against a corrupt CMand then allow him to melt away. You can’t let the prime witness to thenation’s biggest scam, who offered to turn approver, be murdered in broaddaylight and pretend it’s a suicide.If this is the best this Government can do, it’s time to step down.(contributed by : Amr on 26.08.2012)A SHIP ABOUT TO SINK — Pritish Nandy A very well-written article!
