The government has done what a nervous administration can do. They have arrested Anna Hazare and his aides even before starting the hunger strike.

As the day is progressing swelling crowd pour support to Anna Hazare.

Will this snowball into a major nationwide movement leading to fall of the government? Did not the govt use a spade when a pin was enough?

Congress party in India never Cares about The Criticizer.

In fact there is no Connection between The Freedom Fighters of Those days and Present Congress men.

V.O.C spared all his property and belongings for the sake of Country.

K.Kamaraj led a very simple living till he dies. In fact after his death There were only Rs 832/- rupees found in his house.

Ex Congress Minister Kakkan was in a Hut at the time of his death.

While Typing this I had a Fine Memory of Shri K.Kamaraj happened in Tirunelveli.

During 1960s Central Theater was Constructed.At that Time K.K was not the C.M of Tamil Nadu but he is the Leader of Congress party.

Mrs Rajathi Kunjitha Patham was the MLA at that Time.

She came to Central Theater for a Film in Thasildar's Jeep.

Unfortunately Shri K.K saw Govt Jeep in a Theater.

He called the Then Collector of Tirunelveli Shri Pasupathy and Ordered Theater Staff and inquired who used the Govt Jeep for Film.

The Theater Staff informed him that MLA came in Thasildar's Jeep.

He immediately Scolded the Driver and Ordered him to take away the Jeep from the Spot and park it in Govt Shed.

Without the Knowledge of MLA The Driver Took away the Jeep from the Spot.

As soon as the Film is over MLA found that the Jeep along with Driver is missing in spot.

She inquired the Theater Staff and came to know that Shri K.K came to Theater and ordered to vacate the Govt Jeep.

She was totally Disturbed and rushed to see Shri K.K in Circuit House.

Shri K.K scolded her and warned her that She Must Not Mis Use Govt property and Govt Staff for her Personal Purpose.

She requested Apologies to Shri K.K and Those periods are Golden Days of Indian Democracy.
 
Mr. Shankar Naryan,

I request you not to compare Mr. Kamaraj with any of the politicians now, those are people believed in principles and today we have people who believed in money more than principles. In this particular scenario I want to give you a modern example which happened in Andhra.

In Andhra as all of you know there is an agitation going on for a separate state of telengana when congress MLAs were asked to resign they were thinking that they haven’t earned enough money to go in for the elections. I don’t know whether these people are eligible for at least to take KK name.

In case anna the govt. has fully under estimated his following which has led to chaos, the govt. was looking at some where around 10 to 15 thousand supporters, now its too late for the govt. to step back, they could see that its growing exponentially and this will lead to washout of congress.

Bye

I totally agree that Kamaraj and Kakkan period was the Golden Days of Indian Democracy.

....But, these days, people have changed... all most ALL, including politicians, police, judges and others, are involved in either Bribe Giving and/or Bribe Taking... and our politics reflect that...

Anna Hazare & Party do not understand that it is the Problem of the Society at large... not just the politicians. We need to think in terms of Cultural Change, not just making one more Law: there are very many laws against Corruption already on the books - even the PM can be sued using the current law - a stronger Lokpal is not going to solve anything.

Anna Hazare is a very naive person... he has his rights to Hunger Strike sitting in his house. He can't violate the Section 144 of CrPC of India.

That's why he is in Tihar... he can walk out anytime by signing a Personal Affidavit that he will obey the laws of the land.

Wait & watch.

ps. If Anna wants a real strict Lokpal law, then he must obey such strict laws regarding peaceful assembly and against Public Nuisance... he is acting against his own teachings here... this shows he is NOT a serious person, but just a Showman! Lol

The whole thing will fizzle out, either at Anna's camp or at govt's camp. There could be compromise or acceptable via-media on the inclusion of PM and Judiciary without any teeth to punish them. Millions of Indians are busy hitting the keys mbs and pcs and ltops. Good numbers are watching the rotten tv serials and others are commuting to work and so on... Though a few massive ships were washed ashore, the coast guards are busy on the high seas monitoring nobody knows what.

anna hazare is a 'taliban gandhi', who doesnt understand the working principles of democratic parliamentarian system.

no wonder, he is just a 7th std pass.

if he succeed in putting all his whims and fancies to 'lok pal bill' , wait, the big thing is yet to come..

his next hunger strike will be for a 'maratha bill' seeking 70% reservation for marathas in mumbai.

get rid of these weeds

we have elections to get rid of governments. this type of street style blackmail and thuggery is not good for democracy. or the long term interests of the country.

I fully support Anna Hazare.

Compared to the laws which politicans have broken, a few so-called 'laws' which anna hazare has broken is nothing.

If only we could have the money back (in billions) which politicians have stashed away in swiss banks..then imagine how many schools, universities, hospitals, small scale factories, manufacturing industries, airports, roads, housing projects, various projects for underprivileged, etc the country could have built...

Anna Hazare is not doing any drama, nor was Baba Ramdev...The real drama players are the politicians who oppose Hazare and Baba Ramdev..These politicians come up with inane loopholes to trap Hazare, lathicharge peaceful gatherings, they malign Baba Ramdev, jail Hazare,.....

Those who malign Baba Ramdev should visit Patanjali Yogpeeth once before talking (to see the good work they are doing and to see how poor people are given free treatment)..

Shame on the UPA folks...

Now the situation reminds me of the famous Malayalam Saying நாயர் பிடிச்ச புலிவால்.
The "know-alls" who run this Government mishandled the issue from the day one and got into this mess.

Though I agree that such fasting exercises are not good in the long run, I want to know what is the solution to this corruption mess.

The most intelligent thing is if any activist can gather public support he can change the tide and increase vigilance. If tighter laws cannot solve the corruption issue, then there is no need for the Government to fear. But they are afraid about something. That is because their hands are dirty and certain laws can put them in. The king's throne itself may be threatened by such laws. Hence the desperation.

In India people get elected no doubt as in a democracy. But did they not get elected by creating public nuisance, using false promises, bribing the votors, favoring their special caste segments and so on. In this case Anna has attempted to gather the public to act against the corrupt. I think it is the right tactics against the right people. However I am in serious doubt whether it will be auccess. At grassroots the real population of India, are still not conscious of the enormous need to discipline public life. This will therefore end in a whimper, a few rich and middle class ( only those who have time after work) will support this cause. There is not even the same fire as the anti-reservation protests inspite of this being a more wide cause. It is bound to fizzle out.

The main issue at present for the Central Government is not Lokpal Bill or any damn bill.The netas are having sleepless nights on finding a strategy how to deal with Anna Hazare who is turning to be a pain in the neck for the Government.

Hmmm...looks like there is going to be some action at Ramlila maidan. The public support is overwhelming...Looks like the aam aadmi sees himself in Ramdev and Hazare. And hence supports them.

Atleast Anna Hazare is continuing his fast thanks to people support. Baba Ramdev also should have continued his fast but instead of supporting him even some people close to him were keen on demoralizing him and pulling him down.

Hope Anna Hazare succeeds. Hope Baba Ramdev, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, etc, (everyone who cares) will come out in full force and support the Lokpal bill (including people like Naga sadhus )..

But most importantly, hope Anna Hazare stays safe. UPA seems keen to have him off their back somehow or the other. The way UPA is opposing Hazare merely shows how much they stand to lose if lokpal bill gets implemented.

Subbudu sir, looks like except the manasaakshi there is no other way to deal with corruption. The next time if we are in a situation to give or receive bribe let us think twice, spend a moment with our conscience and then proceed...prob is we are desensitized to corruption...shameful really...

I have been watching Anna Hazare & Co for quite sometime... I agree Corruption is the Monster that everyone wants to slay.. the question is HOW? Because the participants are nearly EVERYONE in India: from ordinary people to all powerful police, judiciary, CMs and all others in between... even the educated youths believe they have the RIGHT to bribe their way up, and jump the lines... they don't want to follow any Rule or Regulation. Bribe Givers are as much responsible as the Bribe Takers in this crime. So we have a Cultural Problem.

I get the feeling that Anna is very naive about the issues of corruption, and he believes his way is the right way and the only way, and he is bent upon creating a law and order situation in the Capital and elsewhere.

Political activism is GOOD.. but we can't create a pandemonium such that anti-social elements would be encouraged to set fire to India... please recall what happened in London recently.

Lokpal Bill is tabled in the Parliament. Let the members argue on it.. make amendments, work with the Standing Committee and bring the final product as good as most people would like... Anna Team can work with an Alternate Jan Lokpal Bill and present it to the Parliament.. and see how the members vote for it.

Parliament is the ultimate authority in passing any Bill into Law.. not a single personality like Anna Hazare...We MUST protect the Parliamentary Democracy at all and any cost.

Delhi Police have acted right.. the Magistrate sent Anna to Tihar, and now he has withdrawn his order.. Anna can leave the jail, go to a place where he can continue with his Hunger Strike... but he just can't create a mayhem as it happened at the Ramlila Ground sometime ago: there was fire and possibility of many deaths.

We respect the Democratic Process, AND the dignity of life for ALL citizens, not just for a few vocal people.

Wait & watch.

ps. BJP/NDA wants to use this occasion to get some political mileage: for them a problem of law and order is "God-send" and Anna Hazare is providing them with such an emotional situation.. India needs a Viable Responsible Opposition.

'hang the corrupt! this is what the law the infantiles, anna & baba,wanted in the bill.

it may sound juicy to ears of those knee jerk thinkers,but looking at the practicality it gives an entirely shocking picture.

t
ransparency international in India finds that more than 45% of Indians had first-hand experience of paying bribes. every second indian is a corrupt, a probability equal to tossing a coin, either anna or baba would have a good chance to be corrupt, and baba has already been signaled to be one.

if so, 450 million will have a good chance to be put on the death noose.


ho many percentage out of that 450Mn would be MLA/MP/Babus/minister/govt employee (even if we assume all of them as corrupt? very minuscule, may be 2%.. so who holds the major shade in the corrupt pie chart? he is our Aam Admi !!

now anna wants the corruption cases to be cleared within 1 year. here he miserably failed to understand the strengths and weakness of our 'judicial system' which is quite respected globally.

its strength: our legal system strongly believes and enforces this ethic 'it is better to let million guilty men
free than to convict one innocent man'. unlike usa, have you read any regular stories in india of an innocent being sentenced to death? its weakness, is its piling cases and slow trial, which takes more than 20 years to deliver a judgment. even 2 decades after assassinating a P.M, the convicts are still alive. this is a real situation of our legal system. with a stoke of a button manmohan singh or any may not be able to change a system over night to work effectively and efficient by 900%. even if all judges work 24/7, it cannot be achieved.

this is the typical problem with these kind of people, who walk with new shoes to discuss about laws/bills/constitution/democracy without having any iota of idea about legal system.

with due respect to APJ.Kalam, when it comes to the understanding the democracy/political system, he flunked and fell flat embarrassingly many a times in his job as president.


in a country where even the eminent scientist APJ Kalam found it difficult to grasp it, how can all these points enter the head of a 70+ year old, 7th std pass army-truck driver who got inducted in to army despite not meeting the physical requirements?

as P.M MM sigh put it rightly today "annas path was "totally misconceived" and fraught with "grave consequences" for Parliamentary democracy"

let anna dont poke his nose in the subjects where he has not expertize.

with his long experience as an truck-driver, may be he should try his anti-corruption movement by gathering all cabbies in delhi, making them vouch not to give bribe, and fight against those corrupt traffic cops & RTO's. let every trucks carry annas picture, to scare the cops. here I agree, he is indeed an expert in that subject !

Dear Yamaka,

I have been watching Anna Hazare & Co for quite sometime... Because the participants are nearly EVERYONE in India: from ordinary people to all powerful police, judiciary, CMs and all others in between... even the educated youths believe they have the RIGHT to bribe their way up, and jump the lines... they don't want to follow any Rule or Regulation. Bribe Givers are as much responsible as the Bribe Takers in this crime. So we have a Cultural Problem.

bribe givers and takers cannot be clubbed together. A bribe giver is under duress and that makes all the difference. It is not as if he goes to an authority and says "look here I have a Rs. 5000/- please take it and give me a water connection to my house." Nor will it be true that the taker has no other go than to accept the bribe to give the water connection. Equivocqtion in such situation can be dangerous. Bribe will disappear only when there is fear to demand and take it. Anna Hazare is trying to institutionalize an effective supervisory mechanism which will keep vigil over powerful people so that they do not dare to take bribe.

I get the feeling that Anna is very naive about the issues of corruption, and he believes his way is the right way and the only way, and he is bent upon creating a law and order situation in the Capital and elsewhere.

The facts speak otherwise. He has a good grip of what is needed and is in a single minded pursuit of it. It is the police/Government which is creating a law and order situation to denigrate Anna's movement.

Political activism is GOOD.. but we can't create a pandemonium such that anti-social elements would be encouraged to set fire to India... please recall what happened in London recently.

It is peaceful protest that Anna is indulging in and not creating pandemonium. Anti-socials not getting in is the head ache of Police because they know who are the antisocials.

Lokpal Bill is tabled in the Parliament. Let the members argue on it.. make amendments, work with the Standing Committee and bring the final product as good as most people would like... Anna Team can work with an Alternate Jan Lokpal Bill and present it to the Parliament.. and see how the members vote for it.

Lokpal bill in its present form is a jokepal bill. It is a toothless wonder. In Parliament what is in the bill can only be debated and not what is not there. Anna wanted the bill itself do be discussed with his group of activists before introduction in the house. But Government over-ruled him. What is the Govt. afraid of?

Parliament is the ultimate authority in passing any Bill into Law.. not a single personality like Anna Hazare...We MUST protect the Parliamentary Democracy at all and any cost.

In India people have lost their trust in the ability of parliamentarians to eradicate corruption. So they are not ready to accept the mantra that parliament is supreme. If people want some changes which are not liked by parliamentarians, whose will will prevail? People's or MPs'? Anna is not just an individual today. He represents the common man's frustration with the politicians and their corrupt practices.

Delhi Police have acted right.. the Magistrate sent Anna to Tihar, and now he has withdrawn his order.. Anna can leave the jail, go to a place where he can continue with his Hunger Strike... but he just can't create a mayhem as it happened at the Ramlila Ground sometime ago: there was fire and possibility of many deaths
.

Delhi police is drifting with the current. Anna is not on a private vratham in his house for improving his digestive system. His fast is a symbolic protest. He is desperate to draw the Govt.'s attention to a serious problem which it is refusing to take note. So he needs to fast in public view. What was in disply in Ramlila grounds is the ineptness of the Govt/police.

We respect the Democratic Process, AND the dignity of life for ALL citizens, not just for a few vocal people.

When the so called democratic process wants to keep some powerful positions out of reach of public scrutiny they become subverted democratic processes. A few vocal people do not want to enact a law outside the parliament. They have a certain solution and they want Govt. to seriously consider them.

ps. BJP/NDA wants to use this occasion to get some political mileage: for them a problem of law and order is "God-send" and Anna Hazare is providing them with such an emotional situation.. India needs a Viable Responsible Opposition.

India needs a ruling coalition which is alive and responsive to the needs of its citizens: not a motley crowd which sees only a conspiracy in every move of opposition parties.

Cheers.
