If you are looking for some ‘great article’ with lots of ‘Technical or Shakespearean English’ or if you are looking for some ‘Masalaa’ or some ‘mud-smearing’ then I can tell you – you are at the wrong place! In that case humbly request you to use Google to quench your thirst.
Also, if you are looking for a quick answer to the questions like-
- Should I (the author) support Anna Hazare?
- Why I support Anna Hazare?
- Why I don’t support Anna Hazare?
- Why you (the reader) should support Anna Hazare?
- Why you should not support Anna Hazare?
- Why you should support Lokpal Bill?
- Why you should not support Lokpal Bill?
But what this series of articles will try to do are-
- Help in understanding of the Lokpal Bill and the Jan Lokpal Bill.
- Help in the providing information about leaders of this campaign called – Indian Against Corruption.
- Help in providing Information that will help you to draw a conclusion your self.
On this auspicious day of Janmashtami, I have started a series of articles about these issues. This series of articles are based on my understanding and I will clearly separate the facts from my personal opinions. I sincerely hope it will serve the purpose it aims for.
So lets begin with some key points-
- India is world’s largest democratic nation. Unfortunately, its resources are under-utilized and Corruption is one of the key concerns other than Illiteracy, Poverty, Unemployment, Dirty Politics and others. All these problems together have caused hindrance of the society.
- I believe every citizen except for a few who are highly benefited by corruption would like India to be corruption-free.
- Every journey has a start, which begins slowly with a small step. Same goes with the current campaign.
- Anna Hazare doesn’t just happen to wake up from a sleep to do something for the country. He was known long before this Lokpal movement came along.
- Lokpal wasn’t Anna Hazare’s idea. He is among one of the supporters of Lokpal.
- Lokpal was suggested and originally drafted by Political leaders back in 1960’s.
- Lokpal Bills demands existence of ‘Lokpal Committee’ as an Independent body which a few critics (of Lokpal) have termed ‘Undemocratic’ or ‘Non-constitutional’. However, a couple (or more) such bodies already exist in our Democracy.
