When corruptions are topping politicians agenda we cannot expect them to enforce a law or bill to scrutinize themselves.It is like sitting on the tree branch and cutting the same branch with axe.Why would they like do that ?
Few ministers or politicians may be honest but the majority are corrupt.They invest money when contesting in elections and try to retrieve them after coming to power.This has become order of the day.
People have to choose between bad or worse to elect.The situation does not seem to change.The ray of hope came in with protest by Anna Hazare,Bhushan duo, Kiran Bedi and RTI activist Khejriwal.
Citizens of India thronged Delhi and other parts showing their support for the movement.Government also agreed to draft the Lokpal bill.Then started comedy of errors.They are planning to exclude PM and MP’s.Then for whom is Lokpal Bill.Are we going to investigate the constable who gets 10Rs bribe at Police Chowki.
In no means that is acceptable.But we want to stop the Lion’s share of corruption first.Isn’t it better to uproot a tree rather than plucking leaves of a poisonous tree.Sorry for the harsh comparison.One corrupt politicians corrupts the entire system.
Before government could relax and proceed with the bill, yogic guru Ramdev Baba started his fast for Black money and other demands.
There are more critics for his fast than supporters.People will have trust in you, If you practice what you preach.Anna was Gandhian and rest of the lot were also honest.But there are allegations on Baba himself.
He charges a bomb to teach yoga , travels in his chartered plane and had recently bought Little Cumbrae Island, off the Scottish coast, for about 2 million pounds to build wellness centre.
Ramdev’s business empire includes hospitals, wellness centres, colleges, and of course herbal products. His trusts are worth Rs 1,100 crore (Rs 11 billion).He is also being backed by RSS and Sangh groups.This all have diverted the good cause he is fighting for.
Politicians oppose this approach, saying if each one is going to follow the path of protest to get things done why is there a democracy and why we need to follow a process?
Anna & co approached many parties before sitting on a fast.They spoke to deaf ears.Politicians are equally responsible as common man to ensure system (democracy) is not paralyzed.
UPA I gave us RTI.Lets hope UPA II gives us Lokpal and evades corruption and corrupt ministers and allies.There allies need not support them coz people will support them.
Lets hope for a better governed India at least for our children!!!!!
