If it were not for Anna,India would not have rallied together in strength to combat Corruption and demand a more impactful Lokpal Bill to make simply every Indian accountable
Ten Days into his Fast now and what is the sole and continuing argument of the Parliamentarians !?…that the Parliament is Supreme and Anna Movement is subverting the Parliamentary Process !….May I ask then how many Processes have been subverted by the Parliamentarians in unholy nexus with Bureacrats,Industrialists and even the Mafia and even overseas forces to amass ill gotten wealth !?
Yes,The Parliament is Supreme as an Institution…but not this lot of self serving Parliamentarians !…so in a Democracy we can only vote them out through Elections that are held every Five years…but what if even our Election Process can be subverted and Manipulated by Money Power,Rigging,Caste Vote Politics,Booth Capturing,Mafia Fear…how do we cleanse our Parliament of any Virus !?…our Democracy is at stake…will remain on just paper
It is abundantly clear that these Parliamentarians see themselves as being a law above the law !…as Times of India headlined today 542 VIPs are making a fool of 120 crore people…. and the ‘I’ would stand for ‘Insensitive’,though I daresay many would have a more stronger and derogatory word for ‘I’….they simply do not want to be made accountable and therefore have placed a diluted Lokpal Bill for debate and discussion where the PM,while he is in Office,the Judiciary and the Lower Bureaucracy are not covered by the Lokpal and even the citizen cannot taken action against any MP unless the Speaker allows it…The Lokpal Committee too will be dominated by Judiciary and Lok Ayuktas will have truncated powers at State Levels…one Parliamentarian from the Congress, Narayana Swamy had the gall to state on a popular TV News Channel that who is Civil Society to decide…and that Parliament is Supreme !….God help us if we have such rigid and prejudiced and arrogant and condescending MPs
When Corruption seeps in to Holy Democratic Institutions,the Democracy becomes an Autocracy by a Few as the System begins to corrode despite the checks and balances in place…all begin to get corrupted….shamelessness and thick skin develops over the years….!….From ‘Parliament and Judiciary is Supreme’ it becomes ‘I am Supreme’
Just Think….One Maratha Powerhorse,Sharad Pawar ,left the Congress to set up the NCP as he was against a ‘foreigner’,Sonia Gandhi leading our nation…..he nurtured PM ambitions….which have been repeatedly thwarted….BCCI,Baramati and Real Estate are his power bastions…but he simply has been unsuccesful in driving and creating a National Force to support him….and the other emerging Maratha Powerhorse,Anna Hazare has rallied a Nation to fight corruption and demanding to bring in a powerful Lokpal Bill
Just Think again….One Senior Citizen PM who leads our Country cries of his constraints because of Coalition Compulsions…This has created a Policy & Reforms Paralysis at the Centre and delayed action against those Corrupt….. and another Senior Citizen,Anna,has rallied a youthful nation to fight unprecedented Corruption and demand an effective Lokpal Bill….Anna for PM ?
On a Lighter but quite serious note as is venting the air all around…Of course our PM is right…how can any Motion be passed when Anna is fasting and not eating !…perhaps we need to bribe our parliamentarians to introduce and pass the Jan Lokpal Bill drafted by Team Anna !….
As I end this Blog at Noon,the PM has just begun his address in the Parliament on the Anna Issue…the matter is yet deadlocked
On Mentalities….Anna remains mentally resolute….Nation backs him rightfully sentimentally….while Parliamentarians remain mentally blacked out to the very Voice of the People who elected them to serve and not be served…I observe that the whole Parliament has closed ranks across political parties to form a protective defensive shield to protect themselves…it was always a People v/s Politicians Problem…only intensifying as Anna raises the pitch as he brandishes Parliamentarians “Don’t Trust them…they have conned us twice already….they live to eat….they are scared they will not get to eat now…..Maal mile Madari koh,nach kare Bundar !”
Cheers !…I’m Anna !
