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’
