Anna Hazare

1. Who is Anna Hazare?

An ex-army man. Fought 1965 Indo-Pak War

2. What’s so special about him?

He built a village Ralegaon Siddhi in Ahamad Nagar district, Maharashtra

3. So what?

This village is a self-sustained model village. Energy is produced in the village itself from solar power, biofuel and wind mills.

In 1975, it used to be a poverty clad village. Now it is one of the richest village in India. It has become a model for self-sustained, eco-friendly & harmonic village.

4. Ok,…?

This guy, Anna Hazare was awarded Padma Bhushan and is a known figure for his social activities.

5. Really, what is he fighting for?

He is supporting a cause, the amendment of a law to curb corruption in India.

6. How that can be possible?

He is advocating for a Bil, The Lok Pal Bill (The Citizen Ombudsman Bill), that will form an autonomous authority who will make politicians (ministers), beurocrats (IAS/IPS) accountable for their deeds.

7. It’s an entirely new thing right..?

In 1972, the bill was proposed by then Law minister Mr. Shanti Bhushan. Since then it has been neglected by the politicians and some are trying to change the bill to suit their theft (corruption).

8. Oh.. He is going on a hunger strike for that whole thing of passing a Bill ! How can that be possible in such a short span of time?

The first thing he is asking for is: the government should come forward and announce that the bill is going to be passed. Next, they make a joint committee to DRAFT the LOK PAL BILL. 50% government participation and 50% public participation. Because you can’t trust the government entirely for making such a bill which does not suit them.

9. Fine, What will happen when this bill is passed?

A LokPal will be appointed at the center. He will have an autonomous charge, say like the Election Commission of India. In each and every state, Lokayukta will be appointed. The job is to bring all alleged party to trial in case of corruptions within 1 year. Within 2 years, the guilty will be punished. Not like, Bofors scam or Bhopal Gas Tragedy case, that has been going for last 25 years without any result.

10. Is he alone? Whoelse is there in the fight with Anna Hazare?

Baba Ramdev, Ex. IPS Kiran Bedi, Social Activist Swami Agnivesh, RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal and many more. Rominent personalities like  Aamir Khan is supporting his cause.

Anna Hazare

Ok, got it. What can I do?

At least we can spread the message. How? Putting status message, links, video, changing profile pics. At least we can support Anna Hazare and the cause for uprooting corruption from India.

At least we can hope that his Hunger Strike does not go in vain. At least we can pray for his good health.

Salient features of Jan Lokpal Bill:

1. An institution called LOKPAL at the centre and LOKAYUKTA in each state will be set up

2. Like Supreme Court and Election Commission, they will be completely independent of the governments. No minister or bureaucrat will be able to influence their investigations.

3. Cases against corrupt people will not linger on for years anymore:Investigations in any case will have to be completed in one year. Trial should be completed in next one year so that the corrupt politician, officer or judge is sent to jail within two years.

4. The loss that a corrupt person caused to the government will be recovered at the time of conviction.

5. How will it help a common citizen: If any work of any citizen is not done in prescribed time in any government office, Lokpal will impose financial penalty on guilty officers, which will be given as compensation to the complainant.

6. So, you could approach Lokpal if your ration card or passport or voter card is not being made or if police is not registering your case or any other work is not being done in prescribed time. Lokpal will have to get it done in a month’s time. You could also report any case of corruption to Lokpal like ration being siphoned off, poor quality roads been constructed or panchayat funds being siphoned off. Lokpal will have to complete its investigations in a year, trial will be over in next one year and the guilty will go to jail within two years.

7. But won’t the government appoint corrupt and weak people as Lokpal members? That won’t be possible because its members will be selected by judges, citizens and constitutional authorities and not by politicians, through a completely transparent and participatory process.

8. What if some officer in Lokpal becomes corrupt? The entire functioning of Lokpal/ Lokayukta will be completely transparent. Any complaint against any officer of Lokpal shall be investigated and the officer dismissed within two months.

9. What will happen to existing anti-corruption agencies? CVC, departmental vigilance and anti-corruption branch of CBI will be merged into Lokpal. Lokpal will have complete powers and machinery to independently investigate and prosecute any officer, judge or politician.

10. It will be the duty of the Lokpal to provide protection to those who are being victimized for raising their voice against corruption

  4. DEAR FRIENDS, TO STOP CORRUPTION AND ECONAMICALLY TO DEVELOLPE OUR NATION PLEASE SUPPORT TO MR.ANNA HAJARE

  5. Dear Mrs. Sonia Gandhi

    After Mumbai attack I had written a letter to Mr. Manmohan Singh, with the hope that at least once in life time he will behave like Sardar who were always in forefront of protecting the nation, but he has turn out to be worse than a mouse. I realize you are the king maker, hence I am addressing this letter to you.

    Today you requested Mr Anna Hazare to end his fast. For last one month Mr. Hazare had been writing to you and PM, none of you even bothered to reply. Suddenly you realize that every Indian is with him, and that is the reason you decided to request Mr. Anna Hazare to end his fast.

    Let me ask you few simple questions.

    Why one of the best presidents that is Dr. Abdul Kalam was removed? Isn’t it because he had objected to your becoming Prime minster? In the disguise of giving gift of woman president you selected Mr. Pratibha Patil, her only qualification is that she used to do dishes for Late Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Royalty to Gandhi family never goes unrewarded. If you were concerned with welfare of Indian people you would have selected person like Ms. Kiran Bedi, but you wanted a perfect rubber stamp just like Dr. Manmohan Singh.

    Coming back to issue of corruption.

    Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh has destroyed Mumbai. In the disguise of giving house to homeless he kept on increasing FSI to help builders, so that all the money can be sent to Delhi & Congress can fight election. In last eight year prices of flats has increased three times and now AAM ADAMI cannot even dream of having his own house. Same Vilasrao Deshmukh was fined Rs 10 laks by Supreme Court for helping money lender who was charging poor farmer interest of 10% per month that is 120% per year! Instead of taking action against Mr. Vilasrao Deshmukh he was made rural minister. Funds allotted for rural development is Rs 4 Lakh crore and who could have better person than Mr. Deshmukh to divert the fund to Delhi?

    More than a year has passed. Since Suresh Kalmadhi ‘s role in CWG scam has been exposed. Till today he is roaming free. How long this drama of CBI interrogations will go on?

    Then there is Mr. Rane, minister from Maharashtra. Mumbai high court has passed severe stricture against him for snatching land from poorest of poor and giving it to industrial house. Even Mrs. Indira Gandhi who was never known for her honesty did take action against a former chief minister when he was indicted by high court for corruption, but you who advocate zero corruption did not utter a single word and Mr. Rane continues to be honorable minister.

    There were truck load of corruption charges against Ms. Mayawati, they were dropped when she supported your party during no confidence motion. If you call this helplessness of coalition government, then what about helplessness of a poor person who steals bread for his children, what’s about helplessness of government servant who takes bribe so he can send his children to good school, what’s about helplessness of an officer who cannot afford to buy house in south Mumbai so he indulge in act of corruption?

    Hasan Ali is highest income tax evader not only in history of India but the whole word. Till today he has not been even charged. He has given name of three chief ministers who has helped him. So far no action is being taken against them. We keep on reading that he as support of senior minister from Maharashtra. Why you are silent on this issue?

    In 2G scam besides losing huge money, just think of opportunity lost by our young and brilliant scientist & engineers to be at par with the world. We are second to none in this world, but this cancer of corruption has ruined our body, our mind & our soul.

    Last but not least , what’s about crores & crores of rupees with Swiss bank. How long your finance minister will keep on fooling us? Just with help of a simple SMS sent by Swiss bank, American government could force Swiss bank to reveal the name of account holder, why Indian government cannot do anything. Reason is very simple, if anybody is punished he will reveal the name of all politicians and bureaucrats involved. There is proverb in Hindi “Teri bhi Chup, meri bhi Chup” meaning you keep quiet and I will also keep quiet.

    There is not even iota of resemblance between your word and your action. I will rather trust a prostitute who tells that she is a virgin, rather than trusting your word about zero corruption.

    So much I love India and love my people. I wish my best of best luck to Mr. Anna Hazare. I hope every Indian writes on every currency note that “WE SUPPORT ANNA HAZARE”. If not the voice of people at least these currency notes will reach your corrupt ministers and the parties who are supporting your government.

  6. The only place in India where food is Cheep.

    Tea = 1.00
    Soup = 5.50
    Daal = 1.50
    Meals = 2.00
    Chapati = 1.00
    Chicken = 24.50
    Dosa = 4.00
    Biryani = 8.00
    Fish = 13.00

    These items are meant for Poor People and is available at Indian Parliament Canteen. The salary of those Poor People is Rs.80,000 per month, without income Tax.

  8. Anna You are a BHAGWAN a great crusader against corruption. You showed your machoness against the so called impotent corrupted leaders. Good you declared war against corruption in Pune where govt /farmlands /defence lands have been grabbed by builders like the crimal BRAMHA BUILDERS RAM and AJAY AGARWAL who are welknown for raping, land grabbing from farmers, widow ladies, from orphans. Residency club has beenbuilt on defence land. Le Meridian has been built illegally and the agarwals boast that they can buy entire police department, judiciary,politicians, chief ministers, home ministers,Prime minister Manmohan singh, Sonia gandhi, Atal bihari vajpayee, lal krishna advani, suresh kalmadi. He is welknown for his talks to people that he passes the money from down to the the top. Annaji people have been forcibily evicted from their homes on gun point and their land have grabbed. Annaji we want to end the system of tyranny, rape,loot,forcefull grabing lands, also government lands.He says every govt person has a price tag and they can be purchased or sold. Every police, minister, collector has a price tag. Every one is saleable in India because of corruption.

  9. I am with Anna sir and u know y coz i am admired by my fav person tht is Gandhiji and my name is KEVIN GANDHI …

  10. Seeds of Corruption had been planted in evry nook and corner of INDIA,since Gandhi’s era…we had been watching it from day 1…but hardly anyone bothered or cared..coz we as common people neither had support nor courage to raise our VOICE…but now we have got a strong PILLAR behind us to Support..dats “ANNA HAZARE”..we need people like u SIR..we need someone like u to IGNITE our BURNING DESIRE to make our country CORRUPTION FREE…we SALUTE YOU FOR YOUR GUTS AND COURAGE U SHOWED ….WE ALL ARE WITH ‘U’

  13. it has too good if annahazere realy want to fight againest corruption but as per her views about narendra modi he like a agent of congress for make fool of indian people anna only try to divert mind of indian people from baba ramdev

  14. Who knows tomorrow?

    Kaun Deta Hai Umar Bhar Ka Sahara E Dost, Log To Janaaze Me Bhi Kandha Badalte Rehate Hai

    There is nothing wrong with the Poltician, we are the people who votes them, first of all correct yourself, dont give vote to the wrong person, today Anna have started, there are lot of issues we have in India, there are lot of Anna in every district, this is not the solution, “Andolan” dharna, bhook hartaal, Anna is demanding for new rules which there is not all mention in Sambidhan or law.

    India is a democracy Country and all the decission to be as per the people of India, Anna points are valuable but let the people of India decide wheather his points are regal or not.
    If Anna think that he have got the legal point why not he put all the candidates in MP election and let people of India decide whom to vote, if his party wins he can easly implement the law.
    Suggestion: (Dont make India as Saudi Arabia too much rules will be difficult for the people to breadth freely)

    Note; Anna is fighting for fast track decission ,,,,,,,,, who knows these decission may be full of corruption.
