Anna Hazare and India's second war of Independence
Looks like the veteran freedom fighter Anna (Anna Hazare) has kick started the ‘second war of independence’ at the right time. Let’s join hands for a good cause to build a better, corrupt-free India.
Jan Lokpal Bill is a draft anti-corruption bill which seeks Jan Lokpal an dependent body to investigate corruption cases in India.
This bill is drafted by Santosh Hegde (Lokayukta of Karnataka), Arvind Kejriwal (social activist) and Prashant Bhushan (Supreme Court Advocate).
This bill, if put to practice, ensures that any corrupt politician/bearcat will be prosecuted directly by the Lokpal even without Government intervention. The culprits will be sentenced within a year and makes sure the disproportionate evil wealth one accumulated will be confiscated.
The best part here is the Lokpal head is chosen by Judges and representatives of civil society and hence a corrupt officer heading this body is ruled out.
Anna needs support from like minded youth of this nation. Anna is already getting enough attention and support from the likes of retired IPS officer Kiran Bedi, Swami Agnivesh, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Mallika Sarabhai, Amir Khan and counting.......What are you doing????
