Anna Hazare’s anti corruption movement is in full swing in India to make India corruption free. Anna has boldly declared that it is an other freedom struggle but now it is against corrupt people of our own society to make the common people free from their shackles.
Corruption is immaterial for the rich and ruling class as they can afford any thing whether inflation or anything else. But what about the lower and middle class of people that form more than 90% of Indian population. It is this class of people which is badly hit by corruption. Each and every government department from top to bottom is found to be corrupt practically realised by each and every citizen of India. The common man is put to lot of hardships and it has become difficult to make both ends meet as prices of essential commodities are rising constantly due to corruption. Anna believes that our freedom which we got at the cost of sacrifices of lacs of people of this country is at stake due to corruption and unless it is uprooted, the country will not be free in its true sense. Therefore, a peaceful war has been started against corruption with the help of immense support from people.
But the question arises why this movement is being opposed by the ruling party and their supporters? The ruling class boldly declares that Anna Hazare’s anti corruption movement is unconstitutional and un-parliamentary which cannot be accepted in a democratic set up like India. But why this ruling party forgets that the very first word of the Preamble of our Constitution i.e. “We, the people of India...” makes is abundantly clear that Constitution is not separate from the people who have sworn it. Parliament is nothing but a house of representatives of the people. Then how can this movement of people throughout the country be blemished as un-parliamentary or unconstitutional?
It is very strange in the Indian democracy that the ruling party is ruling over the country having only 15-20% votes in their favour and opposing this mass movement of people in India. If a person thinks rationally it is evident in India that 90% people (may be 95%) belong to lower and middle class and these people are badly hit by corruption. Rich and ruling class can afford corruption in any situation. Rather this rich and ruling class prospers only due to these bacteria of corruption. Who does not know the names of various big corrupt poliotician, ministers, officers etc who are under trial but nothing is happening. It is a common phenomenon in India that some people adopt corrupt practices and amass uncountable wealth. In turn wealth brings them power. And with this power and wealth, these corrupt people govern over the country keeping the lower and middle class at back foot.
Jan Lok Pal Act is nothing but a sort of deterrent over the people who are in the government in any position i.e. politicians, ministers, officers, judges etc. If a person performs his duty in duty bound manner, there should not be any fear of any deterrent. Tough Opposition by the ruling party against this anti corruption movement is indicative of malafide intentions of the corrupt people in the government. Why not deterrents should be there in the democracy? How many examples can one quote regarding punishment of corrupt people who have been awarded severe punishment by Indian Courts? How many examples one can quote about confiscation of this immense wealth of a single corrupt person? Name any politician who have made efforts or raised voice against the thousand lacs crores rupees black money in swiss banks? Whose money is this? How many people know about it? From where was this black money earned by these corrupt people? They have sucked the blood of this poor and middle class of India and when someone like Baba Ram Dev raised the voice, how the innocent public was thrashed by police in the name of law and order in the midnight. Just think who were the people who ordered the police to fire tear gas shells and lathi charge over the sleeping people taking part in the movement? Is this Indian democracy which provides everyone fundamental rights enunciated in the constitution?
Just think, if the people like Anna Hazare have started to view a better tomorrow for common man with no corruption in India, What is wrong? What was Gandhi Ji doing for our independence? What was his motive? Isn’t Anna has the same motive, of course this is a fight against corruption which has become rampant in all spheres of our society.
Really in Anna Hazare, people of India see emergence of another Gandhi to fight against the virus of corruption. Anna Hazare’s movement is purely based on non violence like Gandhi Ji’s movements for our freedom struggle.
Let us make ek koshish, one attempt to make this movement a success for our bright future and prosperous India. Look at the pictures above, if they are happy to see this movement at its baby stage, just think about their happiness and development when we will have our country corruption free...... again a golden bird.......
