Why is the Congress government afraid of Anna Hazare? Why did it choose to put him behind the bars as if he were a criminal? Isn’t this a case of the real criminals putting the whistle-blower behind the bars?
What Anna Hazare is doing is to bring as much transparency into Indian political governance as far as that is possible. What is wrong with that?
The government’s version of the Lokpal bill was obviously meant to protect certain people from its purview. It becomes too obvious to the educated and politically conscious people in the country that the government is trying to render the Lokpal powerless and meaningless. How long will the government keep on fooling such a lot of people?
It becomes very clear that the Congress is trying to shield certain corrupt people and their black money stashed away abroad. It becomes very clear that the Congress is anti-people.
The way the party went about privatising whatever it could, selling the shares of Public Sector Units, selling the land, mines and rivers to the private sector – selling the country, in short – gives us enough hint about its intentions. Anna Hazare is a threat to such intentions. Hence he should be cleared off.
The corrupt leader wishes to put away all honest leaders of the people.
The people of India may not tolerate this kind of politics anymore. The protests that have erupted all over the country are a proof.
Revolutions have broken out for lesser causes.
