Low turnout at Jantar Mantar , supporting Team Anna’s fast , has indicated nation’s falling interest in the Team’s activities . Meanwhile, Anna Hazare has indicated the importance of launching a new political party People’s Party !
Guess, Team Anna has understood that the times of British and Gandhi ji is no more hence those old methods of raising voice against government policies and corrupt leaders will never work !
Team Anna members – Manish Sisodia,Arvind Kejriwal and Gopal Rai are beginning their fast at Jantar Mantar,today, in demand of a Special Investigation Team to probe charges of corruption against 15 Cabinet Ministers.Anna has been requested not to fast on Health Grounds , however, it is learnt that he would be sitting on fast from 29th of the month provided the government does not listen to their demands by then!
Interestingly, a parliamentary committee will hear a complaint against Arvind Kejriwal, key Team Anna Member,on 12th and 26th March of this year by two Congress MPs – Sajjan Singh Verma and Jagdambika Pal,accusing Arvind of passing derogatory remarks and defaming parliamentarians ! 🙂
Till date, Team Anna has not got any major success as the Government has been playing very smartly, tackling the issues of Corruption and passing of Lokpal Bill, as and when , Team Anna has picked it up ! Rather they have been buying time since 2010 . It would be interesting to see the result of this fast of the Team !
Baba Ramdev has threatened to go on protest from August 9th onwards, in Delhi, on the issue of Black Money which he wants the UPA government should bring back for the nation’s well-being ! Last summer, similar protest was organized by Baba where many followers of him had gathered at the Ram Lila Maidan and at mid-night the police raided the Maidan to arrest Baba, following which, he not only had to jump from the stage, as high as 6 feet, but also had to run away from the place to avoid further conflict between his followers and the police !
Meanwhile, Baba has also welcomed the efforts of Congress, giving bigger roles to Rahul Gandhi and said he can also be the Prime Minister and continue at the post but for all that he will have to bring the Black Money back in the country !
Salman Khurshid,the Union Law and Justice and Miniority Affairs Minister and his wife Louise Khurshid travelled to Nashik on June 23rd to meet Anna and request him to remove Khurshid’s name from the list of corrupt ministers released by Hazare and his team !
