With the rising danger to key Team Anna members’ (Kejriwal,Sisodia and Gopal Rai)health due to continued fasting and after being requested by eminent people like Anupam Kher,General VK Singh , Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and many more , Anna has decided to call off the Fast tomorrow at 5pm.
In between, he was heard asking people of India as to what should Team Anna do? Should they continue fasting or not ? What an absurd question to absurd set of people ? Had we been sensible enough to know what Team Anna should do , probably, we may have never needed some movement of this sort, in the first place?
The conclusion to the fast has however, been really practical one. Anna has decided to answer back political corruption, politically ! This means the formation of a new political party and the promotion of the same by Anna Hazare is decided ! This is no age of fasts and continued fasts and its not the British who are ruling India now. These fasts will never shake the corrupt leaders and the corrupt system unless it is replaced politically and completely by fighting and winning General Elections !
Baba Ramdev, the yoga guru, who is also considered a marketing guru by critics has joined Team Anna as their Rescue-Ranger to add numbers to the thinning crowd at Jantar Mantar !
Well, undoubtedly Baba Ramdev has a steady number of followers and being the sole face (unlike Team Anna) to represent his issues in front of the nation and govt , he is more organized and has sustained any and many attacks, the government has made on him via Digvijay Singh !On the other hand, Team Anna which includes about 7-8 people, considered core team members , are an easy prey to be dragged into controversies because of their own lack of co-ordination !
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 !
Team Anna’s starting date of fast,25th July, coincides with Parliament’s Monsoon Session hence Delhi Police has denied permission to the team to hold their indefinite fast for Lokpal Bill and Corruption!
