Team Anna gives up.Fast to End tomorrow !

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 !

Team Anna enters 9th day of Fasting…Govt still not bothered !

Its the 9th day today , when key Team Anna members, Manish Sisodia,Gopal Rai and Arvind Kejriwal (who is also diabetic) have not eaten anything, demanding the government for an independent probe against 14 cabinet ministers! The government seems to be following the strategy of ‘Deaf Ears’ this time, with none from the government even bothering about the fast at Jantar Mantar, in the nation’s capital ! Doctors have been advising the 400 people on fast(including the Team Anna key members) to get hospitalized and Kejriwal being a diabetic, needs a mandatory hospitalization! However, the team has so far declined any medical assistance !  Delhi Police has been reminding the team of their written agreement to get hospitalized in case of emergency and to make sure there is no compromise in law and order due to the Fast held by the Team ! Interestingly, the unofficial speakers of UPA – Mr Digvijay Singh or Mr Salman Khurshid have not been heard making speeches against the Team Anna, anymore! Seems the government is firm this time and not willing to give any importance to the protest ! It would be interesting to see who would give up first, Team Anna or the UPA government! Most importantly, the opposition parties have preferred keeping out this time , probably, after Anna has declared the formation of a new political party , if need be, for 2014 General Elections ! There may be a second reason to it – Political Leaders are counted in numbers who can support Anti-Corruption Movement 😀  ! Rather they be shut to avoid trouble on self ! No one can deny , neither the Congress or BJP , the two major national level parties, have done anything up to the expectations  of their supporters(whenever they have held power) and 2014 elections will surely remind them of changing Indian mentality !

Baba Ramdev joins Team Anna at Jantar Mantar to help gather crowd !

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 !

 

Amidst low turnout Anna indicates formation of “People’s Party” for 2014 Lok Sabha Elections !

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 !

Congress turns arrogant towards Team Anna blaming Govt of being corrupt !

Salman Khurshid, The Union Law Minister , counter-attacked Team Anna to go to The United Nations seeking justice, if they did not believe in decisions of Supreme Court. He blamed Team Anna of raising issues which have been disapproved by the Supreme Court !

No matter how aggressive the campaigns of  Team Anna are, the government has surely been able to detach the interest of commoners from Anna’s movements,slowly and steadily. The constant delays and counter-verbal attacks from government representatives like Salman Khurshid and Digvijay Singh, questioning authenticity of Team Anna and its movements, has left commoners in dilemma !  The parliamentarians (be it in the government or sitting as oppositions) got together (at least in this matter) and launched verbal counter-attacks(and some preferred keeping their mouth shut) on Team Anna and calmed down the ‘aggression’ of  what could have been a ‘movement of reforms’ in Modern India !  The successfully spread the seeds of mistrust for Team Anna and their movements in the brains of commoners , through the same Media which had highlighted Anna as the next ‘Gandhi’ !

Whose efforts  should we appreciate – the parliamentarians or Anna and his Team or the media(which made money airing  Anna Hazare,a hero,initially  and then questioning on the  authenticity of the movement and people attached to it) ?

 

Team Anna begins Fast Today At Jantar Mantar !

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 !

Is it that the nation is turning deaf ears to the social activists and crusaders against corruption ? Has the corrupt system finally won the battle and Lokpal Bill does not seem to be a solution to any problem ? Has the nation accepted that it is the right of the rich Indians to evade taxes and hide the black money in some foreign banks ?

A movement which woke up India an year back slowly seems to have given up in front of the corrupt system! Guess, even Anna Hazare had no that the corrupt system will slow down the movement in just an years time !
