While Anna Hazare has criticized the new draft of Lokpal Bill by the government, his team member ,Kiran Bedi,said it met most of the demands of a strong lokpal and is a baby step towards the same.Arvind Kejriwal , the ex-Team Anna member and the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ chief has also declared his dissatisfaction with the new draft.
The name,Anna Hazare, got popular with the same Lokpal Bill issue which he wanted to be passed by the government, to curb down corruption in India and the same Lokpal Bill made him head a team called ‘ Team Anna’ and then differences of opinion made Arvind Kejriwal, a prominent Team Anna member split and launch his political party- the Aam Aadmi Party-a political solution to fight corruption in India and all this paced down the India Against Corruption Movement led by Anna.Now it seems like another key member Kiran Bedi has a difference of opinion with Anna.Hopefully,she sticks around with Anna. 🙂
The government,on the other hand, has not only been quite successful in curbing down the much-hyped ‘India Against Corruption Movement’ but has also successfully reduced the strength and impact of Anna and his Team.Kudos to the art of silence of our Prime Minister ‘Maun'(means silence in Hindi)mohan Singh,the India Against Corruption Movement slowly and yet steadily lost its leadership,pace,goal and ultimately the interest and support of usually reluctant to react- ‘Aam Aadmi'(common man). Well,the mystery remains unsolved if it was Team Anna itself or a clever brain of the Govt behind the sabotage of a world renowned movement led by Anna. 🙂
Not only did she take a dip at Maha Kumbh but also seeked blessings from Naga Sadhus-Twitter star,popular for posting bold pictures of herself , Poonam Pandey made it to the news sites again with her snaps at the Allahabad , Maha Kumbh 2013.
After two Indian soldiers were killed and one of them was beheaded,India and Pakistan conflict on the Line Of Control has started.Pakistan alleges that Indian army had entered in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir and killed one of Pakistani soldiers prior to the incident of Indian soldiers being brutally murdered and also denied any involvement.Amid statements from ministers from both the countries,the firing from both sides of the LOC has continued.’Aman Ki Asha’ the phrase which defined a fresh attempt by both the countries to improve relations with each other after the Kargil War has again suffered a major set back.
Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) MLA ,Akbaruddin Owaisi who has been in news for his ‘hate speech’made against hindus,returned from London to Hyderabad,avoided surrendering to police on grounds of ill-health.Hyderabad Police which has been criticized for going slow on the issue went to Akbaruddin’s residence to question him on his alleged hatespeech.Meanwhile,he applied for stay on his arrest in the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
Urban India may not be taking these hate speeches made by political leaders against other religion,caste and state too seriously but is it the same with rural India where the literacy level is comparatively very low. It is not only easy to play vote bank politics by giving hate-speeches against specific communities and groups but also readily possible to provoke violence between groups.
Be it Raj Thackeray making speeches against Biharis or Akbaruddin Owaisi making speeches against Hindus,is their sole motive not vote-bank politics? With law in one pocket and few goons in other,there are several political leaders throughout the country who dare the unity of India and yet roam about freely,unquestioned and never accounted for.
