After the abrupt ending of the fast , Anna announced the possibility of his Team going on political stage to overthrow corrupt government ! It is quite possible that like many decisions, Anna took in the past, were guided by his Team members – Prashant Bhushan , Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai, to name a few , even this one may be promoted by his Team ! Well, it is not a bad idea , in the practical sense as both the UPA and NDA has lost its credit in the common man’s eye and nobody would mind a 3rd party, provided it wins with majority !
Keshubhai , the former Chief Minister of Gujarat and arch rival of Modi was being threatened by the BJP headquarters to stop commenting against Narenndra Modi , time and again . However, shocking the BJP and the nation, Keshubhai Patel has decided to take his fight against Modi to the next level by not only leaving BJP but also deciding to form a new political party in Gujarat,ahead of polls !
It was the former army chief General V.K.Singh who offered coconut water to Anna to break his fast today and spoke at length supporting the cause of the movement and the political move taken by Team Anna to counter strike corruption !
Is there something on his mind ? 😉
Consider it a game lost against the UPA govt or a reason to find political alternative over fasting tactics, Team Anna has decided to call off the fast by tomorrow 5pm ! In a nutshell,one can conclude -‘Silence Speaks’ ! The govt kept silent ,did not respond in any way to the agitation and the result is a clear win over a national level protest.Arvind Kejriwal today, addressed the Government as ‘deaf and mute’ and declared the government will not pass the Lokpal Bill and that they would rather look for political alternatives to fight corruption. 🙁
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 !
Rahul Gandhi has recently visited yet another Dalit village near Allahabad , where he had gone to inaugurate a cancer hospital for children. Seems like he is determined to attract Dalit Voters away from BSP ! Although the last state elections did not yield him any result when he had similarly visited several villages addressing and assuring to relieve poor villagers off their problems,if elected ! Nothing worked for him then ! Wish him all the luck in his yet another attempt . 😉
Almost 19 states had to face the worst nightmare of no electricity for several hours with about 300 trains hit by the major grid failure ! The Power Minister ,Sushil Kumar Shinde , had somethings to be proud about , one he compared India to America where he claimed it takes upto four hours in similar cases while they took lesser time and astonishingly enough he was promoted as the Home Minister after P Chidambaram has been appointed as the Finance Minister! All this happened yesterday, on Tuesday, when about 600 million Indians from north and north-east India were experiencing major load-shedding bringing normal life to a stand-still. Even on Monday, a day before, northern states suffered for several hours due to grid failure and even Delhi , the capital of the country was not spared !
Considered close to the Gandhi family,the media anticipates this as a major reason of he being handed over the Home Ministry! He has,anyways, thanked Prime Minister,Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi for his promotion. 😀 Well, now that Mr. Shinde has been promoted as the Union Home Minister for his ‘greatest achievements’ of creating history, all we can do is pray for nation’s well-being and pray his Ministry does not make it to the Headlines due to wrong reasons ! 😉
It is one of the most critical moments for the Finance Ministry and P Chidambaram has been given the responsibility who has a real tough task ahead!
