Cartoon on Arvind Kejriwal resigns as Delhi CM
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. 🙂
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 !
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 !
Arvind Kejriwal, who was on fast along with Anna and Baba Ramdev, stormed out of the venue after Ramdev objected to Kejriwal taking names of MPs in his speech, which the yoga guru said was against the fast protocol.
In his speech , Arvind Kejrial mentioned that MPs like Lalu Prasad,Raja and Kalmadi would never pass the Lokpal Bill.Baba Ramdev however,took the microphone,after Kejriwal and tried to manage the damage with his speech!
