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. 🙂
Anna and Kejriwal not,Bedi ok with new lokpal bill draft
Abhijit Mukherjee,Son of President of India and Congress MP had created controversy making a remark on Delhi Gangrape protesters.He claimed that the women protesting did not look like students instead looked ‘dented-painted’.Smelling intense criticism and chaos he seeked unconditional apology and Congress declared no action against him as he had already apologized for his remarks.
No action by Congress against Abhijit Mukherjee’s sexist remark on protesters of Delhi gangrape
More than his and Congress’ image,it is his father,President of India-Pranab Mukherjee’s image which Abhijit Mukherjee has hampered with his irresponsible statement on protesters of ‘Delhi gang rape’.
BJP winning 12 out of 19 Muslim vote bank dominated seats in Gujarat has given a strong message to the ‘Secular’ Congress party and has also indicated that the Muslims in Gujarat have moved beyond 2002.Interestingly,BJP did not give ticket to any Muslim candidate yet the miraculous support to Modi should let the Congress and other parties, who claim to be SECULAR,get the message that “aam aadmi’ (common man) needs a govt which delivers and not just sympathize in the name of minority community and schedule caste and tribe.

Mr U.S.Mishra,former CBI director accused pressure from government particularly while he was handling former Uttar Pradesh CM,Maywati’s,disproportionate assets case.As expected the government has denied any such allegations and has blamed it on BJP which was in the government at the time when Mr Mishra was the director.BJP on the otherhand says it is the Congress government which controls the CBI(Central Bureau Of Investigation) and uses it against political opponents and to keep allies in check.
CBI controlled by govt-ex CBI director
