Anna Hazare and Jan Lok Pal Bill
Critics Rating:Users Rating:
Anna Hazare is an ex-army man who fought in the India-Pakistan war in the year
1965. Hazare built a village "Ralegaon Siddhi" in Ahamad Nagar district, Maharashtra. Ralegaon village is a self-sustained model village using energy is produced from solar power, biofuel and wind mills in the village itself. Now Ralegaon is one of the richest villages in India which was in poverty in the year 1975. Ralegoan has become a model for self-sustained and eco-friendly village. Anna Hazare was awarded Padma Bhushan for his social activities.
Hazare is supporting a cause for the amendment of a law to curb corruption in India. Hazare is advocating for a Bill, The Jan Lokpal Bill (The Citizen Ombudsman Bill), which will form an autonomous authority who will make politicians (ministers), bureaucrats (IAS/IPS) accountable for their deeds. In the year 1972, the bill was proposed by then Law minister Mr. Shanti Bhushan but since then it has been neglected by the politicians and are trying to change the bill to suit their theft (corruption). Hazare is going on a hunger strike for that whole thing of passing a Bill. The first thing Hazare is asking for is that the government should come forward and announce that the bill is going to be passed and they make a joint committee to draft the "Jan Lokpal Bill", 50% government participation and 50% public participation because you can"t trust the government entirely for making such a bill which does not suit them. A LokPal will be appointed at the centre and will have an autonomous charge. In each and every state, Lokayukta will be appointed and their job is to bring all alleged party to trial in case of corruptions within 1 year. Within 2 years, the guilty will be punished.
Let us all come together to support this noble cause and get rid of corruption.
