(Do read the end)
On Thursday October 4, 2012, a friend of mine mocked Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement saying its end is very near. Call it a mere co-incidence or whatever, just the next day, team Anna members Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan exposed how Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, received properties worth Rs 500 crore at a cheap rate from DLF in return for favours received from Congress. The anti corruption crusaders indirectly replied on my behalf that the movement is far from over!
In order to prove their claim, the activists also presented proofs in the form of documents they obtained from registrars of the companies. It takes great courage to openly come out against someone who is family to someone so powerful. I am saying this because we all know, since last year or so, how the current government has proved itself to be no different than the British rulers.
Else, how can you justify Vadra’s name among those who are exempted from frisking at all airports in India? (see 1st picture). In fact, his is the only name that is mentioned in the list whereas the rest are only the names of positions. A shining example of misuse of power by the Congress chief in the worst possible way to facilitate her family!
Coming back at the activists’ claims, as expected, the whole of Congress, in one voice, have rubbished them off while saying all silly things to Kejriwal and Bhushan. Some are acting as per Madamji’s strict orders while others are trying to impress her. Nice try! Of course, just like the shameful coal scam, the government isn’t allowing any probe else it might create problems for them. If this isn’t the case, why not call for at least an independent probe by the CBI in the case?
Ever since Kejriwal decided to form a party, I have found him to be a bit too aggressive and at times over-the-top. However, now I am starting to get convinced that one needs to meet fire with fire while dealing with such anti-national forces.
Of course, Hazare is not a part of the party as he has a difference of opinion on it. This isn’t a ‘split’ among the group as extensively reported by a section of media gone corrupt. Although Hazare and Kejriwal might be on different roads but their destination is the same – to end corruption.
There are a large number of people who aren’t supporting Kejriwal’s decision of forming a party. In fact, there are plenty who have never supported this anti-corruption movement. I would like to narrate a fictitious scene to them – A group of dacoits have been looting a village since years. They are determined to continue looting it in the future as well. On the other hand, there are people who are trying to stop the loot and get the dacoits punished. Whom will you support? The choice is yours!
