India – Shri Anna Hazare’s Health and Government Inaction

August 22, 2011

Government inaction on Jan Lokpal bill is rejection of republic will.

The government explanation for ignoring the overwhelming public plea to pass Jan Lokpal bill is not convincing and procrastination does not serve in public or national interest except benefitting political agenda.

This strategy is undemocratic.   With the nation behind Jan Lokpal bill, the reluctance to expedite legislation clarifies the government apathy for people suffering,

Notwithstanding the economic liability burdened on the youth and struggling segments in the society.

If the ruling power and the opposition alike do not have any inclination to disavow corruption rampant in politics and across the society,

Then the Indian electorate could exercise the democratic right to replace their representatives with members pledged to the nation and the citizens rather than submitting to foreign subjugation.

As for the constitutionality clichéd in the ruling power’s defense in declining people’s request on anti-corruption law,

It is poignant to raise the question –

Is promoting dynastic rule declared democratic in the Constitution?

While civil movement leader Shri Anna Hazare’s vision for corrupt free society denigrated by ruling authority comparing the Gandhian to fallen Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and Communist ex-premier Mao Tse-Tung,

Indian governance emulating Italian model under Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and deteriorating further in adapting former Prime Minister Benito Mussolini’s hardline leadership exhibited during brutal clamp down of peaceful participants – men, women and children beaten at night unbeknown by police force per incumbent authority’s authorization at Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev’s anti-corruption rally on June 4, 2011.

Subsequently apprehending the non-violent and peaceful dissenter  – 73 years old Shri Anna Hazare absconded to undisclosed location prior to imprisonment in Tihar Jail on August 16, 2011 is indeed a grave concern for the oppressed world’s largest democracy.

Furthermore, Congress Party complicity in the Sri Lankan government genocide of ethnic Tamils with logistic assistance to Sri Lanka in the mission,

Accompanied by honoring the Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa as the chief guest at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi despite the Sri Lankan leader’s atrocities in the ethnic cleansing of Tamils in Sri Lanka –

Confirms the Congress Party leadership’s blatant disregard for Indian nationals plight and humanity at large.

In light of these extreme measures and reckless decisions the ruling party has lost legitimacy as a democratic government and the oppositions complacency largely contributed to abuse of power defying citizens’ call for accountability on national issues.

Unless corruption, nepotism and cronyism is uprooted from the political apparatus – the epidemic source in the society,

Indian progress will not reach the vast majority desperate for liberation from economic woes, social injustice and now political oppression.

Shri Anna Hazare’s health is understandably precarious on the 8th consecutive day of fasting and,

The government determination to deny the citizens freedom from corruption through Jan Lokpal bill proves the political establishment has lost credibility to govern the nation founded by Mahatma Gandhi and many venerable leaders’ sacrifices.

Indian citizens and expatriates around the globe ought to be commended for their relentless campaign against corruption and solidarity in the crusade sets precedence to the rest of the world.

Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh and opposition leaders could resolve this national crisis immediately with the acknowledgment of Jan Lokpal bill to address the systemic corruption crippling the society.

Reiterating the urgency to adopt Jan Lokpal bill as the viable solution to curb corruption and resurrect ethical conduct in daily life.

Shri Anna Hazare ending fast is vital for the leader’s survival and national unity.

The government and opposition leaders political fate is largely dependent on their humble outreach to heal the nation’s pain endured in the corruption riddled system by legislating Jan Lokpal bill.

If the leaders at the political helm hesitate in eradicating corruption, then the youth of today to be leaders tomorrow are prepared to bear the torch in the unique rebirth of modern India.

Citizens’ voices will be heard with people power prevailing in national cause.

Shri Anna Hazare’s dream for Jan Lokpal bill could soon be a reality with the united front from all walks of life maintaining momentum until Jan Lokpal bill becomes the formidable act in deterring corruption.

Please join Shri Anna Hazare – the inspirational force committed to universal peace and prosperity.

Jai Hind!

Peace to all!

Thank you.
