The Driver and the Driving Force for the Anticorruption Movement: Anna Hazare
We the people of the country had been suffering from the corruption for many years. It is not exaggerating to say that most of us had suffered from this ailment or evil. It is ubiquitous in nature, deeply rooted in politics and buearocracy and almost everywhere and every aspect of life. Every now and then, we say to fight against corruption, but who comes forward and takes the initiative and it goes in vain. But this time, you can’t escape from supporting movement against corruption, because the movement was lead by 72-year old Kisan Baburao Hazare, popularly known as Anna Hazare. He is on fast unto death for a stronger anti-corruption law (Lokpal bill), and he is the most visible face of the movement that is garnering growing support.
He worked in the army as a truck driver, spent most of his time reading about Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and Acharya Vinoba Bhave. It seems he is greatly influenced by the above noble persons. After his voluntary retirement, he came back to his village which was into drought, poverty and alcoholism. He inspired the villagers to take rural development initiative that helped to construct canals, tanks that improved the irrigation facilities in the village.
The Gandhian leader decided to serve the society, has tasted the success by bringing down corrupt minister to resignation in different governments in Maharashtra.
The movement was supported by sincere, honest, retired IPS officer kiran bedi and former CEC JM Lingdo, bollywood actor Aamir khan and NRI’s and general public. With his fasting unto death decision, moved people of Delhi and Maharashtra. Initially, it started with few people and received tremendous responses from the masses in and around 200 cities in India. And the number may go exponentially within short span of time. National media also revealed that Hazare movement received phenomenal support from the general public in the country. My friends this is the time to raise your voice against corruption and join the movement and support Anna Hazare’s intention to draft strong Lokpal bill. And I request the public including students, friends, employees, lawyers, teachers to spread the movement in each town and city. So that we can pressurize the government to take action on the Lokpal bill.
I hope the movement is going to be more bigger n bigger than ever, and I request all the citizens must join the movement and carry out agitations in support of this movement. This is the time to show our strength and integrity to fight against corruption.
Here, we got a great Gandhian leader who can bring freedom from corruption, so folks better never than late, join the movement and bringforth corruption free country to our people for better future.
