Anna Hazare
Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare.

The stage is set for a confrontation between the government and the anti-corruption crusaders led by Anna Hazare as theCongress on Friday made it clear it was ready to take on the Gandhian and his band of supporters over the Lokpal Bill issue.
The party favoured a tough stand at the crucial Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting held over the issue on Friday evening.
The reconstituted high-powered CWC in its first formal meeting urged the government to deal firmly with Hazare, who has threatened to go on a fast again from August 16 for a "strong" Lokpal Bill, and his supporters.
Almost all the Congress leaders who participated in the meeting were of the view that a group of four or five people "masquerading as civil society" and their confrontationist attitude was dangerous for parliamentary democracy.
Many members criticised the government for succumbing to the pressure of "four or five people" who had ganged up against the government in the name of civil society.

I, firmly, feel Team Anna should stop threatening with one more 'fast-onto-death' and work with all the political parties to achieve a consensus to enable the to be passed in Parliament!

UPA Government has done all it could do and now the ball is in the court of the political parties!
