As government introduced the Lokpal Bill in Parliament, Anna Hazare and his team members on Thursday burnt copies of the Bill with the Gandhian asserting that he would go ahead with his fast beginning August 16 till a strong law is brought in.
Mr. Hazare and his supporters burnt copies of the Bill introduced in Parliament this afternoon in Maharashtra’s Ralegaon Siddhi while his supporters Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi led the protest in Uttar Pradesh’s Kaushambi area in Ghaziabad.
Amidst sloganeering against government, Mr. Hazare said it was the last chance to eradicate corruption from the country and that the protest should be organised all over to ensure that a strong Lokpal Bill is brought in.
“This is a bad and weak Bill which is introduced in Parliament. We need a new and strong Bill. I trusted them when they said they will bring a strong law and ended my fast in April. They cheated me.
“But at the protest starting from August 16, I am not going to withdraw from my fast on some assurances. What we need is a strong bill,” he said.
        01)  No doubt without the relentless efforts of Team-Ann Lok Pal Bill wouldn’t have been introduced in Parliament, Today!

        02) Having said that, ‘either my way or high way’ stand is not a matured attitude, to carry with while representing public interests;

           03) We should, now, allow the collective wisdom of our law-makers to take a call on the final shape of the Bill;

         04) Once, when the Bill becomes an Act., there would be Lok Pal in place and in due course after watching how this institution performs, we can always try for amendments!

           05) Ultimately, it is the Political Parties and the Parliament that makes laws for us!!
