BRING AN EFFECTIVE JAN LOK PAL BILL – ACCEDE TO THE DEMANDS OF ANNA HAZARE AND OTHER MEMBERS OF CIVIL SOCIETY
Hon’ble Manmohan Singh ji,
Prime Minister of India
We, citizens of this great country, have suffered enough due to corruption. We are deeply hurt and disappointed with lack of a real and meaningful solution from you and your government to control this menace.
We want change, we want accountability and we cannot wait any longer as we have already waited for 48 years for a Lok Pal Bill. We will not vote for you if an effective anti-corruption bill is not enacted. Not the farce Lok Pal Bill proposed by your government, but the peoples “Jan Lokpal Bill”. We want strict and effective punishment for the corrupt. They MUST go to jail! Or you Mr. PM, along with your party, will fall from the people’s grace. We assure you, stand by us, and we will stand by you. The opposite will also hold true.
Your government has appointed a Group of Ministers to draft the Lokpal Bill. This GoM include- Sharad Pawar, Veerapa Moily and Kapil Sibal. Mr. Pawar and some other leaders of his party have and are facing many charges of corruption. Strangely, Sibal does not feel that there was any corruption of loss to nation exchequer in the 2G allocation.Having these people draft the anti-corruption law – is it not an insult to the people of India? How can the corrupt be asked to draft an anti-corruption bill? We urge you to consider the choice put forth by the people – credible names such as Justice Santosh Hegde, Shashi and Prashant Bhushan and others should be part of the committee to draft the Lokpal Bill or the bill proposed by them should be adopted.
Shri Anna Hazare, one of the Greatest Social Reformers India has ever seen, has started a Fast Unto Death beginning today i.e. April 5th and so have thousands of ordinary citizens of this country. His demands are extremely beneficial for the bright future of India. We urge you to immediately accept the demands of the people of India represented by Shri Anna Hazare lest the discontent among the people grows out of control.
The sentiments against rampant corruption in this country are quickly becoming as strong as those that led to the uprising inTahrir Square (Cairo, Egypt). The government should also remember the upsurge of 1977 when the ruling Congress was uprooted for smothering the democracy and should not reinvade such a situation. The honest and hardworking people of this country refuse to be mute spectator in the public looting of public money that is taking place under your leadership. Some spots have also been put on your clean shirt in the case of appointment of Suresh Kalmadi as Chief to supervise the CWG, after removing late Sunil Dutt, the then Sports Minister. Finding of the inquiry being conducted by the Committee will bring out the truth to the fore.
We request you immediate and strong response to this concern of the people as corruption should be the top priority of your government. If the challenge is not met effectively and promptly, it has the potential of undermining every valuable effort made by upright citizens of this country over the last century – including you.
We trust you will take immediate steps to give and not force us to take the above steps. By doing this, you will be doing great service towards the motherland and will ensure an honourable place in the history.
