Anna hazare


1. Who is Anna Hazare?

An ex-army man. Fought 1965 Indo-Pak War


2. What's so special about him?

He built a village Ralegaon Siddhi in Ahamad Nagar district, Maharashtra


3. So what?

This village is a self-sustained model village. Energy is produced in the
village itself from solar power, biofuel and wind mills.

In 1975, it used to be a poverty clad village. Now it is one of the richest
village in India. It has become a model for self-sustained, eco-friendly &
harmonic village.


4. Ok,...?

Anna Hazare was awarded Padma Bhushan and is a known figure for his social
activities.


5. Really, what is he fighting for?

He is supporting a cause, the amendment of a law to curb corruption in India.


6. How that can be possible?

He is advocating for a Bil, The Jan Lokpal Bill (The Citizen Ombudsman Bill),
that will form an autonomous authority who will make politicians (ministers),
beurocrats (IAS/IPS) accountable for their deeds.


8. It's an entirely new thing right..?

In 1972, the bill was proposed by then Law minister Mr. Shanti Bhushan. Since
then it has been neglected by the politicians and some are trying to change the
bill to suit thier theft (corruption).


7. Oh.. He is going on a hunger strike for that whole thing of passing a Bill !
How can that be possible in such a short span of time?

The first thing he is asking for is: the government should come forward and
announce that the bill is going to be passed.

Next, they make a joint committee to DRAFT the JAN LOKPAL BILL. 50% goverment
participation and 50% public participation. Because you cant trust the
government entirely for making such a bill which does not suit them.


8. Fine, What will happen when this bill is passed?

A LokPal will be appointed at the centre. He will have an autonomous charge, say
like the Election Commission of India. In each and every state, Lokayukta will
be appointed. The job is to bring all alleged party to trial in case of
corruptions within 1 year. Within 2 years, the guilty will be punished. Not
like, Bofors scam or Bhopal Gas Tragedy case, that has been going for last 25
years without any result.


9. Is he alone? Whoelse is there in the fight with Anna Hazare?

Baba Ramdev, Ex. IPS Kiran Bedi, Social Activist Swami Agnivesh, RTI activist
Arvind Kejriwal and many more.

Prominent personalities like Aamir Khan is supporting his cause.
