16th August 2011.

All of the country seems to be sitting on a boiling pot named “JAN LOKPAL BILL”.  The way Congress launched venomous campaign against Anna Hazare , it clearly shown Congress in a bad light and also Indian democracy. All the Congress spokesperson talked like they are in a Akhada and willing to do any rada. The senior minister like Kapil Sibbal , Ambika Soni were totally out of their conscience.

               Even today in the parliament Congress  party MLA’s were adamant that the house will not run. What message this act of cowardice give?  People should remind that these are the people whom they elect. How come common people believe that the bill will pass unscathed?

               It is the rulling party who has all the right, what bill they will present. Cleary I felt ashamed to witness all this, in a country where democracy is the supreme.

                If at all congress felt that the proposed bill is not worthy, then let us have a fair parliament session, why govt is so afraid of the bill , since they have all the ultimate power.
                Even Anna said that, Parliament is supreme authority. They just want to make sure that the support for this bill will grow.
