PM a good man, problem with remote control: Anna
If a prime minister of a democratic country cannot work independently then he should quit immediately citing the reason for his leaving the chair. But, in Manmohan Singh’s case we do not see that happening for reasons he knows better than anybody else. The famous social activist Anna Hazare termed Manmohan Singh a good man, who is unable to work properly for being controlled remotely by his party. The individual goodness of a person is useless unless his goodness is utilized meaningfully for good of the people.
Hazare spearheaded the fight against corruption forcing the government to form the drafting committee of Jan Lokpal Bill with public participation. He was in Bangalore for garnering the support for his the Jan Lokpal Bill, where he stated his view point on the Prime Minister saying he is a good man but the Congress High Command is not giving him freedom to work against corruption. I think most of the people in the country would agree with the contention of Anna Hazare, yet they would not want the PM to continue as he is constrained to work with his wish. In the public meeting at Bangalore’s National College grounds Hazare made it clear that any obstruction in drafting the Bill would be opposed by appropriate protests. He is ready to go back to Jantar Mantar for launching the fresh initiative in this respect if the need arise. We can recall that his fast unto death gathered huge support from all walks of life and the government at the centre had to concede to his terms in drafting the Jan Lokpal Bill. The scheduled plan of drafting the bill, introducing in the monsoon session of the parliament, and passing it on the coming Independence Day would be made possible, Hazare said.
There is no doubt about the full-fledged support from the people of this country and we hope this time the bill would go through, as the political parties would not take chance to identify them as the black cats for the bill.
