Posted on by iSikkim | Category: Politics Slider Post Special Report | 1,791 views | 3 Comments

As the Manmohan Singh led UPA government keeps playing hide and seek with rights activist about the details of draft bill committee, the number of people at the Jantar Mantar is constantly going up and above. The numbers at the Jantar Mantar alone have jumped at least five times in three days with thousands of Anna Hazare supporters increasing joining every day. The number of people sitting on indefinite hunger strike across the country along with Anna Hazare has increased to 155. The people following India Against Corruption through various modes of communication and networking has crossed a million. The likes of the Facebook page of India Against Corruption has more than doubled to around 80,000 in two days. The live tweets supporting Anna are in hundreds and counting.

Here, at Jantar Mantar it’s around 6 in the evening. Over last 6-8 hours at least 5-7 thousand people have been around at any point of time, even as people keep coming and going back. Basic facilities and drinking water tankers have been brought to cater to the ever increasing crowd as hawkers and tea and food stalls are doing brisk business. Hundreds of others men and women can be found sitting in groups of five to ten and voicing their anger to each other.

The mood is more charged than ever. The speeches have become fiery. The slogan shouting has become shriller. And the anger is visible as hordes of people from the whole cross section of society keep coming to Jantar Mantar in Delhi and other parts of the country.

Never before did our generation witness the lines of identity along regional, religious, caste and even class so blurred. It’s become a movement where those who come by car and those come on foot sit together. It’s become a movement where Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and Jains all dance together. It’s become a movement where students and youth from various universities and schools shout together. It’s become a movement where all the activists from across the country and abroad are working for once common cause: wiping corruption out.

What the activists say

Till a day after Anna Hazare sat on the indefinite hunger strike, the government said that it can’t include members from civil society in the Lokpal Bill drafting committee. Talking about it, yesterday in a debate on NDTV’s “Buck Stops Here”, noted human rights activist Medha Patekar who is holding fast in Mumbai said that there is nothing unconstitutional about bringing members from civil society in a bill drafting committee. On the government saying that this exception would set a wrong precedent she said that involving people in deciding nation’s fate can’t be a termed a wrong precedent. In another show “India at 9” on CNN IBN7, Right to Information (RTI) activist Arivind Kejriwal said that there are at least ten occasion when government has taken members from civil society and incorporated their views in various bills earlier. Why the government is resisting it this time? Kejriwal said, “If there would have been an effective Lokpal Bill, many members of the Lokpal Bill drafting committee would find themselves behind bars. The government fears that many of its own people would be in trouble if such a law is brought.” Kejriwal also said that while they are not fighting against any individual, they can’t accept people like Kapil Sibal who gave A. Raja a clean chit in 2G scam. Due to criticism from activist chair of the group of ministers to draft the Lokpal Bill, Sharad Pawar resigned and said that he won’t return to the panel.

The government’s stand

The government today appointed Kapil Sibal to talk to the activist. Two rounds of talk have not yielded any result on which both the side could agree. The government today said that it was ready to have half members from the civil society in an informal Lokpal Bill drafting committee but it won’t issue a notification for the same. A notification would make it mandatory on the part of the government to accept the recommendation of the committee. The activists have rejected the offer of the government. Speaking from the dais Arvind Kejriwal said that the very intention of the government is to misguide the country.

The representative of the government will meet the activist tomorrow morning again.

As the numbers of people supporting Anna Hazare are increasing like a wild fire and media is broadcasting the issue live on TV, there hardly seems any hope for the government. The movement is going to become stronger in the days to come. Tomorrow, members of Delhi Bar Association will work half day wearing black ribbons. The lawyers would come to Jantar Mantar in the second half to express solidarity with the nation in the fight against corruption.

    The “Gates Foundation, which has $80 million worth partnership with Bihar government in health sector, has shown its interest in expanding cooperation in agricultural sector too … said a beaming Gates while lavishing praise on chief minister Nitish Kumar sitting beside him” (Times of India, March 27 ’11). Why does BEGGAR Bihar need Gates’ CHARITY? Tamil Nadu gets Indian currency secretly printed in China which is used for numerous freebies to people — from food to houses to mixers to color TVs to lap top computers, etc. — for bribes to A. Raja and many other things because of which the Tamils have been calling Bihar and U.P. backward and stupid. This is what I said in my Press Release dated January 17, 2011:-

    “In my article titled “A Magical Solution to Disaster Relief” I gave the formula: the government should invite any and all individuals and organizations including companies to “Find a need and fill it and be reimbursed at double your cost” — in normal times a 50% profit may be enough incentive — to provide food, shelter. clothing and services to shanty-dwellers and be reimbursed at 50% over their cost; the only condition should be that the goods and services they provide must be ADDITIONAL PRODUCTION and not taken from existing supplies. The shanty-dwellers can also be employed for the production. The government has an unlimited amount of money simply by printing it so long as it is used for PRODUCTION; see my article “How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year Or More” which can be found by a Google/Yahoo search with the title. The above applies to ALL goods and services to fill ALL societal needs.”

    By suppressing any mention of me in the media via K. Subrahmanyam and C.I.A.-RAW, Tamils have been reaping the benefits of my work while denying them to the stupid North Indians who are full participants in this BEGGARING of India. And how has this BEGGARING of India been done? I have described it many dozens of times in these press releases, such as that dated January 30, 2011 and here it goes once more: “I am India’s expert in strategic defence and the father of India’s strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. In my blog titled ‘Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.’, which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title, I have described how the C.I.A. keeps India poor, weak and enslaved: “India’s greatest scientist and greatest living Indian publicly tortured in Harvard seminar, systematically and totally starved for up to 3 weeks at a time, made semi-starved and homeless and even blind for years, kept under 24-hour audio and video surveillance as well as surveillance of communications and electrical typewriter and computer use, document creation and photocopying, etc., by satellite for more than past 3 decades, systematically harassed and in poverty and neutralised and robbed of his work at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars per year, robbed of crores in his money and property in India by C.I.A.-RAW, forced back into exile in the U.S., all with full cooperation and participation of India’s RAW and India’s C.I.A.-RAW-controlled prime ministers, politicians and media — to keep India poor, weak and enslaved” and how this means the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States.” According to India, five to six nuclear bombs have been prepositioned in various cities/countries such as New Delhi, Washington and New York. Three simultaneous explosions of twenty kiloton each in New Delhi, Washington and New York, with two or three in reserve for destroying additional U. S. cities if there is any retaliation, will end C.I.A.-rule over India. This will enable India to build, within five years, thousands of nuclear-armed missiles capable of reaching the United States and accomplish its coast-to-coast destruction.

    The banning of the book about the homosexuality of M. K. Gandhi — like Nehru a lifelong British agent — who wrote to the white man ‘how completely you have taken possession of my body. It is slavery with a vengeance’ and the media suppression of me and my advocacy of nuclear supremacy for India over the United States both reflect how completely the white man has taken possession of India. It is slavery with a vengeance. In my blog above I have described how this enslavement was done (see ‘Source of Manmohan Singh’s ‘Deep Love’ for Bush’) by the British killing over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857. That the behavior of the enemy’s Indian agents is due to the terrorization and subjugation inflicted on India by the white man does not mean such agents don’t have to be eliminated; in war even soldiers who are too terrorized to fight or advance on enemy positions have to be shot on the spot. The nuclear destruction of New Delhi — the seat of C.I.A. rule through its Indian agents — Washington and New York, followed by the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States, will end this slavery.

    Anna Hazare’s fast, sponsored by C.I.A.-RAW, is meant to keep India ‘Gandhian’, divert attention from what is said above by the greatest living Indian and keep India from building thousands of nuclear-armed missiles to destroy the United States to end its slavery.

    This does not mean that Anna Hazare is a C.I.A.-RAW agent. C.I.A.-RAW instigated the fast & the huge groundswell of support for it and pre-arranged the whole thing with the government, the Congress party, etc.

    India is being kept a beggar and slave by suppressing the greatest living Indian and this will not be allowed.

    After my reference to C.I.A.-RAW having instigated the fast, Hazare wrote to Manmohan Singh:
    “1. It is being alleged that I am being instigated by some people to sit on this fast. Dear Manmohan Singh ji, this is an insult to my sense of wisdom and intelligence. I am not a kid that I could be “instigated” into going on an indefinite fast. I am a fiercely independent person. I take advice from many friends and critics, but do what my conscience directs me to do. It is my experience that when cornered, governments resort to such malicious slandering. I am pained that the government, rather than addressing the issue of corruption, is trying to allege conspiracies, when there are none.”

    Since he was responding to what I said, why did he address his response to Manmohan Singh rather than to me? He was observing the C.I.A.-RAW prohibition that there will be no mention of the greatest living Indian in the media. This shows he is indeed a C.I.A.-RAW agent, not their unwitting tool. The script had called for his breaking the fast with a glass of orange juice from the hand of the white woman who is the beneficiary of most of India’s multi-trillion-rupee scams — to neutralize what I have said about the white man being India’s enemy — and it is going according to the script. He has already expressed his gratitude to the white woman for asking him to break the fast.

    K. Subrahmanyam had staged his fake death right after India said that five to six nuclear bombs have been pre-positioned in various cities/countries. In my blog above I wrote that K. Subrahmanyam may be able to flee to the United States but most of the media people who are participating in these crimes against India and obeying the C.I.A.-RAW prohibition of any mention of the greatest living Indian in the media will not be able to flee.

    Respected Sir ,
    Heard statements made by Congress Spokes person and other Polititions , at the Centre and state levels, on Gandhian Anna Hajareji’s present crusade against corruption menance and it pained and a thought crept in mind “ whether is it really a congress founded by Mahatma Gandhiji or new organization continuing mere name and not the spirit ? “ The smartness & tacties with which they were presenting their views may for time being made one feel – spell bound . The Persons seem to be unknown of the very definition of DEMOCRACY – of the people , for the people & by the people “Messers Politicians and other Mastero Orators in political field please be it known to you that Maharashtra’s famous saint Tukaramji’s one abhang [ stanza of his preachings ] says “BOLE TAISA CHALE TYACHI VANDAVI PAULE “ means “ SALUTE THE PERSON WHOSE ACTIONS – DEEDS – AND – SPEECH – PREACHING HAVE RESEMBLANCE “ . Do you think that Public which is inheriting such preachings of renouned saints and genuine democrats [ alike Swami Vivekanandji , Lokmanya Tilakji , Gopalkrushna Gokhaleji , Mahatma Gandhiji , Vinobabhaveji , etc. ] of India will become victims of your treacharious , self centred & anihilatory speaches ?
    Be there an encacted law to cover that – M.P.s & M.L.C.s should have knowledge of Democratic Laws & Constition of India together with blotless CHARACTER & back-ground. Let there be panels , formed at Centre and State Levels , of PROMINENT NON-POLITICAL CITISONS [ a BODY TO BE RE-CONSTITUED AT EVERY TIME ON ANNOUNCEMENT OF A FRESH PARLAMENT OR LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS ] who to INTERVIEW people opting for elections and only persons fulfilling basics to be allowed to contest. Next stage to eradicate dominance of Influential Top Political Party Office bearers MAKING COMPULSORY- EVEN WITHIN A POLITICAL PARTY – “ ELECTION OF CANDIDATES ALREADY CLEARED BY BODY / PANEL OF EMINENT CITIZONS ” .

    Anna’s efforts and support of the people on India on the cause must be applauded,

    It was required to rally around and initiate the steps to put an end to corruption which has been rampant with Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi Congress at the helms. This is the most corrupt government which the people of India have seen.

    Its not just that there should a anti-corruption bill but its also time for the Liar PM and his cabinet to GO .

    People like Kapil Sibal say its undemocratic the efforts of Anna and the fast.
    What did Mahatma Gandhi do? Were all his satyagraha’s and fasts undemocratic.

    Mr. Kapil Sibal needs to apologize to Anna and the nation for his out of line remarks and statements. He should start by submitting his resignation.


    This is the voice of the people of democratic India
