Why Anna Hazare is fasting now?
Anna Hazare is back to fast at Jantar Mantar.He is fasting now to bring corruption in the government out in open.In addition to his original demand of lokpal bill, this time grievance is the corruption by UPA ministers.
Pranab is corrupt
Now Pranab Mukherjee is our President so immune from being tried for corruption charges but this is the very grievance which team Anna has.They claim that two months ago, evidence against him was produced in front of Sonia Gandhi and PM Manmohan Singh and in order to save his skin, Mukherjee was nominated to the big post which he eventually secured.In an interesting show of satire, they have covered Pranab Mukherjee’s photograph with a veil alleging that by nominating him for President, this is what Congress has done to hide his acts of corruption.
15 Ministers of UPA are corrupt
It’s not only Pranab but other ministers in the cabinet against whom team Anna claims to have evidence of corruption. “162 MPs in Lok Sabha and 39 MPs in Rajya Sabha have cases of corruption against them. Fast-track courts should be made to dispose off such cases against them”, says Arvind Kejriwal.Kejriwal is leading the agitation this time while Anna will join them only on 29th July.
