As a result a large amount black money could easily take a ‘flight’ to foreign destinations and stashed by several corrupt officials, businessmen, politicians etc. Indian civil society has realised that Indians are still enslaved unnder corrupt government who has already proved limbless on containing corruption. Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev too this bold initiative to awaken the people of India on rampant corruption. Ministers representing government on Lokpal Bill drafting committee have started throwing misleading comments, impressions, casting aspersions on honest members of the civil society. None of the elected members of the parliament could ever come out openly against the ruling government on the issues of corruption. Now the government is holding a hot brick of pressures from civil society in one hand, while trying to keep corruption in place by the other. Civil Society’s draft is simple, straight forward, fit for implementation. In short the government is inviting a stiff stir and revolution from the people of India. This situation will indeed shatter Indian economy and security. We all shall have to pay a heavy price ultimately, and learn good lesson in a hard way.
