Anna Hazare Showing Political Colours

By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee

Just a few weeks back the entire nation was under the grip of the Anna moment. His fast was being telecast live 24 hours a day. The popularity of his 21st century Satyagraha was so much so that Dhoni and his men getting drubbed 4-0 in a Test Series in England didn’t invite any attention! But against the script Anna Hazare who was being see next to Mahatma Gandhi and Jaiprakash Narayan has put a wrong foot. Now the man who has become the face of the fight against corruption has put his stamp on a non-Congress, non-BJP government at the centre.

As a free citizen of a free country he is entitled to freedom of speech and has got as much political rights as any of us. But he was being seen as the great crusader behind whom high flying IT professionals as well as the roadside cart puller stood together. Why on earth did he make such an immature statement? Now this entire statement will be seen as a political conspiracy by those belonging to the two main parties in India and those supporting them. Can Anna Hazare say that all those who joined him in the crusade were non-Congress and non-BJP people? Who is Anna to decide whom do we vote for?

He seems to be over optimistic about a non-Congress and non-BJP government and says he would support clean leaders. Now considering the true picture where very few people would have such kind of an image Anna might lend support to a M Karunanidhi, Sharad Pawar, Lalu Prasad Yadav, J Jayalalitha, Mayawati or even an illiterate Rabri Devi. Are these namesthe ones we would see as our Prime Minister? I would still vouch for a Mamohan Singh, Arun Jaitley or LK Advani. Poor job Anna, you let us all down :(

Everything has a cause my dear friend. Everyone wants a name for himself. So does Anna. Even the clauses in the Lokpal Bill state that the person was fighting for stardom rather than transformation.
