Strategy-makers of Anna team made their first mistake by singularly opposing Congress candidate in Hissar Lok Sabha by-election without waiting for winter-session of Parliament by when Prime Minister had promised to legislate a strong Lokpal Bill, that too despite the fact that none of the three key-contestants had a clean image.
Opportunity could be better utilised for a more meaningful demand of putting button for ‘Right to Reject’ on Electronic Voting Machines.
Despite even Prime Minister complimenting Anna Hazare for initiating crusade for a strong Lokpal Bill, veteran social-activist claiming himself to be true Gandhian used words like ‘gang of four’ in his blog for some members of Union government.
Such harsh words were never expected from a person whom the complete Parliament gave a standing salute. Anna’s statement on alleged misuse of RTI Act was also untimely.
Kiran Bedi should have gracefully and instantly acknowledged guilt in respect of inflated travel-bills at first instance without waiting too long in deciding to return excess-fare charged to concerned ones.
Anna team also failed to realise that there is a vast difference in life-style of Delhi and Mumbai.
Delhi has a culture of participating in public-protests, while Mumbai with faster life has no time for such participation of public in ground-protests.
However failure of Anna’s Mumbai fast has encouraged politicians who have to be corrupt under present defective electoral laws.
