Why Jan Lokpal Bill cannot be debated in Parliament

Thieves and corrupt politicians sitting in Parliament have been putting hurdles in passing of Lokpal bill for last forty years and they are enjoying the fruits of power for their self and for their kith and kin. They ignore public who voted them to power. That is why now People of India led by
Anna has come forward with a Lokpal bill drafted by them.
Government says that it cannot accept the draft of common men or civil society members because it is against the spirit of the Parliamentary democracy. They plead that the government draft has been referred to Standing Committee of the Parliament. Who are the members of the committee is also to be seen.

Thieves and corrupt persons sitting in Parliament and who have been consistently earning and accumulating ill earned money and becoming richer and richer cannot be expected to pass a stern and effective Lokpal Bill. They have been applying their cleverness rather to postpone the bill for last 40 years Now when under pressure of public agitation they have submitted the lokpal bill before Parliament , they have rather introduced provisions in their Bill to punish to those who complain against corrupt politicians and corrupt officers. They have been consistently and willfully using “democracy” and “Secularism” as a tool and as a gun to shut the mouth of weeping, tortured and aggrieved public and shot the person, party and society who raise voice against the corrupt politicians. They have been consistently trying to puncture the movement of Anna as they did Ramdeo Baba’s movement against Black Money .

These clever politicians ( government flatterers ) fired at peaceful demonstrators at Ramlila Ground on 4th June in midnight where Mr. Ramdeo was sitting in fast to lead a movement to bring back black money .These clever politicians tried their level best to trap and torture Ramdeo , Bal Krishna Acharya , Anna and their supporters on flimsy ground… These cleaver politicians tried their level best to disallow Anna’s fast and left no stone unturned to prevent Anna and his followers raising voice against Government.

Government talks of Standing Committee, parliamentary democracy and adequate time to pass the bill. Government has lost credibility because they talked, discussed and debated various provision of proposed Lokpal bill along with members of Civil society Members and drafted a joint bill but while presenting the bill in Parliament, they completely ignored the ideas and views of Civil Society members.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says that in such a short span of time as suggested by Anna Team, such a vital bill as Lokpal Bill cannot be passed by Parliament. I wish to mention here that this Parliament which is being used as a tool to hide the malicious intention of the government was never used during last seven years of UPA rule even to discuss the important bills like Finance Bill or any other bill. Parliament passed the bill pertaining to rise in their salary and perks in a day or two. Indira Gandhi Changed the basic structure of the Constitution by 42nd Amendment bill without any discussion in Parliament. Hundreds of bills are passed every year without any debate and discussion. Parliament is used for mutual mug slinging but not in constructive discussion. If there is a will, there is a way. Government has not exhibited their will to pass the strong Lokpal Bill. Their actions and activities clearly indicate that the government is determined to crush the movement of Anna and postpone the making of bill as long as possible.

But, here I wish to warn the government that this time people of India have awaken from their deep slumber and they will now ensure that their will of strong Lokpal bill is fulfilled by hook or by crook. It is a bitter truth that government never understand the demands made by common men or an organized union until their peacefully placed demand is followed by agitation and violent agitation. They realize the gravity of the genuine demands only when some private and public properties are burnt , some innocent men are sacrificed and so on. This government does not try to understand the sentiments of common men but try to divide them by hook or by crook. The issue is how to eliminate corrupt people from the system AND NOT who are THE POLITICAL PARTIES SUPPORTING Anna. It is only when the Parliament has failed to pass the desired bill for last 40 years , need of the hour is to leave all works aside and work day and night to discuss and debate Jan Lok Pal bill and pass it in the Parliament to exhibit their effectiveness in practice.
