Lokpal bill passed

Lokpal bill has been passed by Lok Sabha yesterday. It is a bill which is consistent with times. It is a bill which was fought for, valiantly by Anna Hazare.
Why is this bill important? Under UN Convention, whistleblower policy is a welcome policy. India also needs to follow UN convention and therefore important. In India Lokpal Bill is an extension of this UN guideline. Anna Hazare, the great leader of modern times, the digital times has advocated for it.
Is justice going to be easy? No. Political parties have a strong clout. They consider themselves superior to common man and therefore unless a common man truly deserve justice under Lokpal, political parties will oppose.
Can there be improvement to Lokpal Bill? It will be difficult. All the people have to make Lokpal effective and should cause fear in government. Only then. It may be noted here that Anna Hazare will be observing the effectiveness of Lokpal in various states.
Most of my blogging time has been devoted to following Lokpal issue. It makes me happy that Lokpal issue has become a law.


  1. This is a good start, but enforcement is crucial. Besides, I feel that change has to come from down-under. If people change, it will be reflected on the political spectrum. People who believe in corruption will only elect corrupt politicians.

  2. But whom they vote for is not known. Political parties take advantage of it; do not believe their own voters and exploit them. Many staunch and guaranteed voters have been back stabbed severly. I have records of it.
