What Would Happen If A Strong Lokpal Bill Is Passed And Implemented?

Yes we see lot of people not happy to implement a strong Lokpal bill. There are many reasons behind it. We the common people of India are fed up of corruption and unhealthy practices seen in our day to day life. We want to have things in system. We go to an RTO office to get a simple transfer done and we go directly and submit the documents, but we do not get our work done because we are not going through an agent who in turn acts as a middleman to pay money to all the officials involved.

This is seen in almost every state, every Govenment department. There are middlemen who make money and there are officials who do not do their duties without getting bribe.

All these people will not be happy with the implementation of a strong Lokpal bill. We will see most of the politicians not wanting this to happen. Why do people get into politics? Do they have any intention to serve the people who elect them and sent them to the Parliament? No, most of them are getting into politics, spending tons of money to get elected and loot the people of the country. There are very few politicians and officials who are not corrupt and have good intentions, but the majority are opposite.

Anna Hazare is going ahead with his planned fast in protest to the toothless Lokpal bill which does not cover CBI and is without Citizen’s Charter.
