Let there be firm action against corruption now
It is a matter of great relief and happiness that Baba Ram Dev has broken his fast. This fast followed the high handed and detestable action of the Police at midnight on peaceful demonstrators gathered at Ramlila Grounds protesting against Corruption in the country and demands to bring back black money stashed abroad. It is expected that the Government has now learnt its lessons for its shoddy action and shall make immediate moves against corruption. Similarly, Baba Ram Dev should help and co-operate with the Government to achieve this goal in a peaceful and orderly manner in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution. The frame work for suitable provisions in law should be evolved on the pattern of Joint Committee of Civil Society and Government preferably keeping away the political parties. Further, there should not be acrimonious statements from either side so that this serious matter is handled in a harmonious and effective manner in national interest.
