Anna's crusade against corruption is apolitical

It is unfortunate that some of the Media barons are making imaginary assessments of Anna's Team instead of objective analysis of the Anna's crusade against corruption.Anna's core issue right from the beginning has been introduction of a strong Lokpal Bill for which he and his team had held prolonged meetings with the Government's team of Ministers. You would recall that almost after every meeting the Ministers went back on the decisions arrived at. This forced Anna to call the Ministers and Government unreliable and he was forced to undertake the fast. When the Government realised the sensitivity of the issue and the mass public support against corruption, it agreed to introduce Lokpal Bill which it had avoided for more than 40 years.

2. Civil Society had declared its movement apolitical which they still uphold. The move against Congress in Hissar elections was precipitated by Congress Party's lack of assurance to support Janlokpal Bill whereas all other contesting parties had given the undertaking to support. So the action of Civil Society in campaigning against Congress does not make them political.In fact the UPA Government has lost its credibility by its unusual Behaviour where Prime Minister says something and Digvijay Singh says some thing different. The resignation of two members of Anna team cannot crack his mission. As regards attacks on Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal, these are a part of well designed conspiracy by the corrupt opposing forces to deflate the movement. The Media's efforts to divide the Anna Team and mislead the public is a sort of paid news and will not succees.
