Shri Anna Hazare’s fast for the creation of a strong and independent LOK PAL has entered eighth day today. Needless to say, the fast is having an adverse effect on Shri Anna Hazare’s health. BJP is seriously concerned about the state of health of Shri Anna Hazare.
Bharatiya Janata Party expresses grave concern over the situation all over the country, which is a direct fallout of the deadlock between the Government and the movement led by Anna Hazare. Due to crass mishandling on the part of the government not only Annaji’s health is in jeopardy but annoyed people all over the country also have become understandably very restive. BJP is worried about this overall situation, which is the making of the inept UPA leadership. The bill prepared by the government has proved to be totally worthless.
BJP believes first and foremost situation has to be created where Annaji is able to break his fast as soon as possible.BJP strongly reiterates that India needs a strong and independent LOKPAL where the Prime Minister is also brought under its purview. Also, the appointment mechanism of LOK PAL is independent, transparent, fair and impartial. BJP demands a strong mechanism ensuring transparent, independent and impartial judiciary as well.
BJP is of the firm opinion that due to several scams and scandals unearthed during the last two years this government has totally lost credibility. It has also failed to win the confidence of the Civil Society. The sooner it acts for setting up a strong and effective LOK PAL, the better for the entire nation. The government should no more take shelter in any alibi and respect the constitutional mandate for transparent and accountable governance.
