Fast, Session and Suspense!
Team Anna is just not keeping quiet! This is despite the fact that Anna Hazare is yet to break his vow of silence. So the crusader against corruption writes a letter to the Prime Minister of India saying that he will begin his third fast unto death if a strong anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill is not passed in the coming winter session of Indian Parliament.
Today the date of the winter session of Parliament has been declared. It’s going to start on November 22.
The Government has officially wondered today why Team Anna is not waiting for the session to happen and see how things proceed. The Government had promised to pass a strong Bill on many occasions recently and Team Anna had been demanding the same repeatedly.
Are these just pressure tactics or blackmail or an effort to hide the internal conflict within Team Anna?
Whatever! The only result is suspense building up day by day. Racing to a climax which may or may not actually deal with the evil that everything seems to be centered on now. The people of India who are against corruption must keep an informed watch.
Could it be a case of Now or Never? Hardly!
