It is really wonderful to see so many people take to peaceful protests against corruption across the country and it shows that they really care.
What is the root cause of the government-created corruption? The quality of people whom we elect to represent us largely determines the extent of corruption.
So each one of us who is backing Anna and even those who are sceptical of his methods but are concerned about the rising corruption need to really ask these questions to ourselves
a. Did I cast my vote during the last election? If I did not, I have really made it possible for the wrong guys to enter the portals of power. I need to remember that my vote counts just like the vote of any other person
b. And if yes, what were the factors that determined the choice of my candidate?
If I had voted to a person because he/she belongs to my caste or because his/her party offered me bribes or freebies, then I have created my own misery.
Lets reflect on this and declare that we will vote in the coming elections and that we will vote for the person who is honest and who has clear plans to take the country forward.
Only then we will have people at the helm of affairs who are capable of enforcing such bills as Jan Lokpal with the interests of the country in their mind.
