Common hands are praying for Anna’s upset health; PM sent an official appealing letter



Well said “if there is a will there is a way”, 74 year old socialist Anna Hazare who may sound weak by his age but his strong will power, honest efforts, and unconditional love for his motherland has made this statement true. Today India’s most burning topic is the revolution started by Anna Hazare to set India free from corruption and make system healthy. On 8th day of his fast, his doctors declare that his health is getting more upset day by day. His blood pressure and other vital signs are getting critical, even Mr. Hazare has refused their advice to get hospitalized. Anna promised to his aid," I am 5.5 kilos lighter...but my doctors will not let me die...you will see”. After his this statement Government is now showing apprehensive and ardent attitude towards Mr. Hazare when it recognized and visualized the support of Indian mob consisting of average person to big guns like lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan. Despite of the scorching sun of Delhi and alternating rain which creates lots of hurdles to sustain for a common man, the number of idiosyncratic supporters of visionary fanatic like Mr. Hazare and Lokpal bill is streaming enormously.

Discussion:
The Standing Committee on Law, Justice and Personnel which combines 31 MPs from different parties are contemplating government version of bill, but lobbyist are not compromising and they said that, this bill has many weak points which can be used by the accused public servants to prove themselves innocent. Later on Dr. Manmohan Singh took a step and said that the Standing Committee on Law, Justice and Personnel will discuss Anna’s Bill also. Law Minister Salman Khurshid realized that time is running out and solution to such crying sensitive affair which is involving whole nation is possible only through talks. Hence the official intervention, negotiation and stipulation were launched at a meeting held between Law Minister Salman Khurshid and Anna's close aide, Arvind Kejriwal. Pranab Mukherjee, the government’s senior most ministers has been empowered and deputized to lead the talk and negotiate with Mr. Hazare’s associates.

The Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh tried to convince Mr. Hazare by sending him a letter at his battlefield (i.e. the Gandhian's massive sit-in at Ramlila Maidan). In his letter he tried to move and influence Hazare to terminate his fast and said that the Indian government is very worried about his upset health status which arises due to his continuing fast. Dr. Manmohan Singh tried to persuade him by affirming that Parliamentary Committee will ask permission from Lok Sabha speaker to study his version of anti-corruption Lokpal Bill

Final Note:
Dr. Manmohan Singh also told that he and Hazare are on the same boat, they both are having same goal, same aspiration and same mission of removing the pest of corruption from the system but their approach and framework of this is bizarre. But he will try to delete this distinction and will fight this battle against corruption. He even congregates with Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi to discourse and pontificate about this burning subject
