But this raises questions:
Isn't it a serious paradox, that two persons with dubious records and intent have already been inducted into the group, which is all set to launch itself as a political party, set to fight corrupt political parties, and inject ethics and fairness into politics?
What gainsay is there, that this seminal party will not fall into the vortex of greedy men and women, and take the same road like other politicians?
What will the typical nature of this party be, in addition to internal Lokpals, which should be lauded indeed?
Instead of a political pary it could have been a national NGO as watchdog with a loose hierarchy with a core group as main functionaries. Admission into the organization should be strict, with rigid screening process for members. Numbers do not matter, it is the integrity which does. This organization should work for at least five years before thinking of contesting elections. In these five years it should solidly emerge as an above board organization, on strict nationalistic lines.
Development of the country should be top on the agenda, earmarking developmental goals such as education, poverty, food demands and supply, suggestions to tackle insurgency, corruption at all levels, how to tackle this, political cleanliness and electoral reforms etc.
The group has taken the plunge, it claims to be above board. First it must prove this, because eyebrows are already being raised against it. India, after all is not a 'Nation of fools'!
