Has Anna Hazare forgotten his anti-courrption crusade?
Anna Hazare came into lime light by his crusade against the corruption in 2012-13 which is eating into the vitals of this country. Indian youth, fed up with this corruption right from top to bottom joined his campaign like fish getting into water.

There was a special session of parliament and the Congress-led UPA Government promised lot of things to contain corruption in India. A Jan Lokpal was to come up. CBI was to function under this lokpal. States were to have their Lokayuktas. A Citizen Charter was to be announced.

More than two years have passed now. A new government is in power at Centre but nothing much has happened for the deep seated corruption in the country at the lower level. Agreed that in the last nine months since the Modi government has been in place there has been no corruption or scam at the level of Centre but what about the states?

Aam Aadmi still has to grease the palms which these Sarkari bureaucracy calls Suvidha Shulk to get things done. So what has Anna achieved? Where is Lokpal? What about Lokayukts? But Anna Hazare is now busy lecturing Modi government on what is wrong with the Land Acquisition Bill? He is doing pad yatra.

If Anna Hazare feels that people of this country will not see through his game he is mistaken. His sole aim appears to be in lime light and in media otherwise why abandon the cause of corruption and leave the job half finished?
