Loads of people been coming up and telling me that supporting the bill may not be the brightest things and it may end up being even a bigger monster. So instead of explaining to each one I decided to put it down here. My guess is if you ask anyone what this bill constitutes, they wont have an idea-its the case with most mass campaigns and that's what happens with elections, create hungama and hysteria and you will have enough support. But in this case and I can atleast talk about myself, I support the movement because it tells the Government "I can't be taken for granted". I vote, but I still get idiots to "Govern" me, because the other idiots dont go and vote- I feel helpless. This is a platform for me to voice my opinion. Also, it atleast prevents the Government from passing a hogwash bill which is a bill "Of the Politcians, By the Politicians, For the Politicians".
The Jan LokPal bill is more vigilante in nature and it has it has drawbacks with serious repercussions. And protesting for it does not mean that it has to be accpeted in absolute. A bill to curb corruption does not have to be either that drafted by the Politcians or by the Civilians-it can be a middle ground.
I am surprised that people think it is either this way or that- I am sure even Anna Hazare would accept a solution of a bunch of people constituting the Government and the Junta sitting and drafting a truly effective and implementable bill.
The good thing here is that the people are not willing to take things as is.
