“We feel that a comprehensive legation should cover all law enforcing agencies, government officials, judiciary, political leadership of any status, but it is also essential that corporate, business houses, contractor, middlemen and social and political organisation also be include in to the ambit of the Lokpal Bill,” said Guman Singh of Himalaya Niti Abhiyan. Aakarshan Chauhan of YES said they would try to mobilize the young brigade in Himachal to take up the cause as a crusade.

  1. Finally this started. Even I had kept a fast for a day to support this movement. Probably for the first time in my life I was on fast. Just to understand the pain Anna was going through.

  2. We all lend support to the campaign, through we were not able to sit in with the revoluationary team. I feel that himvani should post detailed article on the proposed lokpal system for wider disssmeniation, as many are still unaware.

  3. I heard people telling how during the struggle of independence people who were not participating themself supported the ones who were in the struggle. I wonder how it would have been, during the hunger strike I had the glimpse of that. Many individuals who were not sitting on fast came to us asking for any help, enquiring about our well being, extending their support, foreigners clicking picks. At 11 in the night people came wanting to know if we were alright, policemen asing “theek ho”, in the morning health conscious people stopping to check our well being. This revolution brought a real India to the fore, this is just the thing our country needs UNITY…I’m happy i was part of this historic revolution and will keep the fight against corruption on…JAI HIND

    • “theek ho” !!! how many times have u asked this to a poor guy who can’t afford to buy food corruption or no corruption .getting rid of corruption for a while  is just a temporary  cure of the disease.. it’s not the solution of the ‘Cause’ of the disease.
      so stop blowing the trumpet in victory and try to focus on the cause of the disease.

  4. please ignore my grammatical mistakes, i was too excited to post my views but was really tired after hours of fasting, sorry
