A Symbolic Victory: "The activists on the panel — Anna Hazare, Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal and Santosh Hegde —would of course know that they are dealing with past masters of obfuscation —Pranab Mukherjee (chairman), P. Chidambaram, Veerappa Moily, Salman Khurshid and Kapil Sibal — and that the government's decision of an order, which can be withdrawn, as against a gazetted notification, may well only be a tactical ploy to buy time."

Say no to corruption: "Can electorates be managed? Can they be seduced by poll gifts and populist promises? Or is corruption an issue?

If not, then why they have not booted out yet the draconian colonial Indian police laws which allow their mere servents to turn into their masters? What nonsense independence every year we celebrate when most of the prevailing laws are still colonial? Do Indians had only problem when they were under the boots of Britishers? Who cares when they are under the boots of their own native invaders? Indian followed Gandhigiri when they fought against astronomical powerful British empire. Why are we still follow Gandhigiri when we can make laws to crush the head of native invaders under our boots? Ironically Indian governments does not adhere to the Gandhigiri, rather they follow the footsteps of colonial brutal police state.

‘Corruption, poverty denying India tag of prestigious nation’: "High levels of corruption and poverty and the ‘appalling’ way in which Indians treat their women ‘disqualify’ India from being a true superpower and a nation with prestige"
Why Indian laws need to treat corruption as sedition: "IPC was written in 1861 by the British. Their aim was to economically plunder India. Anyone who resisted in those efforts was a traitor and his activities were declared as “sedition”. Unfortunately, after independence, we continued with the same system. Under our present legal system, economic plundering of Indian revenues and Indian resources is a petty offence called “corruption”. But anyone who resists that or has “disaffection” towards such practices is guilty of “sedition”.", "Nira Radia tapes show how many journalists, many businessmen and many politicians conspired to threaten economic stability of India; how they threatened the constitution of India by putting the cabinet berths of Indian government on sale?  But the British laws under which we work do not treat this as sedition.", "Dr Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India, fully knew that Raja was looting the nation. It was the constitutional duty of Dr Singh to stop that. Rather he turned a blind eye. Subsequently, the Prime Minister even tried to protect Raja’s misdeeds in various ways. He sat on the request of Dr Subramaniam Swamy for more than eleven months seeking permission to prosecute Raja. Then, the CBI directly working under the Prime Minister did not do any investigation in that case for almost a year after registering FIR despite strong displeasure expressed by Supreme Court on several occasions. CBI got into action only when the Court decided to monitor CBI’s investigations. Isn’t this sedition? However, the British laws under which independent India functions, do not treat such serious charges as sedition.", "Dr Singh is guilty of criminal conspiracy under section 120B read with Prevention of Corruption Act.", "They are giving licenses for mining, not because these minerals are needed for India, but for exporting most of these minerals. The state gets a royalty of Rs 27 per ton of iron ore mined, cost of mining is roughly Rs 300 per ton and the mining company sells it in international market at Rs 6000 per ton.", "Royalty rates are fixed by central government. Licenses and permissions are given together by both central and state governments. Aren’t all these honorable Chief Ministers, who are openly plundering the national resources, in collusion with various ministries of Central Government, guilty of sedition?", "They are doing precisely what their British predecessors did. Loot this country and take the wealth out of the country. Since we work under the same British laws, their loot is not a serious crime but anyone who dares to “hate” their activities or resist them and incite “contempt” or “disaffection” against such open loot of the country is a crime."

Truth will set all of us free: "will it be nearly enough to combat the levels and extent of corruption in India will be the question that many will ask about the draft Lokpal bill which the government proposes to table shortly"
Indian corruption backlash builds after 'year of the treasure hunters': "On the front cover of its new year issue India Today ran pictures of four men under the headline "2010 – year of the treasure hunters"."
Lokpal Bill hanging fire for 42 years: "Former chief justice of the Delhi high court and rights activist Rajinder Sachar, however, says the Lokpal Bill is “shamefully toothless and meant just to give a false reassurance to the people that the government is serious in its fight against corruption”."
Walls of stone: "No one can possibly dispute that the last year of the first decade of the 21st century has been India’s year of unending scams, scandals and shame.", "After Indira Gandhi achieved supremacy in the Congress and the country her henchmen started believing that they had earned the right to enrich themselves with impunity. ", "In short, the all-embracing corruption in this country is constantly intensifying, reproducing and perpetuating itself on an ever-increasing scale. At some stage quantity will turn into quality and bring to the world’s largest democracy the worst possible catastrophe."
Zero tolerance, secret billions: "Sonia Gandhi the widow of the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was controlling secret account with 2.5 billion Swiss Francs (equal to $2.2 billion) in her minor son’s name’. The $2.2 billion account must have existed from before June 1988 when Rahul Gandhi attained majority. The loot in today’s rupee value equals almost `10,000 crore. Swiss banks invest and multiply the clients’ monies, not keep them buried. Had it been invested in safe long-term securities, the $.2.2 billion bribe would have multiplied to $9.41 billion (`42,345 crore) by 2009. If it had been put in US stocks, it would have swelled to $12.97 billion (`58,365 crore). If, as most likely, it were invested in long-term bonds and stocks as 50:50, it would have grown to $11.19 billion (`50,355 crore). Before the global financial meltdown in 2008, the $2.2 billion bribes in stocks would have peaked at $18.66 billion (`83,900 crore). By any calculation the present size of the $2.2 billion secret funds of the family in Swiss banks seems huge — anywhere between `43,000 plus to some `84,000 crore!"
