Those who can not be honest with private money of persons with pious intentions are fighting against corrupt practices of politicians dealing with public money. What a great tragedy!!!

Anna Hazare

In India, a movement is going on against political corruption in the country by a so-called Gandhian Anna Hazare, who himself being uneducated does everything through proxies - one person fakes his email account, another writes a blog in his name, and a coterie of 4 advises him what to say in public and when to reverse the statements. In-spite of all this, he never comes openly admitting his deficiencies and fake personalities.

He is being driven by persons who have political ambitions of their own and will do anything to shine in public life and even follow corrupt practices of the lowest level to achieve their objective. At their behest, Hazare once declared he would either talk to the Prime Minister of India or Rahul Gandhi, thus showing his bankrupt attitude by equating a directionless boy to the Prime Minister of India. No doubt, even the current Prime Minister is also quite misguided in his performances in dealing with economy of the common people, though he is said to be an economist.

Corruption at Personal Level

Now a days, it is highlighted by newspapers of India that one woman ex-IPS officer while being in driver's seat of Anna Hazare vehicle, attended seminars organized by anti-corruption enthusiasts in the country and charged them with her air travel bills inflated by about 1000 percent, thus pocketing huge amounts of money of common people fighting against corruption under leadership of persons like her. In fact, she traveled by economy class while billing at business class rates. Further, she took benefit of traveling at 25% of usual air fare but charged the people with full fares.

Now, with the scam being public, she has defended herself by saying that the money so got went to her an NGO run by her. She even offered to refund the excess money to the paying organizations. Even Anna Hazare also defended her through his faked blog. The people so cheated by the ex-IPS officer and so-called fighter against corruption are simple enthusiasts who want to make their country corruption-free but were taken for a ride in a highly immoral way by the lady. Those who can not be honest with private money of others, how they can be honest if given authority to deal with public money?

I do not agree with the tone and content of this article. It would be obvious to any discerning Indian what your political affiliation is. It is unfortunate these things are discussed in an International forum. I have said my piece and do not want to argue further.
