In Lokpal issue some latest developments shows Indian Parliament (Loksabha & Rajyasabha) is supreme and "Anna Hazare" & his "India Against Corruption" can't controlled our democracy from street or ground, also Trinamool Congress (TMC) 's stand proves correct.

In last week of 2011 some important developments take place in Lokpal issue.

The government’s version of the Lokpal Bill was passed with a voice vote in Lok Sabha on Tuesday, 27th Dec’11.

      Facing a cold response to his dharna politics in Mumbai, anti corruption activist Anna Hazare called off the three-day fast and the jail bharo movement on Wednesday, 28th Dec’11.     

On 29th Dec’11, Mamata Banerjee & her Trinamool Congress has once again forced the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) & others to accept its demand to delete the Lokayukta clause from the Lokpal Bill being debated in the Rajya Sabha.

Actually we all wants India without corruption but for that our elected representatives are debating at our parliament, also I salute Annaji for his fight against corruption but lately he became puppet in the hand of few persons who has some vested interests and he tried to became second “Gandhiji” of India and thus tried to dicted our parliament what is not accepted by peoples of India as a result we saw empty MMRDA ground during Annaji’s fast.

This low turnout was a proof of Hazare's decreasing popularity in spite of back door support by Bampanthi (Lefts) & Rampanthi (BJP). It’s barely a day old and is already being dubbed a “flop show.” A few thousand showed up at the MMRDA grounds at Mumbai, a scarce 500 rallied in Delhi, and an embarrassing 29 fasted in Chennai and in Kolkata they can’t even able to organized this event.

Hazare and his team decided to stick to their opposition to the Congress-led UPA government despite the ruling combine having taken forward the lokpal, judicial accountability and whistleblowers bills separately that figured in Team Anna's wish list.

Significantly, they refrained from criticizing the BJP, SP and the BSP, which opposed various provisions of the bill in Parliament on 27th Dec’11.

When asked why he and his team were not criticizing the BJP, Hazare left the press conference in a huff.

Earlier he gave a deadline to parliament to pass Lokpal bill and also he tries to dicted parliament for his version of Lokpal bill.

Clearly these things have given wrong signal about Annaji also in last few months several corruption and charges have risen against his team.

Also as per our constitution parliament is the place for making laws of our country and our elected representatives are there to make it. This things may take time but this is the right way in a parliamentary democracy… laws should be made at parliament not in the street or ground… and it should be made by elected representatives only not by the self declared guardians of society.

Another significant thing is TRINAMOOL CONGRESS (TMC) ‘s stand to keep our federal structure intact.

Participating in the debate on the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Bill, 2011, at Rajyasabha Sukhendu Sekhar Roy said, "party leader (Mamata Banerjee) has directed us to oppose the bill to the extent" it seeks to encroach on autonomy of the states.

He said the party has moved amendments to delete the clauses (63 to 97) of the bill, which deal with setting up of the lokayukutas in the states.

"I would request the government to delete chapter three (related to Lokayukutas) in its entirety," Roy said.

TMC has six members in the Upper House where the UPA does not have a majority.

Roy said the bill in its original form did not have the provision relating to the lokayukutas.

"Suddenly and surprisingly it became lokpal/lokayukutas," he said, adding finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, conveying the 'sense of the House' on August 27, had asked whether states would want separate law for the ombudsman.

Roy said the TMC was with the government, but its opposition was to the extent of the lokpal bill seeking to encroach states' autonomy.

He said TMC is opposing the bill on merit and the party did not join the 'jamboree outside where vaampanthi (Left) and rampanthi (BJP-RSS)' joined hands.

He said even before parliamentary Standing Committee, which went into the bill, several eminent jurists had suggested preserving states' autonomy.

Please remember that Trinamool also support corruption free India and it is the only major party in India which doesn’t have any corruption charges against them.

  1. Today in Rajyasabha, the discussion is based on lokpal has asked for 37 changes....then why did TMC accepted this in loksabha...? We can now clearly understand that,,, TMC wants to take away its support from Congres....... TMC,, all over India,,, basically has no identity other than Mamta Banerjee....The members all over India of TMC should have their own identity instead of depending on her...Other than Mamta Banerjee, their is no member in loksabha or Rajyasabha who has the courage to stand for the right or can take a valid decision. If TMC wants to have a distance from congress, then it should have it right from now and not after the loksabha elections....

  2. In loksabha Trinamool ’s chief whip Sudip Bandopadhyay over looked the Lokayukta provision and concentrated only on Lokpal issue..
    Due to his & Kalyan Bandopadhyay ‘s mistake Trinamool supported total Lokpal bill without consulting party high command..
    Today show cause letter will be issued to both of them… And now on wards Trinamool ‘s stand will be united and same in all front…
    Remember Trinamool support Lokpal bill but they differ on Lokayukta issue.. Except that chapter rest of bill is supported by Trinamool.
