Is the Anna Campaign making an awareness campaign to weed out corruption
in the system,No: The eminent people in Anna's camp ought to be aware
of the ccorrupt practices in our society which also needs to be
corrected.Team Annas think tank is harping on one point of JLPB, the
deate on this must continue but experts are of opinions that we as a
society must stand firm to weed out corruption. Jail, punishment and
other violent actions are against Gandhian philosophy. Leaders must quit
their office, profession on their own if found deflected from their
path of welfare and irregularities committed as prevalent in Japan,
Europe and other developed countries.Leaders with black records must
also be ostracized by the democratic institutions and society.
