Kangra (Himachal Pradesh), June 23 (ANI): Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday alleged that none of the political parties were serious to combat corruption. Kejriwal, who arrived with Manish Sisodia here to attend an anti-corruption rally, said the country's main opposition, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was not serious in its fight against corruption.
"The BJP is indulging in politics. If they are so serious then why do they not create an effective law for the creation of the office of Lokayukta in Himachal to combat corruption? Why are they not creating an effective anti-graft law wherever they are in power? They are only playing politics. All the parties are playing politics," he said. Kejriwal added that the demonstrations undertaken by the BJP were "drama."
"Whom should the people of Himachal Pradesh go to? A third alternative has to emerge from among the people because the politics that is being played by both the BJP and Congress is having an adverse impact on the country. Neither BJP nor the Congress wants to fight against corruption. All these rallies and demonstrations are only drama," he said.
The Right to Information (RTI) activist urged the people of Himachal Pradesh to participate in their campaign against corruption. "We will once again fast from July 25 at Jantar Mantar. When there will be fast at Jantar Mantar, then all the people from the villages of Himachal Pradesh will have to come out and support us," Kejriwal said. (ANI)
This is what I have been saying all along.
The BJP was exposed by the way they handled the the Lok Pal bill in Parliament.
None of the parties are interested in ending corruption.
If Swami Ramdeo and Anna are really interested,they should start selectingcandidates who can stand for elections and further their aim.
However, the way Swami Ramdeo has been hobnobbing with politicians like Sharad Powar, it seems he has already thrown in his towel. So Anna is our only hope.
