Are you concerned about lakhs of crores ofpublic money being siphoned away? Money that could go for better roads, schools, health, etc. now ends up in personal benami and foreign accounts of politicians and bureaucrats. Would you like to do your bit to change this?

Ethical and eminent Supreme Court lawyers, retired judges, senior activists/writers, and concerned citizens have drafted a powerful Anti-Corruption Lokpal Bill which has been presented to the government to get it passed by the Parliament.  However, the government is dragging its feet!  (No surprise.)

So, come 30th January 2011, a massive number of people will march on the streets of New Delhi and every major city in India demanding the government to enact the Lokpal Bill which will also reform the state government Lokayukta Acts.

So is namma Bengaluru! We were earlier known to be citizens of the 'Intellectual' Capital of India but is now being referred to as the 'Corruption' Capital. We were the first to express our disgust against Corruption with 'Saaku (Enough!) Corruption' last December. And now when the whole country has woken up, let us join in to deliver a lethal blow to the evil of corruption.

Please join us in this totally peaceful march with your family and friends. Please spread this message to others friends and email listsso that more people can show solidarity to the powers that be that the people of India are united.

we definitely need stronger instituions to check corruption in the government. but most of the big corruption cases involve corporates too, like in the 2g scam. who will monitor them and how? and what of cases like bhopal? is that not also a type of corruption bu union carbide? will these bills this coalition proposes take care of that?

assuming only politicians and bureaucrats are responsible for corruption is irresponsible.

Agree that this needs to be more comprehenisve - just one more law is not sufficient. The whole judiciary needs to be more streamlined and efficient - but at least they are trying !

 

Best of luck folks !
