Around 5000 people, undeterred by the scorching heat, reached Parliament Street in the heart of the national capital on Sunday morning to show their support for social activist Anna Hazare and yoga guru Baba Ramdev, who are holding a one-day fast in their demands for stronger action against corruption, the return of black money stashed away by Indians abroad and a stronger Lokpal Bill.”I was told it’s too hot; I said it doesn’t matter if it’s hot or cold… this is the beginning of our protest,” Baba Ramdev told the gathering at the protest venue, which is in front of the Parliament Street police station.

Today’s fast comes in the wake of fresh corruption allegations made by Team Anna against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and 14 of his cabinet ministers.

“The Prime Minster should not just be honest himself, he should be democratically, constitutionally honest. Mr PM you must keep your cabinet ministers honest too,” said Baba Ramdev today.The yoga guru hit out at the government, saying, “The ruling party says the country doesn’t run by protests, laws are not made on the streets. They say they are representatives of the people… we say the law of the land says the people are supreme… We have laws that were foisted on us by our British rulers…we need new swadeshi laws.”

“If netas are not corrupt, why are they shying away from making a strong Lokpal Bill,” he added.

Today’s protest marks a year of the police crackdown on Baba Ramdev and his supporters in Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan while they were protesting against black money. The police action had led to the death of a 51-year-old woman Rajbala. At the fast site today, pictures of her were on display.

The protest, which is expected to end at around 6 pm, is also likely to see Baba Ramdev announcing his strategy in the 2014 general elections.

Baba Ramdev started his journey from the Azad Hind Gram, Teekari village near Mundka early this morning and then went to Rajghat, where Mr Hazare joined him. The duo then paid a tribute to India’s freedom fighters at Shaheed Park before proceeding towards Parliament Street.

The police have permitted a gathering of 5000 people. A senior police official said they have made elaborate arrangements. Besides Delhi Police personnel, 20 companies of paramilitary forces will be deployed in the area.

Baba Ramdev’s Bharat Swabhiman Andolan will also organise protests in various state capitals today.

Ramdev was accompanied by his close aide Acharya Balkrishna, while Team Anna members Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi accompanied Hazare. The association with Baba Ramdev had in the past created ripples in Team Anna with a section remaining opposed to have any truck with the yoga guru as he is facing corruption charges.

“We will discuss how to take forward the movement against corruption today,” Mr Hazare had said at Maharashtra Sadan earlier in the day.

Ahead of the fast, both Mr Hazare and Baba Ramdev have stepped up their attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Mr Hazare had said that Dr Singh has lost faith in government while Ramdev alleged that the Prime Minister was not “politically honest”.

August 18th, 2011

India’s ruling Congress party,
facing one of its biggest political crises in years, spent much of Wednesday
negotiating with Anna Hazare, a popular anti-corruption activist who refused to
leave his jail cell until he reached a deal early Thursday.

The negotiators’ task wasn’t helped by tens of thousands of his supporters,
who gathered in cities and towns across India, chanting, banging pots, waving
flags and holding candlelight vigils in support of the septuagenarian devotee of
Mohandas Gandhi.

The anti-corruption crusader finally struck a deal with police to hold a
15-day public hunger strike against graft, ending the bizarre standoff at a New
Delhi prison where his brief detention had turned into a sit-in protest.

Police had initially given Hazare permission to hold only a three-day public
hunger strike, which he refused, but they eventually relented and agreed to
allow him to hold a 15-day protest, which was to begin Thursday afternoon.

After he struck his deal with police, the hundreds camped outside the jail
erupted in cheers, threw flower petals in the air and shouted “Anna has
won!”

The government gained little politically and stood to lose a great deal by
arresting Hazare on Tuesday as he was about to launch an anti-graft hunger
strike, analysts said. If anything, his stature has risen since he challenged
the government and all but forced it to back down. Ministers have been left
looking disorganized and defensive as anger has spread.

Although India has enjoyed strong economic growth for a decade, the last few
days have underscored public frustration over widespread graft, poor government
services and red tape. A series of scandals in recent months in the
telecommunications, defense and sports industries, allegedly involving tens of
billions of dollars, has intensified discontent.

Tavleen Singh, a columnist for the Indian Express newspaper, said her family
had to register some real estate in Delhi courts a few years ago and she went
along.

“The lawyer said to us, ‘Either you pay [$250] to get it done or it will take
two years,'” she said. “So we paid. It’s incredible; this sort of corruption was
right in Delhi. It’s everywhere. Young people are becoming increasingly
frustrated. Just to get a driver’s license, you have to bribe someone.”

Hazare has become a catalyst for this grass-roots frustration. Through a
series of hunger strikes, he has built support for a controversial bill that
would create an ombudsman, or lokpal, empowered to root out high-level
corruption. The government has tried to weaken the bill by exempting the prime
minister’s office and top judges from its scrutiny and making the post strictly
advisory.

Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh
sought to regain the initiative in a speech Wednesday in Parliament.
Singh, 78, has a reputation for integrity and honesty, although he’s come under
growing criticism for the many scandals on his watch and for a perception that
he’s increasingly out of touch.

“I acknowledge that Anna Hazare may be inspired by high ideals,” Singh told
lawmakers to opposition catcalls. But the activist’s approach, he added, is
“totally misconceived.”

Despite Hazare’s popularity, even government critics and anti-graft activists
question some of his ideas. Placing this much power in a nonelected office that
could itself become a conduit for corruption is not necessarily the answer, they
say, arguing instead for better law enforcement and governance.

But few can easily dismiss Hazare’s commitment, energy or swelling
support.

Also fueling public anger are demographics, analysts said.

“You have a young, rapidly rising middle class that’s changing the country’s
politics, as seen with this anti-corruption movement,” said Gurcharan Das, an
author and columnist. “This is the trailer of a movie in 2020 when the middle
class becomes 50% of the population. It’s a double feature, politics and the
economy.”

Outside Tihar prison, thousands of supporters from across political and
socioeconomic lines had weathered the August sun Wednesday awaiting Hazare’s
release, many chanting “Hail Mother India!” and “Down with corruption!” The site
of his detention was not without irony, given that Tihar’s inmates include
businesspeople, politicians and a former minister being held on corruption
charges.

The crisis had been building for days. The government initially tried to
impose 22 restrictions on Hazare’s protest, including limiting his hunger strike
to three days and allowing only 5,000 supporters to attend. When he refused,
police moved in Tuesday. After they granted him release on bail, he outflanked
them by refusing to leave prison, demanding that all protest restrictions be
dropped.
