|Anna Hazare is an ex-army man, fought 1965 Indo-Pak War. But he is well known as the reformer of village Ralegaon Siddhi in Ahamad Nagar district, Maharashtra, a self-sustained model village. |
It will be hard to beleive that it used to be a poverty clad village in 1975. Now it is one of the richest village in India with it's solar power, wind mill, bio-fuel producing system. It has become a model for self-sustained, eco-friendly and harmonic village now.
Anna Hazare was awarded Padma Bhushan for such social activities.
Now this great follower of Mahatma Gandhi has stepped out to stop corruptions.
He is advocating for the Jana Lok pal Bill (Citizen Ombudsman Bill), that will form an autonomous authority who will make govt. personnel, govt. official, political personnel accountable for their deeds.
In 1972, the bill was proposed then by law minister Mr. Shanti Bhushan. Since then it has been neglected by the politicians, even some are trying to change the bill to suit their corrupted deeds.
Now Anna has started a hunger strike to make the Jana Lokpal Bill in practice.
