Country heading towards dictatorship: Anna Hazare

GREATER NOIDA: Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare attacked the Narendra Modi-led executive on Sunday, pronouncing the rustic used to be heading towrads a dictatorship beneath the current regi-me as bills had been being handed in Parliament with none dialogue.
Hazare accused Modi of going back at the guarantees he had made all the way through the campaign for Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and stated the NDA executive had diluted the Lokpal Bill by way of disposing of some crucial provisions like the necessary disclosure of belongings by way of executive servants and their family members.

Hazare addressed a 500-strong collecting of villagers from throughout Gautam Budh Nagar in Dadri's Beel Akbarpur. He spoke to the media thereafter.

The corruption crusader gave a call to farmers and citizens of the district to participate in an agitation to be held in Delhi on March 23 over farmers' problems. The assembly has been deliberate to raise demands like better price for vegetation, the Jan Lokpal Bill and changes within the electoral procedure. Hazare stated that neither the BJP nor the previous Congress-led governments had acted for a powerful Lokpal, however a subversive regulation used to be handed in July 2016 with none dialogue in Parliament. "The agenda for our agitation will be farmers' issues. The other will be the Jan Lokpal. The Narendra Modi government is moving towards a dictatorship. This is a big threat to the nation. Why am I saying this? The entire country had stood up and agitated for the Lokpal Bill, which resulted in the government making a law. When this government came, it was believed it will help pass the bill. Instead, it formulated another law to dilute the previous Lokpal and the Lokayuktas Act, 2013," he stated.

"There was a provision in the bill that any government official had to disclose the property held by his wife and children on March 31 every year. They removed this provision and closed down a way to eliminate corruption in the bureaucracy. Now, they are giving full-page advertisements about corruption-free India even as they are diluting the law," he added.

Hazare stated that the Jan Lokpal Bill may now not be handed even after all those years and The Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Amendment) Bill, 2016, used to be handed by way of each Houses with none dialogue. "If in Parliament, bills are passed without any discussion, it means we are heading towards a dictatorship. When the Prime Minister was about to enter Parliament for the first time, he said he was entering the purest temple of democracy and that he believes in discussion," he stated.

Calling for reforms within the electoral procedure, Hazare stated the choice of Nota used to be ineffective within the current form.


"Democracy will come when party symbols go away. I call for the right to reject and the right to recall. It was our demand that in case the maximum number of votes falls for Nota, the election should be cancelled and conducted afresh," he stated.


Hazare, however, agreed with the PM and the President's name for a debate on conserving simultaneous polls to the Lok Sabha and the state Assemblies, pronouncing the move would help save some huge cash spent on advertisements.


Manish Sharma, chief media coordinator of BJP in Gautam Budh Nagar, stated the celebration strongly condemned Hazare's allegations.
