Meetings to raise public awareness on Lokpal Bill in Delhi

In a bid to increase public awareness on the anti-graft Lokpal Bill, the volunteers of pressure group India Against Corruption (IAC) are holding several meetings in the national capital Sunday. These will be held in three areas: Narela, Rohini and Shahdara.   »

New Delhi: Participants at a public consultation, organised by NGO India Against Corruption here Sunday, demanded that parliament pass the Lokpal Bill as soon as possible to root out corruption from India.

A large number of people from all walks of life participated in the consultation, held in Shahadra in east Delhi.

"This is the first time in the history of India when the people of India, with the government, will frame an anti-corruption bill. A poor person has pay a bribe to a government official for even a ration card, which is shameful," said Rishikesh Kumar, a volunteer of India Against Corruption.

Speakers stressed the need to uproot corruption from the country, demanding that the bill must be passed and there must be transparency in each and every government policy.

Holding Prime Minister Manmohan Singh responsible for the 2G spectrum scam, businessman Ravi Kumar Kholee said: "Manmohan Singh must answer to the nation about this entire 2G scam as it happened under his nose and he did nothing. Through these public meetings, we can create awareness about the widespread corruption and take action against it."

Participants also demanded that prime minister and judiciary must be brought under the purview of the bill, and vowed to support to social activist Anna Hazare, whose 97-hour-long hunger strike led the government to set up a joint panel to frame the bill, in his campaign against corruption.

"If the the bill is not passed by Aug 15, we will sit with Anna Hazare at Jantar Mantar in the battle against corruption," said Right to Information (RTI) activist K.C. Gupta.

Similar public consultations on the bill were held at Narela and Rohini in west and north Delhi. Such meetings have already been conducted in Guwahati, Ahmedabad and various other cities.
