NEW DELHI: Well known Social Worker Anna Hazare wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and did not take action to appoint Lokpal and Lokayukta and to remove problems of farmers, the Swaminathan committee’s report is not implemented on the Central Government allegations By imposing the decision to move to Delhi.
In a letter of 4 page written to PM Modi, Anna Hazare said that during a dream of a corruption free India, there was a historical movement in Ramlila Maidan and the whole country in August 2011. In view of this movement, the Parliament passed the resolution according to the spirit of the house, with the appointment of Lokpal and Lokayukta in the states at the center, it was decided to make the law as soon as possible on important issues like the citizencharter. After the written assurance of the central government on this proposal, I had postponed our agitation on August 28.
Hazare said in the letter that even after 6 years of this incident, even a single law prohibiting corruption has not been implemented. Being disturbed by this I am writing to you (Prime Minister). Regarding the appointment of Lokpal and Lokayukta in the last three years, we have consistently corresponded in August 2014, January 2015, January 2016, January 2017 and March 2017, but no action has been received from your side.
He said that your party (BJP) leaders, who played the role of the Opposition in both the Houses of Parliament when the Lokpal and Lokayukta Act was formed, gave full support to this law. The people of the country chose this new government in 2014 with great hope. You (Prime Minister) had assured the people of the country the priority of creation of corruption-free India. But even today the work of the public is not being done without money. Corruption has not diminished on questions related to public life. With the implementation of the Lokpal and Lokayukta law, 50-60 per cent of corruption can be stopped but this is not being implemented. There is no appointment for three years.
Anna Hazare wrote that it is surprising that in the states where the Opposition is in the government, there is nowhere there is a government of your party (BJP), even the Lokpal and Lokayukta law has not been implemented. In a letter written to the Prime Minister, Hazare said that India is an agricultural country and farmers are committing suicide every day in the country. I also wrote a letter to you regarding the cost of farmers in the field of farming. But there was no response to this and no action was taken on the report of Swaminathan Commission.
Hazare wrote in his letter that in the last several days, farmers, in many states including Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Telangana, are organizing agitation and started agitation. But the government’s sense of condolence is not visible to the miserable farmers of the country. He said that recently some such provisions have come out so that political parties can get donations as much as they can from companies. If the central government is worried about farmers than by making amendments in the law, it should be made that the companies donate to the farmers and the poor.
He wrote that if the problem of farmers is to be solved then the report of the Swaminathan commission should be fully implemented, the farming yield should be provided on the basis of cost and financial security is provided to farmers and laborers. At the same time, political parties should be brought under the purview of the Right to Information Act. Anna Hazare emphasized in his letter to the Prime Minister that no notice has been given in the last three years on his various demands, in which he has decided to move on to these subjects related to public interest in Delhi.
