Indian social activist Anna Hazare, who has taken India by storm lately, has been assured that the Lokpal Bill will be introduced according to his wishes. Hazare has emerged as a leading campaigner against corruption, and his hunger strike received much public support because he seemed to have touched a nerve among the public at large. This was the first time the middle-class in India woke up to its own potential and this scared the ‘progressives’ as much as the leftists because they knew they may lose their stranglehold on the poor and illiterate masses that kept them in power for so long. Not ignoring the fact that corruption has escalated in India in the last few decades, one can also not ignore the legal right of Anna Hazare and his team to represent civil society on the issue of Lokpal. Is it not that until and unless the socalled civil society members go to the people and win elections, they cannot claim to be representing the civil society in the true sense of the term? More importantly what would happen if the anti-corruption watchdog itself becomes corrupt? Who is going to control the inspectors? Who is going to guard the guardians? These are important questions which cannot be brushed under the carpet.
