Anna Hazare
Bangalore, May 26: Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare will soon visit Bangalore as a part of his pan-India visit. Hazare and his team, comprising Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, Swami Agnivesh, Prashant Bhushan, and Manish Sisodia will be in Karnataka's capital, also known as India's silicon valley on May 27 and 28.

Prithvi Reddy, the coordinator of India Against Corruption (IAC) has informed, "He (Hazare) will first stop at T Begur village on the Bangalore-Tumkur highway, and will then attend a televised discussion on the Jan Lokpal Bill along with Justice Santhosh Hegde and the others. A public gathering is also organised from 2 pm at the National College Grounds, Basavanagudi."

Hazare, who has become the icon for all anti-corruption protests after his "fast-unto-death" in Jantar Mantar, has embarked a nation-wide visit to reach out the aam admi.

Hazare, a retired soldier, with his hunger-strike, has succeeded to coerce the government into submission on the demands of appointing a joint committee to draft the "Lokpal Bill".

Lokpal Bill is a measure to conduct an investigation regarding involvements of people with high profiles (Prime Ministers, Chief Justice of India (CJI) and so on). The bill will provide speedy, cheaper form of justice to people. The Lokpal bill will not wait for any permission from the high commission to begin the inquiry into the alleged irregularities and corruption charges against political leaders, judge's or even the Chief Justice of India (CJI).

Now, with Anna Hazzare in town, Bangaloreans are expected to take an oath of not taking bribes as a token of respect for Anna Hazare. Whether or not they decide to remain as such for the entire span of their lives depends on how much Hazare and his campaign have managed to infiltrate into the collective psyche of India's common man.
