They can't go on looting my nation

I was some days before not so positive about Jan Lokpal movement. Because personally I didn't like the way things were happening and democracy was made to act. I didn't like the candle lightening just for craze (and not vote at all!) and someone asking govt. to do what he says. Also I didn't like media and people looking at this issue as the only issue of national interest and everything else is good and okay. I didn't like the media staying calm on other issues like farmers suicides, poverty and many others and just en-cashing this TRP-full drama. But I now have understood why they needed to do it this way. I still don't like some of the above stated issues, but yes I would love to see A STRONG lokpal/Janlokpal bill coming into existence to eradicate the corruption and also to show every political party that they can't go on looting my nation and we still exist.

Also I would like to request my friends who are concerned about change in Constitution. Nor this or any other government has followed what Dr. Ambedkar had said. So let's not worry about that. Our democratic and secular values are still strong and we shall strive to keep them strong. We should also take care that no communal organizations and political parties make a use of this issue for political benefits. But let's think twice and be on right side NOW.

Otherwise, our situation will be like :

"First they (Nazi) came for the communists,  and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the trade unionists,  and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for me  and there was no one left to speak out for me."  - Martin Niemöller.
