For all the latest Delhi News,gaddar? Anna Hazare was depicted as a modern messiahwholike Moseshad come to rescue his chosen people and lead them to a land of honey and milk Now that the brouhaha and hullabaloo has subsidedit is time to make a cooldispassionate and logical assessment of Hazare and his movement I have no doubt that Anna Hazare is an honest manbut my point is that the problems facing the country (and corruption is certainly one of them) are so massive that they can only be solved by a rationalscientific approachnot by emotional outbursts Honesty alone is not enough So far as I can gatherAnna Hazare has no scientific ideas Consider the following: His solution to alcoholism is to tie alcoholics to a pole and whip them Is this a rational solution Most poor people who drink liquor in this country drink cheap country liquornot scotch They drink to get some temporary relief from their miserable lives To abolish alcoholism among them would be possible only by abolishing povertyand that can be done by raising their standard of living and giving them decent lives This is a gigantic taskand cannot be solved by flogging them in public Anna Hazare also demands a right to recall elected representatives But how is that possible within the system Supposing a law is made that a motion can be moved for the recall of an MLA or MP signed by 10000 voters But for getting this motion passedthere will have to be voting by all the voters in the constituency This would mean another election Is this feasible An election entails a huge amount of expenditure Can a poor country like ours have repeated elections I think the idea is totally impractical Now coming to the Lokpal Billwhether the Jan Lokpal Bill or the sarkari Lokpal Billit envisages overseeing the work of some 55 lakh government employees in the country (of which 13 lakhs are in the railways alone)from prime minister to peon Surely one person cannot enquire into the lakhs of complaints which are bound to pour in It will require thousands of Lokpalsperhaps 50000to do this All of them will have to be provided salaries and other amenitiessuch as housingoffices and staff And then where is the guarantee that they will not themselves become corrupt In factconsidering the low level of morality prevailing in Indiawe can be fairly certain that a large number of them will become blackmailers The Lokpal Bill will create a parallel bureaucracywhich will turn into Frankensteins monster Instead of curtailing corruptionin all probabilityit willat a strokedouble or triple corruption in the country I regret to say that the implications of creating such an apparatus were not rationally thought outand instead some people thought that all the problems of corruption will be solved by shouting Bharat mata ki jai or Inquilab zindabad from the Jantar Mantar or Ramlila ground in Delhi I may clarify that I am not against any kind of Lokpal Justice Hegde did a fantastic job in exposing the corruption of the mining mafia in Karnataka But the type of Lokpal envisaged in the Jan Lokpal bill or the government Lokpal bill are clearly impractical and unworkable I would therefore respectfully urge Parliament to defer consideration of the bill before it and refer the matter to a standing committee (as Lalu Prasad has suggested)where experts from various fields in the country and outside be invited to give their views Only then can a workable Lokpal machinery can be created Passing bills in a hurry and under pressure from some people having their own agenda will only add to the huge problems facing the

chance saved Earlier Canada had taken the lead in just the third minute courtesy Johnston His well-timed flick found the space between the post and India keeper Vikas Dahiya to take a1-0 lead Harmanpreet Singh levelled matters just four minutes later after converting the ball well and then moving it a bit to create room and thundering the ball in the corner of the goal making it difficult to save for the Kindler India took the lead in the 22nd minute after wasting multiple penalty corner chances Once again Harmanpreet was at the heart of the action to beat the keeper to the right with
