The Lok Pal bill is meant to be some sort of nuclear weapon against corruption in high offices (an nice FAQ here). Anna Hazare wants the bill to have some teeth; he doesn’t want to leave it upto ministers to draft it. Therefore, his hunger strike.

The government responds, and how:

Sharad Pawar is leading the group of ministers formed to look into the changes in the Lokpal Bill.

That is your joke.


Can you name one elected official who, through his/her actions, is crusading against corruption?

Me neither.
