The Jantantra Rally is taking place at Gandhi Maidan under the leadership of Anna Hazare. This is the first rally after the separation of Anna from Arvind Kejriwal. The role which was usually played by Arvind has been assigned to the new anti-corruption leader General ( Retired) V.K. Singh. This rally has created quite a flutter in general public and might see the attendance of Office Goers and business person, who work in the buildings which are in vicinity of Gandhi Maidan. However, it is very unlikely that people might get inspired and travel far away places to make the rally successful.The timing of the rally is okay as there are many people who love to stroll in Gandhi Maidan to enjoy the sunlight, so the success of the rally hinges on the blessings of Sun God.
Anna has also roped in Tara Sinha, the Grand Daughter of the first President Dr. Rajendra Prasad. There are many people who are not taking it kindly and not able to digest the fact that Anna is trying to imitate iconic leaders like Jai Prakash Narayan and Subhash Chandra Bose by orchestrating a rally at Patna. There are very few people who are aware that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose delivered a fiery speech at Gandhi Maidan , Patna after the formation of “Forward Block”. It is a well known fact that Jai Prakash Narayan gave his slogan of “Sampurna Kranti” from Patna’s Gandhi Maidan. Quite ironically the leaders of India Against Corruption are not making any comment on present administration , despite of the fact that there are obvious cases of police high-handedness, corruption and crime in the recent past.
Bihari people must keep in mind that Anna is very close to “Raj Thackery” the leader of Maharashtra Nav Nirman Sena and he has never commented on the anti Bihari stance of Raj. Quite ironically he joins hand with the people like Raj who are spreading hatred and conspiring against Bihar and now he is looking for support from the people of the same state.
