Head of the parliamentary panel on Lokpal bill and party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi of the Congress party claimed that the movement against corruption and the insistence on passing a Lokpal bill was an insult to our Parliament,
I would like to offer a counter argument to Sri. Singhvi.
If anyone has been insulted, it is the Indian citizen who has been led up the garden path by the Congress party. The proposal for the Lokpal bill has been hanging fire from 1968. since then, the Congress party has mostly been in power and mostly with a brute majority in the parliament. If for all these years, the bill could not have been passed and measures taken against corruption in our body politic, our citizens have been insulted and not the Parliament.
Moreover, our respected Parliamentarians have been calling the agitating citizens as the Civil Society. Is it then not obvious as to who is insulting who, and who is the uncivil party in the equation?
