The anti-corruption Lokpal Bill moved a step closer to enactment, the proposed bill has been passed in Rajya Sabha. Anna Hazare thanks Rahul for taking initiative to pass the bill. Kejriwal on the other hand calls it 'Jokpal' as he thinks its 'weak' and 'ineffective' and is completely toothless. If passed by the Lok Sabha today, it will become a law.

Do you think this bill will be effective and will help handle corruption in India in a big way?

If principles are not translated into practice then they are useless. It will be futile attempt. Already laws are there against corruption. But law enforcing agencies are themselves corrupted. There are escape ways all over.

Only to a certain extent. With this bill there should be will amongst all to end that deep rooted corruption which is spreading like cancer in the system. Laws are made for all and not few, for people and not for law books.

Any law enforced properly and determination will give good effect. On the contrary even a most powerful law too may become ineffective. So everything lies in the hands who enforce it.

No it will not do what the country desires but it definitely will make a beginning. We must understand that politicians as individuals or political parties would never have wanted any Lokpal at all and had been avoiding this for the last more than sixty years. They have been forced to bring this bill due to tremendous public pressure, which was finally proved when congress was given this humiliating defeat in Delhi and all other states. Congress understood that if they fail to bring this Bill right now they will be completely eliminated in 2014 Lok Sabha polls. They are least worried for Anna but had to show that it was Anna's pressure of fasting that they had to bring this bill right now, otherwise till pre election scenario they never uttered a word on Lokpal. Now that it has been brought, it will form it's own teeth like the Election commission and CAG. CAG will also have to be freed of govt.'s yoke.

It is a good beginning and if not 100%, it will definitely reduce the corruption improve the accountability. It may work as a deterrent.

This Lokpal is same as CBI investigating 2G case under supervision of Supreme court. So what is the basic difference? Supreme court is just replaced by new body with a new name. CBI is still the same.
