12 days, 288 long hours and ultimately the fast of Anna came to an end. 27th August, 2011 would be written with golden letters in the history of India. The government had to give up to the just demands of the Team Anna. People's voice and protest against the government bill won under the umbrella of Team Anna. The Parliament passed a resolution accepting the 3 crucial demands of Anna:
- To include lower bureaucracy into the ambit of LokPal
- To establish Lokayuktas at the state level
- To establish Citizen's Charter for grievance redressal
This is just the first step and a long road is yet to be travelled. A mere accepting of resolution won't guarantee that these demands would be accepted at the Bill. There is still a long way to go for this. Like Team Anna, we the common men need to be always vigilant in this regard.
For the people of India, a new Mahatma is born. He has again shown the people what non-violent way of protest can achieve.
***WE ALL SUPPORT ANNA. LONG LIVE ANNA.***
