It’s extremely unfortunate that Prashant Bhushan was roughed up at his chamber. Though the whole incident smacks of conspiracy, it’s clear that such examples set a bad precedent in a mature democracy. However, I need to know who has given the right to likes of Prashant Bhushan to make controversial statement in matters extremely sensitive in nature? Why they believe in flaring up the conflict with such a crass remark?
Why people making lots of noises over Prashant Bhushan’s beating kept quite when a journalist was publicly manhandled in front of many prominent journalist at a conference organized by a prominent Muslim leader? Prashant Bhushan should concentrate on eliminating corruption and not enter in cheap politics, which is already the prime task of so many other prominent leaders !!
The Team Anna is here to ensure a better mechanism to eliminate corruption and not to enter in cheap gimmicks. The waywardness on part of Prashant Bhushan is giving a bad name to Team Anna and also raises doubt over the motives of Team Anna. If the members can give way to such insensitive remarks at this stage when they are out of power, it’s not hard to imagine that they can too give way to atrocious policies by joining hands with wrong elements once they are in power
It’s better that Team Anna should ensure a better image for itself by being true to the hopes they have unleashed by committing to the task of elimination of corruption. The message on the wall is clear: Eliminate corruption but let’s not play politics in name of removing corruption. We have produced enough leaders to play politics. Let’s not Team Anna strengthen the tribe of corrupt leaders by playing in the hands of wrong elements.
