New Delhi : In its public awakening programme in Greater Noida Saturday, Team Anna warned people that they were going to be defeated and that political parties would the only winners.
“We should have no illusions about any change happening after the (Uttar Pradesh assembly) elections. The final outcome will be that the public would be defeated. Now, the fight initiated to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill has been widened to change the entire system,” said Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal.
Putting emphasis on overhauling the system, Arvind Kejriwal said all types of bad elements including robbers and rapists had overpowered parliament. “The fight would be to overhaul parliament’s character, which has become a big problem for us – the people of India,” he said.
Kejriwal, scathing in his criticism of political parties, said: “All political parties are corrupt. They are fighting to grab the seat to loot. They are not concerned for the growth and the development of the country. Today, the Congress is crying for not being able to loot the state exchequer. Otherwise, it had ruled the state for about 40 years in the past.
“The BJP is also in the same bracket. It did nothing to check corruption in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Himanchal Pradesh and Karnataka. All the political parties are fighting for their share in the loot,” he said.
At the meet, Team Anna members Sanjay Singh and Manish Sishodia also appealed to the audience to use Form 17A to reject the candidate if they found him/her to be unworthy.
