CHIEFSWORLD Slide 8: CHIEFSWORLD Slide 9: Anti-corruption protests in Maharashtra Right to Information movement Regulation of Transfers and Prevention of Delay in Discharge of Official Duties Act Campaign against liquor from food grains Lokpal Bill movement His movements so far Slide 10: In the early 2000s, Anna Hazare led a movement in Maharastra state, which forced the Government of Maharashtra to repeal the earlier weak act and pass a more stronger Right to Information Act, which was later considered as the base document for the Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI), enacted by the Union Government. It also ensured that the President of India assented to this new act. CHIEFSWORLD Slide 11: In 2011, Anna Hazare led a movement for passing a stronger anti-corruption Lokpal (ombudsman) bill in the Indian Parliament. As a part of this movement, N. Santosh Hegde, a former justice of the Supreme Court of India and Lokayukta of Karnataka, Prashant Bhushan, a senior lawyer in the Supreme Court along with the members of the India Against Corruption movement drafted an alternate bill, named as the Jan Lokpal Bill (People's Ombudsman Bill) with more stringent provisions and wider power to the Lokpal (Ombudsman). Lokpal Bill movement CHIEFSWORLD Slide 12: Hazare has started a fast unto death from 5 April 2011 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi, to press for the demand to form a joint committee of the representatives of the Government and the civil society to draft a new bill with more stronger penal actions and more independence to the Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Ombudsmen in the states), after his demand was rejected by the Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh After Congress Govt Agreed to form joint committee he broke his fast Slide 13: CHIEFSWORLD 10 MEMBER COMMITTEE WAS FORMED TO DRAFT LOKPAL BILL BUT FAILED Slide 15: The announced plans of social activist Anna Hazare to go on a fast unto death from August 16 in support of the demand of the anti-corruption movement headed by him for a stronger Jan Lok Pal Bill than the one introduced by the government in Parliament poses an executive and moral dilemma to the government of Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh The executive dilemma arises from the fact that an attempt to commit suicide for whatever purpose is a criminal offence under the Indian Penal Code and the Government is legally bound to act against the threatened fast, if necessary, by arresting Hazare either before or during his fast in order to save his life and to prevent a public disorder. The executive dilemma is enhanced by the danger that the act of saving his life might be interpreted as a violation of his right to protest and might lead to an even greater public disorder. The moral dilemma arises from the fact that a fast unto death as a form of protest has been an accepted weapon since the days of Mahatma Gandhi. He used the threat of fast unto death on some occasions against the British rulers because he was left with no other way of expressing his protest over the failure of the British to concede his demands. CHIEFSWORLD Slide 16:

Activist Anna Hazare was on Tuesday 16 Aug 2011 detained by Delhi Police ahead of his scheduled fast at the Jai Prakash Narain Park in the city. Also detained were Arvind Kejriwal and other supporters. The police action prompted protests against the government and the police. Reacting to the Delhi Police action, former IPS officer and social activist Kiran Bedi said: "I have been saying that the Delhi Police is being given directions. He has been taken into preventive custody even when he has not broken any law. Emergency has revisited the country. This detention is unconstitutional and undemocratic." Since early morning, a group of people had thronged an east Delhi apartment where Anna Hazare was staying to pledge their support ahead of his protest demanding a strong Lokpal. The 74-year-old social activist, who is staying at Supreme Enclave, was planning to stage an indefinite fast at Jai Prakash Narain Park, near Feroj Shah Kotla Stadium, where prohibitory orders have been imposed. CHIEFSWORLD Slide 17: Anna agrees to 14-day fast at Ramlila Maidan In a late night breakthrough, 18 Aug 2011 Anna Hazare and his team have agreed to 14-day fast at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi. The social activist, who will go under a check up at Tihar jail at 10 am, will reach the protest venue around 3pm in an open jeep. Though for the time being there has been a breakthrough, Anna Hazare's basic demand of civil society draft of lokpal bill being introduced in Parliament remains. Police negotiators, Hazare and his associates came to an agreement on several issues. They agreed that the fast venue would be the spacious Ramlila Grounds and that there would be no ceiling on the number of protesters. They also agreed that loudspeakers would be used at the venue and that Hazare would be examined by government as well as private and personal Doctors CHIEFSWORLD Slide 18: Checkered shorts and a Gandhi topi is a fashion felony. But 29-year-old Shailesh Saraf doesn't care; he has never blindly followed a popular trend. Currently on "FL or fasting leave", Saraf, a vice president with Morgan Stanley, is down from Hong Kong to campaign for the Jan Lokpal bill. Saraf was among the 72 protesters who were fasting for the second consecutive day at Azad Maidan; two new recruits joined the fast on Wednesday. At the maidan, Saraf intermittently checks his Blackberry, not for investment updates or market movements but for news of Anna Hazare's release. For the most part, he sits on the stage, listening to people unspooling long speeches about the corruption they'd faced. CHIEFSWORLD
