Social activist Anna Hazare and yoga guru Baba Ramdev have ended their respective agitations for the Jan Lok Bill and bringing back black money stashed abroad. Though the Anna fast at Jantar Mantar lasted slightly longer than Baba Ram Dev’s, both of them ended with a whimper as the government showed no intentions of buckling down under pressure or even listening to them.
While Team Anna ended its fast by saying that it was no use fasting in front of a “deaf” government and that it had decided to create a political alternative to fight corrupt politicians in the next elections. The team has announced its intention to launch the new alternative party on the Gandhi Jayanti. On the other hand, Baba Ramdev has announced his intention to revive his struggle against black money just before the next general elections.
