In his War against massive Corruption in India, Anna Hazare started his fast unto death on account of the serious differences he saw between the UPA Draft  Lokpal Bill and the JAN LOKPAL BILL prepared by Social Activists who are part of the team of Anna Hazare’s Movement. The major d differences between the UPA Government Draft Lokpal Bill 2010 and Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal Bill can be summarized as follows:


Lokpal will have no power to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public. It can only probe complaints forwarded by the Lok Sabha Speaker or the
Rajya Sabha Chairman.

Jan Lokpal will have powers to initiate suo moto action or receive complaints of corruption from the general public.
Lokpal will only be an Advisory Body. Its part is only limited to forwarding its report to the "Competent Authority"
Jan Lokpal will be much more than an Advisory Body. It should be granted powers to initiate Prosecution against anyone found guilty.

Lokpal will not have any police powers. It can not register FIRs or proceed with criminal investigations.
Jan Lokpal will have police powers.  Jan Lokpal will be able to register FIRs.

CBI and Lokpal will have no connection with each other.
Jan Lokpal and anti corruption wing of CBI will be one Independent body.

Punishment for corruption will be minimum 6 months and maximum up-to 7 years.
The punishment should be minimum 5 years and maximum up-to life imprisonment.


The UPA Government Draft Lokpal Bill 2010 is meant to create the institution of an ombdusman that will tackle political corruption, but civil society groups like that of Anna Hazare say it will be a toothless body with only recommendatory powers and that it will not cover guilty bureaucrats.

The UPA Government Draft Lokpal Bill 2010, which has been circulated to various ministries for their opinion, provides for filing complaints against the prime minister, ministers and MPs. HOWEVER, THE BILL SAYS THE COMPLAINTS WILL HAVE TO BE ROUTED THROUGH THE PRESIDING OFFICER OF THE HOUSE --- EITHER LOK SABHA OR RAJYA SABHA --- TO WHICH THE MP BELONGS. It also proposes certain limitations on the Lokpal's jurisdiction over the Prime Minister.

So will the the UPA Government’s proposed Lokpal be just another Committee? Former Lok Sabha Secretary General Subash C. Kashyap has raised this question and has said that the Draft Bill is nothing but lip service to the idea of Lokpal and that such an institution would be toothless. Subash C. Kashyap has also added that “Lokpal proposed by Government will have only recommendatory powers. Only retired judges will be its members and not eminent people from other fields. Lokpal should also have investigative machinery.”

The original concept of Lokpal was based on Ombudsman in Scandinavian countries where the administrative delay and misuse of official discretion were also brought under its purview.

Some well-known personalities and human rights activists, including Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde, Lawyer Prashant Bhushan, former police officer Kiran Bedi and former Chief Election Commissioner J.M. Lyngdoh have drafted an alternate Lokpal bill called 'Jan Lokpal Bill' with the aim of providing a single, autonomous apex body empowered to investigate and prosecute politicians and bureaucrats. This Draft Jan Lokpal Bill has been fully endorsed in letter and spirit by Anna Hazare

The Draft Jan Lokpal Bill aims at creating a Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayukta at the State level as independent bodies. They will have the power to initiate investigations and prosecution against any officer or politician without needing anybody's permission. There is a prescribed and fixed time limit for investigation and trial.

Both in the UPA Government Draft Lokpal Bill and the Draft Jan Lokpal Bill of Anna Hazare, it has been clearly indicated that the members of the Lokpal, including the Chairperson, should have unimpeachable integrity and should have demonstrated their resolve and efforts to fight against corruption in the past.”

We can see that the UPA Government --- with the highly corrupt Sonia Gandhi guiding it all the way --- has nothing but contempt for insistence upon concepts / notions of high integrity, morality and transparency underlying the selection of Chairman and Members of Lokpal. She has nothing but contempt for Anna Hazare and the common people of India and their fight for the establishment of a transparent and corruption-free national government. Otherwise, the Government would not have proposed only corrupt ministers with shady antecedents and continuing criminal connections as members of the Drafting Committee for the Draft Lokpal Bill. Who are all the corrupt Ministers in the Drafting Committee? Let me take them one-by-one.



The Chairman of the Drafting Committee for the Lokpal Bill is Pranab Mukherjee. He should have been criminally prosecuted immediately after the publication of the Shah Commission Report in 1978. Justice Shah had pointed out that this corrupt minister had illegally altered the entries in the Government Files in his capacity as the Minister of State for Finance (Revenue) in the criminal gangster Government headed by Indira Gandhi during the time of Emergency (1975-1977). When Indira Gandhi came to power in 1980, she saw to it that all the copies of the Shah Commission Report were destroyed. For his acts of pro-Indira Gandhi crimes, Indira Gandhi rewarded Pranab Mukherjee with the post of Union Minister of Finance in 1983! Fortunately, for the benefit of this generation, Era Sezhian, a former Member of Parliament and right-hand man of Jayaprakash Narain during the days of his fight and struggle against Indira Gandhi’s Emergency Rule during 1975-1977 has recently brought out a new Edition of the Shah Commission Report. In this Report we can see that Pranab Mukherjee was a criminally corrupt and unscrupulous Union Minister who believed only in the illegal personal Rule of Indira Gandhi (and of course, her infernal son Sanjay Gandhi to boot!) and not in the impersonal Rule of Constitutional Law. I am presenting below the front cover of the new Edition  Shah Commission Report which came out in December 2010 with a long and brilliant introduction by Era Sezhian.

The above Report exposes the past fraud of Pranab Mukherjee.

Dr Subramanian Swamy has clearly pointed out that Pranab Mukherjee is effectively shielding Hasan Ali, the biggest tax evader in the world. Dr Subramanian Swamy has also stated that Pranab Mukherjee is the chief money launderer for the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi.

Mr Vishwabandhu Gupta, IRS, former Commissioner of Income Tax, has brought out the NEFARIOUS CONNECTIONS OF PRANAB MUKHERJEE WITH THE CRIMINAL HASSAN ALI AND HIS ACCOMPLICE KASHINATH TAPURIAH. This fact by itself makes Pranab Mukherjee completely unfit for the office of the Chairman of the Lokpal Bill Drafting Committee.


Mr Vishwabandhu Gupta has also stated that it was P. CHIDAMBARAM who brought the UBS into India in 2005 in gross violation of all the norms, rules and regulations of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). They handled the sleaze transactions. Obama had arrested the UBS officials and imposed a fine of 900 million USD. As directed by Sonia Gandhi, Chidambaram brought into India 8 Italian Banks in 2005. He brought one mafia bank from Nepal, called Everest Bank.

Dr Subramanian Swamy has sent sent several Letters to the Prime Minister giving facts and other murky details about the corrupt and anti-national functioning of Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram. In a very recent Letter to the Prime Minister, Dr Subramanian Swamy has sought the permission of the Prime Minister as a ‘Designated Authority’ under the Prevention of Corruption Act to prosecute Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram. How can such a corrupt person be appointed as a Member of the Drafting Committee of the proposed Lokpal Bill?

Thus, both Pranab Mukherjee and P. Chidambaram are unfit to be Members of the Drafting Committee of the proposed Lokpal Bill. This fact has been vehemently and vociferously brought to public view by Vishwabandhu Gupta, former Commissioner of Income Tax.  

Vishwabandhu Gupta has recently posted on Youtube his voice statement wherein he has clearly stated that Pranab Mukherjee never misses the opportunity of having either lunch or dinner with Kashinath Tapuriah when ever he goes to Calcutta.

To quote the words of Vishwabandhu Gupta: “When I was in the Income Tax Department as Commissioner, we had raided Hasswan Ali in Pune and his accomplice Kashinath Tapuriah in Calcutta. Mrs Nalini Chidambaram, wife of the Union Finance Minister Chidambaram appeared in the Calcutta High Court on behalf of Kashinath Tapuriah and got him the bail. I don’t know how many hundreds of crores this couple charged from Hassan Ali and Kashinath Tapuriah. How can he (Chidambaram) be in the GOM when he should be behind bars? He has no business to be there even as a Minister in this Government.”

“There has been a fake currency scam in the RBI. The CBI raided the RBI vaults in 2010 August. They found fake currency in the RBI. The Cabinet Secretary briefed the meeting and said it was a small thing. The template for printing was with a man called Roberto Giaoro. What he did … he deliberately minutely altered the template. He was supplying all the fake currency notes to ISI, which were all coming to India at the rate of Rs 50 for every Rs 500 note. In India they are selling the same at Rs 250 for every Rs 500 note and in Nepal they are available at Rs 150 for every Rs 500 note. These two men, (Pranab Mukherjee and Chidambaram) are doing nothing. They are nothing but henchmen of these powers (ISI and other terrorist groups in India and Pakistan)”

Thus we can see that we have a Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee today with very dubious, shady and corrupt antecedents. Then we have a Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram with equally murky and corrupt background. I endorse the view of Mr Vishwabandhu Gupta that these two Ministers have to be sacked from the Union Cabinet. They deserve to be behind bars just like the former Union Telecom Minister A. Raja. We have the largest number of criminals working as Union Cabinet Ministers in the UPA II Government of the Italian Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi.
