An Indian - More Freedom - Less obedient
The Lok Pal is not a panacea for the corruption removal. It is also an institution to be created for checking corruption just as the other existing institutions like the CAG, PAC, CBI, IG, Police etc.
For the time being there may be some effect. Thereafter this will also become like its predecessor institutions. Corruption can be removed only when we change our mindset. It arises out of our mental attitude. It cannot be changed by external forces. The external forces can only catch and punish.
It is greatness of Dr. Manmohan Singh that he expressed his desire to be covered under the Lok Pal. It is time that all the political parties rise above party and politics and work together to spare the Prime Minister at least.
It is not to say that there is no corruption. It is there and is spreading its tentacles to cover all aspects of our lives. The actual action that is required is not being done. Each of us should introspect and try to remove the corruption in the self instead of trying to find the corruption of others and trying to take action against them.
