The nationally acclaimed crusader against corruption Anna Hazaare catagorically said that war between Indian and Pakistan is not the solution of the ongoing tussle between the two nations as both the country are reeling under deep economic crisis. If the war takes place both the countries will further go twenty years back, economically.
When questioned about the increasing numbers of Armymen being martyred on the border and Kashmir Anna replied : Its really shocking to find that more soldiers are being killed in the strife torn Kashmir than the numbers of those killed in a war between two countries, his obvious reference being the war between India and Pakistan. The crusader against corruption Anna Hazaare was today responding to the mediamen’s queries at Srinagar, Garhwal where he’s on a few days tour.
When asked that Pakistan is not relenting despite every effort for peace and the Indian Armymen are being slained Anna said, now enough is enough and the Indian government should finally attack Pakistan to teach the enemy a stringent lesson. He said: “Ab hindustan ko aar paar ki ladai ladni hi hogi aur dushman ko sabak sikhaana hoga.”
On the issue of Gairsain Anna appealed to the people of Uttarakhand to be united and without unity they can’t achieve Gairsain as their capital. He added: unless people unite and compel the government Gairsain could not be achieved. Therefore unite and fight said Anna.
He castigated the prime minister of not giving weitage to debate and discussions in a democracy. When Modiji became the PM and entered parliament for the first time he touched his head against the entrance floor of parliament terming it a the temple of democracy and justice but after that, he forgot everything and the voice of the people and democracy is being stifled.
He accused the Modi government as the government of dictates than a government believing in democracy. He said: Modi sarkaar loktantra ki nahi balki hukumtantra ki sarkaar ban gayi hai jahaan aam janta ki awaaj ke koi maayne nahi hain. Modi government should instead of giving dictates or dictatorial orders give handsome results by doing pro people works.
Favouring that the capital of Uttarakhand should be inside the hilly areas Anna appealed the people to unite and compel the government to bow before their demand. He added without struggle you can’t achieve the demand of capital Gairsain.
