Any one who will standup for systemic changes will face this consequence. he will be hooted, discredited, defamed and if that does not work, subdued by force. Just because Anna Hazare was not seen the main threat and emerged as a surprise from nowhere, his character could not be tarnished enough. However, the campaign against him and others in IAC too started almost immediately once the threat was realised. He too will not be spared from a defamation campaign once he is seen such a threat.
There are allegations on Ramdev’s money but can the same microscopic scruitny he is subjected to be exercised over Gandhi family, their money and trusts, digvijay singh, congress, by these very same media channels? from where they get the money? the credibility of media is extremly low as they have a corporate vested interest to take care of. When the money donated by public for public purpose becomes an issue then where does the congress and corrupt politicos gets their money? Any public trust that is annually audited by govt will face similar doubts. These aspersions are casted in the mind of common man by a sustained propoganda campaign. His issues may not be pertinant to metro middle class but his issues are pertinant for 85% rural india. The strategy is simple, if ramdev and anti corruption movt weekens, IAC will not stand too (as the mass base divides), BJP and opposition is already having no credibility. The field will be open. In the end some lolipop compensation will be given to people followed by propoganda by the gobbels of congress ( main stream corporate media) and thats it. Nothing will change….but I am an optimist and believe a change for good will happen…it has to happen…there is no other way out as people are pushed to corner.
