Recent events have proven that there is clearly a groundswell of support for strong anti-corruption laws. The first phase of show of strength between the Government and Team Anna is now over. The government grossly underestimated Anna’s reach, credibility, and grassroots support. If attacking his credibility didn’t work, arresting him only made it worse. All the naysayers and Anna’s critics should now have their answer loud and clear. Like it or not, the vast majority of people in India back Team Anna.
Unlike what the UPA government would have us believe, the support for Team Anna is not a mass hysteria realized by false propaganda. The series of outrageous scams that have shocked the country have driven the average man on the street to rebel against a government that has failed to take effective steps to counter corruption. Team Anna has served as the catalyst to inspire our masses into action.
