I am overwhelmed by the support you receive towards your anti corruption crusade.Every section of our society is fed up with what is going on.I understand that the latest to support your crusade is the builders of Mumbai; auto unions in Delhi and Mumbai expressed their support a day or two earlier. The Dubbawalas of Mumbai expressed their solidarity.
You may continue to insist on the Government accepting the “Jan Lokpal” bill. You have other equally important roles to play as one of the very few surviving Gandhians. Mahatmaji believed in converting his adversaries through peaceful persuasion.
You presently enjoy the support of every section of our society; it is time for you to ask your supporters not to accept or receive bribes. Every hour you must personally read a suitably worded pledge. LET IT GET THE WIDEST PUBLICITY. LET THE TV CHANNELS VIE WITH EACH OTHER TO SPREAD YOUR PLEDGE. IF YOUR SUPPORTERS DECIDE TO FOLLOW THE PLEDGE WE WILL WIN HALF THE WAR AGAINST CORRUPTION.
I do not know whether I will be accepted as a member of the civil society. I am a retired senior scientist.I served the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre for about 20 years and the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board for the next 20 years. Since 2004, I serve the Department of Atomic Energy as a Raja Ramanna Fellow. I am apolitical. Future generations will remember you for your constructive role, if you personally remind every one about the need for probity in public life. If you are able to convert one percent of your followers……..
