The government's vision for the Lokpal Bill seems to be vastly different from that of the civil society and yet, after 40 years, we still don't exactly know or understand what that vision is!
We need a national poll to determine the public mood. Should the civil society representatives compromise on one thing, something or everything? Should they let the bill be drafted as per the wishes of their government counterparts? If that's what we wanted, why were we supporting Anna Hazare's fast a mere 6 weeks ago.
Why is the government testing the patience of the population? How out of touch are they? Can I start a recall petition? The government may well end up provoking another citizen agitation with this careless arrogant attitude.
