Angry Mani Shankar Aiyar - What democracy?


The Indian Express of date - 25/04/2011 quotes, Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar as to have commented that "The recent civil society movement triggered by Anna Hazare's anti-corruption campaign holds the danger of undermining democracy and its instituitions"

What democracy is he talking about? Corruption is what is undermining democracy and its institutions. This is one more attempt by the Congress and its leaders to create fear in the minds of the common man and prevent us from coming out of the current rut. Can Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar promise and ensure a corrupt free democratic institution with the current crop of politicians and self styled leaders, irrespective of their political party?
What use is of democracy as prevalent now, when an RTI activist is either beaten up or killed? The Common man has no other option but to have a very effective and strong Lokpal to have genuine democracy.

"real loktantra"

"Loktantra" means each and every citizen has liberty to speak anthing he wish. So for Mr. Mani Shankar Aiyar is enjoying his liberty to speak. We and our Ho'nble Anna Hazare are also enjoying our liberty to speak against corruption but unfortunately whe have "majority" shown in five days hunger only. Any one Who wish to oppose Ho'nble Anna Hazare and his team must go for 10 days hunger then only he may say anything against anti corruption mission.

The life of Mr Mani Shankar Aiyar is confined under the umbrella of Gandhi Family, he dose not carry any political identity !!!!!!

Mani Shankar is one of a most corrupt person who is famous of giving shameless statements in media

Aiyar saab please go back to your parents & learn how to behave

Exactly....why haven't we ever heard him speak when Corruption was undermining Democracy for the past 65 Years ? Where was his sense of 'danger' then ? Gone 'Underground' ?

Or is this another attempt from him to patch up with his long estranged Political Madam Sonia Gandhi
...... ?

Well said. To add, When law makers become law breakers what is expected of the common man, Mr Iyer? Now he has chance to vent his feelings. Who can stop this?Democracy starts from the people-We the people.

It used to be.....until he was somewhat unceremoniously 'thrown out' from the bandwagon....

He now seems desperate to do something to come back...

When democracy degenerates, Tyranny takes over !
Read Plato's " The Republic".
Save "polity" not a "politician".
Fight corruption to save democracy.
