Jan Lokpal’s final hours

Cabinet has just endorsed a bill that puts the Prime Minister under the ambit of the Lokpal - it’s a huge victory for all of us! But a much bigger fight will start in less than 24 hours - one that could throw everything we’ve fought for straight into the wastebasket.

The Cabinet’s bill would handcuff the Lokpal committee, allowing it to go only after corruption cases previously ‘green-lit’ by the government. This is outrageous - without the independence to investigate and prosecute, Jan Lokpal would effectively lack the teeth it needs to fight the corruption that holds India hostage.

Now it’s the Parliament’s turn to vote - and they go into session in less than 24 hours! Let’s tell our MPs that we will not sit idly by while it tries to gut the Lokpal in the last stages. Sign to the right and share this with everyone you know - we will fax thousands of signatures to MPs offices across the country before the voting begins.
