Bangalore: Hardening its stand again after the Assembly elections, Team Anna moved from setting deadlines for the Lokpal Bill to naming Union ministers with a tainted reputation. They warned of a nationwide ‘jail bharo’ agitation in August if criminal cases were not filed against 14 Union Ministers on charges of corruption and criminal intimidation. The team said that the dates would be announced later.

Team Anna addressed crowds at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, the venue of a fast to demand protection for whistleblowers campaigning against corruption. Team Anna also demanded investigation of allegations against 1,300 elected representatives (MPs as well as MLAs) across the country against whom criminal charges have been leveled.

Arvind Kejriwal, the core member of Team Anna, named the 14 Union Ministers who, he alleged, were “corrupt.” He himself had no direct evidence of wrongdoing on their party, but there have been allegations in newspapers and on television, and they needed to be investigated.

Indian Express listed out the 14 Union Ministers whom Kejriwal named corrupt and the specific charges against them. (SiliconIndia takes no stand on these allegations, but just lists out the names as given by Kejriwal. As it is in the public domain, it can evoke a public discourse and/or litigation.

1. P Chidambaram:

Chidambaram was one of the 14 ministers on the list, for his alleged controversial role in the 2G scam, and the charge that his wife (a lawyer) defended a Kolkata businessman named Kashinath Tapuria in an income tax claim of 580 crore.

Last year in September, referring to Chidambaram’s involvement in the scam, anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare said "Had there been a Jan Lokpal now, Chidambaram would have been in jail." Referring to the same, Kejriwal named him on the list.

2: All these ministers have been voted by people and they won elections.People dont mind corruption or any wrong doing as long as their work is done. It is only when even after paying a bribe, work is not done then they get angry.Most people in india support this chai-pani culture which has now grown into crores of rupees. Corruption is in-built into people's mindset and cannot be defeated by lokpal bill. It can only be rooted out if there is fully cashless economy possible.So every deal would become white as people will have no option but to register with banks. That is the only real solution against fighting corruption

11: who so ever commented on the point of corruption, they all have fogotten that how corrupts have been elected or nominated at the treasury post.Recall the days when voter cards is being made. In the line, I have seen most of the illeterate person are getting voter card where as the literate voters are subjected to objection on various ground and they are being refused to get VOTER CARD.Lateron - particulary in illeterate state like Jharkhand,M.P.,C.G. - people are getting Voter Card at the cost of Rs.1000/- with the help of Bada Babu,chota babu, peon clerk etc.etc. because the leterate has to migrate from India to elsewhere. Now when Election comes-the uneducated persons are using their right to vote by selling theirs right at the cost of 50/- or 100/-+ perks .Under such circumstance how one can expect a fair person in Agust House.What we have to do is to bring some need basis changes in the Constitution of India. Otherwise the days are not far away when the Union of India will be devided like USSR and corruption will multiply to its largest extent.The present UPA has imposded service tax at its largest. Do you thing the time is coming when a air meter will be installed in House or residential locality , which will measure how much Oxygen has been inhalled and carbon and such other gaseous items have been emitted by you. On this matter- service tax shall be charged. Even if we voted to other national or state party- they will follow the suit.Thus we have to bring the people amongst ourselves and the voting system has to be changed. Other wise discussion on these corrupt leader will not solve the problem of AAM ADMI .

13: The 14 ministers named by Anna Hazare Team is only the beginning, we can add another 14 or more ministers to this list.

The list will go on increasing, since we have a lot of black sheep.

For example, Mr. Subbramani Reddy from Hyderabad has built number of commercial (named (TSR) in Hyderabad.

When he was chairman of TTD he did not want to quit but complete his full term (to make money).

His name should also be listed.

The public should give full support to Anna Hazare team and send signed petitions to the President to take action against these ministers. Further, the public should appeal to the Supreme Court to investigate, since the President is only a dummy.
Unless support is given to Anna Hazare team UPA government will try all means to suppress these allegations and let the ministers go scotch-free.

22: Misusing Lokpal for personal revenge will be the order of the day when the Lokpal bill is passed. There are privileged position in the Govt against whom Lokpal cannot do anything. Example, murder case pending on President who is now guaranteed immunity from any kind of prosecution. Many amendments are required which will take a long time going by the way the Parliament is functioning with no political party having a majority to pass the bill single handed. Since Independence there are numerous examples of personal vendetta while the crooks have always got away. Lokpal will go the same way - those very people pushing for it will fight like cat and dog to get their person appointed as a Lokpal. Do people know the negative side of those people who are currently posing as agents against corruption?

23: You can never jail any Union Minster like Chidambaram,or Sonia , reason being we need a Leader like JP to lead a Movement at present to dethrone this UPA Govt. which is most Corrupt Govt. in the world. or other wise we need a Dictator like man to jail all the Corrupt politicians in India. Will this ever happen?. God only Knows.

25: I request Anna & his party to contest for the next MP elections and become the Law Makers and pass the lok pal bill in whatever manner,content and format he likes to have. Please requesst him to win the elctios such that his party has two third majority in the HOUSE to pass all the bills against coruption. If he has any hidden agenda to bring any one political party to power then GOD will punish him.

31: Do you people think all the corruption will come to an end if the Lokpal bill is in force. I don't think so. I am sure that the people who have control on the Lokpal will be in the top list of corrupted people when it is in force. The corporate's needs to bribe one more person to get the things done on their behalf if the Lokpal comes to effect. That's the only change I can see.

32: Of course, It is absolutely right. Politician have no right to eat public money. All corrupted people should be publicly hanged until death.So, that there would be a great lesson for all.

37: The government is afraid of exposing the corrupt ministers since they fully support the UPA government.
Accusing Anna Hazare team of exposing these corrupt ministers is not justified, since the Anna Team has the courage to do so.
The UPA government should introduce the strong Lokpal bill in the parliament.

The people will not elect such corrupt ministers in future.
