Kalam vs Anna: Kalam method will take 22 years?

In connection with the former Indian President, APJ Abdul Kalam’s doubts over Lokpal Bill strengths, Anna Hazare reiterates that the anti-corruption legislation is pivotal to curb the corrupt and the lasting solution depends in bestowing good education to all children and youth.

From the temple town of Shirdi, Hazare ventured a 35 days statewide tour yesterday told in a public meeting that he agrees with Kalam’s views that “children and youth can eradicate corruption from the country.”

Hazare said, "I agree that corruption can be weeded out if value education is imparted to children, but it will take at least 22 years. In short term, we need Jan Lokpal to boot out corruption.”

While interacting with children in Ranchi, Kalam said, "What Lokpal will do is if it finds anyone guilty it would put them in jail, and jails will be filled up. What we want is nobody should go to jail ... as we want good human beings."
Designating Kalam's statement as a "long term" solution, Hazare said the Lokpal Bill will work as a "first aid" to check the corrupt.

Hazare also said, "What he (Kalam) said is correct. I have also been saying that every family must become a unit of moral values. It will take over 22 years to see the effect of the virtues children have learnt from their families. However, that is a long-term solution, in short term, we need a first-aid to stop corruption."

Throughout the course of 35 days statewide tour, Hazare interacts with the people addressing corruption related issues and the necessity for a strong Lokayukta Bill.(msn)
