Allard Prize winner Anna Hazare.
The University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law at Allard Hall presented Anna Hazare, one of India’s most influential social activists, with the inaugural Allard Prize for International Integrity at a special ceremony last night.
The $100,000 prize is one of the world’s largest awards recognizing efforts to combat corruption and to promote human rights.
“My lifelong mission to fight corruption and promote transparency is stronger for having received this award,” said Mr. Hazare. “I have never been attracted to money and wealth, but the Allard Prize will help me and all those that are working towards the same cause to continue the fight. I am hopeful that this international recognition will promote a movement for change that will endure beyond my lifetime for generations to come.”
Established in October 2012 by UBC Law alumnus Mr. Peter A. Allard, QC, the Allard Prize is awarded to an individual, movement or organization that has shown exceptional courage and leadership in combating corruption, especially through promoting transparency, accountability and the rule of law.
“We are honoured to present the inaugural Allard Prize to Mr. Hazare in recognition of his outstanding leadership and courage in his fight against corruption and for improved government transparency and accountability,” said Mr. Allard.  “His work exemplifies the values of the Allard Prize, and his lifelong record of service and dedication has made a significant and lasting impact on the advancement of human rights.”
For decades, Anna Hazare has led successful movements across India to enhance government transparency and investigate and prosecute official corruption. TIME Magazine named the 2011 movement he started one of the Top World News Stories of 2011.
The other finalists, Dr. Sima Samar, an internationally celebrated advocate for human and women’s rights, and Global Witness, an organization campaigning against natural resource-related conflict and corruption and associated environmental and human rights abuses, were each awarded $25,000 for their efforts in protecting human rights and fighting corruption.
Additional quotes
“UBC Law has a deep and longstanding history of advancing human rights,” says UBC Law Dean Mary Anne Bobinski. “Faculty members have been pioneers protecting the human rights of women, indigenous communities and the rights of victims of crime around the world. We are honoured to recognize the work of these community leaders in the fight against corruption and for the protection of human rights.”

Letter to PM for Janlokpal & Citizen's Charter (Translated)


Date: 21st September 2013
Hon’ble Dr. Manmohan Singh ji.
Prime Minister of India,
New Delhi - 110001.

Subject : Regarding a letter dated 03/09/2013 sent by Shri. Narayansami through your office.

Respected Dr. Manmohan Singh ji,
Received above mentioned letter sent by your office. The points mentioned in the letter are not based on the truth. The points are written just to confuse the people.
The truth is that JanLokpal Bill was passed in Loksabha on 27/12/2011 by everybody’s consent. It was presented for discussion in Rajyasabha on 29/12/2011. Earlier in one of your letter you have mentioned that there was no action on this Bill for five months. You also have agreed to this fact.
On 21/5/2012 a select committee was formed by Rajyasabha and the Bill was sent to them. The Bill was presented in Rajyasabha on 29/12/2011 and almost after one year select committee presented its report on 23/11/2012. Twelve months’ time is passed in getting select committee’s report but still no firm action is taken.
The president of the select committee was from your party only. Also few more members of select committee were from your party. If government would have tried there would not have been such a long delay in select committee’s report. But government doesn’t wish to pass  JanLokpal Bill and this is the reason for delay.
After the select committee presented its report in Rajyasabha, by making amendments as per recommendations in the report this Bill could have been passed in Rajyasabha. But due to the lack of interest by government this Bill could not be passed in budget session. After select committees report there was no hurdle to present this Bill in budget session, only discussion on it was pending.
After budget session, your office sent us a letter dated 24 July 2013 and told us that efforts are being taken to pass JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bills in this monsoon session.
In this monsoon session your government passed many Bills like Bhoomi Adhigrahan Bill, Food Security Bill, Bill allowing individuals lodged in jails to contest elections, Pension Bill etc., but JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bills are not passed. It is very unfortunate that for your government Bill allowing individuals lodged in jails to contest elections is more important than JanLokpal Bill.
It is very clear that, government does not wish to pass JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bills.
Select committee had sent their report on 23/11/2012. As per select committees recommendations this Bill should have been presented in parliament in monsoon session of 2012 i.e. last year.
This Bill was not presented in monsoon session of 2012 but even after one year it was supposed to be passed in this monsoon session of 2013, now the monsoon session of the year 2013 is also over but select committee’s recommendations are not discussed in parliament.
The government is purposefully avoiding this Bill.
Though in the beginning of this monsoon session only your office’s minister Narayansami ji had told us that there will be discussion in Rajyasabha on JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bill in this session. But this did not happen.
It is very clear that government does not wish to pass this Bill. If it would have been government’s wish, though there was a delay in presenting this Bill in Rajyasabha, as per the provision in Indian Constitution the Bill which is passed in Loksabha and is being kept on hold by Rajyasabha for more than six months, then on minister’s recommendation they can call for a joint meeting of President’s House. And there could be a discussion in house on the Bill.
But no joint meeting of house was called to avoid today’s situation. JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bills are being kept on hold at select committee level purposefully.
Government is purposefully not giving any deadline to present recommendations of select committee in the house. It is inappropriate for the government that nine months are taken just to discuss the report of select committee which was presented on 23/11/2012. After select committee’s report was submitted, only discussion in house was pending to pass the Bill, but the Bill was kept hanging in Rajyasabha, no work was done about it. Now nine months are passed and still no efforts are being taken.
The point to be noted is that the Bill is not passed even after monsoon session was extended by six days. So it is very clear that government has purposefully kept this Bill hanging in Rajyasabha.
To stop my fasting you have promised me and all countrymen in writing that your government will pass JanLokpal as soon as possible. This promise is not kept. Your party president Smt. Soniya Gandhi ji also had promised that JanLokpal Bill will be passes at earliest. But till today it is proved as empty promise only and people are cheated.
In this situation, to pass JanLokpal Bill, people doesn’t have any other option than agitation. Hence I will start my fasting with people of this country at Ramlila maidan in Delhi.

Warm Regards,
K.B. Hazare (Anna)


Date: 21st September 2013
Hon’ble Dr. Manmohan Singh ji.
Prime Minister of India,
New Delhi - 110001.

Subject: Regarding Citizens Charter Bill 2011.

Respected Dr. Manmohan Singh ji,
Along with me, people of this country are agitating and demonstrating since 16th August 2011. There was discussion in both the houses of Parliament on 27th August 2011 and everybody has agreed on three issues - JanLokpal, Citizens Charter and appointing Lokayuktas in all states.
Two years are passed but there is no action on JanLokpal and Lokayukta except giving promises by writing letters. These bills are of utmost importance for the country but still it is not passed. 
In beginning, you mentioned about everybody’s consent on all three issues but government decided to pass Citizens Charter Bill separately. There is a long delay in passing JanLokpal and Lokayukta Bills. I have mentioned about this in last letter also.
Citizens charter Bill was presented in Loksabha on 20th December 2011. Parliament’s standing committee presented its report regarding ‘Personnel & Public Grievances’ and ‘Law & Justice’ departments on 28th August 2012. One year is passed and still there is no action on this Bill.

You have promised us in a letter dated 27/11/2011, but all three issues are still pending. Even after a long delay of two years, Prime Minister has not kept his promise. You have promised us in writing on 27th August 2011 at Ramlila maidan, but all these issues are still pending even after two years. There is a resolution passed in the Parliament and Prime Minister of country promises us in writing and if these promises are not kept then it is a subject of worry.
Citizens Charter is a very important issue for people of this country. If any common man goes to any government office for some work then s/he can’t get it done without paying money. Everybody is distressed. In this situation, Citizens Charters Bill should be passed at earliest and it is very important for people of this country. Two years are passed after 27th August 2011. It is very unfortunate that such an important bill is still not passed. For government the Bill allowing individuals lodged in jails to contest elections is more important than Citizens Charters Bill. This is very unfortunate for people of this country. Now, I will be thankful to you if I could know what are the hurdles in passing Citizens Charter Bill?
Even after your promise, there is no action on these three issues, and due to this all people of this country are distressed. Hence, all people along with me will start agitation once again.
Thank You.

Warm Regards,

K.B. Hazare (Anna)

Letter to PM for Jan Lokpal (English Translation)

(English Translation)
Honourable Dr. Monmohan Singhji,
Prime Minister, Government of India
Subject: Regarding letter no. D.O.NO.407/67/2012-AVD-IV (B) Dated 24 July 2013 sent by your office, promising to table Jan Lokpal Bill in this session.
Dear Sir,
In your above-mentioned letter you have promised that efforts are being made to table Jan Lokpal Bill in this Monsoon Session of Parliament. Now the Monsoon Session has been concluded but Jan Lokpal Bill has not been tabled. The people of country, who were waiting hopefully, once again get nothing but stark disappointment.
There is a provision in the Constitution that if a bill is cleared by Lok Sabh but not cleared by Rajya Sabha for more than six month, then the President on the recommendation of the Cabinet can call a joint Session of Parliament.
Had the Government been sincere, it could have taken this path for the Jan Lokpal Bill. The pervasive corruption in the country has made lives of common people miserable. It is corruption that is at the root of ever-increasing inflation. From the money meant for the development work not even 10 paise out of 1 rupee is spend on the programme it is meant for. How the country will develop?
That was the reason why the people of the country decided to bring forth Jan Lokpal law. When on 16 August 2011 I started my hunger strike at the Ramlila Ground, demanding a powerful Jan Lokpal law, the people from all over the country had jumped into the movement; millions were on the road in support. This was because the issue on which I was on hunger strike was the inner voices of 120 crore people. And this was the reason that for the first time since attainment of Independence such a large number of people, especially the youth, came out on the streets. The youth of the country wish to build a corruption-free country.
Whenever millions of people come out on the streets, the clouds of danger hover over the government. Perhaps sensing this danger, a parliament session was called and a resolution was passed on 27 December 2011 in Parliament to bring about legislation for Citizen Charter, bring officers of class A to D under the ambit of Lokpal, and enactment of Lokayukta act in every state.
In your signed letter of 27 December 2011, you had informed me that a resolution has been passed and Parliament has arrived at a consensus on all three issues, and that we’ll get Jan Lokpal Bill immediately passed in the Winter Session. Since then one session after another passed and the third Winter Session is approaching, but the Jan Lokpal Bill could not see the light of day.
I broke my fast trusting your letter. Had I been aware that your Government will cheat 120 crore people of this country, I would not have broken the fast.
The Government has got the Land Acquisition Bill, the Food Security Bill, the bill enabling one to contest elections even after being languished in jail and the Pension Bill passed from this session of Parliament, but the Jan Lokpal Bill has not been tabled. Obviously, the government does not wish to table the Jan Lokpal Bill. On many occasion I have written letters to you in this regard, but the government keep pointing its finger towards Rajya Sabha.
If after being passed unanimously from Lok Sabha on 27 August the bill could not passed even in two years from Rajya Sabha, then it can be infer that the government is blocking it willfully.
In the past the Jan Lokpal Bill was tabled in Parliament in 2001, 2005 and 2007 when your party was in power but could not get it passed. And the only impediment in the way of passage of this bill is lack of will power of the government. Again the bill has been sent to Rajya Sabha for its accent after being passed unanimously from Lok Sabha on 27 August, and now it is stuck in the Select Committee of Rajya Sabha. It is not being moved forward by design.
As per the constitutional provision the honourable President on recommendation of the Cabinet could have called a joint session of Parliament when the Jan Lokpal Bill could not passed from Rajya Sabha in more than six month time. Our Constitution favours such steps. But the government is willing to enact Jan Lokpal Bill; therefore it has deliberately stalled the bill.
I humbly request to you by convening cabinet meeting urge the honourable President to convene joint session of both the houses of Parliament, which should be only for a powerful Jan Lokpal. This can save from the stigma of deception.
But Jan Sansad is superior to both the government and Parliament. Once again will go to the Jan Sansad through people and tell them how the government deliberately stalled the Jan Lokpal Bill.
Once again I will exhort people to initiate a movement similar to the Ramlila Ground Movement of  16 August 2011 all over the country. The people of the country have awakened, the youth has awakened. This is high time to build a corruption free India. It is time to struggle for the country.
On the first day of the commencement of the winter Session of Parliament when I’ll start my hunger strike, once again people have to express their support by coming to the Ramlila Ground.
Similarly they have to participate in the movement of their respective states, Districts, tahsils and villages. Now we have to get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed. Once again we have to initiate (spread) a movement similar to that of 16 August 2011. Every citizen of the country has to participate in this movement.

जन लोकपाल के लिए दोनो सदनों की संयुक्त बैठक बुलाओ...

12 सितंबर 2013

सम्माननीय डॉ. मनमोहन सिंह जी
प्रधान मन्त्री, भारत सरकार

विषय : जन लोकपाल बिल के सम्बन्ध में आप के कार्यालय द्वारा प्रेषित पत्र क्र.D.O.No.407/67/2012-AVD-IV (B)  दि. 24 जुलाई 2013 जिस में जनलोकपाल बिल को इसी सत्र में लाने का आश्वासन दिया था।
सस्नेह वन्दे। उपरोल्लेखित पत्र में आप ने आश्वासित किया था कि, जनलोकपाल बिल संसद के इसी वर्षाकालीन सत्र में लाने का आपका पूरा प्रयास है। वर्षाकालीन सत्र अब सम्पन्न हो चुका है, लेकिन जनलोकपाल बिल संसद में पेश नहीं किया गया। उम्मीद लगाए बैठी देश की जनता के भाग्य में फिर से घोर निराशा ही आ गई। संविधान में यह प्रावधान है कि जो विधेयक लोकसभा में पारित हो चुका है, उसे राज्य सभा यदि छह महीने से ज़्यादा समय तक रोक कर रखे, तो राष्ट्रपति महोदय मन्त्री परिषद की अनुशंसा पर सदन की संयुक्त बैठक बुला सकते हैं। सरकार अगर चाहती तो जन लोकपाल बिल के लिए यह रास्ता अपना सकती थी।
 बढते ही जा रहे भ्रष्टाचार के कारण देश की सामान्य जनता का जीना मुश्किल हो गया है। दिन ब दिन बढती जा रही महँगाई की वजह भ्रष्टाचार ही तो है। विकास कार्य के नामपर लगाये जाने वाले धन के एक रुपये में से दस पैसा भी योजना पर नहीं लग रहा। देश का विकास कहॉं से होगा?

इसी वास्ते देश की जनता ने जन लोकपाल कानून बनाने की मॉंग की थी। 16 अगस्त 2011 को सशक्त लोकपाल कानून बने इस मॉंग को ले कर जब मैं रामलीला मैदान पर अनशन कर रहा था, तब देश भर में जनता उस आन्दोलन में कूद पडी थी। करोडों की संख्या में जनता सडक पर उतर आई थी। क्यों कि मेरे अनशन का मुद्दा वही था जो कि इस देश की 120 करोड जनता की अपनी अन्दर की आवाज़ थी। यही वह कारण था जिस की वजह से आज़ादी मिलने के बाद देश में पहली बार इतनी भारी संख्या में लोग सडक पर उतर आए थे। उन में विशेष कर देश की युवा शक्ति का योगदान बहुत बडा था। भ्रष्टाचार मुक्त भारत का निर्माण हो यही तो देश की युवा शक्ति चाहती है।

देश की जनता करोडों की तादाद में सडक पर उतर आती है तो सरकार पर भी खतरे के बादल मँडराने लगते हैं। शायद इसी खतरे को महसूस कर संसद की बैठक बुलवाई गई और ‘‘जनता की सनद, क्लास अ से ड तक के सभी अधिकारियों को लोकपाल के दायरे में लाना और हर राज्य में लोक आयुक्त कानून बनाना’’ इन मुद्दों पर संसद में 27.12.2011 को रेज़ोल्यूशन पारित किया गया।

 27.12.2011 को अपने हस्ताक्षरांकित पत्र में आपने मुझसे यह कहा था कि रेज़ोल्यूशन पास हो चुका है तथा इन तीन मुद्दों पर संसद में सर्व सम्मति बन गई है। हमजल्द से जल्द शीतकालीन सत्र में जन लोकपाल बिल पास करेंगे। तब से ले कर अब तक, एक के बाद एक सत्र होते गए और अब तीसरा शीतकालीन सत्र आने में है। अभी तक जन लोकपाल बिल पास नहीं हुआ है।

आपके पत्र पर विश्वास रख कर मैंने अपना अनशन समाप्त किया। यदि मुझे पता होता कि आपकी सरकार इस देश की 120 करोड आबादी के साथ धोखाधडी करने वाली है तो हरगिज मैंने अनशन नहीं तोडा होता।

 भूमइधिग्रहण बिल, फूड सिक्योरिटी बिल, जेल में बन्द होते हुए भी चुनाव लड सकने की अनुमति देने वाला बिल, पेंशन बिल जैसे कई बिल सरकार ने इस सत्र में पास करवा लिये हैं, लेकिन जन लोकपाल बिल नहीं लाया गया। ज़ाहिर है कि जन लोकपाल बिल लाने की सरकार की मंशा ही नहीं है। कई बार आपको इस विषय में पत्र लिख चुका हूं, मगर सरकार है कि बार बार राज्य सभा की ओर उंगली उठाती रहती है।

27 अगस्त को लोक सभा में सर्व सम्मति से पारित होने पश्चात्यह बिल दो साल तक राज्य सभा में अटका पडा रहता है, इस पर से तो यही निष्कर्ष निकलता है कि सरकार जान बूझ कर इस बिल को अटका रही है।

पूर्व में जब आप ही की पार्टी की सरकारें सत्तासीन थीं तब यानि कि सन्‌ 2001, 2005 एवम्‌ 2008 में भी जन लोकपाल बिल संसद में पेश किया गया था लेकिन पास नहीं हो पाया था। और इसकी एक मात्र वजह है सरकार के पास इच्छाशक्ति का अभाव होना। अब के भी लोक सभा में 27 अगस्त को सर्व सम्मति से पारित बिल राज्य सभा को भेजा गया है और राज्य सभा की सिलेक्ट कमेटी में अटका के रखा गया है। उसे आगे लाने का प्रयास जान बूझ कर नहीं किया गया है।
 जैसा कि संविधान में प्रावधान है छह महीनों से ज़्यादा समय तक राज्य सभा में पारित हुए बिना पडे रहे जन लोकपाल बिल के लिए अधिक न रुकते हुए राष्ट्रपति महोदय मन्त्री परिषद की अनुशंसा पर संसद की संयुक्त बैठक बुला सकते थे। ऐसी कार्यवाही करनी चाहिये ऐसा हमारा संविधान कहता है। लेकिन चूं कि जन लोकपाल बिल लाने की सरकार की इच्छा ही नहीं है, इस लिए जान बूझ कर सरकार ने इस बिल को अटका कर रखा है। मैं आपसे विनम्र अनुरोध करता हूं कि, आप मंत्रीमंडल की बैठक बुलाकर महामहिम राष्ट्रपति जी से आग्रह करें कि, दोनों सदनों की संयुक्त बैठक बुलाएं और यह बैठक केवल सशक्त जनलोकपाल बिल के लिए ही हो। यह इसलिए आवश्यक है कि, आप और हमारी संसद वादा खिलाफी के कलंक से बच सके।

लेकिन सरकार और संसद से भी सर्वोपरि है जन संसद। जनता की तरफ से मैं अब फिर से जन संसद के सामने जाऊंगा और जनता को बताऊंगा कि कैसे इस सरकार ने जान बूझ कर जन लोकपाल बिल को अटकाया है। फिर एक बार मैं जनता से गुहार लगाऊंगा कि जैसा आन्दोलन 16 अगस्त 2011 को रामलीला मैदान में हुआ था, वैसा आन्दोलन अब पूरे देश भर में होना चाहिए। देश की जनता जागृत हुई है, युवकों में जागृति है। यही समय है भ्रष्टाचार मुक्त भारत के निर्माण का। समय है देश के लिए संघर्ष करने का। संसद के आगामी शीत कालीन सत्र के पहले ही दिन जब रामलीला मैदान में मैं अनशन आरम्भ कर दूंगा, उस व़क्त फिर एक बार जनता को रामलीला मैदान में उतर कर अपना समर्थन प्रकट करना है।
वैसे ही अपने अपने राज्यों में, ज़िलों में, तहसीलों में, गॉंवों में आन्दोलन में शरीक होना है। अब तो जन लोकपाल बिल को ला कर ही रहना है। फिर एक बार 16 अगस्त 2011 जैसा विशाल आन्दोलन देश में चौतरफा फैलाना है। देश के हर नागरिक ने इस आंदोलन में शामिल होना है।

जन लोकपाल के बारे में प्रधानमंत्री जी को चिठ्ठी

3 सितंबर 2013

प्रतिष्ठा में,
श्री.मनमोहन सिंहजी,
प्रधानमंत्री, भारत सरकार,
नई दिल्ली-110001
विषय- जनलोकपाल के बारे में आपका ता.24 जुलाई 2013 का पत्र...

सम्माननीय महोदय,
सस्नेह वन्दे।
 आपके कार्यालय द्वारा 24 जुलाई 2013 को प्रेषित पत्र में आपने सूचित किया है कि जनलोकपाल बिल लोकसभा में ता.27 दिसंबर 2011 को पारित हो चुका है। तथा राज्य सभा कि सिलेक्ट कमेटी ने भी उसपर अपना मन्तव्य 23 नवम्बर 2012 को पेश किया है।
            उक्त पत्र में आप लिखते हैं कि इस वर्षा सत्र अधिवेशन में बिल पास करने के प्रयास जारी हैं। अधिवेशन की समाप्ति में अब बहुत ज्यादा समय नहीं बचा है।इस सत्र में ही यह बिल पास हो जाना चाहिए। क्यों कि जब दोनों ही सदनों द्वारा अपना अहवाल पेश किया जा चुका है,तब कोई बाधाएं नहीं रही है।
मैं अनुरोध करता हूं कि आपने लिखित स्वरूप मेंजो वादा किया था,उसे अब पूरा करना है।लोकसभा में सर्व सम्मति से यह पारित हो चुका है।अब अधिक समय गँवाना उचित बात नहीं होगी।
            इस लिए नहीं की ये मेरी माँग है बल्कि भ्रष्टाचार मुक्त भारत निर्माण के लिए और देश के एक सौ बिस करोड जनता कि भी मांग है इसलिए सरकार का यह कर्तव्य बनता है। इसी कर्तव्य भावना से सरकार इसी अधिवेशन में इस बिल को पास कराएं, यही मेरी मनोकामना है। अपेक्षा है।
