There is a raging debate happening online regarding the Lokpal Bill Draft Committee
· Hazare's fast-unto-death is seen as agenda of the Hindutva groups to hit back at the graft-hit Congress. His unsolicited praise of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has only confirmed civil society's apprehensions of him being a RSS's mascot. Even the use of a picture of Bharat Mata in the backdrop was constructed as an indication his ideological leaning: extreme right. Some have raised doubts about his credentials of being a true Gandhian.
· Arvind Kejriwal has been named as a CIA agent; the confirmation of it is the fact that Ford Foundation funds his NGO, Parivartan. That is not true as the support comes from the Tata Group and Infosys Foundation. The conflict of interest issue against IITain Kejriwal is that he will discuss the bill with Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, his wife's big boss who is an Indian Revenue Service officer; most damaging of all that he draws salary from government of India after five years of his tendering resignation from Indian Revenue Services. Kejriwal clarifies that he has not drawn any salary or reported for work since 2003. "My resignation from the service has still not been accepted by the government, but I am out of it for once and all," he says. Some interesting suggestions also have come up in discussions like Lokpal and Lok Ayuktas in the states should have a 24X7 call centres.
· Why only these five of which two from the same family? Shanthi Bhusan and Prashant Bhusan are they alone the legal luminaries.
· Why no representation from rural areas, of women and schedule caste and tribes.
