Anna's fight is our fight. Let's support him and make it a hit

I agree with Abhijit Majumder's view in Our moment of truth (April 9) that just the formation of a committee to look into corruption cases won't solve the problem.

I agree with Abhijit Majumder's view in Our moment of truth (April 9) that just the formation of a committee to look into corruption cases won't solve the problem. Though the heroic gesture of Anna Hazare has made people aware of their constitutional rights, his efforts will go to waste if we don't keep the fire burning. Jayaprakash Narayan had also initiated a similar movement in the early 70s. But it fizzled out due to the non-participation of the masses. Time has given us another chance. Let's make the most of it.

The editorial Rage against the Machine (Our Take, April 9) makes a convincing case for public anger against corrupt politicians. Anna Hazare's fast for the passage of the Lokpal Bill has set a right precedent and given a ray of hope to the billions of Indians who are suffering due to corruption. It has also exposed the government's lackadaisical attitude towards taking action against tainted ministers. Above all, Hazare has proved that Mahatma Gandhi's teachings are relevant even in the 21st century.

Bringing sunshine into our lives
The report Solar energy to solve city's power woes (April 9) is welcome. The Delhi government's proposal to utilise solar energy to answer the city's growing energy needs is well-timed. It should make it mandatory for multi-storeyed residential apartments and commercial hubs to install solar cells to meet at least 50% of their electricity demands. The government should have proposed the idea a couple of years ago. By now, it would have helped the capital not only save hundreds of megawatts of electricity but also curb pollution.
