Rewari (Har): Noted lawyer and Rajya Sabha
member Ram Jethmalani on Sunday said that being an octogenarian
his last wish is to see all the corrupt "white-clad looters"
behind the bars.
India is not a poor country as publicised frequently, it
had been impoverished by white-clad "looters" who have amassed
immense wealth with impunity, Jethmalani said.
He said that being an octogenarian, his life`s last
ambition was to see all these "looters" behind the bars before
he passed away.
Describing the success of Anna Hazare`s crusade against
corruption as a victory of the people`s commitment, Jethmalani
pointed out that only those, who were steeped in corruption,
were opposing Anna`s move while explaining that the Lok Pal
bill was only a stepping stone to the concerted fight ahead,
against rampant corruption.
Jethmalani, former union law minister, was speaking at a
function of Somany Institute of Technology and Management
(SITM) here yesterday.
Exhorting the youths in particular to come forward and
dauntlessly challenge these "looters" like the septuagenarian
Hazare, he said that if they succeeded in bringing the
"enormous black money stashed in foreign banks, back into the
country, the financial woes of the people here would end in no
"Democracy in India would be fortified only when the
citizens here would be able to speak out the truth fearlessly
and stand up for a rightful cause like Gandhian Anna Hazare,"
