New Delhi: Coming out in support of Anna
Hazare, former Prime Minister I K Gujral on Tuesday said the
Gandhian`s campaign against corruption has made the common man
feel empowered and realise that he can be an "agent of change"
in the society.
In a letter to Hazare, Gujral appreciated his "singular
effort to galvanise" the entire nation of the issue of
fighting corruption, which has spread to every organ of the
society like a "cancer".

"I dare say that your clarion call has stirred our nation
in a manner that is reminiscent of our Independence struggle,
when young and old, rich and the poor selflessly dedicated
themselves for the success of a movement that shaped our
future," he said in the letter.
Noting that a "corrupt nation" cannot stay great for any
sustained period, he said, "This is a decisive time and if our
Parliament does not act now, history and posterity will not
forgive us for squandering away our golden moment".

Recalling that he made a similar appeal to the people 14
years ago from the ramparts of Red Fort, Gujral said, "What a
Prime Minister could not achieve, a humble Gandhian has
managed to -- that is the essence of this nation`s greatness".
