We, the undersigned, wish to express our strong support to passing of the legislation - Jan LokPal Bill . We strongly believe that this type of legislation perpetuates the accountability and transparency in the Indian Administrative System. The current LokPal Bill must be revised if we as a society want to encourage openness and acceptance within our culture

The Jan Lokpal Bill (Citizen's ombudsman Bill) is a draft anti-corruption bill drawn up by prominent civil society activists seeking the appointment of a Jan Lokpal, an independent body that would investigate corruption cases, complete the investigation within a year and envisages trial in the case getting over in the next one year. 

Drafted by Justice Santosh Hegde (former Supreme Court Judge and present Lokayukta of Karnataka), Prashant Bhushan (Supreme Court Lawyer) and Arvind Kejriwal (RTI activist), the draft Bill envisages a system where a corrupt person found guilty would go to jail within two years of the complaint being made and his ill-gotten wealth being confiscated. It also seeks power to the Jan Lokpal to prosecute politicians and bureaucrats without government permission. 

Anna Hazare is a Hunger Strike ! This petition supports his strike.
