And it is never about being political or apolitical. Sooner or later, a movement that blends elements of social and political reforms by targeting corruption in every social formation had to take a political turn but not before the required groundwork was done. What started as an apolitical movement in Delhi had to reach to the smaller towns and villages, acquiring political shades in process. Once a considerable clout was there, an announcement made today would certainly be seen as a big-ticket one.
But that would require time and persistence in doing the ground work that the Team Anna never looked doing. Hisar election campaigning or Uttar Pradesh district tours - what they did was just poorly thought expressions of self-motivated aggrandizement.
