V.K. Singh, Anna demand dissolution of Parliament

V.K. Singh, Anna demand dissolution of Parliament
Mumbai, Oct 29 (CMC) Launching a blistering attack on the Union government, anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare and the former Army Chief, General V.K. Singh, on Monday termed the government “unconstitutional” and called for dissolution of Parliament.

With Mr. Hazare beside him, General Singh said the existing governmental system had completely disregarded the soul and spirit of the Constitution.

“People have completely lost faith in the government on the issues of land, water, forest and mineral wealth due to rivers being privatised, forests being sold to private companies and tribal people being displaced from their traditional habitat,” he said, reading out from a joint statement prepared by Mr. Hazare and himself.

The duo would tour the country from January 30 to “awaken masses” to their programme of choosing their able representatives who would take up their causes in Parliament. “In every recent decision, be it FDI in the retail sector or the hike in diesel price, the UPA government had been in a minority,” said General Singh. He accused Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of ignoring the principle of collective responsibility.
