In the last few years, we have seen concerned citizens of India and honest politicians working hard to end corruption in India. Corruption is widespread and it is definitely not easy to eradicate it. However, thanks to their clear vision, we are one step closer to being a corrupt-free nation. In 2011, Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal managed to upload the 23rd version of the Jan Lokpal Bill draft and on February 3, 2014, the Delhi Cabinet cleared the draft Jan Lokpal Bill. And today, the Aam Aadmi Party is planning to pass this Bill in a special session at the Indira Gandhi Stadium.
