M for the MMRDA Fiasco
Hazare lost steam at the end of the year when his rally at Mumbai’s MMRDA grounds was a flop. BJP MP Ram Jethmalani commented that the people did not want to see the same show twice. But this will define their next stage of agitation.
M is also for Maun Vrat (vow of silence) which Anna goes on when things get really tricky.
N for News Channels
Where would the news channels be without Anna? Where would Anna be without the news channels? This perfect fit in August 2011 had politicians scrambling to find a way to shut up both parties.
