Year 1992- Transiting Rahu was again in Scorpio and Ketu in Taurus

Notions have been there that Babur built a mosque in the place where Lord Rama was born. Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP party) taking the cause made efforts to reclaim the site for Hindus where they wanted to erect a temple dedicated to the infant Rama (Ramlalla).

Anti Corruption movement led by Anna Hazare.
In 2011, again a massive mass movement is gaining momentum since April 5, 2011 with Anna Hazare, a prominent social activist is on “Anshan”. This time it is Indian anti corruption movement. The protests have been centered on a proposed bill, called the Jan Lokepal Bill, which if drafted, legislated and executed properly can address the issue of corruption in effective manner. The protesters are of the opinion that the government is trying to dilute proposals contained in the original draft of the Jan Lokpal bill. They believe that the changes would make the body, no more than a powerless advisory body in the Indian bureaucracy.
The demand is for creation of a joint drafting committee for the bill, with members from both "civil society" and Government.
If one looks at planetary transits in months to come, Sun signifying royal power is moving as neechabhilashi (moving towards its debilitation sign) and eventually turn debilitated in next few months indicates Government shall listen to Voice of people. With this Saturn is transiting towards its exaltation sign and will eventually attain exalted state in November 2011 indicating mass efforts are going to turn strong in coming days with Government on defensive mode.
With all these events happening after an interval of around 18 years the next phase of popular Mass protests can be witnessed around Year 2030.
