An Unknown Indian's View on Jan Lokpal Bill
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick Bookmark and Share
 

At the outset I must confess that I have no political leaning. What I love most is an effort by anybody, may he be in politics, literature, social service, sports or any other field, that makes us feel proud. The recent victory in cricket world championship after 28 years or a good showing by Indians in Asiad, winning medals by young students in Math Olympiard are some instances.

When an individual like Virender Sehwag or Sachin Tendulkar or Saina Nehwal can bring floods of cheer in the mind of every Indian, why can't the highly educated, erudite and elite bureaucrats and duly elected and nominated politicos in different states and centre keep up to the expectations of the countrymen? No body wants nor expects them to push the Himalayas, but we do wish no body to raise finger against them, specially for corruption and misuse of power.

Let us analyse the Jan Lokpal Bill. When a law is enacted, according to me, it should broadly fulfill certain criteria, such as 

  1. It should benefit all, common citizen as well as the people in power.
  2. It should be objective. The law-makers should not keep some people in mind while framing them.
  3. The tussle between the govt and Anna Hazare's team centres around whether to bring PM under under its umbrella. Senior bureaucrats wish to be excluded too.

We were told that in 2001 Hon'ble Pranab Mukherjee had approched the then PM Sri Atal Behari Bajpai for his opinion. Mr Bajpai had readily agreed to be under the ambit of the Lokpal Bill. Why not now Hon'ble Pranab Mukherjee meet PM Manmohan Singh for his opinion. That will solve the problem, instead of the uncomfortable mud-slinging that is being reported everyday. 

We, the common citizens, are seen in a bad light the world over. We are hanging our heads in shame with the present happenings in a country that has great tradition of being an honest nation.  This is a land where great sages, prophets, poets, scientists and politician have set their feet in the past.

Keeping this in mind will our duly-elected goverment ensure that India can be a land 'where the mind is without fear and head is held high?
