An Unknown Indian's View on Jan Lokpal Bill
|by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick|
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.
Let us analyse the Jan Lokpal Bill. When a law is enacted, according to me, it should broadly fulfill certain criteria, such as
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?
