Further to above text, I would request your kind self to take a note of functioning of Maharashtra universities keeping in view the issue of apathy in particular. The method of appointments to the top post of universities, mental set up of entire education department officials must be looked into. System needs correction very badly. Lots of innocent lives have been played with very badly.
Dear Mr. Gupta,
1. Main issue remains as our country is governed by the politicians who are illiterate and mostly criminals. Present governance system has been devised by them for their own benefit. It neither follows any transparent routes nor they have any intention to do that, forget about any statesman's vision. All state governance should be taken out from the clutches of these people. Though it is extremely difficult proposition but work should start in that direction right now. That is why India's position is around 142 out of around 158 total countries under UN. That simply means only few countries in the world are more corrupt compared to India.
2. State Government means a bunch of absolutely corrupt officials appointed by most corrupt people I. e. politicians. How the people are recruited? By quota system who are most useless of the lot. Many a times state government bosses take money for appointments. The result declared by them is totally farse. So this is very serious issue.
3. The illiteracy in our country and lack of awareness are the main hardless to our development. The models of developed countries like US can be adapted. They have right type of people in right places. They have appropriate laws in place, right type of governing machinery in place. They use latest technology also. In India you will find nothing but corruption every where.
4. In Maharashtra you will find so much of property is owned by the administraters cum politiciants, all acquired by the public money. Municipalitis are run few individuals. Absolutely obscured methods. Nobody knows where the public money goes? But if you see the condition of roads, electricity supply efficiency, water supply amount, cleanliness every where administration is failing. In little bit interior Maharashtra, the apathy to the non-maharashtrins are paramount. It has taken very ugly shape during last 10 years or so. Non-Maharashtrins are being harassed every where right from domicile issuance offices to any universities to even the petty auto stands where the local politicians along with the local boys conduct the jungle raj. It is even come to a state that even if a non-maharashtrian boy who is resident for last 30/40 years is carrying passangers, his people are forcibly are removed from the autos at some strong hold points. So the state governments are some states like maharashtra are simply dirty, anarchic and un-civilised. Above autos I have just referred never run by meters.
5. So there has to be provision for capital punishment for economic offences also. I think in country like Singapore and USA this type of provisions already exists. The working style and performance of P
Los Angeles Police Deptt and Germany must be studied. Recent police efficiency in US on a religious event speaks volume about their efficiency.
6. Any way this is very complex and difficult area to clean. Please take a note on above areas.
26. Fast computerization of all State Government Departments. Centre should have access to this and can monitor the day to day activities.
26. To put a stop to corruption all big denomination notes of Rs.100, 500 and 1000 to be withdrawn from circulation permanently. No other steps can curb corruption. more
