Vision Statement- Aam Aadmi Party
Often than never, suggestions are aplenty but course of action to realise the desired in terms of security, justice and dignity of living is a distant dream in the light of rampant corruption practiced.
Civil society is vigilant against corruption by protesting, complaining. Annaji raised voice against corruption - Action taken by Govt. police and/or judiciary is far from any relief under the present scenario that has been inherited from the British Raj (As rightly stated by one member, it is not independence that India achieved but "TRANFER OF POWER IN FAVOR OF CERTAIN VESTED INTERESTS" who are bleeding the great democracy of India.
Anticorruption is not the only plank to address these issues, and to give freedom from the possible penal action of stringent nature is a healthy one for the society and not a deterrent unless the perpetrator is in the wrong doinng. If there is no fear of catastrophic penal action, then there is no meaning for promulgating any Law which becomes purely academic to adorn the shelves in a Library
What the growing democracy of India needs is the strongest Law for enforcement with the highest of penal action based even on prima facie evidence. As one Retired Commissioner of Police Delhi stated in the matter of suspending a few tainted (exposed) police officers; they ought to have been terminated from service and not just suspended.
Anti corruption may remain in the top rung of any redresal activity and is not a negative factor for any developmental activity. If the Govt. or the officials are doing the right things without snatching or depriving the COMMON MAN but are benefiting their livelihood, then where is the question of any fear of interference or law suit? more
A vision statement is very important. And for central government, the most important objective is to make this country secure, wealthier, and create conditions for social mobility of all sections of the society.
I full endorse the desire of civil society to be vigilant against corruption. The civil society has a right to take action against corruption as Mr Anna has done. However one must remember that this issue should not become a millstone around the neck of this country, to stop all development and progress.
If this issue becomes too prominent and the only significant objective, as it has become in the case of AAP, no politician or civil servant will take any decisions for execution of developmental projects, due to fear of interference and lawsuits. more
