Tracing the leakage
Please click here to read the previous articles of Fix India Movement.
After reading about Fix India Movement, our readers are excited and curious to know about the goal of such movement and how it can be achieved ?
So before answering this, let us see - how severe is the damage in the current system ?
In one of the forums , I read a reaction from an esteemed member Chilukuri V <vmchilukuri at yahoo.co.uk> as follows:
The onus of Government of India tells the STORY of Indian Democracy! If this is the stance of educated, wise???, rich, and elite politicians, one can imagine what anybody can expect from the ordinary hard working middle class and hardly resourceful poor Indian. With this circumvent attitude of GOI and politicians they cease the authority and moral right to prosecute and punish the public for either criminal misconduct or corruption!
Half a billion Indians can learn an important lesson from issue and this matter and use it in their life to earn the daily bread.
I don't think rich and famous will do anything on this matter, but I am sure if the educated and patriotic youth of next generation keep it in mind whether they choose to live or leave India!
So after reading this I was curious to know, what is so bad in Indian democracy that he is believing that the next generation must plan to quit(leave) India.
Here is what was published in a news portal.
New Delhi, April 3: Government submitted before the Supreme Court that there did not exist any convention under the Constitutional scheme that a minister charged with commission of serious offence by a court of law should resign.
The Centre's submission to this effect came during the hearing of a PIL challenging the induction of tainted MPs as ministers in the Union Cabinet.
Addressing a Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Solicitor General G E Vahanvati, also contended that there cannot be an inquiry about the existence of such convention as it was not raised in the pleadings and it could be decided by a five-judge Constitution Bench to which the matter has already been referred.
The Centre was responding to the question raised by senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, who is assisting the court as an amicus curaie in the matter, whether there exists a Constitutional convention that ministers charged with serious offence should resign from his office.
The Solicitor General submitted that convention play important role, particularly in an unwritten Constitution, in controlling the exercise called Parliamentary prerogative.
However, he said convention have to emanate from the institution to which they relate and it cannot be enforced by the courts but can only be debated in Parliament.
He said a convention that tainted MP should resign as a minister cannot be assumed but has to be established.
However, Dwivedi said there should be a clear convention that a person should not continue as minister on being charge sheeted and gave an instance of the Chief Minister of a state who resigned when he was to face trial in criminal case but later became a minister at Centre.
Similarly Parkash Singh Badal recently assumed the office of Punjab Chief Minister despite the apex court refusing to stay his prosecution in criminal case, he said.
The PIL filed by Manoj Narula had said that the ministers being required to carry out important Constitutional functions, should be of impeccable integrity.
The Solicitor General, who was earlier asked to take instruction on the issue of submitting before it the N N Vohra Committee report, said it was already a subject matter of the court in an another case.
The court wanted to know whether the Centre could file in a sealed cover the recommendations of Vohra Committee which went into the criminalisation of politics.
Vahanvati said the court had accepted the submission that material on which the Vohra Committee report was based could not be released.
The court, which earlier had maintained that the question of tainted ministers was an issue of public importance, on Tuesday fixed August 14 to hear it in depth.
The Centre which has defended induction of ‘tainted ministers’ in the Union Cabinet, on the ground that there are no judicially manageable standards for determining who can be treated as an accused or rather a tainted person till the conviction, was asked to respond to the questions put forward by the amicus curiae.
If you are a real patriot, you need to answer the question. Whether any political party in India has the courage to bring a law to ban the entry of tainted ministers or politicians to state assembly or parliaments. The current constitution is full of loop holes and there is no driving force to bring amendments for fixing major leaks in this constitution.
We have seen how a desperate Mulayam Singh was trying to delay the long hand (?) of law in the disproportionate asset case. How Lalu-Rabidi due acquitted in a similar case. How desperate Jayalalitha was to block the transfer of her similar cases to Karnataka high court ? Please see this video of Andhra CM YSR, pleading ignorance of his assets.
Many people are keep on shouting at different forums about the system. There are probably several organisations are working like "Wada Na Todo". But they forget to judge , to whom they are requesting "Wada Na Todo" (Fulfill your promise).
Recently, the Higher Education Minister Shir Sameer Dey, who lied in affidavit Page-1 Page-2 but the court said, the FIR is filed after a long delay and hence dismissed the case. But the truth is he lied. The Hinduja's also acquitted by court due to technical lapse. And in Taj Corridor case we have seen how CBI did flip-flop ? Truth is the so called long hand of law is not enough to reach powerful and influential persons.
The current system needs a complete overhaul and that only we can do.
Where there is a will there is a way. There are several organisations , who are already working towards this goal and to unite all of them, we needed a people's media and that is what www.HindToday.com is. We are going to form a great intellectual e-Force and choose community leaders, by imparting leadership training. Then these leaders will stand as FIM candidate and fight elections with our intellectual force. We believe, many of you will be ready to take a day off from your work and start campaign for a FIM candidate, if you realise that his election as a FIM candidate is going to make a very little difference to the system. And for this - we need to develop a hidden current to directly intrude people's mind and win their confidence. Then , let the leaders arrange truck load of people for their election meetings. We will invade the parliament with our hidden current and finally the election result will speak the truth.
So soon we will be bringing a FIM registration form to initiate registration. What we want ? We just want you to develop as an honest leader - whether you want to be a community leader, campaigner, MP or MLA. But we need leaders and at HT, we mean it.
Now as a reader -we want your honest feedback. Do you think that FIM will work ? Please Register here and then post a comment here. What you believe. Your feedback is important to us.
