On Eradicating Corruption And Lost Magic Wand…..


We have new government in Delhi. It is hope for people of Delhi. It has come on the promise of eradicating corruption as main plank., it rode on people’s anger against corruption that they face in daily life and exposure of many scams in last a few years. It speaks of Jan lokpal as magic cure for this.

While not doubting their intentions, there are certain points that need to be pondered. One how does AAP propose to eradicate corruption without change in policies nurturing it.  Only a strong law (even this does not guarantee that appointed lokpal will not get corrupt) will not solve the problem. The big capital which is source of this corruption seems to be friendly with all these good intentioned people; in fact they are the one backing them.

Let’s look at certain examples. They want to cut down the electricity bills. Well we do not say it is not possible, it is well within the realm of possibilities.  But will it mean that big capitalists like Ambanis and Tatas getting replaced by others (perhaps Anil Agrawal/Jindal etc.)? Then what? New tricks to extract money from common people by these new operators?

Talking of removing contract labour system. Well it must be done and all aspects of this should be seen. It has corroded govt. establishment to small enterprises. In most of private sector, the workers are not even recorded anywhere. But most importantly, the policies that demand this ‘hire and fire’ regime, a regime that can bypass labour laws, what about them? Speak on policies and vision.

Otherwise you have to say we do not have a magic wand, which you had before possibility of forming government, while making promises and lost in the process perhaps …

  1. As our expectations were high with AAP Government in Delhi, it has lived up to that despite united effort by Congress, BJP and corporate controlled media to discredit! Long live revolution! Long live AAP!

    1. Actually the media is what build AAP. just coming to rule is no revolution. They are refusing to talk to people whoprotest. in fact, resorting to same oppressive measures and methods to break strike as any other regime. they have to be more polite.

      1. No AAP was not built by media, but once the latter realised the rise of AAP, they joined the band wagon for their business, namely TRP!
        Power is must to change the system and being inside the envelop of corrupt and criminal system, its not possible!
        Revolution not only for making government but the phenomenal rise of common man with AAP and their enthusiasm in present government as evident by most of the surveys which says more than 75% people approve of present governance is revolution!
        Strike is by provocateurs and not genuine workers as is vey clear by their behaviour. Despite written promises by the government, they are adamant to continue strike and cause inconvenience to public! What is the meaning of being polite! Democracy to democratic people and not provocateurs!
