pressure politics vs pressure governance
Its a hot fuzz now, since the election heat waving on the air and adding a bit cherry to it, popular social activist Anna Hazare has ignited his strike for LokPal, a powerful, apolitical governing body to prevent corruption. There are immense of support and solidarity for his strike, coming from every niche of the society. This is a real good thing for Indian society and politics. Corruption is the deepest rooted cancer in Indian politics.
We have seen so many time, its came into the debates, discussions, so many people tried to stop it, even they proposed new parties, new ideologies ,claiming to prevent corruption, a new political party which is free from corruption, but sadly, they all grown up into politics with corruption.
So its been clearway from past experiences that, not a single party can succeed without corruption, because power always mixed with corruption.
So what is the solution for this? Each time, we ask this each other, then some of us jump for a new party, but the same old sad endings.
We have to propose a new solution, a new scheme. The contemporary schema we are seeing in the political area is the pressure politics. Organized communities and minority communities,cast-oriented communities, etc etc , all of them are using pressure politics. They are pressuring to these political parties according with their demands, which are specifically and precisely form these community interests. Unfortunately, no one cares about the common-man issue, the regular social issues. May be the society is not organized or federalized, thats the reason??
I guess, we can learn some thing from this Anna Hazare strike, we can evolve into some thing new and effective. No party can be clean from corruption. We need a stern,firm apolitical watch dog system for corruption. One of the main reason for this hike of corruption is the lack of precise sentences. Every one think that they can bend the law and violate rules by money, its so far as true also.
Here comes the importance of bills like LokPal, some thing, some legal system, which is powerful, yet apolitical, free from all kind of outside-pressure. This kind of a system or a board or a governing body, whatever we call, it can restrict the rate of corruption. People may not jump into corruption if there is a powerful watch dog. If they know, they will get caught, they will get serious punishments, these rate will down fall so fast.
So its time for pressure-governance. We need more and more influence into the governing system from the public side. We have a very powerful tool already, ie. information law, now we need some more spearhead to our arsenal. LokPal could be the best of them.
So support for this movement, Make this happen, take part more into the governance,contribute,influence into governance, not politics. Let the political parties do their work, but let them know , they are being watched. Thats the only solution for this, the better approach to make things clean and effective..
