Equallycitizens want their day-to-day grievances related to the government addressed in an effectivetime-bound manner Recent events have undoubtedly put these two issues at the centre of public debateand forced the political class to pay attention Nowhoweveris the time for reasoned debate A rational solution needs to be evolved to address these challenges As the Parliament debates the Lokpal billwe very strongly believe that two principles must inform all discussions on the matter Firsttoo much power and responsibility must not be concentrated in any one institution power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely The corruption we see today is a result of unaccountable and unchecked power Thereforethe institution set up to tackle corruption must itself have a proper system of checks and balancesto ensure that it is accountable to the people of the country Rather than setting up a single super-institution which deals with all problems corruption at high levelscorruption in the middle- and lower-level bureaucracyjudicial corruption and public grievances multiple institutionsadequately empoweredmust be set up to look into each of these issues Secondexisting institutions and laws must be strengthened to enable them to tackle corruption effectivelyand to protect those who blow the whistle on corrupt practices If democratic institutions falter or weakenthere is no alternative to repairing and strengthening them Failure to address the problems in existing structures will result in transferring the same problems into any new institution that may be set up In our viewan Anti-Corruption Lokpalequipped and empowered to deal with big-ticket corruption at the state and the central levelcovering all elected representatives (including the prime ministerbut with certain safeguards)senior bureaucrats and all co-accused is critically required This body would investigate and prosecute everyone involved in large scams like the 2GCWGTaj Corridor and Adarsh affairs that rocked the nation in recent times For mid-level and lower bureaucracythe existing institution of the Central Vigilance Commission must be empowered to effectively deal with all cases of corruption This would entail removing bottlenecks like the single directive and the lack of adequate resources which have so far impeded its effective functioning Parallel state vigilance commissions at the state level would also have to be set up The judiciary must be made accountable to an independentautonomous institution The Constitution provides for the independence of the judiciary What is neededin our opinionis an independent National Judicial Commission to look into all cases of corruption and misconduct related to the judiciary at all levels from the lower judiciary to judges of the Supreme Court The Judicial Accountability and Standards Billcurrently with the parliamentary standing committeeneeds to be substantially amended and strengthened to ensure its effectiveness Whistleblowers must be offered protection under all these institutions through an effective Whistleblowers Protection bill This can be achieved by suitably amending and strengthening the public interest disclosure bill currently before Parliament One issue that impacts every citizen of this country is the lack of an effective mechanism to deal with everyday grievances non-receipt of pensionspoor delivery of rationsbroken roadsnon-availability of adequate waterpoor sanitation and drainage etc Effective grievance redress requires a decentralised systemequipped to deal with grievances in a time-bound manner There is an urgent need to draw on successful grievance redress mechanisms where they exist (like in NREGA) and evolve an appropriate legislation to set up an independent institution empowered to effectively redress public grievances India is a huge countryand the problems we seek to address are complex No single quick-fix legislationno single all-powerful institution is likely to deliver us the cleanvibrantparticipatory democracy to which we aspire A well-thought outconsidered and informed solutionin line with the basic structure of our Constitutionwill have to be evolved through a process of public consultation and debate Parliament too cannot take any shortcuts It has to provide a genuine platform for discussion in line with its constitutional role It has to invite comments from across the country before passing the legislation India Against Corruptions lack of faith and belief in the parliamentary process may be an expression of angst against its ineffectiveness But to bypass it would be self-defeating for the people of India Our experience with the Right to Information and NREGA legislations shows that the standing committee can be an extremely useful platformwhere the legislations can be discusseddebated and strengthened The RTI bill which was introduced in Parliament was an extremely watered-down and weak version of what civil society activists had drafted and proposed Howevergroups from all over the countryincluding the NCPRIpetitioned the parliamentary standing committeeand debated the legislation clause by clause EventuallyParliament took on board most of the suggestions of the standing committee and finally made 153 amendments to the billpassing one of the most progressive right to information access legislations across the world The movement which finally led to the passage of the RTI Actprovides an insightful example of how civil society can agitate and work towards a strong pro-people legislation without compromising or demeaning parliamentarydemocratic processes?
