Economic Restructuring- Is that all?

Is boom in the economic prosperity of the nation the only factor that can overcome the concerns of millions? Try walking into a police station to get a complaint registered, approaching your local representative to get the road repaired, or asking for swift justice in the court and you would know what else we need. Surely, the general elections of 2014 are unlike the previous ones; however the political parties just have two prominent subject-matters to talk about- Secularism, and Economic Inefficiency.

Post the industrial reforms of 1991, liberalization and globalization delivered pace to the economy, which in turn paid incentives to private entities, employees, and the government. Sad to note, neither the educational facilities improve nor the poverty figure declined with the same pace. The consumer electronics, telecommunication, retail clothing, and automobile market are uninterruptedly fetching revenues, and we still are just focusing on economic dexterity. Though, the GDP growth rate needs to be worked upon sooner than later; judicial, legislative, and political reforms too are much-needed.

In June last year, the Central Information Commission declared to embrace political parties under the purview of the RTI. Without delay, the political groups united and the roll back was announced. Considerable to note, more than INR 35,000 crore are being expended in the polls of 2014, the figure that has made the general election most costly than ever. Untraceable cash contributions to the funds of the national parties account for more than 75 percent.

Fielding of candidates with severe charges of corruption by almost every political party remains unchanged. The government, with a view to extend a helping hand to law-violators, made legislative amendments to the ruling of the Apex Court that would have restricted politicians convicted of crimes to hold their offices. The Election Commission despite of noticing numerous violations of the model code of conduct has not even debarred a single candidate. Shouldn’t the state be delivered with much stringent laws that can restrict the involvement of law-breakers in politics? Plus, model code and constitution for every political party must be in place that can promise undeviating and strict conformity.

The mounting figure in respect to the number of pending suits, which is currently 32 million, is expected to rise as new courts are rarely coming into the picture. The judiciary, which was looked upon as the most honored wing, has also been charged with incidences of dishonest conduct. The Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, proposed by the government, encountered protest from the constituents of the judicial wing. The Bill aimed at assuring transparency in the functioning and independent investigation of charges related to judicial corruption.

First-time voters, who stand at 230 million in number, shall bring in change that can restrict politicians from luring public in view of caste and communal differences. Until when, would we select our representative on basis of religion and caste favoring attitude? More than economic reforms, the nation calls for deeper and sturdy restructuring of the political, judicial, administrative, and legislative pillars. Upcoming MPs must too consider this willingly.

    This is an excellent article. However, we need elected Police Chiefs, elected Judges, elected Public Prosecutors, elected Court Clerks, elected Auditors to meet the points raised in the article. This is the practice prevalent in America.

    Well written article, Unfortunate thing is that election commission and rest of the institutions of country are becoming toothless tigers. They are unable to take any strict actions against the powerful people including political leaders.
