Salman Khurshid slams SC and EC to reach the verdict against ministers in one year
The Supreme Court of India has announced judges must reach verdicts within one year in cases against law-makers those who are accused. On one hand, SC wants to accelerate trials in the courts, so that accused politician either be disqualified or provided a clean chit. On the other, Congress placed its accused ministers in safe heavens by making them Governors of states.
On this, Salman Khurshid said to a news channel that, “Judges sit and they say this is not to happen and of course go to the extent of threatening contempt proceedings against officials. Two judges can say anything about parliamentarians that they will be allowed to contest or not, what kind of affidavit they have to file, what they can do and so on.”
The verdict is an attempt to make politics transparent by ensuring that politicians charged with crimes are not re-elected because their trials are moving slowly.
But, political parties have been playing a clever role in safegaurding its big political maetros. Not making them to confront the public as they have corruption charges.
Applauding its minister who say “Main hamesha Gandhi-Nehru parivar ka vafadar raha. Meri niyukti ye saabit hai ki mijhi meri vafadari ka inaam mila, sirf Sonia Gandhi ke aashirwad se main Uttarakhand ka Governor ban saka.” The Uttarakhand Governor designates statement saying he was selected for undying loyalty to the Nehru-Gandhi family.”
Recently, a scam broke out of coal blocks allocation in which names of the corporates and ministers came into limelight. In past recent times even after a clear involvement of bureaucrats and politicians, a recent FIR filed by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the case stated not even a single name of bureaucrats and politicians. Ashwani Kumar was safely deputed on the post which was not even known.
“Supreme Court should also tighten CBI when country’s premium investigation-agency is notorious for being misused by political rulers for regularly changing stand on probe against politicians according to requirements of political rulers,” said Madhu Agrawal, Guinness Record Holder for letters in Newspapers. Even institution like Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has shown its helplessness on having any control on investigations being done by CBI.
Congress has been safeguarding the Ministers by different transit tricks. System should be so refined that change of stand by CBI against politicians may have to be compulsorily approved by CVC under monitoring of Supreme Court either directly or through some committee answerable to Supreme Court. But, some strong steps ought to be taken against as Congress has posted all the accused law-makers as Governors.
VR Krishna Iyear
The Kerala Governor apparently a fine administrator with no dark record has resigned to become a Congress candidate hopefully to become a minister. This if true is morally shocking and legally stultifying the moral principle behind law and justice. The fact remains that Sheila Dikshit was an excellent administrator, but was democratically defeated from Delhi and cannot evade elections and people’s voices and votes and resort a new strategy to circumvent the power of criminal justice by adopting the device method of becoming a Governor. This is a disgrace to the criminal law and the noble Governor’s office which deserves to be condemned as unscrupulous misuse of presidential power and constitutional morality. There are currently five FIRs against her. Why should she not face the trial? It is delinquency to rob the law of its power to try the guilty by recourse to making an accuse person a Governor of a state. Don’t damn the law by defining the glory of governorship. It is gross contempt of the legal system of the constitutional moral wonder and vulgarizing the spiritual value of the rule of law when the law jettisons its soul. The soul of the law suffers moral asphyxiation. That is the end of the sublime element of jurisprudence. The resignation of the Kerala Governor at night and the stealing into the Kerala Raj Bhavan of an individual who has been censured by the people of India’s capital city is an insult to democracy and disgraced to the Suprema Lex. When the Raj Bhavan becomes the palace of a disowned personality the Government itself loses its celestial sacredness. Apart from this, above the Kerala Governor who has resigned for reasons of electoral mystery commands my personal respects. The incoming Governor disgraced by defeat in Delhi is reportedly a splendid ruler and is eligible for my respect. The whole thing looks like a political circus depriving the Constitution of its conscience. Whoever wins whatever office, Indian cultural greatness is the victim of a moral suicide. Power politics and corruption have prevailed over justice and divinity.
All are aware on second thoughts that what is happening is against country’s dignity. The two personalities involved negative admiration. But for reasons not propose to discuss because they have deviated what is a measure of moral deviance. Countrymen should bow before them both.
No charge-sheet against Congress Corruption
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been probing coal blocks allocation case for last 18 month. In the recent FIR, CBI had put charges under Prevention of Corruption Act, saying the said company officials had entered into a conspiracy with “unknown officials of the Ministry of Coal” to bag coal blocks from the government. It doesn't mention role of any government official or members of screening committee, who took decisions on coal block allocation. The Precious coal blocks were allotted arbitrarily to beneficiaries close to the government. According to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), an estimated loss of Rs.1.86 lakh crores was caused to the national exchequer in the scam. But, no name of a single politician is there.
No public servant has been named as accused in the first coal-scam chargesheet filed by CBI and no corruption charge has been pressed as well. Cheating and criminal conspiracy under Indian Penal Code, are Charged on Hyderabad-based private company Navabharat Power Pvt Ltd and its directors, P Trivikrama Prasad and Y Harish Chandra Prasad. The chargesheet steers clear of whether the government policy of allocating coal blocks through a screening committee process was proper instead of an auction.
CBI Director, Shri Ranjit Sinha has made it clear that the probe agency will not dwell on the merits of the government policy for coal block allocations while filing charges in a series of cases in the coming days. The agency has not even found evidence of corruption yet in the first charge-sheet. The source said CBI has taken a cue from the PM's suggestion and may not target government servants if there is no proof that they indulged in corruption but only had a lapse in judgment.
