Re: [IAC#RG] Whither "rule of law" in AAP

Dear Girender ji

Thank you for your kind words.

Your application and ID documents in response to a call for volunteers
in 2012 is very much on our records and in our mind. As and when the
War on Corruption starts you will be informed how you are to do your
duty, and we are sure you will do it very well too.

[IAC#RG] Whither "rule of law" in AAP

Dear IAC-ians

Although IAC and AAP leadership had variously agreed in various ways
not to interfere in each others affairs, the recent unsavory media
clashes in AAP are tarnishing IAC's reputation causing us to update
our subscribers.

Accordingly, here are our working thoughts on AAP's affairs and
considering that we recently met so many former IAC volunteers from
all over India who had come to attend AAP's National Council meeting
held at a posh farmhouse motel of one of their distinctly 'not aam
aadmi' MLAs.

Unlike PB and YY, our own bonafides 'qua' AAP are unimpeachable as we had
a) publicly declared our outrage at Kiran Bedi's CMship and made sure
she was defeated,
b) We had publicly declared before the voting our reasons "Why BJP
must be defeated tomorrow."

PROS

1)  It is clear that at the present time there is pretty much nobody
except Arvind as the "face" of the party.

2) That Arvind has shown remarkable good sense in finally expelling
certain people who do not conform to the party's Constitutional
requirements of upholding the unity and sovereignty of India. We would
not have waited so long or put up with such indiscipline.

3) That Arvind's public statement to implement RTI in the party, if

SORROWING LIES OUR GOA


By Aires Rodrigues


Goa once the Paradise of the East is now a lawless State with the law of the jungle thriving for those politically well connected. The blatant ongoing land filling and hill cutting with political patronage is only adding to Goa’s vows. These are well planned crimes against nature and should be dealt with firmly. The guilty should not be spared. The law has to be deterrent and punitive. The violators must be compelled to restore the damaged fields and hills to its original contour.  


Is it not an irony that if you are found with beef in Maharashtra you cool your heels in jail for five long years but you can ruthlessly cut the hills in Goa besides merrily filling the fields and one year’s imprisonment is the maximum punishment that the law currently provides for such gross ecological damage done?


This only reminds us of the phrase “the law is an ass”  popularized by Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist.

The Supreme Court’s recent judgment for scrapping of Section 66 A of the Information Technology Act for being “unconstitutional in entirety” is indeed a joyous moment for the democracy and set ethos for right or freedom to express and opine. Banglar Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha welcomes this historic verdict from the apex court.

However, for the human rights and civil liberty organizations of this country have suspicion and qualms about the real implementation of the judgment; as the country has many judicial protections for marginalized, victims of state apathies and atrocities by the active arms of the state machinery; grossly not implemented and followed; though according to the Article 141 of Indian Constitution; the verdicts of apex court is rule of the land. The police of this country abundantly violate the guidelines and directives given by the apex court over the issues of arrest, detention, physical torture, maltreatments and so on and enjoying fullest impunity; (D K Basu – on arrest, Premshankar Shukla – on handcuffing, Sheela Barse – prisoners’ rights, PUCL Rajasthan – right to food; the list is unending) not even the judicial institutions questioning blatant and unbridled flouting of legalities by the police / administration and other components of criminal justice administration.


It is in this context that the current scrapping of Section 66 A is welcome, in principle, but will not change much on the ground. It would be cosmetic at best; the real change will take place when the democratic institutions can confirm the citizenry that the legalities will be followed and obeyed by the criminal justice administration in letter and spirit.

Re: [IAC#RG] FREE WIFI in Delhi - Stakeholder Consultations

Dear Girender Singhji

I really thank you for posing such a question to me directly.

As my attached PDF explained, it was only the AAP which made such kind
of wild promises like FREE Wifi, FREE Water etc, so citizens obviously
voted for them in large numbers. Now we are finding what they actually
meant by FREE.

Since AAP knew very well what I was going to write, AAP even changed
the scheduled dates of the hearings and brought in some fake body
called "Delhi Dialogue Commission" because no honest babu will agree
with such nonsense as proposed by them.

As I firmly believe that what they did is a CORRUPT practice, as IAC
Convenor I am obliged to say so publicly. If BJP does so or Congress
does it, I shall be, and am, equally unsparing.

I really look forward to taking this kind of deceit up with Ms Ilina
Sen, w/o the eminent grassroots leader Dr. Binayak Sen, who was AAP's
internal "jokepal" when I last enquired. If necessary I will even pay
Rs. 10 to join AAP and get the info under RTI from them. There is no
shortage of AAP persons who will gladly cut a Rs.10 party receipt for
me.

[IAC#RG] Corruption in MHADA. Mumbai Repairs and reconstruction Board.

In Mumbai cessed  buildings are repaired by repairs board through Architect and contractor.

Architect Contractor and deputy engineer of repairs  board are a team.

they give an estimate of less than 10 lacs, so that they don't have to go through e Tender process.

Thus that team gets the contract. Then Architect and contractor tell tenants that all repairs cannot be

done in that amount. if you contribute some amount i.e. 40% of additional estimate (say 5 Lacs.) they can get

60%  from M L A fund. This is all  unofficial. only cash payment, no receipt etc. and if contractor does not

do all repairs we cannot do anything.

CAN ANYONE STOP THIS CORRUPTION ?

guidance IS necessary.

[IAC#RG] Railway reservations


The discussion about Tatkal ticket reservation is appreciable one. My question is why Tatkal? Why cant the government impose certain restrictions on agents in booking railway tickets? It's very simple. ID card numbers - voter ID, pan card , adhaar and passport as ID - should be made compulsory in booking tickets to eliminate middlemen.
Next issue is, food served in the railway compartments are horrible. The tea and coffee are a shame. Why cant the government impose quality assurance that is imposed on other restaurants and food outlets?

1. Volunteer's body  must have a representational  presence in decision making bodies of AAP.
2. If gradual and not so slow slide into 'regular' politics has to be restrained and appeal of new politcs to the electorate maintained then strict scrutiny mechanism must be embodied into regular functioning of the party. Internal Lokpal is the place of final resort.
3. Constituency wise , area wise vigilance committee should be set up.These aren't units for monitoring work done or not done. But the ones focused on violations of core principles which the party represents . 
4. Guided politicisation or sensitisation classes should be a mandatory for the mass of workers and volunteers who joined AAP but have little understanding of foundational concepts behind new politics. 
Praxis and not articulation of praxis will insure you against corrosive effects of power play and pragmatic political choices.

We have already started working on the last point. Modules for education or Sunday classes for workers are being worked out.
I would request Prof Anand Kumar to engage pro actively on this.

[IAC#RG] CHIEF ELECTION COMMISSIONER ABDICATES HIS REPONSIBILITY

To      
India Against Corruption
                                                               CHIEF  ELECTION  COMMISSIONER  ABDICATES HIS REPONSIBILITY

In a media interview , that was published on  21st March,2015, Chief Election Commissioner Mr. H.S.Brahma  has said that law  is not a panacea for poll ills.  Confessing that money power plays role in elections  and business and money are involved in the  election process, he  has  said  that law is not going to solve any problem and people should be told that in their own interest , they must vote for the right person.

Obviously, by the above confession, Chief Election Commissioner  expresses his inability to ensure fair poll, which  make  one wonder  as to what is the Chief Election Commissioner for ?

The problem today is not due to lack of laws but inability and unwillingness of Election Commission to enforce the law in letter and spirit. Election Commission rarely punishes the politicians who violate the model code of conduct and often ends up in issuing warnings which no politician seems to take seriously. Election Commission today is viewed as a barking dog that seldom bite.
Even when Election Commission seizes the money that may be meant for bribing during the polls, it does not follow up the matter and punish the concerned political party but simply leave the matter to the Income tax authorities. What has the Election Commission done about  the allegation that AAP received Rs. 2 crores , during the recent Delhi polls from fictitious source. Election Commission's deafening silence in the matter indicates it's attitude to it's responsibility.

Bribing of voters has become the order of the day in several states including Tamil Nadu. Several such instances have been brought to the notice of Election Commission during the elections  but  it  has often ignored them  fearing the politicians. This is so, since Election Commissioners owe their positions to the politicians.

To cut the long story short, one instance is enough  to show the weak approach of the Election Commission. A  notorious by election in Tamil took place in Tirumangalam a few years back, when money was distributed openly to the voters. The then Chief Election Commissioner himself admitted this disgusting scenario but he did not move ahead to countermand the poll. Obviously, he lacked the courage of conviction , inspite of the fact that the Election Commission is a constitutional body  with great responsibility.

 Now, in Tamil Nadu politicians use the term “Tirumangalam formula” ,as  one sure method for winning election.

The statement of Chief Election Commissioner that law is inadequate and he is helpless deserves strong criticism and condemnation. Obviously, we need Election Commissioners with greater sense of determination and commitment to the national cause of conducting free and fair elections at any cost.
