In his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ address on the anniversary of the Quit India Movement in August, Prime Minister Narendra Modi (1) the nation to imbibe the same spirit and (2) corruption, communalism, casteism, poverty and dirt by 2022. The Quit Corruption or ‘Bhrashtachar Hatao’ slogan of the PM reminds us of Indira Gandhi’s ‘Garibi Hatao’ slogan that propelled her to power in 1971. Whether the PM’s exhortation to the countrymen is another election jumla (gimmick) or a sincere pledge remains to be seen. Take the case of (3) of a Lokpal. Despite enactment of the Lokpal Act in January 2014, the Modi government is dragging its feet on the appointment of a Lokpal who could play an important role in the war against corruption. The government has delayed a decision citing the (4) of a designated Leader of Opposition to select a Lokpal. Despite a Supreme Court bench in April 2017 directing the central government to go ahead and make the appointment, there is no action from the Modi government. This puts under question Modi’s sincerity in tackling corruption. Lest we forget, during his tenure as Gujarat CM, Modi steamrolled (5) to appoint a Lokayukta in that state.
Finally, then Gujarat Governor Kamla Beniwal (6) her discretionary powers and appointed retired Judge R A Mehta as Lokayukta. The appointment was challenged by the Modi government in the Supreme Court, which upheld the appointment. Judge Sahai, acting as third judge because of a split verdict, upheld the appointment and (7) the Modi government, noting that: the “pranks” played by the chief minister on the Lokayukta issue “demonstrates deconstruction of our democracy”.
Last year, the Union Finance Ministry decided that for gold purchases above Rs 50,000 one must quote the PAN number, and brought it under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). But a few weeks ago, this requirement was removed. Can political expediency to (8) the powerful gold merchants lobby on the eve of the Gujarat assembly polls go hand in hand with the claimed fight against black money?
The situation is no better in non-NDA ruled states. One may recall the prestige that Justice Santosh Hegde brought to the office of Lokayukta in Karnataka. His report on illegal mining led to the (9) and jailing of then chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, the Reddy brothers of the ‘Republic of Bellary’ and others. But sadly thereafter, the scandals (10) the Lokayuta office during his successor’s tenure followed by the state government stripping the Lokayukta of its police powers made it a toothless body. The fact is that no politician wants to be questioned about his or her corrupt activities.
