BUREAUCRACY and ACCOUNTABILITY?
The all India cadres especially IAS and IPS cadres are protected in their service through special sections in the constitution so that they can function independently from politicians in governing through rule of law.They are supposed to be protectors and custodians of public property and enforcers of laws?It is generally felt that in the beginning their services are ethical.But no body from the general public noticed it or did not want to notice as they are too low to comprehend the powers of the kings called politicians and their weapons called bureaucrats?And the looting went on for 64 years.The big looters/politicians deposited their loot in SWISS banks in the name of their progeny.And many bureaucrats seem to have facilitated it?And then why will the bureaucrats keep quite,when the loot is happening under their very nose?So many got lured to misuse their powers,position and job security in looting whatever their guts permitted them?Besides they seem to be organized on regional,language and caste considerations informally to protect their interests besides using their associations like IAS officers associations-at local and national level?
Many of them seem to have colluded with most of the criminal politicians?They enjoyed money,power,perks,position as get going went on?Once public is asking them to account,hell is breaking out for politicians and bureaucrats?Bureaucrats should have known their merit,qualifications and job security before involving in anti-social criminal activities while sitting in powerful government chairs?They are supposed to be public watch dogs?
Now general public is restless calling for accountability?Once babus are arrested and made to account,they are crying and demanding that they are only following government orders and can not be made scape goats?They have mobilized their union called IAS officers association to coerce the government to protect their interests generally and to protect the interests of those involved at public cost?
If this is so,what is happening to low level officers?If these babus do not like certain up-right government officers/servants from other cadres,they manufacture enquiries,harass them and suppress them?These un-organised officers either have to leave service or submit to their system?
There is limit to the arrogance of these babus?Besides general public in villages,if they can not pay cess,their properties are auctioned by these very officers or the juniors under them?There seem to be protection to the most powerful people in the country?There is no protection to the weakest in the nation and we are taught—NIRBAL KA BAL RAM HAI ? Should we follow this for ever sirs?
Can the governments at centre and states address these and other related issues and bring in proper governance at institutional level(among them) and at officer level and mitigate the despair and pain of the common man called AAM AADMI by them? Or should we keep on praying god for another 1000 years to help us ? A humble submission sirs?
