A decisive battle against corruption has begun. The fight is not against any political party. The fight is against corruption.
The government’s Lokpal Bill covers about 0.5% of public servants, yet it brings under its ambit virtually every citizen’s group and organization, registered or unregistered, meant to serve the social sector. This raises a pertinent question – whom is the Lokpal really targeted at?
Under this bill, a public servant accused of corruption is allowed to turn around and file a lawsuit against the complainant accusing him of filing a frivolous complaint. The government will provide a free advocate to the accused to help prove the citizen was wrong, while the citizen has to fend for himself. If the complain proves to be frivolous, the minimum sentence for the citizen is 2 years. But if the corruption charges are proved, the minimum sentence for the public servant is just 6 months!
Will then any citizen dare raise a voice against corruption? Will you?
Do you feel the government bill is dangerous?
Will you also oppose it?
