today i read the new police act which gave functional autonomy. i am telling you now how ridiculous that act is.
the objective of functional autonomy is separation police from state govt. the new police act is just an eye wash.
the state govt. is the real cause of decay of police activity. the obvious remedy was autonomy i.e separation of police and state govt. but the cunning politicians did not do that. rather in new police act they are establishing some institutions to look after police viz: state security council, police establishment council, police complaint council etc. all these institutions will be established by the state govt which is real cause of decay. so under new system there are some intermedieries between state govt. and police: these institutions.
so what new change is there? the same state govt and police are there. only some new middlemen has come in between. the result; same lower class police activities with more complication in procedure.
what a ridiculous thing soli sorabjee & co. can do!!!!
now what should happen? the cause of problem state govt. should be separated from police. police should be brought under control of judiciary. police should impliment court's order and will not care the threatning of political leaders.
the old system:
state govt. + police = corruption
the new ridiculous police act ( continuing the old system)
state govt.+ institutions+ police= more corruption + complication
the new system:
judiciary+ police= no corruption
so you see how tricky and cunning our politicians could be.
