Bhartiya No. 1 (Nationalist)     12 November 2010

black money of corrupt india

Sir thanks for this sensitive information and raising this issue,

It is rightly observed that the difference between developed/first world and third world is corruption.

Alos our late PM Rajiv Gandhi has observed that only 15p out of a rupee reaches to it's destination. and his son Sri Rahul Gandhi has said that only 5p reaches to poor.

Even fund allocated for the welfare of poors thru the various form of CSS (Center Sponsored Schemes) gets looted by the administration,

So, Is it meant for poors or for corrupt administration? Why not these be closed?

 

Plz see the following news item,

 

Rs 9,000 million paid as bribe by BPL people in 2009

 Poor to be part of fight against graft

DH News Service, Deepak K Upreti, November 3, New Delhi :
Transparency International (TI) aims to tie up with the poor, the main victims of corruption in government, and make MLAs and MPs more accountable for their poll promises.
The organisation estimates that in 2009, people living below the poverty line in the country paid Rs 9,000 million as bribe for 11 government services including the NREGA, electricity, water, housing and forestry. This was to avail themselves of basic services that they should have got free.

TI has kickstarted its experiment in Bihar to make politicians accountable once the new government assumes office in the state. “The elected MLAs would be made accountable in their constituency with the help of the TI that could appoint a genuine NGO in a region as a facilitator between TI and the poor,” Anupama Jha, Executive Director of TI, told Deccan Herald.

For this, TI will have a Development Pact (DP) that would include the poor as partners to improve the chances of sustainable change in their region.

The pact converts an election promise into “tangible and time-bound deliverables”, defined jointly with the people. It would help candidates in the fray to know what development people in their constituencies would like.

Poll contestants  (MPs, MLAs and panchayat members) are thus part of the pact and not rivals. According to TI, the DP is a public agreement between a committed administrative or political representative or a body and platforms for the poor.

Depending on the political and cultural context, it may be a written agreement or a publicly displayed text similar to a manifesto or a citizen’s charter.

The pact allows the poor to see that their vote has a direct value in getting their demands met. This works with organised groups that commit themselves “to not selling their votes”— as a block.

“It could also lead to a progressive change where a vote is sold not for money, but to get a school or a health centre,” maintains TI.

Jha said the DP arose because TI found that the people in their constituencies had no role in framing the election manifesto and the poor were not able to make “informed choices”.

The Second schedule of section 24 of the RTI Act exempts several organisations like intelligence agencies, paramilitary forces among others from disclosing information.

so,they are escaping their liability and we cannot know the exact amount and we cannot catch the corrupt politicians .

I think govt.should immediately amend the rti law and make a provision for that as section 24 creats a loopholes in which a politicians can easily escape from their liability.

Recently,the adarsh society case,CW games the govt should not take immediately steps?

In america the 4G phone system ,in india 2g G now 3G starts but one man also make corruption in 2G court direct the govt to take immediately steps but what happned ?customer services like mobile portability when it comes ?

Why?

The reason is simple this politician have sufficient time to transfer their money to swish bank account.

Thereafter the inquiry starts ,and govt invest money for inquiry suspend the politicians if needed but not take harsh steps .One on hand someone said indian shines in 2015 or 2020 but how ?All policy are on table or paper but no one can implement them just discuss it and everyone is enter in politics for getting maximum benefit for his interest there are very few who are serving for country.

https://www.lawyersclubindia.com/forum/Murder-of-RTI-activists-threat-to-transparency-24306.asp

The Cabinet Monday cleared a bill to protect whistleblowers ( Who is a whistleblower?)

My question is is this bill really protects Rti Activists ?
