Underworld dons, police, goons, netas, babus, criminal gangs - this nexus serves them at the cost of civilized society. We are often asked why do we elect such criminals? There is a very simple answer. Those who seek election are criminals. How will our vote make a difference? One or the other criminal in any case will be elected.
Mao Tse Tung said: Power stems from the barrel of the gun. Netas use the gun of the police to perpetuate their Raj. Some ideal minded people often repeat what Martin Luther King said: We shall overcome, we shall succeed. Succeed he did in getting killed. America is not the land of honey and milk. The condition of blacks is still miserable. They live in ghettoes. The crime rate amongst the blacks is the highest. Police is as much corrupt there as it is in India.
Sit up and take notice of recent happenings. Priyadarshini Matto, Jessica Lall, Rizvanul, Ruchika, Katara, Aarushi. Each case was entrusted to CBI which dutifully made a hash of it. From from the CBI officials drawn? From the State Police. We all know what State Police is. Wearing the badge of CBI does not make them different.
To bring about some semblance of rationality, the only option is to bring CBI under the control of the Supreme Court. Why the Government of day has coiled around the CBI in its grip and sitting over its head like a cobra?
But, no Government will let go CBI from its control. The instrument of harassment will be lost.
