Toothless Tiger

9 May

The Lok Ayuktha has been given new (milk) teeth. He has extensive powers to deal with corruption BUT it will probably EXCLUDE our political masters. So he will have to focus on Sub-Registrars, Clerks etc.

What struck me was the headline in Deccan Herald yesterday “Lok Ayuktha – Reprieve for Legislators” (sic).

Its like, everyone knows they are corrupt, but they can pass laws to exempt themselves.

    That is the irony be it in govt or elsewhere generally prople are seeing what is the effect of this on you. we had one boss long back who will see in any file which gets into problem first thing he will see whether he has signed that if he has he will be defensive is not then he will make it a big issue and Q all those people left right and centre.
    so yard sticks are different one for law makers and other for ordinary citizens

    Milk tooth – Extremly appropriate observation.

    Instead they can scrap lokayuktha and pubilsh index of corruption.
