Sovereignty and Integrity of India in Peril

Respected Sirs,

1.                At the outset, I appeal to your magnanimity to kindly pardon me for impropriety, if any, in addressing you collectively like this. Collectively, you are the vision providers, navigators and powers who can save our Democracy from collapsing.  At a time when public confidence in the Government institutions is waning fast, you are the Institutions and authorities that still command people’s confidence and hope.  

2.                I am bringing before you the issues and proposals that have been debated and deliberated for months by mature, experienced and highly responsible men and women of our society. Therefore, very humbly and most hopefully, I would request you to please mull over these submissions seriously and, more importantly, initiate pragmatic actions to purge and provide a fair, transparent, honest, efficient, and people friendly Democratic system that has been devoured by corruption and divisive forces of self-serving politics. Sovereignty and Integrity of India have never been in a more perilous state.

3.                Fully conscious of the pressure on your precious time, I shall be as concise as possible in conveying to you what we consider ‘aspirations of a distraught Nation’.

The External Threat Scenario

4.                India is the only country in the world that has two of her major neighbours, both nuclear powers, with a history of wars and continuing animosities and suspicions – frequent peace and friendship initiatives notwithstanding. China, aspiring for global leadership, is befriending India’s closer neighbours like Srilanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar and even Nepal while their faith in India is dwindling. In her quest to encircle India, China is steadily expanding her influence in the Indian Ocean and Asia Pacific. In the west, the scene is even more worrisome. Attacks by the al Qaeda-Taliban terrorists on Pakistan’s high security installations have become more audacious and frequent, the latest being on Kamra air base, believed to be storing nuclear warheads. These attacks have laid bare the vulnerability of a beleaguered Pakistan which is fighting a losing war on many fronts besides its ongoing asymmetric war against terror. Tussle between the Judiciary and the Executive, resurging Islamist movements, rampant corruption and a failing economy with an S&P debt rating lowered to ‘CCC plus’ which is among the world’s lowest – all add up to make Pakistan more shaky and unstable. For India, a weak, strife-torn, unstable Pakistan is more dangerous than a strong, prosperous and stable Pakistan for obvious reasons. The vital question, however, is how prepared we are to play a proactive role in either eventuality.      

The Domestic Scenario

5.                Rise of Sectarian/Divisive Politics: Divisive politics is flourishing with utter disregard to the constitutional safeguards as gangs like Shiv Sena and MNS brazenly go on the rampage every now and then driving away non-Marathas from Mumbai. Raj Thackray has the audacity to issue Fatwas to ban Hindi TV and banish all Biharis from Mumbai. In Mumbai again, a group of demonstrators raise Pakistani flag, destroy ‘Amar Jawan Jyoti’ and set vehicles and public property afire even as the police watched mutely. What is even more shocking is that the Government lumps it all so meekly and helplessly! At the national level, the politics of caste-community based quota, subsidy, and reservation has destroyed harmony and created rival groups within the society, while the poor - the so-called ‘beneficiaries’- still languish in perpetual poverty that spreads beyond caste boundaries. Rather than empowering the impoverished, the quota regime has only promoted ‘dependence’ of the needy. Hordes of foreign nationals continue to infiltrate illegally into India from Bangladesh and neither the State Government of Assam nor the Centre seems to know how to tackle the problem which recently erupted in violence taking toll of several lives and rendering thousands of people homeless. As if that was not enough, Indian citizens from NE states were hounded and targeted in metro cities as if they were aliens in their own country.  The very idea of India as a Nation is under threat!

6.                Probity in Public Life Abandoned: Falling standard of probity among politicians is the bane of Indian Democracy today. Assets of MPs and MLAs quickly multiply into hefty fortunes, in many cases recording a staggering 100 to 1000 per cent growth even when there is no visible source of honest income. The CAG revelations in 2 G, CWG and Coal block allocations have exposed how forthcoming our politicians and bureaucrats are in compromising their integrity and character for quick personal gains. Some have surpassed limits and fallen to the bottom of moral depravity and, shockingly, even the law has been slower and softer on the likes of ND Tiwari, Gopal Kanda, Mahipal Maderna, Abhishek Singhvi and so on. MPs’ affidavits perused by the National Election Watch (NEW) revealed that more than 162 Lok Sabha MPs including some ministers are facing criminal cases in courts of law. Of these, 76 are involved in serious crimes like murder, rape, dacoity, cheating, kidnapping and so on.  Sadly, the number of tainted MPs has been steadily rising – there were 128 in the 14th Lok Sabha while now they are 162 in the 15th Lok Sabha – despite public outcry for Lokpal and repeated recommendations from India’s constitutional authorities at the highest level. Here is the evidence of stubborn inaction:

(a)              The Election Commission of India recommended as far back as 1998 that ‘candidates with pending criminal cases should be debarred from contesting elections.’ The Commission had to reiterate it in 2004 but without any effect.  

(b)              The Law Commission of India similarly proposed in 1999 an amendment/insertion of Section 8B of Representation of People Act, 1951 that would make candidates facing charges by a court of law ineligible to contest elections.   Yet, no effect!    

(c)               The National Commission to Review the Working of the Constitution (NCRWC) also emphasised in their Report submitted in 2001 that “Any person convicted for any heinous crime like murder, rape, smuggling, dacoity etc should be permanently debarred from contesting for any political office”. Going a step further, the Commission also proposed that Political Parties giving ticket to such candidates should be ‘derecognised forthwith.’ No effect, yet again!

(d)              The Second Administrative Reforms Commission in its final Report submitted in 2008 lent support to the Law Commission proposal for appropriate legislation to debar candidates with criminal background from entering legislatures.  To no avail whatsoever!

7.                Corrupt, Callous Governance: In its Corruption Perception Index of nations for the year 2011, Transparency International pegs India at level 95 recording a drop 11 notches below her previous year’s position among 178 countries of the world, a score that is far worse than countries like Morocco, Grenada, Zambia, Srilanka and many others in the category. Enviably viewed as one of  the world’s fastest growing Economies (BRIC), India’s growth story is annoyingly diminishing having already slid from 10.6 in 2010 to 7.2 in 2011 and may ‘collapse to 5 percent’ this year as cautiously admitted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself at the Planning Commission meeting on 15 September 2012. The logjam in which the Government is struck is so strange that the UPA partners, who should be supporting the Government, are criticising its policies and moves more bitterly than Opposition to extract more than their pound of flesh. At the core of all these negatives lies the official corruption which is tearing through the skies. Widely criticised domestically as well as globally for manipulating poverty statistics, our Planning Commission put 32 percent of India’s population below poverty line (BPL) whereas the World Bank puts it at 42 percent. Evidently, subsidies, reservations and populistic projects like MNREGA and other poverty alleviation schemes have ended up enriching only the corrupt officials, local politicians and touts at the cost of targeted beneficiaries. Misappropriating public money and perpetuating poverty in such a regime has become a lucrative business of the politico-bureaucratic nexus. Unconcerned about the rising public ire against official corruption, Sushil Kumar Shinde, the Home Minister of world’s largest Democracy disgraced it when in reply to a query from the press on 15 September 2012 in Pune he said, “earlier the Bofors was a talking point. People forgot about it. Now it is coal. This too will be forgotten." A live example of how corruption destroys moral fibre of the nation!

8.                Systemic Paralysis: Bureaucrats are on a ‘pens down’ mode reportedly because they hesitate to take decisions for fear of getting caught as if honest working were so risky and no longer possible in government departments! Accountability has disappeared from the system. The state of crucial public utility services like government hospitals is horrific. Government schools are no better than cattle sheds. People fear police more than they fear criminals. Self respecting citizens no longer risk going to police stations to seek help because they find it easier to settle scores directly with the criminals than be exploited and insulted by police with no positive result in sight. No complaints against their rogue behaviour scares any government employee for, thanks to the shared booty of their ‘collections’, the boss would do no more than placate the complainant and hush up the matter to the delight of his delinquent subordinate. What has happened to the system that demanded efficiency, punctuality and fairness in official performance? The idea of Lokpal dates back to 1969 when the bill was first passed in the Lok Sabha.  Since then no other bill has been debated as much in and out of the Parliament. Teeming multitudes of humanity at Delhi’s Ramlila grounds for once forced the Parliament to adopt a ‘Sense of the House’ resolution favouring adoption of the Lokpal.  The agitation was called off, and so was the Lokpal bill.    

9.                The Coalition Sophistry: Coalition governments have made a mockery of Democracy. Political parties that contest elections by rousing public passions against each other as avowed enemies trading abuses and allegations, suddenly have no compunction in forming unholy alliances with those very rivals soon after elections. This is grossly unethical, against the will of the electorate and, therefore, against the spirit of the constitution too. This is like gangs coming together to form a ‘Mafia Group’ rather than a ‘Government’ which they would manoeuvre to serve their narrow interests rather than peoples’. It must, therefore, be incumbent upon parties to first form an alliance and decide on a common Manifesto on which they intend to contest elections as partners so that the voter knows what kind of a government he is electing. Also, it is no secret that MPs were sold and purchased to save fledgling coalition governments twice on the floor of the Lok Sabha – the Narsimha Rao Government in 1993 and the Manmohan Singh Government in 2004. In the existing constitutional dispensation, it is possible for an otherwise insignificant group of legislators or even an individual to conspire with one of the rival groups in an evenly divided House and topple or alter a Coalition Government to arrogate unusual power and authority to themselves – a scenario that would be grossly against the mandate of the electorate, yet constitutionally permissible. We know how an independent MLA, Madhu Koda, now in jail for amassing an illegal wealth of Rs. 4000 crore, became Chief Minister of Jharkhand in 2006. In the present Coalition, the Prime Minister has himself confessed that he is working under ‘coalition compulsions’, implying that the Government does yield to blackmail and coercion from partners for its survival. This compulsive stranglehold of coalition partners has been the primary factor in paralysing the Government. By implication, such governments last as long as they serve vested interests of partners; public service is incidental.   Having messed up almost an entire monsoon session of the Parliament without transacting useful business, the Government is now frantically huddling to take ‘bold decisions’ on FDI, disinvestment and other controversial issues on the sly even many UPA partners are left fuming.  

10.             Official Neglect hits Military Morale:  It is now indisputably known that the military personnel and Ex-servicemen were given a raw deal by the 6th Central Pay Commission, not to mention of the woes given by earlier pay panels. A large number of petitions and appeals filed by aggrieved ex-servicemen against the Government decisions stand disposed by the Armed Forces Tribunal, High Courts and the honourable Supreme Court in favour of the petitioners asking the Government to grant remedies in each case. Yet, the bureaucratic red tape has not permitted justice to reach the aggrieved parties including serving soldiers. The result is that the mounting resentment has taken a toll on the military morale which has recently manifested in some very disturbing happenings in some military units deployed in sensitive operational areas. Spilling beyond breach of discipline, these incidents became mutinous confrontations defying chain of command. It is a different matter though that the top military brass shall go to any extent to allay doubts about military’s morale and battle worthiness because in military ethos it is disgraceful and un-soldierly to be demoralised. Even a dying soldier would boast of his ‘high morale’. India’s military might is the last resort to deal with the most complex and dangerous threats – internal or external – when all else might have failed. There is no alternative to maintaining the Armed Forces fully motivated, satisfied, well equipped and well cared for so that they deliver desired results. Unfortunately, petty considerations like inter-service parity, inferiority or superiority and one-upmanship are over-riding national interests and, in their effort to negate the uniqueness of military’s role and structure, the bureaucrats have traditionally viewed military as their rival in service status. This hostile mindset has always pulled down the soldiery in India by making the Government give them less than they deserve. Throughout the world, military enjoys distinct privileges, status and prestige which are officially bestowed upon the soldiers in the form of badges of rank, insignia, uniform, ‘standards’ and banners – all that distinguishes them from the rest. It is in everybody’s interest to make soldiers proud of their profession and beloved of the people they die for. There is an urgent need to arrest the fall of military morale and restore their dignity and motivation before it is too late.


11.             There are a host of reforms awaiting enactment of appropriate laws like Lokpal Bill, Whistle Blowers Bill, Electoral and Political Reforms, Ban on entry of charge-sheeted individuals into the Legislature or public offices, Confiscation of illegally acquired assets of politicians and government officials, Judicial Reforms and Judges Accountability Bill et al are unlikely to see the light of the day under the existing system.

12.             Peaceful agitations, recommendations of Commissions and statutory bodies, and even directions/strictures and observations frequently passed by the Judiciary have failed to improve the situation. The Law Minister derisively scoffed at the peaceful mass agitation saying, “Ramlila happens every year; what’s the worry?” Equally scornfully, the Home Minister also echoed the Government attitude when he said, "earlier the Bofors was a talking point. People forgot about it. Now it is coal. This too will be forgotten."

13.             The message is now clear: Non-violent Satyagraha is no more than a carnival that can go on for eternity or dissipate. The danger of such apathy and arrogance is that people will become restive and take to violence. Simmering resentment is mounting throughout the length and breadth of the country and forebodings of anarchy are very much perceptible.

14.             It is in this backdrop of harsh realities that we consider it highly expedient that bold action is now needed to save the country from anarchic times ahead. It might be unconventional, some might view it even ‘unconstitutional’ too, but would it really be so if the honourable Chief Justice of India, the CEC, the CAG and the Chiefs of the Armed Forces sat together and discussed the vital national issues that are not getting resolved by any other democratic mechanism? Indian democracy is yearning for your guidance today.

15.             While we suggest no specific plan to India’s most enlightened brains and custodians of public faith, we would certainly beg you to act collectively, resolutely and effectively before it is too late to introduce a course correction in our governance and facilitate the country’s advance to peace, prosperity, power and glory. Your intervention can save India from going the Libyan, Egyptian or Syrian way. 

With best regards and lots of hope,
Yours faithfully,
                              Karan Kharb

Major General Mrinal Suman
The terrorist attack on Mumbai once again brought the issue of the quality of Indian political leadership in focus. Nearly 200 people lost their lives and left the nation humiliated. Yet, the Home Minister of the state, the man responsible for security, had the audacity to term it as a small incident. When people came out in the streets to give vent to their despair, leader of a national party lampooned them and passed crude remarks. Worse, we had the disgraceful sight of a Chief Minister of a state ridiculing the father of a martyr who was undergoing tremendous trauma at the loss of his son. “If it had not been (Major) Sandeep's house, not even a dog would have glanced that way," was his contemptible comment.

One gets reminded of two cartoons that appeared in the press in the wake of the terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament. One cartoon showed a terrorist trying to dissuade another terrorist from entering the main hall of the Parliament to lob grenades, saying, “No, no, don’t kill Indian politicians. That will be a pro-India act”. Another cartoon showed Indian citizens talking amongst themselves, “These Pakistani terrorists have let us down. They would have earned Indian gratitude by ridding us of a few politicians”.

The above mentioned cartoons are indicative of the poor esteem in which Indian political leadership is held. “God must be anti-India. He has been cursing India by inflicting such leaders on it. Sardar Patel died soon after Independence while lesser leaders survived. Every promising leader dies young while the corrupt oldies go on forever,” is a common refrain. Most Indians feel disgusted with the quality of present political leadership.

It is commonly said that cinema is a true reflection of popular thinking of the society at large. Villains have been an integral part of Indian cinema since the days of KN Singh. For the last few years, villainy has become the exclusive domain of political leaders. The moment a character in ‘khadi’ and white cap appears on the screen, the audience recognises him as the chief villain. Worse, he is shown to be occupying the chair of Home Minister. He patronizes criminal gangs, has corrupt police officers in tow and has no inhibitions in selling the country for money. He supports widow homes overtly but demands women covertly. He divides people by instigating religious riots. In short, he is depicted as the most unscrupulous and devious specimen of humanity. No political leader has disputed such projection as they all know it to be true.

A few years ago, while on a visit to Copenhagen an Indian visitor saw the Queen of Denmark doing her weekly shopping of household requirements in a mall. She was accompanied by a solitary maid. The Queen was picking up required items from the shelves and the maid was pushing the cart. Being used to seeing every leader accompanied by a posse of security personnel causing immense inconvenience to common citizens in public places, the Indian visitor was quite surprised and quizzed his local guide. The reply he received was quite an eye-opener - “If a sovereign needs protection from her own subjects, she might as well abdicate. Why should citizens pay for the security of a leader who feels insecure amongst her own people? Only devious leaders feel threatened and Denmark can well do without them.”

Compare the above with the prevailing cult in India – importance of a leader is judged by the number of security men surrounding him, hence the race to extract the highest category of security. Over 60 percent of NSG commando strength is deployed on personal security duties. It is an obnoxious sight to see goons masquerading as mass leaders and surrounded by elite security personnel. Many leaders intentionally create adversaries by their irresponsible statements and thereafter seek state protection for personal safety. We have states in which the leader of one party apprehends a threat from another party and demands Government protection, while the leader of the second party seeks similar security fearing attack by the first party. Both leaders (who may be petty gangsters) are provided state security. There cannot be a bigger misuse of taxpayers’ money.

People find it offensive when stopped for long periods by rude policemen to make way for the cavalcade of some self-opinionated and egotistical leader. Many people are of the view that no security whatsoever should be provided to any leader at national and state levels - whether in power or otherwise. If a leader is so timid and cowardly with regard to his personal safety, he might as well stay out of politics and public life. No one forces them to be in politics.

Some citizens are of the view that only a disliked leader feels threatened and not a popular one, and a disliked leader is not worth protecting at the cost of the exchequer. Additionally, no leader is so indispensable that one odd unfortunate incident of misdemeanor by a hot-head should be a cause of undue concern. Like common citizens, leaders should also learn to live with day to day trepidations and risks.

No one joins politics for public service. It is the most lucrative profession and has acquired traits of family business. Earlier, all parents dreamt of their progeny joining civil services or becoming engineers and doctors. Today, all sensible and far-sighted parents want their children (especially if they are good for nothing else) to join politics. It is commonly said that a single tenure even at the municipal corporation level is good enough to cater for the next three generations. A corporator carries enough clout to extract his pound of flesh before allowing any work to progress in his ward. If one looks around, the present crop of political leaders started as petty traders and today command wealth worth hundreds of crores of rupees. In no other profession can so much be amassed in so short a time.

Unfortunately in India, politics have come to be identified with everything immoral and decadent. The standing of politicians in India is at its lowest ebb today. They are being derided in media and public gatherings. One wonders what effect this public contempt has on the psyche of political leaders. Do they ever feel guilty and shamed? According to most observers, the present leadership is too thick skinned and quite brazen. They have no conscience. They are banking on short public memory to be back in the business of politicking. To them, only votes and power matter. Self introspection regarding their public image is not an exercise they ever like to indulge in.

 The Way Forward

 It is often said that people get the leadership they deserve. Why does India deserve such poor quality of leaders? Where have the Indians gone wrong? Do they have any alternative? When people go to vote, there is not a single name that inspires confidence and the whole exercise gets reduced to electing the lesser devil. Due to poor leadership, even after sixty years of Independence we are worst off governance-wise.
Undoubtedly, there is an urgent need to improve the quality of Indian leadership. Although there is no quick-fix solution, a beginning can certainly be made by exercising our franchise and ensuring that the leaders we elect are deserving of our confidence. All leaders over 65 years of age must be rejected outright. Has not the current crop of senior leaders ruled and ruined India enough? Any leader promoting his progeny must also be shunned. Dynasty politics is the bane of India. Parties functioning as family fiefdoms are an anathema to the concept of democracy. Moreover, no leader should be allowed more than two tenures of Parliament (both houses put together) and state assemblies.

Any leader who seeks votes in the name of caste, religion and region must be considered as an enemy of the nation and meted out the treatment accordingly. Politicians threatening the fabric of India’s social cohesion by playing vote bank politics should never be tolerated. Any party that gives tickets to anti-social elements and criminals must be boycotted as a whole. Finally, the solution lies in forcing all political parties to put up candidates with unquestioned integrity and unblemished track record. Parties must be made to fear the wrath of awakened public. Our current disgust with our political leadership must force a change. Our faith in democracy can never be allowed to waver.

दुश्मन भगाओ, देश बचाओ

जनता इन्हें गलियों में से उठा कर संसद और राज गद्दी तक पहुंचाती है. पर  आदत से मज़बूर ये अपनी असली औकात नहीं भूल पाते और संसद में आकर भी लग जाते हैं गाली-गलौज़ करने, माइक उखाड़ने, मारने-पीटने. इन्होनें पहले तो विधान सभाओं में बत्तमीज़ी का ज़ोर आज़मया, कपड़े फाड़े, माइक उखाड़े, फैंके; सदन में बैठ कर ब्लू फ़िल्में देखी, झोले भर भर रिश्वत खाई, धर्म-जाति का ज़हर घोट-घोट कर  जनता को पिलाया, भाई-भाई को दुश्मन बनाया; देश के संसाधनों की, सम्पत्ति की ऐसी लूट मचाई जिसकी मिसाल इतिहास में नहीं मिलती.  फ़िर संसद में सांसदों की खरीद फ़रोख्त का मेला लगाया, धक्का-मुक्की शुरू हो चुकी है. चार्ज-शीटड गुण्डे, गुनहगार जिन्हें किसी भी सरकारी नौकरी के योग्य नहीं माना जाता, वही (१६२ से भी अधिक) सांसद बन कर आज हमारे लिये कानून बना रहे हैं. दुर्योधन, दुश्शासन से भी ज़्यादा बेशर्म बलात्कारी/व्यभिचारी (तिवारी-गण, सिंघवी, मदेरना, कांडा आदि) तो यहां पहले से हैं हीं. अब देखिये कितनी द्रौपदियों का चीर हरण भी यहीं हुआ करेगा! और हम चुप बैठे लुटते रहें, इनके इशारों पर आपस में ही कटते-मरते रहें, बेइज़्ज़त होते रहें? कब तक? क्या हो गया हमारे आत्म सम्मान को, देश-भक्ति को, राष्ट्र गौरव को?

मैने दुकानदारों से, शिक्षकों से, वकीलों से, सेवा-निवृत्त कर्नलों-जनरलों, बाबुओं से पूछा: "ये सब कब तक सहन करते रहोगे?" सबने मुझे विस्मित भाव से देखा, व्यंग्यात्मक ढंग से हंसे जैसे मुझे उनके सामने नहीं, पागलखाने में होना चाहिये था. सबका ज़वाब भी एक जैसा ही था - "नहीं तो क्या कर लोगे? अन्ना हज़ारे जैसे त्यागी तपस्वी देश-भक्तों और बाबा राम देव जैसे धुरंधरों ने क्या कर लिया इनका?"  

पास ही में एक मोची एक किसान के जूतों की मरम्मत कर रहा था. किसान बीड़ी पी रहा था. कुछ लोग ठेली वाले के छोले-कुल्चों का मज़ा ले रहे थे. ये सब हमारी वर्ता सुन रहे थे. मैने बिना किसी एक तो इंगित किये यूं ही पूछ लिया - "क्या आप लोगों को ये सब मंज़ूर है?" वे सब एक स्वर में ललकार उठे - "बस बहुत हो चुका इनकी नंगी राजनीति का ताण्डव; अब समय गया है, या तो ये हटें; वरना हम मारेंगे या मरेंगे - अब छोड़ेंगे नहीं". 
आइये कम से कम इन वीरों का साथ देकर ही देश को बचायें. आसान सी शुरूआत करें:

.    सबसे पहले अपने विचारों में क्रांति लायें;

.    समझें और समझाएं कि वोट केवल देश के हित के लिये हो. भाई-भतीजावाद, परिवारवाद, जाति, धर्म वा क्षेत्रीय हितों के लिये कदापि नहीं;

.    भ्रष्टाचार का हर जगह कड़ा विरोध करें;

.    निजी स्वार्थ से ऊपर उठ कर कानून का सच्चे मन से पालन करें;

.    जाति-धर्म की संकीर्ण दायरों से बाहर निकलें; सौहर्द और भाईचारा बढ़ाएं - आखिर वसुधैव कुटुम्बकमभी तो भारतीय संस्कृति का ही सन्देश है.
जय हिन्द, जय भारत
