From investigative agencies to courts, questions on the ecosystem… How will PM Modi’s dream of attacking corruption be fulfilled?

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on the occasion of Independence Day that today as the country is entering the nectar period, it is his constitutional and democratic responsibility to take the fight against corruption to a decisive juncture. He said that unless the feeling of corruption and hatred towards the corrupt is not created, they are not forced to look down on them socially, then this mentality is not going to end. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken of a strong attack on corruption, but is it possible so easily. Is that the system (System To Fight Against Corruption) through which corruption can be attacked, about which it is said that it is not possible to eliminate it from a country like India. Recently, action like ED has taken place and bundle of notes was found, is it possible to seriously hurt corruption by just some such action? And as far as creating hatred is concerned, this thinking is good but it is also no less difficult task especially in a country like India.

Is it possible to eliminate corruption from a country like India?
Corruption is not limited to just raiding someone’s place and getting a bundle of notes. If corruption is seen in the context of India, then here it mostly means bribe. It is said that if any work is to be done, first bribe. It is dominated by small units to large levels. It is not that it is only in India, people in many countries of the world are suffering from it. PM Modi’s initiative is good but how will it have an impact on the ground. Today, even though ED and CBI are being talked about, but if we leave out the vacant posts there, then there are more than 5 lakh posts vacant in the police department alone in the country.

At the same time, the number of vacant posts in the center is close to 10 lakh. And lastly, where these cases go, that is, if the court looks there, then more than 4 crore cases are pending. If it is looked at closely, then somewhere it is connected to each other. Not enough police force, not enough number of judges, not enough staff in the department. In such a situation, is there any advanced technology through which it can be monitored.

This mentality is not going to end until corruption and hatred towards the corrupt is not created, they are not forced to look down on them socially. Therefore, we need to be very aware of corruption as well as against the corrupt.

How will it be controlled, see this condition of vacant posts

In the same monsoon session, it was told by the government that about one million posts are vacant in its various ministries and departments. However, it was also said by the government that in the next one and a half years these posts would be filled in mission mode. The government said that out of more than 40 lakh sanctioned posts in central government departments, 9.79 lakh posts are vacant as of March 2021. This post is vacant in Civil, Home Ministry, Post, Railway and Revenue Department. Recently, Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai told that about 5 lakh 30 thousand police posts are lying vacant in the country. This reply from the government came in response to a question asked about the vacant posts in police stations across the country. According to the information given by the Minister of State, the sanctioned number of police is 26 lakh 23 thousand 225 but the actual number is 20 lakh 91 thousand and 488.

At the same time, more than 4.5 crore cases are pending in all the courts of the country. Various reasons are counted behind this, from lack of judges to litigation. According to the data available on the website of the Supreme Court, till April 1, 2022, there are more than 70 thousand cases pending. At the same time, according to the Attorney General, 42 lakh cases are pending in the High Courts across the country. At the same time, Chief Justice of the country NV Ramana said that till 2016, there were 2 crore 65 lakh cases pending in the country but now the number of pending cases has exceeded 4 crore.

Scams did not happen but questions remain
In the last eight years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, it can be said that there has been no corruption at the central level. But this does not mean that corruption is eradicated from everywhere. The question is being raised on behalf of the opposition that why the Lokpal is not being mentioned now. Recently, taking the name of Anna Hazare, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that Anna Hazare had created terror across the country in the name of Lokpal. Where have you disappeared now? Why are they not speaking on Lokpal now?

CM Gehlot said that Anna Hazare had defamed the UPA government a lot. The question has also been raised by the opposition that after coming to power at the Center, BJP had formed a committee on the investigation of black money, in the last 8 years that committee has not submitted any report. At the same time, the opposition also targets Vijay Mallya, Lalit Modi for leaving the country by defrauding the bank and the government. Regarding the action taken by the ED in the recent past, the opposition is also alleging that why unilateral action. PM Modi has talked about hatred towards people involved in corruption but the truth is also that such people dominate the society.

What does this report say
A study report from the same year claimed that the happiness of about 43.2 percent of Indians is affected by corruption. Focusing on happiness levels, consulting firm HappyPlus prepared the report, which found that 43.2 percent of Indians believe there is corruption in government and business and it frustrates people.

Corruption monitoring organization released its report of Transparency International Index CPI 2021 in the month of January this year. In this report, India has been ranked 85th in the list of 180 countries in the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2021. According to a report released by Transparency International, India’s ranking has improved by one place compared to the last time. The ranking lists 180 countries and territories based on perceived levels of public sector corruption, according to experts and businessmen.

In the report of Transparency International, a global organization on corruption, it was mentioned that India is the country in Asia where bribery is high. According to the report, people use lobbying to get government work done and also give bribes. There is a belief that if there is no lobbying and if the bribe is not given, then the work will hang. In this survey, the common people were asked to give their opinion on the state of corruption and focus on the difficulties faced by them while meeting basic needs. The survey was conducted in more than 200 cities of the country.
