dna special: UPA government mulls ordinance route to put in place strong anti-graft measures

  • A Veeramani DNA
The UPA government is mulling to bring an ordinance to put in place a strong “anti-corruption package” as envisaged by the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

Top sources here told dna, while the government was still exploring the parliamentary route to enact six strong and effective laws currently pending before the parliament, ordinance route too was being seriously debated at the highest level, keeping in view the opposition and allies blocking the passage of legislations in past two sessions.

Four of the bills pending in Lok Sabha if not enacted immediately would lapse with the tenure of the current House expiring with the announcement of election schedule. These bills are Prevention of Corruption Bill 2013, Right of Citizen to Time Bound Delivery of Goods & Services and Redressal of their Grievance Bill 2011, the Public Procurement Bill 2013 and a bill on Foreign Bribery.

In the hope to revive the winter session and pass this legislative agenda the government has not yet recommended to the president Pranab Mukherjee to prorogue the session. “We still hope better sense prevails on the opposition to allow the session to conduct business. But yes, if the House is not allowed to function, we will take alternate route to keep up our political commitments,” a senior cabinet minister told dna.

Other two proposed legislations — Whistleblowers Protection Bill, 2011 and Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill 2010 are pending in the Rajya Sabha. They will not lapse as the Rajya Sabha is a permanent house.

Realising that they have run out of time to get all these legislations passed, the UPA government is planning to promulgate ordinance and let the next government get the bills passed in the parliament.

Rahul Gandhi had conveyed his wish to bring in the package of anti-corruption legislations first on December 18 in the Lok Sabha calling for “a comprehensive anti-corruption code” through these six legislations. He reiterated it again at a press conference here last Friday after a day-long session with the Congress chief ministers.

Apparently, Rahul is over busy trying to remove the tag of the most corrupt government stuck to the UPA government by sending out a message that only they have brought in the most powerful framework of laws to curb corruption.

Prime minister Manmohan Singh is reported to have directed all ministers concerned to fulfil Rahul Gandhi’s wish without any delay. However, it is not clear if six separate ordinances will be issued or the pending legislations will be clubbed into a single overarching ordinance.

Law minister Kapil Sibal is understood to be examining in consultation with other ministers, who had moved these different Bills, if they can be all put in a single ordinance.

There is a Modi wave still BJP needs 400 Crore for Poll promotion??

From where BJP getting all this money? Adani? Ambani? Black Money??? No one knows!!!


Piyush Pandey, Prasoon Joshi and Sam Balsara to helm BJP’s Rs 400 crore poll drive - The Times of India
Besides the Rs 500-crore ad blitzkrieg which the Congress has planned, the ruling United Progressive Alliance is parallely running the 'Bharat Nirman' campaign. The Rs 100-crore campaign, being handled by ad agency Percept/H, is run from the budget of the information & broadcasting ministry headed by Manish Tiwari.
So my tax money is being used for the Bharat Nirmaan campaign AND the Owl Baba's image uplift. Great. :hitwall:

Yaar you congressis are Bunch of AH, i can provide you articles mentioning congress usage of 2000+ crore in adv and BS campaign which we all know is waste.







It’s raining political ads and copywriters are reaping the whirlwind. All major political parties, national and regional, have recruited advertising agencies to sell them in the coming Lok Sabha polls. The size of the election publicity pie is Rs 1,000 crore, estimates Group M, an international media investment arm of the WPP group which may well escalate to Rs 2,000 crore.


Selling our Leaders In the Rs 2000 Crore Scramble -The New Indian Express







A finance ministry panel okayed Rs. 630 crore for the 12th Five Year Plan for the campaign. Half of the money would be spent till March 2014. Around that time the model code of conduct would come into force, as the current Lok Sabha’s term expires on May 31, 2014. Earlier, an amount of Rs. 180 crore was expected to be spent on the campaign by February next year.

Secondly, the most important point in our party’s opinion which one can disagree with, in a separate Telangana definitely the BJP will grow. It is the only political beneficiary of the creation of Telangana.

How?

Because of history and because of the Congress and Telangana Rashtra Samithi. Actually, the TRS will not be relevant any more. Now it is a huge challenge for the TRS and because of that they are talking of merger with the Congress. I don’t know what will happen, but the TRS is a one-issue party. They wanted Telangana, they got Telangana. Unlike the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha which has their support base among tribals, here it is a one-agenda party of Telangana, will they be relevant? So, a political vacuum will be created.

Also, the TDP is branded in Telangana as an Andhra party, as an NTR party. So this vacuum of the TRS and TDP will be filled by the BJP in future. I hope I am wrong.

Who will fill this vacuum? I cannot fill that vacuum, the Left parties cannot fill that vacuum, and the Congress as a party can absorb leaders of the TDP and TRS, but what about that space? So, Telangana is a fertile ground for the BJP, if not today then tomorrow!

BJP finds supporters in the separatist hit areas of J and K.

Baramulla: It was a chilly afternoon on January 10 when a group of young boys known only as stone-pelters and protestors from North Kashmir's Old-Town Baramulla, sat cross-legged in the carved wood and varnished hall of Dak Bungalow, Baramulla. There were no security personnel in sight to guard the meeting venue, no curious visitors, the silence surrounding the hall occasionally broken by the soft thuds of melting ice falling from the rooftop. A clean-shaven man in his early thirties started speaking from one end of an oval table. Restless boys with ambivalent faces, all from the much-feared Old Town area, giving a patient hearing to Ravinder Raina, the Jammu and Kashmir president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, the BJP's youth wing. A BJP meeting in Old Town on January 10. Shahid Tantray / Firstpost Days after Raina addressed a crowed of nearly eighty boys who locals identify as the usual suspects participating in any violent protest against the government, it emerged that the BJP had managed to bring into its fold more than 70 youngsters from the area of Baramulla town where even police have failed to establish an outpost for nearly a decade. It may not be a substantial number, Raina says, but no political party, not even the regional ones, can claim to have more than 50 workers from Old Town. "I won't call them stone pelters: these are young boys, unemployed and restless, cheated by successive governments in Kashmir. They have been wronged by the system, and in future we will fight their cases," Raina told Firstpost. Mainstream political party leaders have restrained from engaging in dialogue with these young boys for reasons best known to them, he said. "It's a great achievement for us. They are our kids. We need to get these boys into the mainstream. When we explained to them what the BJP was able to do during Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's time their eyes were wide open," he added. The fear of Modi as a Hindutva hardliner was not even discussed. It a surprising political development that has gone almost unnoticed in Kashmir. Old-Town Baramulla is not just any other area of conflict-ridden Kashmir. Security agencies call it the 'Red Zone' of Kashmir. Separatist sentiments run deep among the residents of the town, a bastion of the Jamait Islamia, a pro Pakistani group. Having affiliation with a mainstream political party is akin to inviting death -- for their association with political parties, militants have killed people in broad daylight here. Even the BJP's Yuva Morcha drive to get youngsters from here into its cadre took dozens of anxious meetings. Long persuasion by BJP leaders included many nightlong sessions about the party's plank of economic development for the state, and a helping hand for those "wronged by the system." Muneer Ahmad (name changed), 22, says he indulged in stone pelting once and the police registered a case against him, as he was caught on camera throwing stones. He went to all the political parties but no one came to his rescue. "When the party leaders told me they will fight for us, I joined the party. It is not just about the case but about their efforts -- at least they came to meet us, no one else did," he says. For successive state governments and security agencies, stone pelting and stone-pelters have remained a cause for concern. Most of the stone pelting in Baramulla, happens on the four bridges connecting Old with New Town. These bridges also happen to be the routes for many border areas of Kashmir. And it is here, on these bridges, that most of the death occurred during two incidents of unrest in 2008 and 2010, including that a 13-year-old boy who was allegedly thrown into river by the security forces. The state government, to curb the stone pelting, came up with a project to de-congest the slum-like Old Town, a plan conceived after the 2010 agitation in the valley. The reason, many security analysts say, was to try to decongest the 13 Mohallas of the Old Town and neighbouring Azadganj. These areas were the places where most of the stone pelting took place. These are incidentally also the places which are most congested. The growth of extremist religious organizations has been tremendous in more then two decades of conflict. In the 2008 Assembly elections, only 56 out of an estimated 50,000 voters in Old Town exercised their franchise. The reason might be attributed to the fact that almost every Mohalla had a warning against voting, pasted on the front doors of mosques by one or other militant group. No one determined whether those posters were really pasted by militants or by religious groups, but the threats had such an impact that apart from security forces, only dogs were seen on the streets on polling day. Prior to 1947, Old Town had played a central role in trade with Rawalpindi and Lahore, providing services and logistics to traders and travelers. But after 1947, the trade route was closed and the town's economic foundations were shattered. Slowly, Old Town became mired in backwardness. Even today, many homes in its winding lanes have no proper sewage system. Young people are well-educated, the product of the dramatic reforms introduced by Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah after independence, but they have little economic opportunity. Despite people being well educated, most young boys here are continuously on the radar of security agencies; in some cases for no reason, an unwritten code that started in the early years of militancy. Many observers say it is this kind of apathy and attitude which has made Old Town a no-go area for government officials. BJYM State Vice-President Ashiq Hussain Dar who has been working to bring Kashmiri youth into the party fold says it is not the coming elections that led them to join, but the sense of oneness the boys get when a state president of a national party meets them many times. "No political leader, not even an MLA, has meet them before us. Are they not part of us? Are they not Indians," Ashiq asks. BJP has never fielded a candidate in Baramulla. Even if it does, these handful of workers might not ensure a seat. But imagine if the BJP manages to get 50 votes in Old Town where, in the last two elections, not more than a hundred votes have been cast.
