Lokpal : Argentina experience

28Aug11

In 1998, Argentina was a rich and successful country on a double digit growth path. There was equitable development with unemployment at mere 3%. 

During that time a bill similar to Lokpal Bill  ‘Public Accountability Bill (Rendición Pública de Cuentas)’ was introduced at the behest of few ELITE groups who were serious to institue an Extra Constitutional Control over the Government.

There were frivolous complaints, officials were dismissed, blackmailing happened. And the Bill became a tool for harassment in the hands of unaccountable persons. The result was that officials became scared to take decisions, projects were held up and the government lost credibility. Meanwile for the fear,  goverment handed major departments to private sector which, in the absence of any check, started minting money at the cost of public good.

The economy of Argentina collapsed,exports stopped, there was runaway inflation, and the country plunged into poverty with  unemployment at  50%.

So if  we want  India to progress on equitavle note, and if we want to prevent a collapse in India, we must be critical, nay, oppose the Lokpal Bill.

Long live democracy, long live  Just-India.

    We surely do not want a repeat of what happend in Argentina to happen to us.. Jan Lokpal will be of no good.. these so called representatives of the civil society have left soo many loop holes in the Jan Lokpal that .. it will create a burden on the whole system.. what we need is a better transparency and implementation in the current system.. another wrong will just worsen the situation.. Team Anna should stop misguiding the nation..

    DALITS SEEM TO BE HAPPY WITH THE PRESENT DISPENSATION
    i THINK THEY HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN THE CONTINUATION OF THE CORRUPT POLITICS. WITH RESERVATIONS ALL AROUND, THEY ARE HAVING A HONEYMOON LIKE TIME. THEY FEEL THREATENED THAT WILL CHANGE IF LOKPAL BECOMES A REALITY, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS POLICIES WILL BE UNDER INCREASING SCRUTINY.
