We began our post-independence era with checks and controls (rationing, licensing, and permits) as part of the system we inherited from our predecessors. These checks and Controls were promulgated under Industries Development and Regulation ACT-1951 (IDRA) no sooner the Constitution was put to force.
Checks, controls, and enforcement's became our basic tools of administration. People shall perhaps remember how the quotas and licenses enriched the government officials and the touts (who would run their industries in their briefcases). Touts would sell quotas and licenses to actual users at exorbitant prices.
And then was introduced the draconian DGTD (Directorate General of Technical Development, 1951) and MRTP (Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1969) to throttle industries in the name of socialism, and keep the elite under thumb. This is how the industries were throttled and economy shown the door. The bureaucracy would undermine all – be it an individual, professional, trader, businessman or industrialist – in the name of “the system”. All were subject to rigging and humiliation. There was no difference between the collecting of land revenue from poor peasants in the pre-independence era, or the collecting of tax or checking of books of accounts of affluent society after. The principle of enforcement for the people of India was a harrowing acquisition from the British system of governance and we adopted the same bureaucracy.
The checks, controls, and unscrupulous laws and regulations gave birth to red-tapism, delays, and corruption. Enforcement brought contempt. Corruption set in and spread into the entire system and the populace like wildfire.
There is no difference between such bureaucrats and extortionists. One robs at gunpoint, the other with his power and authority in broad daylight.
Now corruption is a forced part of our national character and a way of life. We are an indifferent society today, callous and self-interested, having long shed our originality. “We shall shed blood and sweat for the nation and take the nation to prosperity,” sounds like a hollow slogan that we chanted in our childhood or ignorance. There is a total drift in our thinking and working. Now Welfare of the country is long forgotten.
These truths are just a glance through our highly kleptocratic and fratricidal system of governance that we have been made to erect for ourselves. Many of our guardians are parasites feasting on the blood and sweat of the people.
This is how the nation’s wealth went to individuals and black economy soared. While the nation bled, the political class and bureaucracy made fortunes. For more please refer my book (Page 189) http://indiainchaos.com/
Criminalisation of politics is amongst the most conspicuous causes of our governments failing perennially in accomplishing the fundamental incumbencies of the Constitution.
"Nation" and the "Law of Humanity" stand above all other considerations and demand for the care of perennially deprived and suffering people first, which have remained woe-betide and economically enslaved for long 68 years for "no fault of theirs" due to incapable and tainted guardians in the system.
Apparently, these suffering people are the lone innocent victims in the whole gambit. On the other hand, the tainted Legislators, who
carry criminal charges on them, enjoy liberty, dignity and authority. These dubious characters are the major cause of the plight of our suffering people and dilapidation of the nation.
'Innocent suffering' and 'tainted Legislators enjoying liberty' is an abuse to the 'law of the land'.
DEBAR THE TAINTED LEGISLATORS
Logically speaking, when we don't hire a tainted employee even at a lower level at homes, offices, businesses or industries, how can we permit such dubious characters to run a nation as mammoth as India with 137 crore people (by 2019)?
The Legislature cannot always play a Nero and shut its eyes towards the consistent regression of the nation and the continually deteriorating plight of our mammoth impoverished and deprived masses
I will like to strongly submit that "no law can be legal (even in the guise of RP Act)" if it is the root cause of perennial sufferings and impoverishment of our large populace.
"Parliament's power to amend the Constitution did not extend Parliament the power to tampering with its basic structure or framework".
The purpose of the Constitution is welfare of the people, not the Legislators,
Misuse of RP Act and defiance of Article 13 are the evils
Of all evils that have sent the 'Nation' to shambles
And 'people' to rags and tatters
Our present 'elections due process' permitting freebies and nagging and accusing opposite parties and candidates is ominous and self-destructive. This irrational process must be banished with all might for the good of the 'people' and saving the 'nation'.
