The reason why the Lok Pal bill has been delayed is because ombudsmen have rarely been able to do much elsewhere.
In India a Lok Pal will amount mostly to investment in another layer of useless and expensive bureaucracy.
To reduce corruption we need administrative reform and legitimized donations to political parties. This might help.Less clerks. Transparent rules for government procedures. Punishment for delaying tactics.
Went to Jantar Mantar this morning. Anna Hazare was resting while TV reporters whipped up a frenzy on his behalf.
When will they snap out of this frenzy and realize that nobody except Parliament has a right to make laws?
When will they realize that the jan lok pal vidheyak is flawed, draconian and dangerously undemocratic?
Anna Hazare is using the rage of ordinary Indians against corruption to ram a bad law down our throats.
