The whole approach of the civil society activists is legalistic, with an unbounded faith in laws as cure for all. In India we have a plethora of laws but very little law and order. It is essential that any solution for corruption must involve political scientists, management experts, administrators in order to work out laws and institutions that work, says Colonel Dr Anil Athale (retd)- Do you agree?
We do have a plethoras of laws, sir, fully agreed, but what is missing is the will to implement these laws strictly. take for example, a very very small thing, traffic management, when the traffic police is watching, every one behaves, and then the traffic police is not there, you must have seen what actully happens. if our government uses and implements the present laws properly and in the right spirit, i dont think we need a lok pal also. when the basic respect to law is missing, what will the lokpal also do ???
