CORRUPT OFFICIALS DO NOT FEAR MODI GOVERNMENT YET
The recent arrest of Manuneethi Chozhan, the Registrar of Companies , on corruption charges in Chennai proves the extent to which the government officials, business men and politicians collude together to destroy this country. This arrest of the registrar of companies only indicates that the Naredra Modi government has not been able to create any fear amongst officials yet , about indulging in corrupt practices.
This man was arrested earlier and was facing serious charges but was reinstated later on. The fact that such a person has been allowed to occupy such a crucial position at top level only indicates that the corrupt officials can get away with anything by playing politics. Media reports say that this man has several political connections .
In the past, many corrupt officials have gone scot free after initial arrest and getting bail. Such corrupt people seem to have great faith in Indian judicial system that it would not give any judgement too soon. The story of a Chief Minister’s case pending in the court for nearly fifteen years is a ready example.
The net effect is that many corrupt people, whether they are officials or politicians or businessmen or even judges, do not suffer at all except for a brief period when they would be arrested and then released on bail.
Ultimately, corruption can be wiped out in India only by a determined and honest central government and non-corrupt efficient judiciary and what crusaders against corruption in public life may do ceases to by only symbolic with no dire consequences for the perpetrators.
Narendra Modi’s government is yet to give an impression that it would effectively make the corrupt people pay the price for their misdeeds. Whatever may be Mr. Modi’s achievements in other fronts, if he does not succeed in wiping out such corruption at national and regional level, his countrymen/women would not be satisfied.
