|LOK PAL BILL
It was really heartening to note that almost all the parties expressed their opinions on the contentious Lok Pal Bill in the Parliament. A path-breaking and the one which will stand the test of time is a must. This is because a bill of this importance will have to stand the scrutiny of time. Once passed with requisite amendments, it will have to be for a longer period of time like other bills which are in vogue since long. The Lok Pal Bill has raised certain critical points with regard to corruption rampant from top to bottom. In order to meet the aspirations of the teaming millions, it is paramount that a bill comes out which may help smooth governance.
For its smooth passage, it is important that all the parties should show their resolve and keep their difference at the back burner and pass the bill suitable for good governance. Corruption which is eating into the vitals of our society has to be fought at all fronts. If this has to be done, it is important that there is a stringent law in place is required. History will not forgive those who may put a spanner in the way of a good legislation. But the coveted bill should not prove to be a paper tiger but should have teeth to deal with the corruption in real sense of terms.
A good Lok Pal Bill with all ingredients of good governance will be acceptable to all including Anna Sahib and his team of crusaders. It will also be a tribute to his honest efforts. But how to implement the important points enunciated in the bill should also addressed on ground. Sagacity far sightedness are called for, for a good bill to be successful.
