DEPRAVED POLITICAL BUREAUCRACY UNDER TRIAL

POLITICAL BUREAUCRACY

Inequality in all its forms has now become a political problem that ultimately leads to socio-economic incongruity in the global political economy. The Union Government led by Mr. NarendraModi has been confronted with many issues relating to corruption and nepotism since they came into power. The consequences of Demonetization, Communal violence, GST, undue importance to cows by ignoring human values, corruption of BJP leaders and their family members etc. have created chaos as well as insecurity feelings among the people of India.

It is quite astounding to go through the news item regarding the decision of Amit Shah’s son to file a Rs.100-crore defamation suit against a website that alluded the alleged irregularities of his company, Temple Enterprise Pvt.Ltd. It has been reported that the turnover of his companyrose 16,000 times from Rs.50, 000 in 2014-15 to Rs. 80.5 crore in 2015-16. Here the roles to be played by the Directorate of Enforcement and the Income Tax authorities are under suspicion since it is assumed that no step or measure they have taken to issue notice to the concerned for an investigation. The parochial attitudes of the Government authorities create derogatory imputation against them. The reticent gesticulations of the BJP leaders are incongruous.

Another serious issue with regard to the credibility of the union government is their controversial decision to write off the exorbitant amounts of bigcorporate. State Bank of India had written off Vijay Mallya’s 1,200 crores dues. Brinda Karate, the veteran CPM leader alleged, “In the last three years, waiver of bank loans to the corporate sector touched Rs 6.8 lakh-crore. 70 per cent of loans waived were of corporate,” Whether it is written off or waived, the small tax amounts honestly paid by the poor citizens of India are for the big corporate. It is also said that the SBI and its erstwhile associates alone have written off Rs27,574 crore in 2016-17, according to the RBI data on ‘write offs’ done by public sector banks.The RBI data is a terrible shock to a layman, forduring 2013-14, write off figure was Rs. 34,409 crore thatsubsequently rose to Rs. 49,018 crore. So, the cumulative amount written off in the last five fiscals ending March 2017 was Rs. 2, 49,927crore according to the RBI data.
Not merely the economic stability of the nation but all other areas such as political, secular and democratic domains, as inserted in the preamble of the Constitution of India, are also endangered. The political bureaucracy should realize thefact that the insecurity feelings of the people will lead to resentment and pandemonium.Intrusion of fascism should be prevented with a view to strengthen the unity and integrity of the people of India, failing which we will be constrained witness a disastrous end which will remind us of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
