Goa: RTI Forum’s fight against corruption has to be each one’s fight

Recommended Posts

The lack of seriousness that the BJP government attaches to crucial constitutional posts like the Lok ayukta and the Chief Information Commissioner and his State informational Commissioners should surprise no one. The government, which came to power with its promise of ending graft, has become one of its more tacit protectors. Therefore the petition moved by the Goa RTI forum asking for the position of a Goa State Information Commissioner and a Lokayukta to be filled up hasn’t come a day too soon. And it is a bit of a shame really, that the Goa government will have to be asked to do by court, what the ruling party had promised to do, to the people of the state when they went to look for votes during the 2013 assembly election.

The ruling party in Goa or in Central Government does not bother about what they promised to do, to the people of the state and India when they went to look for votes during the 2013 assembly election and 2014 Loksabha election. They anyhow want power.

      I beleive in this last 50 years or even more after we have got our independence this is the first time that our Government has sincerely thought of nailing the corrupt officials and has brought this ACT. No doubt the corrupt officials and people in power on the other hand are thinking out ways and means as to how to dilute this act so as not to pass the information regarding the wrong things they do or might do. One of this was not to give information regarding what ever has been dealt on corresponding side before an order has been passed. I beleive we all Government officers who are non corrupt, have nothing to fear from this act and should whole heartedly support this act and make it more stronger.

      Hyderabad, July 07: Central Vigilance Commissioner,. Pratyush Sinha on Saturday said that the introduction of technology in the forms of e-procurement and e-payment in all government organizations and PSUs (Public Sector Undertakings) becomes extremely critical and essential to combat corruption in public procurement.
       
      At present, both, the Government organizations and PSUs make an annual procurement of over Rs. One lakh crores, he noted.
       
      Addressing a gathering at the 4th anniversary celebrations of the Vigilance study circle, Mr. Sinha noted that the Right to Information Act and its extensive use by the citizens were helping to fight against corruption. The RTI Act in tandem with the extensive use of information technology should lead to significant fall in corruption and should be widely encouraged for application in various government departments and PSUs. Technology could be of immense help in tackling the problems of pilferage and loss in transportation of goods and in the aviation sector, he added.
       
      The Commissioner further said that the introduction of technology should not be at the cost of proper training, orientation and commitment of the vigilance personnel. The conventional methods of vigilance would still be valid and any effective anti-corruption body must be based on an optimal mix of technology and trained manpower. An institution like the Vigilance study circle could play an important role in propagating the elements of good governance, in highlighting the wrong-doings and in suggesting ways and means to fighting individual and institutional corruption, he observed.
