BUT MANY of the provisions such as restrictions of business dealings of their family-members with public authorities, attending ostentatious and lavish parties in their honour, are being openly flouted by Ministers especially in name of their birthday celebrations.
There are many instances like en-masse change of logos of many public-sector banks allegedly for benefit of family-member of a Union Minister. Rather conduct-code should totally ban putting pictorial posters, hoardings and advertisements for birthday-wishes to Ministers either by public-authorities or their supporters. Even a ban should be imposed on their attending lavish parties like in mega-budgeted marriage-related functions.
Giving liberty to Ministers fund-raising for their political parties or any other institution is often misused as ministerial influence. Rather persons running NGOs in name of family-members should not be appointed ministers. A minister should also not hold any post in political party or even in any private and public body.
Code of conduct for Ministers should be publicized adequately through newspaper advertisements to make media and people proper vigil on its violation. Comments from public should be invited to make such conduct code stringent to induce honesty and austerity for ministers.
