Legislation, rules and regulations for everything do not always solve problems: NHRC chief
Legislation, rules and regulations for everything do not always solve problems, rather too many of them create confusion in the minds of gullible masses and tend to compound the problems.
Justice H.L. Dattu, Chairperson, National Human Rights Commission said this while inaugurating the two day National Consultation organized by the NHRC in New Delhi to assess the prevailing human rights situation the country.

The general good of the people is decided by the minimum basic needs and amenities available to them as the absence thereof becomes a reason for violation of their fundamental and human rights, the NHRC Chairperson said.

Based on the regional and national consultation, the Commission would submit a report to the UN mandated Human Rights Council for the third Universal Periodic Review, UPR of the human rights situation in the country.

He said that we must discuss the fundamental issues of governance affecting the day to day life of the people, find out the draw backs and try and show the way forward.

"We must give away this notion that with time, everything would fall in place and move on making only hollow promises," said the Justice Dattu.

He said that if the issues were addressed priority wise, many problems affecting human rights at micro or sectoral level may not even arise so as to need further legislation or rules to fix them.

The NHRC Chairperson said that the concerned governments, ministries and departments under, them must involve philanthropists, corporates, as part of their social responsibility, in running mass scale awareness campaigns on all aspects of public life and good in the interest of clean and transparent governance, which is the buzz word today.
