Murder of RTI activist in Gujarat is shocking
It refers to shocking murder of yet another whistle-blower RTI activist Amit Jethwa in Gujarat. Immediate concrete steps are needed at the highest level.
IT REFERS to shocking murder of yet another whistle-blower RTI activist Amit Jethwa in Gujarat. Immediate concrete steps are needed at the highest level to prevent such happenings and to ensure that law and order authorities protect people like him, who are fighting the rich and the mighty. Fortunately in the mud of politically corrupt system, we also have some ideals leaders like Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh. A high level meeting between Chairperson of National Advisory Council, Prime Minister, Chief Information Commissioner Shri Wajahat Habibullah, RTI crusaders Aruna Roy and Arvind Kejriwal should be urgently summoned to trace practical ways for preventing murder of RTI activists and other whistle-blowers.
 
It is an irony that criminals and corrupt ones enter our political system and get security, while whistle-blowers get threat to life from such notorious politicians or those patronised by such politicians. If our governance system cannot provide security to those,  who expose corruption, then our elected representatives also should not have any right to burden exchequers heavily for their security which in most cases is nothing but status-symbol. Security-cover of all Parliamentarians, members of state-legislatures and ministers (both central and state) should be abolished till foolproof security may be provided to whistle-blowers. Those who are worried of their life due to being in public life need not contest elections.
 
Only President, Vice president, Prime Minister and Chief Ministers should be provided security-cover apart from some others like members of Nehru-Gandhi family who are under high-risk of militant-threats. Things can automatically improve when our system gets refined to an extent that people like Aruna Roy, Arvind Kejriwal etc may not have any hesitation to replace present breed of corrupt politicians running politics like money-minting business-shops.
