(I am drowning,gaddar? Anna Hazare was depicted as a modern messiahwholike Moseshad come to rescue his chosen people and lead them to a land of honey and milk Now that the brouhaha and hullabaloo has subsidedit is time to make a cooldispassionate and logical assessment of Hazare and his movement I have no doubt that Anna Hazare is an honest manbut my point is that the problems facing the country (and corruption is certainly one of them) are so massive that they can only be solved by a rationalscientific approachnot by emotional outbursts Honesty alone is not enough So far as I can gatherAnna Hazare has no scientific ideas Consider the following: His solution to alcoholism is to tie alcoholics to a pole and whip them Is this a rational solution Most poor people who drink liquor in this country drink cheap country liquornot scotch They drink to get some temporary relief from their miserable lives To abolish alcoholism among them would be possible only by abolishing povertyand that can be done by raising their standard of living and giving them decent lives This is a gigantic taskand cannot be solved by flogging them in public Anna Hazare also demands a right to recall elected representatives But how is that possible within the system Supposing a law is made that a motion can be moved for the recall of an MLA or MP signed by 10000 voters But for getting this motion passedthere will have to be voting by all the voters in the constituency This would mean another election Is this feasible An election entails a huge amount of expenditure Can a poor country like ours have repeated elections I think the idea is totally impractical Now coming to the Lokpal Billwhether the Jan Lokpal Bill or the sarkari Lokpal Billit envisages overseeing the work of some 55 lakh government employees in the country (of which 13 lakhs are in the railways alone)from prime minister to peon Surely one person cannot enquire into the lakhs of complaints which are bound to pour in It will require thousands of Lokpalsperhaps 50000to do this All of them will have to be provided salaries and other amenitiessuch as housingoffices and staff And then where is the guarantee that they will not themselves become corrupt In factconsidering the low level of morality prevailing in Indiawe can be fairly certain that a large number of them will become blackmailers The Lokpal Bill will create a parallel bureaucracywhich will turn into Frankensteins monster Instead of curtailing corruptionin all probabilityit willat a strokedouble or triple corruption in the country I regret to say that the implications of creating such an apparatus were not rationally thought outand instead some people thought that all the problems of corruption will be solved by shouting Bharat mata ki jai or Inquilab zindabad from the Jantar Mantar or Ramlila ground in Delhi I may clarify that I am not against any kind of Lokpal Justice Hegde did a fantastic job in exposing the corruption of the mining mafia in Karnataka But the type of Lokpal envisaged in the Jan Lokpal bill or the government Lokpal bill are clearly impractical and unworkable I would therefore respectfully urge Parliament to defer consideration of the bill before it and refer the matter to a standing committee (as Lalu Prasad has suggested)where experts from various fields in the country and outside be invited to give their views Only then can a workable Lokpal machinery can be created Passing bills in a hurry and under pressure from some people having their own agenda will only add to the huge problems facing the country The writera former judge of the Supreme Courtis chairman of the Press Council For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published:

self-imposed deadline of March 31 seeks to restrict Iran’s nuclear programme and prevent Tehran from making a nuclear weapon in return for a phased easing of sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy The longstanding nuclear dispute between Iran and the West had entered a new phase when new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called for the resumption of serious negotiations in August 2013 followed by a phone conversation between Rouhani and US President Barack Obama the next month An interim deal was announced in November 2013 but the road to the framework agreement has been long and winding The P5+1 and Tehran now face weeks of detailed drafting which must produce a final agreement by the June 30 deadline Critical for the international community is the Iranian “break-out” time — the time needed to detect and respond to an attempt to subvert the deal and push for weapons-grade enrichment of fissile material That period appears to be a year — better than the two-three month window that critics had feared The nuclear dispute has been part of the larger political confrontation between the US and Iran since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 A final deal promises to transform a Middle East facing newer threats to stability such as the Islamic State which is casting Washington and Tehran on the same side It will not however resolve all outstanding disagreements between the two a fact borne out by the conflicts in Yemen or Syria for instance For both Rouhani and Obama the real challenge hereafter is to sell the deal to its opponents in Washington and Tehran While Rouhani will have to battle the Iranian hardliners Obama has the tougher job of convincing the Republicans America’s Arab allies and Israel — all extremely hostile to the deal He has been bold so far in constructing a new realistic approach to the Middle East India has done well to immediately welcome the deal It needs to support the process of rapprochement between the US and Iran which will also

end the third test and series in a draw (Source: Reuters) Top News All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has already accepted the contentious call by referee Romain Poite who overturned his original decision to award a potential match-winning penalty for the home side against the British and Irish Lions on Saturday With the scores locked at 15-15 and less than two minutes remaining Poite initially awarded the All Blacks a penalty when he deemed that replacement hooker Ken Owens was offside when one of his own players dropped a kickoff into his hands The penalty had it stood would have given Beauden Barrett a routine kick at goal from in front to both win the match and clinch the three-match series Poite however stopped the clock and decided to discuss the decision with his assistants Jerome Garces and Jaco Peyper as well as television official George Ayoub The discussion ended with the French official deciding that Owens was accidentally offside and awarded an attacking scrum to the All Blacks instead The Lions were then able to hold off a late New Zealand surge as the series ended 1-1 “It’s a tough game to ref and we all know what happened and we all know what should have happened” Hansen told reporters “And at the end of the day it’s a game and as little kids we’re taught that we have to live with it “We are accepting with whatever decisions were made It’s the decision the ref has made and we will live with it” Despite trying to avoid the question throughout his post-match news conference Hansen compared the decision to the 2015 Rugby World Cup quarter-final between Australia and Scotland The Wallabies were awarded a late penalty by referee Craig Joubert when he adjudged the ball to have touched a Scotland player in an offside position even though replays showed it had ricocheted off Australian scrumhalf Nick Phipps first Joubert did not consult the television official and Bernard Foley stepped up to slot the penalty that gave the Wallabies a 35-34 victory and a semi-final spot against Argentina “I go back to the World Cup and Scotland missed out because they didn’t use the video” Hansen said “This time they did and had a powwow” “What we would’ve liked is play on and we would’ve scored under the posts I’d have liked that” “His initial instincts were a penalty He spoke to his team and one of them said it was accidental” “We can’t change that If we scored another try we wouldn’t be having this discussion” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: September 25 2013 12:14 am Related News Merkel has won a
