Reality Check India

A judicial blast from the past, Justice Ramaswamy case

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on October 18, 2009

While, the commotion over Justice P.D.Dinakaran’s elevation to the Supreme Court is still on. It would be fruitful to recall the first ever impeachment attempt of a Judge in Indian history. The Justice V Ramaswamy case in 1993. The readers of this blog should also be aware of the distance the Congress party went to defeat the motion.

Check out this paper : It is a suspense thriller. Our media’s newest heartthrob Mr Kapil Sibal plays a key role in the script.  http://www.judicialreforms.org/files/cover_story_ramaswami.pdf (Note: It is a PDF file)

The main players are still here. The same guys are on TV,on the streets, in parliament, making your laws.  Note how that in 1993, the BJP and the National Front were able to turn the  issue of corruption into a chicken game with the Congress.  Can the BJP do it today ? What changed ? When did they become wheeler dealers and make peace with scams a thousand times larger ?

    Corruption slows down development across the world. I think corruption can be stopped by replacing paper curreny with digital cash. What do you think?

      It is like during elections political parties get to rig so make use of EVMs and we know how it turned out, they can rig EVMs too.

      The need of the hour is to show basic values – country first, being honest, serving the needy etc before rising the flag and claiming the victory.
