Re: RTI brought marked decline in corruption in India: Study
Yep Deepak you are right.
Performance of SIC's have not been upto the mark, in fact in all the states. If it was one state one may attribute the failure to a particular individual SIC, but if it is a problem with all the states then definetly there is a problem with the system.
Also it is interesting to note here that different states are being ruled by different political parties, so the failure cannot be attributed to any one political party, they all are just the same.
Hence one can conclude that it was not a great idea to recruit SIC's from the CM's source.
Now we have two options:
1) To hope for a change in the system, whereby SIC's are recruited through a different and more appropriate source. An ideal thing to happen.
2) Alternately untill that happens Do a Chakde India:
In this movie the lead coach was given a team, inherent with the same set of problems as we are facing with the SIC's. The lead coach instead of complaining and changing the team made available to him by the government, motivated and got the work done from the same team, and went on to secure a gold medal for the nation. (A movie based on a factual story)
I wonder if RTI activists + Media can play the same role, by persisting with the same set of people made available to us, and make them understand that their positive role can make a huge difference to our nation, and that they have a larger and a very responsible role to play in the interest of the nation.
Maybe RTI activists can organize seminars/ events and invite SIC as a Chief Guest:
Make him feel comfortable and important which he no doubt is,
Make an emotional appeal to the SIC,
Play RTI song for SIC which Kariraji has posted on the forum,
and make SIC see through that he has a very very important role to play, and
His postive role can make a difference to the billions of my brothers and sisters who are Indians.
