The police and the common man?


The police and the common man? –Col. RD Singh

The recent spate of rape cases in Haryana, the ugly spat between the Punjab police chief and Capt Amrinder Singh, and Chandigarh SP caught red handed taking a bribe of one lac from a SHO, have again focused our attention on the declining state of the police force, and its politicization  The common man is losing faith in the force.  It is seen that the rich pay the police and get away. Where does the poor man go, when he is wronged?  He dreads to go to a police station as he has no faith.  He knows that first thing that the police man on duty will do is to talk rudely, perhaps slap him, make him wait endlessly, and then harass him for a bribe even to nab the culprits. If the culprits are caught, the police will make money from them also. What to talk of poor people, even educated people think twice before approaching the police. Some time back, there was a theft in a widow’s house in our area.  She complained to the police. The thief was not caught, but her life was made miserable. The police men would come to her house under the pretext of gathering details, plonk themselves, and demand ‘chai- pani’.  She got fed up. Thereafter, she never went near a police station, and rather approached a retired army officer who was her neighbor, for help.
I have horrifying memories of the police in my village when I was a young boy. The ‘thanedar’ would come to the village, tie up the suspected people to a tree, at will, and thrash them with a stick in full glare of the public. Then they would round up the cattle, and take these to the police station, depriving the family of livelihood. That was the British legacy of tyranny.  I thought, some day, things will improve. Not much has changed in terms of ruthlessness, corruption, and credibility of the police. Today, it is not only corrupt and ill trained, but highly politicised.  The Supreme Court’s long pending recommendations on police reforms be damned, as far as the politicians are concerned as it does not suit them.
Yes, the police has improved in terms of IT, and modern equipment, but the mind set remains the same. The first thing that a new CM of any state does is to appoint police chief of his choice, and thereafter use the state police to further his political agendas. The police also toe the line, as it helps them to make money, and wield undue authority in the name of the ruling politicians. The common man may have to run from pillar to post to file an FIR, but a large police force remains at the beck and call of VIPs. That makes the police not only corrupt but also results in neglect of their basic policing duties. So, you have crimes of all kinds galore.
The police is meant for the public and not politicians. The IPS officers have to give a lead, awaken their conscience, and stop being a stooge of political leaders. They are a chosen few and must live up to the esteemed name of the Indian police service.  What will happen – transfers, no ill gotten money?  Once they set a personal example of professional honesty, the other police men will follow. They must also improve their training and remain physically fit. Once they do it, their self esteem will improve, and the  police reforms would have begun by their very actions of propriety. Remember, a police man is also in uniform. He must keep its dignity. He can do it if he places people before self. Let’s see a change in the police for the ‘aam admi’, for a happy and healthy society.

Is Kejriwal’s focus misplaced!


Kejriwal’s focus misplaced! - An article by Col RD Singh
SIRSA NEWS ( www.SirsaNews.com )

Of course, Kejriwal has created a sensation by attacking  Sonia Gandhi  and exposing Robert Vadra for amassing easy property through the  benevolence of  DLF.  He has touched where it hurts most. The Congress party is ill at ease to guard Vadra and his sudden meteoric rise in his business venture. He seems to have had an easy way to real estate by virtue of being the son-in-law of the first family.  So far, no one dared to point a finger at Priyanka or her husband. The opposition parties were looking for juicy news about them all these years, but none came. Even Priyanka’s villa near Shimla (made and re made) was not highlighted. But, Kejriwal has done it, and the media is lapping it up. So far, so good.  But is that what the new party of Kejriwal will survive on – attack individuals and hate  Congress politics?  It will be similar to Pakistani politicians sustaining on hate India attitude, and claim J& K.  This is a negative and weak foundation for the rise of any nation or a new political party, for that matter.
 Kejriwal and his team have pitched  the aim of their new political party ( yet to be named)  “ to change the nature of politics” rather than winning elections. I think it is a non starter. The instruments of change in political agenda do not lie in attacking big wigs for corruption.  For a new political party to succeed, even to make a difference in the thinking of people, it is the masses who matter. Will masses support Kejriwal or vote for the old party candidates in the forthcoming elections, is the moot point.  In politics, you are counted only if you get votes. If  Kejriwal fails to win an election, then all his big talk will come to a naught. Because, it is the elected members  in the Parliament who govern the country in a democracy.  In case, Kejriwal wanted to only fight corruption without winning elections, then he should have stayed with Anna. It is not easy to combine a social movement with politics. It does not work that way in a heterogeneous country like ours where caste based politics dominates. 70 percent of the voters are very poor, and do not survive on moral lectures. Honesty and competence do not mean much to them. They may gather in thousands, as crowds, at the Ramlila Maidan, and shout slogans ( as you direct them), but when it comes to voting, it is a different scene all together. They want money and favours from the candidates.  So, when elections come, the politicians feed them with both. How will Kejriwal face this challenge? He can do neither.  
Now that Kejriwal has taken a leap into active politics, he has to learn the game. You can change the national politics only if you are in power, or at least in the Parliament  and state assemblies, in good numbers. He should look at the regional parties like the SP, BSP, INLD etc and analyse the mechanics of their functioning. Then, make a realistic strategy, and take support from other parties. He cannot fight in isolation, not in politics, may be as a social crusader.  
So, If  Kejriwal wants his party to succeed, and make a difference, then winning elections is a must. He should focus his energies and   go all out to win as many seats as possible in the Delhi assembly in 2013, and  2014 general elections. Then only, he can influence the quality of  national politics, and have a say in law making, including the Lokpal  Bill.
