Comments on: The way ahead for India‚Äôs “caged parrot” Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: Woman21 Thu, 16 May 2013 17:49:38 +0000 I think any emancipation of CBI will have to take into account it’s misuse by the Govt. Prime ministers right from Indira have used CBI to raid opponents to make them fall in line. Recent raid on DMK is latest such incident and pressures on Mayawati and Mulayam are well known. What we need is a police loyal to laws than politicians and answerable perhaps to a strong Human Rights body, consisting of eminent citizens of a state etc.

By: dipakkumardas Wed, 15 May 2013 16:17:09 +0000 the current hierarchy is too stringent and somewhat weird.
there is only one SP in a district and one MLA for a block.
a district has more than one block.
so technically SP has more authority.

but the constitution says that SP is below MLA, because SP is a civil servant and MLA is a civil representative.

the point is any changes in the hierarchy, needs changes in the constitution.

which what the govt. or the opp. would never agree upon.

moreover the damage done so far is irreparable. you can’t wash off your hands just because someone changed something on paper. corruption is deep rooted. and deep rooted wounds need time to cure, a very long time.
