Can Government hide behind technicalities?


In last two days, where Anna Hazare ji movement have got huge support, government have been trying to hide behind technicalities of governance and constitution. The official line of government is, "Though, they support the intention behind this battle against corruption, however, because of constitutional reasons, government can't allow any outside (other than legislature) member to draft the bill or be a member of committee which draft such Anti-corruption Bill" . They say that, "Government will welcome all suggestion during consultation process and inculcate those which are possible and agreeable to all"

This view was echoed by Congress media secretary Satyavrat Chaturvedi ji yesterday in a debate at Times Now where Kiran Bedi ji was also participant.

By saying this, government want to portray that they understand the situation however, because of constitutional reasons, they are not been able to assist and cooperate in this movement. This government response is utterly erroneous and deceptive and has been crafted by it's media advisors. Acceptance of this congress proposition means an end to quest for Anti-corruption Bill. Firsly, there would never be any consensus among political parties and they have been stretching the matter since last 40 odd years. Second, consultation and suggestion have no leagal compulsion for government to accept those suggestions and hence at the best suggestions will be found in the garbage while they will pass any Anti-corruption Bill.

================================================== ===
This thread is about discussion on this very facet of government argument and subsequently crafting judicious and untenable response to government argument and make government argument look like hypocritical.

At the instance, two example which are coming in my mind are - National Advisory Council and UIDIA.

None of these two organizations are constitutional, however, head of both these bodies have been given rank of cabinet minister and have brought under legislative framework.

1. As head of UIDIA and his team has been choosen from Industry (technical experts and professionals) to make a technological model for public delivery through unique identity In the similar way similarly joint committee for drafting and refining Jan Lokpall bill must be chosen from general public/academia/civil rights activist/social activists who are better equipped in crafting such legal framework for anti-corruption.

2. As NAC, is constituted among various experts of social/financial planning and academic field on similar lines how could joint committee for drafting anti-corruption Bill not be constituted amongst social and civil right activists on similar lines?

Same analogy of UIDIA and NAC must be applicable to drafting Anti-Corruption Law or Jan Lokpal Bill. By not accepting the demand, government is making its ignorance more visible.
