violation of fundamental rights
is alleged that the top criminals are often protected by powerful politicians.
It is the political will which is necessary to reduce criminal activity
and arrest the offenders. Giving this short of blank power to our unscrupulous
law enforcers will certainly encourage abusing the law. The government
must rethink before giving effect to this decision as it will limit the
peoples' constitutional right.
to frank admission
Police is under the direct control of the Home Ministry. So, when the two top most people concerned contradict each other, who should we believe? We all are aware of the prevailing law and order of the country. All shorts of crimes are rising day by day and we the general people are getting used to it. But recently, one more crime has been added to the list, kidnapping and snatching by the law enforcers. Over the last few days, a good number of allegations have been reported in the news papers. Some of the police members are arresting people for realising money. This is quite alarming. When the law enforcers, who are supposed to nab the criminal, also join them, where should the people go?
don't think the Ministry is not aware of these incidents. But have it
taken any step to stop these and bring the perpetrators to book? For some
unruly member, the whole police department is loosing its image. I believe
there are many honest and efficient officers in our police force. It should
be wise for the govt to let the police work independently. And I sincerely
believe, if the police are allowed to work freely without any political
interference, they will perform better. So I urge the govt not to use
the police for political purpose.
