India’s Supreme Court Blasts Government,Reveals India’s Investigative Agencies are Mere Puppets

1 Comment

The low level of trust in the Indian government’s investigative and vigilance agencies was revealed when India’s Highest Court,the Supreme Court of India blasted the government for its choice of the Central Vigilance Commissioner.India has been rocked by a series of Housing Loan,Telecom and Land Scams recently implicating top politicians,bureaucrats and even army generals and admirals.However no one expects anyone significant to be prosecuted as the prosecutors themselves are compromised.It is openly known that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is totally controlled by the ruling party at the centre.The Income Tax and Enforcement Directorate also serves as puppets of the government being selectively used against opposition politicians and businessmen.

Pressure building on CVC, SC asks can he be objective in 2G probe? – IE

Just eight days after the Supreme Court questioned Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) P J Thomas’s eligibility to function objectively as the country’s anti-corruption chief, the apex court today expressed reservations about having Thomas “supervise” the CBI investigation into the 2G spectrum allocation case.

“The CVC happened to be the Telecom Secretary at a given point of time when communications were sent to A, B, C, D. It would be quite difficult for him to be objective about supervising the investigation,” a Bench of Justice G S Singhvi and Justice A K Ganguly, which is hearing the spectrum case, remarked.

The Supreme Court has directed the CBI to conduct the investigation of the 2G Telecom Scam under its supervision betraying the total lack of trust in India’s premier investigative agency.The CVC choice has been highly controversial with the new person appointed to the job implicated in a scam of his own and also being associated with the Telecom Ministry which is the central party involved in the 2G Scandal.The Indian Government has come under corruption fire from all sides with the Parliament stalled due to Opposition demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC).The Nira Radia Wire Tap revealed the extent of corruption prevalent in India with Big Business virtually taking over the Government influencing their choice of ministers,policies and regulations.It remains to be seen whether something comes out as a result of the exposure of these scandals or they just remain in a long line of unsolved corruption scams .
