Opportunity at Hand to Tackle Corruption

The draft Lokpal Bill of the government will make for a poor mechanism to punish corruption. On the other hand, the text put out by the Anna Hazare team meets in substantial measure the requirements necessary for a body that can effectively tackle corruption in high places. However, while the government bill is on the spot in seeking to cover only corruption at the top, the Hazare text loses focus by attempting to deal with too many things - bribery, maladministration and misconduct. Where the NGO bill gets it right is in outlining the processes, powers and jurisdiction of the Lokpal. It should now be possible to work towards establishing a constitutionally valid, efficient, workable and sustainable legal mechanism to combat corruption.
