MISUSING POWER IS DAM­AG­ING TO THE COUN­TRY

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - MYINDIAMYVOTE -

Mark Tully has raised an im­por­tant is­sue in ‘The moot ques­tion: who’ll guard the guardians?’ (Nov 4) re­gard­ing the bla­tant mis­use of power by those at the helm of ad­min­is­tra­tive af­fairs. Politi­cians are of­ten not very well con­ver­sant with the finer points of gov­er­nance. Nei­ther elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives nor pub­lic ser­vants take care of the peo­ple. That’s when grid­locks oc­cur in de­vel­op­ment. To pre­vent a chaotic state of af­fairs, the govern­ment should not in­ter­fere with the au­ton­omy of its in­sti­tu­tions and the me­dia must ex­pose their wrong­do­ings when nec­es­sary.
