"The state government in 1992 had published a white paper on the condition of Sri Jagannth temple after certain stone fell from it.” he said. the possibility that this might push us down the pathway of democratic autocracy on the other.That our institutions have corroded is without doubt The executive branch is paralysed Our bureaucrats “refuse” to sign files More accurately they deem it safer to do nothing than to do something The reasons for this attitude are rational and understandable The CVC CBI and the CAG have collectively hung the sword of Damocles of vigilance over their necks There is no statute of limitation and these bodies have the statutory authority to put any official under scrutiny including those who have long retired CB Bhave for instance left the IAS long ago He embodied the best qualities of the civil service and was well regarded for his integrity performance and commitment Yet today his name figures in an inquiry There are approximately 600 officials in the rank of joint secretary and above and of these 122 are currently the subject of scrutiny The legal raison d’etre for such vigilantism is the Prevention of Corruption Act which requires bureaucrats associated with decisions benefiting the private sector to establish that they did not personally benefit from such a decision The act presumes in other words their “guilt” until “innocence” has been established It is scant wonder therefore for bureaucrats to deem the “act of omission” to be more prudent than the “act of commission” The prime minister and finance minister have tried hard over the past year to repair the economic damage caused by the 2G scam coal allocation controversy and red tape They have failed in large part because of this attitude The new government will be equally unsuccessful if it fails to safeguard the civil service from the slings and arrows of unsubstantiated charge and “gotcha journalism” It is important to point out that the blame for this policy paralysis should not be placed only on the doorsteps of the vigilance commissions They are after all staffed by civil servants who are fulfilling their mandate of responsibility The blame should also be placed on the institutional vacuum that has encouraged the enactment of such a counterproductive act The legislative arm of the Government has become equally moribund The 15th Lok Sabha which has just been dissolved has had the worst performance of any Lok Sabha since Independence It enacted only 150 of the 380 bills placed on the agenda Parliamentarians transacted business for 61 per cent of the time allocated for the purpose and in its last winter session it set a new record for truancy by sitting for 8 per cent of the allocated time Notwithstanding this parliamentarians made sure they received their full allowance and also a pay hike The third pillar of our governance structure is the judiciary It has served as a strong and positive check against arbitrary and wilful misuse of powers It has held everyone accountable to the law and those who have thought they are above it have been sharply cut to size Some high and mighty individuals are currently languishing behind bars This said there is such a backlog of cases that justice is delayed and often denied Most people can no longer expect to receive timely redress on matters related to property tax defamation and privacy They can no longer look upon the judiciary as a bulwark of support for their constitutional rights The media has been billed the fourth estate It has for long been commended for its autonomy and vibrancy It deserves credit for example for focusing public attention on the corrupt practices of politicians and business Today however the media appears to have lost its edge It is no longer providing high quality and in-depth commentary or coverage and it is no longer perceived to be independent Instead it is now seen as an instrument of political and business vested interests The armed services are arguably the most respected institution in the country It has acquired such respect because of its scrupulous avoidance of politics It has always remained above the civilian fray Today however there are signals to suggest a shift in this hands-off attitude Many former generals and admirals have in the wake of the naval accidents for instance vociferously criticised the defence ministry Their statements would suggest a strong undercurrent of resentment towards the civil service As it is the armed services have always chafed at the fact that they rank below officers of the IAS A further twist is the nomination of the controversial former army chief to fight the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections on a BJP ticket from Ghaziabad In and of itself this is not remarkable Many ex-servicemen have entered politics But this chief has been embroiled in unusual controversy and he has been particularly sharp about the civil service It will be interesting to see how he runs his campaign and in particular what he says to the reportedly 50000 ex-jawans in his constituency It would be worrying if he put the blame for deteriorating security on the civilian administration This because such venting of frustration by ex-servicemen could well imbalance the longstanding institutional modus vivendi between the services and the civilians Two faces dominate the campaign posters One of them may become prime minister The concern is he will become presidential if nothing is done to strengthen the checks and balances embodied in the Constitution It is to address this concern that a discussion on institutions and governance should be encouraged The writer is chairman Brookings India and senior fellow Brookings Institution For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

major blow to Nigeria’s Boko Haram Islamists killing around 100 fighters and freeing 900 hostages in a three-day operation last week The claim which could not be independently confirmed comes on the heels of twin suicide attacks the previous day in the far north of Cameroon an area repeatedly targeted by the jihadists At least six people died in the attacks according to a new toll "A special clean-up operation from 26 to 28November " against Boko Haram in the border area with Nigeria "neutralised more than 100 jihadists" Defence Minister Joseph Beti Assomo said in a statement broadcast on national radio The sweep enabled troops "to release almost 900 hostages seize large supplies of arms and munitions as well as black-and-white Islamic State flags" the statement added without providing details on the identities of those freed Representational image Reuters Boko Haram swore allegiance to IS in March 2015 The minister attributed the success of the raid to cooperation between Cameroon security forces a new multinational force being set up to fight Boko Haram and Nigeria’s army No independent confirmation of the statement was immediately available from the region which is unaccessible to the media Some security sources reached by telephone confirmed that the raid took place but were unable to confirm the figures released in the government statement Since July

radical Sunni jihadist group Boko Haram which is seeking to create a hardline Islamic state in northeast Nigeria Over the past year Boko Haram has stepped up cross-border attacks in Niger Chad and Cameroon while also continuing to mount shooting and suicide assaults on markets mosques and other mostly civilian targets within Nigeria itself For many years there was little to no surveillance of the border with Nigeria by Cameroon enabling the jihadists to use the remote region as a rear base to stock its weapons vehicles and supplies But Cameroon which is part of a regional coalition helping
