Finally, he said. That can happen in cricket. The fact is that this very board gets many privileges and remains a secretive body,such as the PAC and the CBI? There is something deeply disconcerting about this for two reasons Why does a JPC undermine existing institutions At the very least it does not do it any more than new institutions like the National Advisory Council undermine line ministries Does it do it any more than a handpicked single-judge inquiry does it The institutional argument has become a disingenuous game; mere references to it are designed to undermine institutions The references to the CBI are also disconcerting It is time to ask the government what steps it has taken to restore the credibility of the CBI in the eyes of the public There is not even a glimmer of acknowledgement that citizens are deeply worried about the CBI There is not even the slightest concession to the fact that almost every single institution in government now carries an odour of conspiracy Our law enforcement institutions are beginning to resemble an indiscriminate melange of arbitrary powersrandomly exercised What is frightening about the Indian state is that evidence has no sanctityarbitrary leaks have become the normofficers routinely provide a running commentary to plant insinuationsany line of investigation is accompanied by indiscriminate fishing expeditionsand no one seems to acknowledge that citizens have basic rights The appeal to the CBI would be more credible if the government had spent the last few years restoring probity to the functioning of these institutions It is often said that a measure of corruption is not just the exchange of money It is the distance and dissimulation rulers exhibit in relation to their own governments On that measure we have indeed reached a low point The fourth element in this rhetorical strategy is to hide behind the poor or worse stillallow other Congress leaders to flirt with the communal card The Congress leadership has to get over the idea that just because it has promulgated a few schemes for the poorit can be absolved of the larger structural crisis they have produced in the economy Even within the terms of their own paradigmhow do they explain that a pro-poor government is now embedded in a nexus of regulatory arbitrariness that has benefited some corporations at the expense often of honest and genuine small business What pro-poor policy can explain that it has become nearly impossible to be an honest businessman in this country The Congress president is insulting the country by implicitly suggesting that the sense of moral crisis and betrayal large numbers of citizens feel is entirely a product of opposition politics She was right to point out that the Congress has at least asked some individuals to resign; the BJP cannot even claim that high moral ground But she has to acknowledge that in the current climate those resignations are being seen largely as politically protective measuresdesigned to absolve the government of responsibility rather than fix it And she has not even begun to probe the deeper question: what is the responsibility of the leadership when the country sinks to an unprecedented low As for the prime minister: his worst failing may not be corruptionit may not even be standing idly by His worst failing will be that by not coming clean he has undermined any reason to trust so-called good men The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhi express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News In its proposal to the administration, It was in 2010 that Singh learned that his lawyer had moved an application on his behalf that the enhanced compensation be scaled down.

is proposing to give access to certain websites for free to anybody with a phone that has a data connection Related News The key thing that should concern all of us this week about the internet is net neutrality Here is a brief statement of things the way they are no technical mumbo jumbo no scholarly interpretations The internet as we understand it is built on a foundational principle of not discriminating against the information and traffic that flows through it As long as information is coded according to established standards the computational structures will allow for its flow without any obstacles hurdles or interventions Thus whether you see a movie or surf a website or send messages over VoIP services the internet service provider (ISP) does not get to decide which of this information is useful or important and has to distribute the network resources to equally circulate this traffic This is net neutrality A bunch of ISPs and telecom companies are now trying to take away this basic idea which led to the emergence and growth of the global internet They argue that they want to do it so that they can provide better services for more meaningful uses of the internet by devoting resources to differential and preferential access to information In other words they want to control what content is accessed at what speeds and want to charge premium sums from users as well as corporations to have dedicated high-speed access routes for that information So if you want to share a picture of your child taking her first steps you might have to wait till non-peaNet

news Indian expressk hour traffic for it to be uploaded to your social network because the ISPs might determine that this is not valuable or important information and hence can wait till after other more critical traffic flows through They further argue that doing away with net neutrality will mean free access for the poor An easy example is Facebook’s Internetorg which is proposing to give access to certain websites for free to anybody with a phone that has a data connection It sounds good on the surface but what it ignores is that these tie-ups between cellphone companies and ISPs basically tell this billion-plus market that to be online is to be on Facebook They can share pictures of cute cats interact with their friends and stalk their school mates and colleagues for free but for everything else that they want to do they might have to pay Not only do they want to determine what information is important they also want to control where you will be able to access it thus creating non-negotiable monopolies Net neutrality as a principle is the one thing that is stopping these nexuses from taking over our digital lives It stops these profit-driven entities from using social inclusion and justice as a premise to override the fundamental freedom of the Web which allows for various voices to exist without interference If they do get their way chances are that you might never be able to read this article for free because they can deem it unimportant or just something they didn’t like to read with their breakfast In the name of preferential traffic shaping they can make voices invisible What can we do about it Net neutrality is tricky and there are multiple battles to be fought to defend it Like all battles we need help from every corner The committee that has been set up by the government of India to decide on the future of net neutrality is seeking public comments at http://mygovin It has more than 55000 submissions already asking to save the internet but the committee needs to hear more Anyone who thinks that the internet needs to be free should take these last few days — the consultation ends on August 20 — to be heard We spend a lot of our time lamenting about how our governments don’t listen to us However if the state makes the effort of asking for our voices we need to use the power of the internet to ensure that we are heard If net neutrality is not upheld this might be the last time we are able to voice our opinions on the internet for free The writer a professor of new media is co-founder of the Centre for Internet & Society
