admiration for India’s success in maintaining its democracy a standout example in a region dominated by variants of authoritarianism and a relative rarity in post-colonial Asia and Africa more generally By contrast Indians could and did change their governments through the ballot as they did in 1977 when Indian democracy faced its gravest peril I find it both odd and unfortunate that some of my more impatient fellow-citizens do not seem to realise the magnitude of India’s democratic achievement In the 1950s and 1960s the mainstream wisdom in the West was that democracy could not survive in India I always responded politely to the praise but having fought and won three Lok Sabha elections I also knew very well the chronic ailments gnawing away at the entrails of our system One of these is the still unaddressed issue of campaign financing The problem is endemic and it applies to almost all parties There are no easy solutions to a deeply rooted disease but there are palliatives A legal framework of partial state funding of election expenses is long overdue which if combined with the crowd-funding model of transparent verifiable small donations through the Internet can have a containing effect on the disease Share This Article Related Article India is fortunate to have a credible Election Commission that is free of partisan control and government interference This is again a rarity in developing countries and we must remember that our democracy is only six decades old After our first parliamentary elections were held in 1951-52 the then head of the EC Sukumar Sen received accolades from around the world Since the mid-1990s the EC has grown wings and become more assertive and activist even interventionist As a contestant in four Lok Sabha elections from West Bengal I remember how the former ruling party of West Bengal ran circles around the EC’s officials and especially the “observers” Despite the best of intentions they often remained just that — observers — as the then ruling party which had honed “rigging” into a fine art continued as usual with the connivance of a section of the police and the civil administration The methods were varied from outright intimidation to more insidious forms of fraud After the 2004 Lok Sabha elections the EC’s chief observer in West Bengal recommended that polling in all of the state’s 42 LS constituencies be held again so widespread and serious were the “irregularities” Unfortunately some of the practices that became routine during the 1977-2011 era in West Bengal have continued The good news is that the EC is wide awake to this and exerted every nerve and sinew to ensure that the 2016 assembly elections were as free and fair as possible In fact all political parties have a vested interest in a neutral and effective EC Cast aside by an unstoppable tide of “people power” exercised through the EVM five years ago and in further decline since then the party that ruled West Bengal with an iron fist from 1977 to 2011 seems to have belatedly realised this Its leaders now run like squealing children to the EC with complaints against the state’s post-2011 ruling party However no institution can be above scrutiny As supervisor and adjudicator of India’s democracy the EC needs to ensure that its conduct is above suspicion and that it is not influenced by pressures When the Indian National Army was in retreat from Northeastern India in 1944 after the battles around Imphal Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose sent his soldiers a message: “Never lose faith in India’s destiny” meaning the inevitability of freedom Since there is so much to be cynical about in our political life today let me paraphrase that to: Never lose faith in India’s democracy Our democratic edifice is

Service | Mumbai | Published: April 22 2017 4:09 am Top News The High Court Friday issued contempt notices against two officers of Mahim Police Station for allowing the use of loudspeakers within the station compound during Mahim Fair last year despite it being a silence zone The court has also directed the state government to inform what action it proposes to take against the officers A division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice A K Menon were hearing a contempt application filed by Awaaz Foundation that stated that the decibel readings on the first day of the fair December 13 2016 was much higher than the prescribed norm Police personnel who traditionally lead the first procession of the fair walk from Mahim police station to a dargah where they put a chaddar to honour the Sufi saint Makhdoom Ali Mahimi on his birthday Loudspeakers were allowed within the police station compound although it is a silence zone as a school is located in the vicinity “This is the fittest case to take action against the police officers in charge for allowing use of loudspeakers in violation of noise pollution rules” said Justice Oka adding that it was in gross violation of all previous court orders The government pleader tried to justify adding that the fair has been taking place since 1923 and appropriate action had been taken by the police to check the decibel levels during the festivals apart from seeking license for the use of loudspeakers The court said: “If the police itself allows such violations within the police compound it is a gross breach No one will be spared now The permission that was granted was not for the use of loudspeaker within the police station compound but to allow the procession to be taken through a particular route Such use of loudspeaker is prima facie breach of judgment of this court” “We direct the registry to issue a notice of contempt to assistant commissioner of police (Mahim division) Shilvan Dhovale and senior police inspector Mahim Milind Idekar” The court has granted the officers 15 days to file affidavits on the matter It has also sought a response from the government on the action it proposes to take against the police
