Introduction of e-governance will bring transparency: Tarigami
Islamabad (Anantnag), July 10: Advocating for the framing of autonomous institutions in the State to deal with corruption at political, executive and judicial level, State Secretary CPI (M) and MLA, M Y Tarigami Sunday said the introduction of e-Governance would help in bringing transparency in the system.
“The corruption is deeply rooted at Political, Administrative and Executive level. The independent studies conducted by various agencies reveal that even our judiciary has been affected by it. So, the need of the hour is to prepare an effective law and form autonomous institutions which are beyond the whim of the government,” said Tarigami while interacting with the people here.
The interaction was part of campaign launched by the party against the corruption in the State and was aimed at suggesting measures and adopting mechanism to fight the menace.
Tarigami while suggesting for framing of a National Judicial Commission to make the judiciary accountable called for making the existing institutions functional.
“Though the Right to Information (RTI) Act is in place in the state, but the government is yet to appoint the two commissioners and the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) has not the powers to take any decision on his own,” said Tarigami.
Stressing on making the institutions effective, Tarigami expressed concern about the State Accountability Commission being headless and the Vigilance Commissioner not being appointed.
Tarigami while calling for effective Lok pal type legislation in the state assembly said all those holding any office of profit should be brought under its purview.
Stating that bringing e-Governance into the system can help in bringing down the graph of corruption in the state, Tarigami said, “It is an irony that even in this 21st century, we are adopting outdated techniques to maintain records. Our land records should have been at least computerized so as not to give any chance to corrupt officials in the revenue department to tamper with it”. He said by switching to e-governance there wouldn’t be any discrimination in allotting Below Poverty Line (BPL) cards to poor and deserving.
“The more the transparency the less the chances of corruption,” Tarigami added.
He said there were honest, conscious and intellectual people within the ranks of civil society too and their fight was not against government, but against corruption. “We have vowed to fight for implementation of effective legislation. The corrupt people are monsters and have the power to even make and change governments, but we should not feel disheartened and encourage those who dare to speak against the menace,” said Tarigami.
