In Today‟s Indian politics most of the criminals are in power, irrespective whether they are ministers or MPs or MLAs. So long as their party is in power, they can commit any murder, Dacoity or any other illegal or immoral act, they will not be punished. On the Contray, the Police who should be putting these people behind the Bars,act as their Security guards. CBI, is now very well known as an extension of the ruling Govt. They are no more independent and with the kind of political culture in our country, it is being used to target the opposition leaders and their act while they were in Govt. Since one party Govt. for the country looks a distant dream, this Newton‟s third law of Motion will be repeated every time. Same goes for other enforcement agencies. „Neta ho ya Abhineta, if he or she is guilty, the deserved punishment, should be given and they be put behind the Bars.‟ We have hardly seen any Politician being punished by law. Rather even if they have warrant against them, they will be found in parliament. The Northeast region has critical strategic significance and, as is often remarked, remains tenuously connected with the rest of India through a narrow corridor, the „chicken‟s neck‟ or „Shiliguri Corridor‟, in North Bengal, with an approximate width of 33 kilometres on the eastern side and 21 kilometres on the western side.7 This constitutes barely one per cent of the boundaries of the region, while the remaining over 99 per cent of its borders are international – with China to the North; Bangladesh to the South West; Bhutan to the North West; and Myanmar to the East. Widespread conflict marks the region, and Assam, Manipur, Nagaland and Tripura are severely disturbed In addition, the Tirap and Changlang districts of Arunachal Pradesh witness the spillover effect of insurgencies from the neighboring States, particularly Nagaland, Assam and Manipur. Meghalaya also grapples with political uncertainties and problems. Mizoram has remained largely free from terrorist violence since the political resolution of the insurgency in this State in 1986, but the activities of the Bru National Liberation Front (BNLF) have given cause for concern, and have inflicted some civilian and security force (SF) casualties. Today the Indian minds understand the paralysis of the Indian justice system. This paralysis obstructs all attempts for greater social mobility and change within Indian society. While public consciousness of rights has grown enormously, the justice system obstructs popular aspirations. The failed justice system keeps India fragmented and in a constant battle against anarchy. India's judicial system is today obsolete and grossly unfair to majority of the population. The fact is that North-East region is still striving with many socio-economic challenges. Superstitions, violations of Human right, Nepotism, social conflict, ethnic imbalance, frequently created disturbance to the region. The region is in turmoil. It was shortly followed by the Chinese takeover of Tibet, Pak actions
in border line and the increasing „hardening‟ of the previously „soft borders‟ with Burma/Myanmar, sealing off the region in the Easterly direction as well. Illegal migration of Bangladeshi nationals into India and the use of Bangladeshi, Bhutanese and Burmese territory by insurgents operating in India‟s North East are a grave security concern for the reg ion. Whatever may be the source of this migration, it seems that it is gradually leading to a significant change in the demographic character of the affected areas. Available data from the Assam districts of Cachar, Karimganj and Hailakandi show that there has been a significant rise in the Muslim composition in these areas,along with other 10 distrcts.” said the report. “A few aspects of the insurgent problem in the region may, at this point in time, require only a close monitoring. These are areas that have strong political undercurrents and would, therefore, require careful handling. Nevertheless the serious security implication of these issues would require more than adequate attention to these areas. ”Circumstances in the theatres of conflict in India‟s Northeast go against the general presumption of a direct and self-evident conflict of interests between the government and its various agencies, on the one hand, and the terrorist groupings, on the other. A complex collusive arrangement between various legitimate power elites and terrorist groupings exists in every single terrorism-affected State, and this arrangement facilitates a continuous transfer of resources into the „underground economy of terrorism‟. In contrast to the common perception of terrorist activity as violent confrontation with the government, there is a more insidious subversion of the established order through a consensual regime against a backdrop of widespread breakdown of law and order, and terrorist groupings have demonstrated their preference to wards „systemic corruption‟, rather than the dismantling or destruction of the prevailing political order.Our so-called leaders do not think twice about the harmony of the country when it comes to grinding their axe. Playing vote-bank politics, they have always tried to create animosity between different religions. We should strive to maintain the relationship of common brotherhood. We are normally peace loving citizens who do not base our relations on caste or creed, poor or rich. It is only the Politicians and Political parties which divide us on these lines to garner Votes which in turn make them incharge of finances to meet their goals to become powerful. Each election passes, but we remain the same or rather our condition remains the same. Complete fulfillment of our basic needs – Power, Water, Roads, etc are still in the red tape. As stated above, the accountability of constituency funds should be made on regular basis. We part with our one third of the Income as Income Tax which is supposed to be meant for development of the country but we hardly find it being used for betterment of the country. The Panchayat elections are also turned into battles for power and the riots, fights take place leading to killing of some persons. The reason- there is a big budget fixed for per panchayat per year.
Like Govt. funds, here again there is no accountability. Here we see how government promises but failed to kept. There is a vast difference between theory and practice. Even the best of isolated efforts will not bear fruit unless they are part of an overall, well-considered approach, and responsibilities of all stakeholders are clearly spelt out and accountability and sustainability factored in. We should uphold the torch of unity irrespective of our different faiths and creeds. Ultimately, strengthening the National Integrity System promotes better governance across all aspects of a society and contributes to a more just society overall. If have to serve, we can to try to change the ongoing disaster in the political system, if without being a part of political system directly too. We can find one or the other thing which needs improvement in our vicinity and if we have will and money, we can do of our own. Remember Public is the boss in a democracy where it comes in attitude. As “yeh public hai bhai,public hai, sab jante hai.” We must be careful in casting our votes. Choice of qualified and motivational leadership is most essential. Public must be aware of own potentialities and should push and compel the government for finding immediate implementations of solutions to restrain from the instability of the region. Before that the government should polish own mind and must be in a mood to clean own ground first. Important to think is that who will ring the bell to Cat‟s neck? ………………………………………………………………………………………………………
