Rajasthan Protection of Corruption Act

Smt. Vasundhara Raje,
Chief Minister, Rajasthan.
This is a request to drop the proposal to amend the Criminal Procedure Code and the Indian Penal Code. It is unfortunate that your government is actively proposing dumping Article 14 of our constitution which guarantees equality before law.
There is widespread corruption and nepotism amongst our public servants and this is also the general impression amongst citizens. In this situation to insulate them even from investigation upto 180 days is an invitation to more wrongdoing, corrupt acts and oppression of citizens. The fundamental premise is that all crimes shall be reported to the police who are duty bound to investigate them. It has been claimed that investigations by your police is harassing the honest public servant. If this is the plight of your public servants please take corrective action in the police department, since the harassment and oppression faced by the poor citizen will be far higher. Very few deterrents are there for the powerful criminals, and this move will give a façade of legality to allow the guilty adequate time to destroy and tamper with evidence and witnesses.
The move to threaten the media with imprisonment is still worse and is a frontal attack on the freedom of expression.
WE THE PEOPLE appeal to you to display your wisdom and drop this bill. It will be a victory for citizens and the rule of law. Citizens will give you credit and gratitude in return.
