Working to improve 'rotten' system: Rahul Gandhi

Agencies
Tags : Rahul Gandhi, Supreme Court, Chief Justice of India, V R Krishna Iyer
Posted: Sun Apr 17 2011, 17:45 hrs

Rahul Gandhi has reacted sharply to former Supreme Court judge V R Krishna Iyer's letter accusing him of being "silent" on corruption, saying he is working to improve a "rotten system" instead of just complaining and has no intention of being glorified as a hero.
"..I work because I believe in working to improve a system that is rotten and not to be glorified," he said in response to a strongly worded letter from Iyer.

Gandhi also said, "As far as becoming a hero is concerned, unfortunately, that is of absolutely no interest to me."

Referring to the agitation by Anna Hazare on Lokpal Bill, 95-year-old Iyer in his April 9 letter said, "You (Gandhi) will become the hero if you take up the great challenge of transformation of India into an egalitarian society, a Gandhian India, a Nehruvian India, not nuclear India.

"Why should the Hazare phenomenon occur at all? Only because of so many evils and no actions from Delhi," he said on the anti-corruption campaign following Hazare's fast unto death.


Gandhi told Iyer that like most right-thinking Indians, he feels exactly the same way "as you do".

"I spend a lot of waking hours thinking and working to improve what I see as a rotten system. The difference is that I cannot get away simply with writing letters and complaining as you can. I am faced with the reality of changing things which requires much more than periodic release of emotion."

Iyer in his letter also strongly criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying he is "known for inaction". Gandhi's reply is silent on this reference.

"Corruption is rampant. If you are sensitive about people you must attack the big corrupt persons in power. Why are you silent?", Iyer asked Gandhi.

The former judge said, "You (Gandhi) are a young man and can rise to be a great nationalist, not by ambitiously aspiring to be Prime Minister because you are of the Nehru family. That would be anti-democratic and oligarchic".

Iyer said he respects Gandhi as he was the grandson of Nehru and had a word of advice. "Read his autobiography. Then you will realise what is socialism, patriotism and imprisonment in the struggle against British colonialism".

Gandhi reacted saying he had read Nehru's autobiography and would do so again as suggested.

"You have not gone to jail or been detained for a day for fighting socialist, secular causes in a country of communalism. Feroze Gandhi was great in his own right. So was your grandmother, the great Indira," Iyer said in his letter, a copy of which was made available to PTI here.

Iyer, in his reply today to Gandhi, said, "Forgive me if I have been bitter in my letter to you. I am too old and critical of parties CPI(M) and Congress for governmental delinquencies."

"When a former Chief Justice of India is freely accused of 'delinquent misconduct', there is no action and no response from the Prime Minister," Iyer said.

"You can call the rule as rotten government. A just assessment," the former judge said and called for a 'grand jury' of the highest authority with power to take on

corruption of every public authority.

"Parliament is wasting time and people's money. The Executive multiplies its income by universal corruption and bribery. The judicature, a sacred instrument with great powers to punish corruption, is itself corrupt. Not a single corrupt judge has been caught or punished," Iyer said.

I am glad at last he has realised he was wrong

Today after a ages atleast he has understood the importance and unsubstitutable requirement of the Gandhis in Indian Politics.

I am very happy for him .Subah ka bhoola agar shaam ko ghar laut aaye toh usko bhoola nahin kehte.I forgive him today for all the bad words he has used against the Gandhis ( specially Aunty Sonia ) .

Re: Working to improve 'rotten' system: Rahul Gandhi

Finally, Rahul has admitted publicly that his ancestors have bred and nurtured what has turned out to be a "rotten system". With this statement, he has vindicated the stand of the many people who feel that the Gandhis and Congress has only brought about the rot in the country and is responsible for holding back growth, and all the other ills that beset our society.

In short, Rahul is saying that he is looking for the ways to get out of the rotten politics and system that besiege our motherland. Maybe he wants another motherland where the system isn't so "rotten" because it hasn't been touched by the Congress and Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
