Exemption of political parties from FCRA violation buried many black history

By on Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Sorry! It has constrained me to write today that the big journalists of our country have put hostage their spirits before owners of organisation. The front page news is not given the preference because the journalism seems to be the work of mere chocolate men now.
Perhaps would you have known that the FCRA bill of political parties was passed without any hindrance of debate in parliament? This bill was not a short story, rather was a bill of selling spirit of country’s democracy.
Actually through this bill, the law of FCRA 2010 has been revised, which stops the funding by foreign companies to the political parties in India. While the government by revising the FCRA through the finance bill 2016 had eased to the parties the taking of foreign funds, but the recent revision shall give no chance to audit the foreign funding to the parties since 1976.
It is noticeable that the funding to the political parties since 1976 has got now the legality.
The revision of this bill confers retrospective effect in the language of law. Such revisions permission must be allowed in rare cases.
Why had to implement such rare provision eventually in the main subject of draft?
The NGO, Association for Democratic Reforms, filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court and in this writ petition ADR had claimed that the Union Government was doing the contempt of court.
Actually Delhi High Court had found that the BJP and Congress both parties had violated the FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act) by taking the donation from the Indian subsidiaries company Vedanta Resources Company established at Britain.
The section-4 of FCRA curbs the political parties or public delegates to take any donation from foreign. The Delhi high court had issued an order to election commission and Union Home Ministry to audit the accounts of, and take action against, both the BJP and the Congress within next 6 months.
The Delhi High Court contemplated on the intention of Union Government taking action on ADR writ petition in July 2017, the court asked why not government took any step in this matter. The government had contended before the court to let it be given times till 31st March 2018 to scrutiny the parties’ account.
The court had again allowed six weeks time to union government to take action in this matter on 8th October 2017, the scheduled time had lapsed in December 2017.
The question is here what the court committed subsequently. The response in this case was nil later, rather it emerged into an award which was given by Union Government on 8th March 2018 to Geeta Mittal, Acting Chief Justice, who was hearing this case with Justice C. Harishankar.
The award is not an ordinary; rather it is given on World Women’s Day for the contribution to the prowess of women, which is a highest respect in India.
Senior Advocate, Indira JaiSingh, had posed question through tweet over giving award to Justice Mittal. She had said, “The working judges accepted ever any award by the government—never! I hope that they have potential to reject it.”
She had raised question over the freedom of Judiciary and tweeted again ‘there are many ways to tarnish the freedom of judiciary – one of them are to give honour any working judge, especially to woman.’, but the award was bestowed to Justice Gita Mittal on 8th March eventually.
 ‘The country’s democracy is in danger’ the statement has been said in press conference held by 4 judges of Supreme Court of India on 12th January 2018, I ratify.
