safeguard them from victimisation Related News With suspicious attacks on whistleblowers the Vyapam scam has highlighted the vulnerability of those who show truth to power The string of corruption scandals that have surfaced in the last three months have established what many believe — in a country the size and diversity of India it is impossible for a centralised mechanism to control corruption to succeed The “na khaunga na khane dunga” mantra based on a Big Brother approach with some high offices keeping a watch on the activities of all others cannot be relied upon to effectively contain the malaise of corruption Unless proper institutions and systems are put in place to empower those who expose wro-ngdoing by offering them protection and ensuring that their complaints are effecti-vely investigated and acted upon a mere change of regime will not lead to abatement in corruption Though the monsoon session of Parliament was a washout due to political parties protesting corrupt leaders there has unfortunately been little protest against the non-implementation and proposed dilution of critical anti-corruption laws passed more than a year ago — the Whistle Blowers Protection (WBP) Act 2011 and the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act 2013 The WBP Act which received the president’s assent in May 2014 aims to encourage whistleblowing by providing mechanisms to protect whistleblowers and safeguard them from victimisation Under the law if a whistleblower is victimised she can file a complaint to the competent authority (CA) who has powers to take necessary action to prevent victimisation and issue binding orders If the WBP law was operational a whistleblower like Anand Rai in the Vyapam scam who has been recently shunted to a tribal district by the Madhya Pradesh government following a complaint filed by him to the CBI and has allegedly been receiving threats to his life could have sought redress and been afforded protection under the law Similarly the law could have provided protection to those rendering assistance in the investigation when they faced threats and attacks like the two former deans of the medical college in Jabalpur who were found dead under suspicious circumstances Under the law the CA is empowered to issue directions to the concerned government authorities including the police to provide protection Instead of promulgating effective rules to operationalise the act the government has moved an amendment in Parliament that seeks to remove the safeguards available to whistleblowers from prosecution under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) if they make a disclosure under the WBP Act The amendment also forbids disclosure of many categories of information in a whistleblower complaint like information related to the integrity security strategic scientific or economic interests of the state or information that relates to commercial confidence unless information has been obtained under the RTI If the CA receives a disclosure containing information on any of the subjects mentioned in the bill then the disclosure will not be looked into and the person making such a disclosure will also not be protected under the act The threat of stringent penalties for the violation of the OSA would deter bonafide whistleblowers from coming forward Further these amendments completely ignore the predicament of government servants who come across evidence of wrongdoing in the normal course of their work and have access to information without using the RTI The amendments render the WBP Act useless for people like Satyendra Dubey and Manjunath who blew the whistle on corruption they encountered during the course of their work The amendment has been passed by the Lok Sabha and is currently pending in the Upper House The choice of the investigating agency responsible for looking into the Vyapam scam has also been a topic of raging controversy — the Madhya Pradesh chief minister faced tremendous flak for initially not allowing the case to be investigated by the CBI It is a shame that this is happening in the backdrop of the non-implementation of the Lokpal law for over a year and a half — a law passed after a huge public outcry and which provides for independent and empowered Lokpal and Lokayuktas to investigate cases of corruption Ironically the Narendra Modi government which claims to be committed to fighting corruption has introduced a 10-page amendment in Parliament that aims to dilute provisions of the Lokpal act Currently the law requires all public servants covered under the Lokpal to declare the assets of their spouse and dependent children in addition to their own assets The proposed amendments do away with a common standard of disclosure exempting bureaucrats from disclosing assets of their spouse and children if held independently This is a blow to the anti-corruption law as illegally amassed assets are often held in the name of family members The commitment of the government and various political parties to fight corruption will be judged not by loud rhetorical claims and counter-claims of corruption but by the stand they take on these two critical laws

pm When Indians travel abroad they have got into a habit of having a subway sandwich (Source: File Photo) Related News From air conditioning and water to diet and yoga India’s champion shuttlers at the World Championship are an obsessively conscientious group The focus and care on setting the minutest even seemingly trivial aspect right border on the maniacal understated reasons that have contributed to their comeuppance in the last few years The first things they do after landing on their latest port of conquest is picking the local SIM card and a massive carton of bottled water stocked to last the tournament week Whether travelling to chillier climes of Europe or north China or the Asian cauldrons the first step upon entering the hotel room is switching off the A/C or regulating it to as close to natural temperatures as possible The occasional respiratory clogging that can happen owing to air conditioning is too big a risk to take While travelling physios coaches and trainers have been laying down rules for years now it is only for the last few seasons that the extremely fit band of shuttlers have bought into some simple but strict dos and donts The occasional indulgence earns the cold glares of the support staff and a rare lashing out though most have fallen in line now So when travelling through Europe the stocked cheese cubes in hotels are on a ‘do not touch’ list as is anything raw that could be preserved long and isn’t fresh However the whole team has gotten into the habit of munching a basic chicken Subway within two hours of finishing the match The biggest challenge of winning a badminton tournament often comes off court: in recovering from a stiff grind and getting ready for the next days match While icebaths and contact baths as well as stretching / yoga is common in training recovery assumes all the importance in match week Eating right is mandatory While most are advised to wrap up a full breakfast by 8 players munch on a small energy pocket source like select fruit half an hour before the match Most are advised to stick to Indian food – something they are used to though both rice portions and numbers of rotis are closely monitored Anything heavy on the stomach that won’t be digested soon is avoided While PV Sindhu reared by athlete parents always known to eat right coach Gopichand and physio Kiran C often chaperone her meals ensuring she eats only those things that will add to her strength Street food is strictly avoided as tempting as it might be during tournaments “We insist in Europe at least that they always eat warm food and nothing that’s been stored or off the streets” physio Johnson Solomon says For Kiran and his three other colleagues tournament week could start at 530 and end at 1130 in the night tending to weary bodies and stretching them back into shape Patching up the bodies after a three setter in anticipation of an early match next day especially as it gets tougher as the finals near
