Women Security Top Agenda of Post-poll Policy Makers: Vittal
The New Indian Express; January 01, 2014
Chennai: De-criminalising politics and providing security for women will be the main focus in policy-making after the 2014 Lok Sabha  elections, said N Vittal, former Central Vigilance Commissioner, on Sunday.

Speaking at an event organised by Bharat Vikas Parishad here, he referred to the tremendous anger among people on all-round corruption and said the new government could be expected to come out with a strong anti-graft law and prevent criminals from entering parliament. In the social sector, he said women’s security could be guaranteed if the existing laws were implemented successfully.

Describing the approach of the Aam Aadmi party as rights-based one, he said Arvind Kejriwal typically exemplified it. However, he cautioned that the rights-oriented approach to good governance should not lead to selfishness. In his view, the vedantic-Hindu approach was the traditional approach where it is one’s duty to help others. “Next year we are going to witness a rights-oriented and traditional Hindu approach to politics and I think the latter will prevail,” said Vittal.

He blamed the Centre for not being pro-active in eliminating black money. An ordinance, suggested by late legal luminary Fali Nariman, vesting all funds in tax havens abroad with the Government, was the need of the hour, he added. “The old method of cheating people is out,” said Vittal and expressed hope that good governance will be the trend after the general elections.
