Dated 3rd July 2004
His Excellency President of India Shri A. P. J. Kalam,
His Excellency Vice-President of India Shri Bharon Singh Shekhawat,
Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Dr. Man Mohan Sigh,
Hon’ble Home Minister of India Shri Shiv Raj Patil.
This has with reference to an Advertisement published in The Telegraph, English Daily Newspaper dated 12th
May 2003, by the PARLIAMENT OF INDIA, RAJYA SABHA, under caption "Information for General Public" about the right to petition
Parliament in a democracy
On 21st July, 2003 I sent a PETITION BEFORE PARLIAMMENT OF INDIA in two Volumes containing 503
Pages, to be examined by the Petition Committee with the draft of proposed Law "RIGHTS OF THE CITIZEN AND ACCOUNTABILITY OF PUBLIC SERVANTS ACT 2003", but
same was not considered admissible because of documentary evidences. Thereafter, on 11th August 2003, I submitted
fresh Petition, after complete changing from the previous one, to make it in accordance with the Rules.
Now, on 2nd July 2004 I received a letter from the Rajya Sabha Secretariat informing that "the issue raised by you in your petition were taken up with the Ministry of Home Affairs,
Govt. of India which has, inter alia clarified that there already exists the "Freedom of Information Act, 2002" which
purports to provide for freedom to every citizen to secure access to information under the control of public authorities,
consistent with public interest, in order to promote openness, transparency and accountability in administration and in relation
to matters concerned therewith or incidental thereto and, therefore, there is no necessary of the law proposed by you. In
view of this clarification received from the Ministry of Home Affairs, it has not been found possible to admit your petition."
This is my humble submissions that purpose of the Law proposed by me was totally different from "Freedom
of Information Act, 2002" to ensure protection of the public interests from any kind criminal misconducts by the Public Servants
holding high offices through Judicial scrutiny, where
any one is deprived of his rights of remedies or justice under direct or indirect Nexus between Politician(s), and / or Member(s)
of the Judicial Services and / or Bureaucrat(s) and / or Criminal element(s), or when "The State" ignoring the informations
provided to it in respect of such nexus, and / or failed or neglect to take appropriate actions in the matter of nexus, thus
citizen should be entitled to file a civil suit, for recovery of the damages caused by such Nexus.
Therefore, this is my Humble Submission that Your Excellencies should support a good cause in the larger
public interest by asking the Petition Committee to examine the proposed law, because Bureaucracy cannot take such a strong
decision to put the Bureaucracy itself under accountability net through Judicial scrutiny.
I am enclosing herewith the DRAFT of the Law proposed by me. The same is also posted with the Petition: http://milapchoraria.tripod.com/rajyasabha
