Government need not take this hit (Column: Spy's Eye)
A democratic regime runs on two important premises - first, that the predominant majority of citizens were law abiding people and the enforcement agencies could use this to their advantage and, secondly, that the political executive governing the nation should look strong but without letting the bureaucracy including the police behave like 'rulers', not public servants. The remarkable rise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 was very much due to his image as a leader who would deal with the corrupt with an iron hand and get his administrative machinery to focus totally on public delivery and development. Modi's policies in the spheres of international relations and safeguarding of India's strategic interests are extremely successful - and this includes the handling of that perpetual trouble spot in J&K, the Kashmir valley. But the approach to 'tightening the screws' on violators of law has apparently shifted from a meaningful effort to improve the working of enforcement agencies including the police, to merely providing harsher laws.
