taken to its logical conclusion by initiating more reforms.It is the sheer misfortune of this country that a decision that provides a direction to the country and determines it destiny is seen through a political prism Politics has become a 24-hour vocation for almost all the political parties Every step is evaluated in terms of personal and political gain Of course there are exceptions like Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar who chose to see it from a different perspective not allowing myopic oppositional politics to colour his views On the very next day after the demonetisation announcement Nitish supported the move The reason for his support was simple: Cleansing Indian polity of black influence I have earlier in various discussions in Parliament talked about the Mumbai blasts of 1993 And I have also highlighted that in the same year the NN Vohra Committee submitted its report The committee highlighted the problem of the criminalisation of politics and of the nexus among criminals politicians and bureaucrats in India It showed how this nefarious syndicate is destroying this country It pointed out that this syndicate draws its strength from black money The report was completely forgotten We should deliberate upon implementing its recommendations While we kept talking about curbing black money a new power-broking class like Ponty Chadha Matang Singh and Abhishek Verma and a host of political people who still hold important posts in different political parties has emerged Their sole interest is to generate black money on which to thrive These power brokers have permeated defence deals major policy decisions and even in the justice delivery system Demonetisation is an important but small step to check these trends To take it to its logical conclusion the government has to strike on benami property where most of the black money is invested Tough economic decisions are required to strengthen democracy Nitish’s decision to ban liquor — estimated to cause a revenue loss of thousands of crores — was to benefit the people at the bottom of the social pyramid And when this happens it strengthens the democratic ethos of the country In 2005 Bihar was written off by the leading publications of the world such as The Economist TIME and Newsweek It was declared as a hopeless case But the same Economist magazine in 2010 talked about its transformation and turnaround It was the result of some very strong legal and economic steps like speedy trials — wherein 90000 criminals where convicted in record time — and sounding the bugle against benami properties of corrupt government officials and politicians It is assumed that in a democracy strong steps cannot be taken with decisiveness And the long-held image of India as ‘soft state’ allows the corrupt and the thugs to turn audacious enough to openly endorse support and perpetrate wrong Today top economists are arguing that the current demonetisation might be problematic in the short run but it will be beneficial in the long Consider this: In Khairagarh Chattisgarh after 29 years people came out in the open to pay up tax worth Rs 50 lakh This is a story of a small district in Chattisgarh In Ranchi after demonetisation Rs 116 crore was deposited as municipal tax in one week against Rs 20 lakh a week in normal times A Congress member asked in Parliament as to what was so great about demonetisation It has happened earlier too Now consider this: In 1945 of a total Rs 1235 crore worth of currency Rs 143 crore (1157 percent) was demonetised In 1978 out of Rs 9512 crore Rs 146 crore (153 percent) was demonetised In the current exercise of the Rs 1641500 crore currency Rs 14 21539 crore (866 percent consisting of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations) has been demonetised This is huge and unprecedented In terms of the value of the currency it is a whopping 73656 percent more than the 1978 exercise In terms of the number of notes that need to be removed it is even more mind-boggling Against around 1000000 (give or take a few lakh) notes taken out in 1978 this time around 22560000000 (two thousand two hundred and fifty-six crore) pieces of currency will have to be taken out That is this time the effort is 2256000 percent larger Now the government should ascertain the impact of demonetisation on Naxal funding insurgency in Kashmir and the North East It needs to enquire as to what extent the reports of note-burning like the one reported from Kolkata are true and who these people are Information regarding this will justify the government’s move And in due course all efforts should be made to ensure that if we want to move towards a cashless economy the infrastructure to support this dream is put in place quickly Representational image Reuters What the Opposition should be doing now Now what should be the role of the Opposition in this case I think it should be of constructive deliberation Rather than blindly opposing demonetisation it is a moment when the Opposition should initiate a debate as to why in the last several decades in spite of all the serious talk on the issues of corruption and black money we failed to take any decisive steps In 1962 Lal Bahadur Shastri formed the Santhanam Committee to suggest ways to tackle corruption While one of its recommendations did result in the setting up of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) several other important recommendations were never debated seriously In the following years numerous committees were formed on the same issue and several reports on corruption and black money were submitted to the government but without any substantive outcome Corruption and black money was once a big issue But over the decades instead of sharpening the fight against corruption ironically it got normalised by the shameless acceptance of its inevitability In Jawaharlal Nehru’s first Cabinet a minister named Keshav Dev Malaviya had to resign because he was accused of taking Rs 10000 donation in elections Sankar Das in his biography of Nehru writes that in April 1963 certain charges of a minor nature were brought against KD Malaviya — a Central minister Nehru asked SR Das a Supreme Court judge to ascertain whether there was a prima facie case against Malaviya Nehru otherwise liked Malaviya because he had done useful work in helping develop oil prospecting in India Das’ enquiry was not conducted openly; it was held in camera However Das found that there was a prima facie case against Malaviya on two out of six charges Malaviya resigned This sort of aversion to corrupt practices has dissipated largely It is an indisputable fact that black money is the direct outcome of corruption and there is a symbiotic relation between the two In the past 40 years since the time I started observing social and political developments the base and impact of black money has increased manifold As members of the Opposition we need to look up how many committees were formed to check corruption and black money in last few decades and question why no steps were taken to implement their recommendations We need to ask if the governments till now were only interested in forming committees The World Bank has put the extent of India’s parallel economy at roughly 20 percent of its gross domestic product (GDP) The 2014 and 2009 Lok Sabha elections were evidently fought with black money People like Baba Ramdev Ram Jethmalani and Professor R Vaidyanathan were vocal about this? Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the operational activities of the strategic Gwadar Port, Amitabh the don challenges brother and policeman Shashi Kapoor when the latter asks him to sign the surrender document.
