Democracy doesn’t just revolve around what happens once in five years but how rights of the citizens are protected and are allowed to hold power holders accountable. Statecraft which is the art and science of conducting the affairs of the state manifesting a machinery legally called government is often choked with multiple paralysis of corruption, nepotism, red tapism, etc. The three organs of the government -legislative, judiciary and the executive which is intended to deliver public service to the citizens are held under the hands of incompetent legislatures and corrupt bureaucrats who are intellectually dishonest. The state must respect the articulation of politics of ‘voice’ and not just the politics of vote.
The promise of democracy can only be realised through collective action and sense of dedication on the part of these three organs of the government.
Ever since the NDA/BJP government came into power in the state of Manipur, check on the records of various departmental examinations conducted during the previous government have been conducted with the formation of Special Investigation Team (SIT). But the SITs formed are incapable of producing a single element of truth despite many irregularities in almost all the departmental examinations.
The credibility of the SIT which was formed with the intention of serving the interest of the masses have been eroded over the monetary values paid to the  officers. Such anti-corruption drive gets dismantled even before the commencement of the drive.
The Scandalous MPSC :
Manipur Public Service Commission needs no introduction for it being known for various irregularities in every examination. The sanctity of this institution is often questioned for being a centre of allegation on corruption, question leakages, nepotism, mismanagement of examination, etc. MPSC which is intended to deliver the most humble services to the people of the state is caught with several apprehensions such as
1) Why not less than 2 candidates from the office bearer’s relatives often get through the final results every year?
2) Why in every examination one or the other issue arises?
In the MCS Examination 2016, there are several allegation charges of corruption on the part of office bearers and irregularities in the evaluation of answer scripts. One of the most classic example of lack of professionalism is the absence of signature of examiner which is seen in almost all the papers obtained through RTI.
Wrong tabulation of marks, different types of allotment of marks by a single examiner without his/her initials, etc. are some other examples that puts the institution’s allegiance into dark.
Doesn’t the Chief Minister’s so called SIT cover the MPSC or does it serve only for the departmental examination?
A clean and transparent system promised by the new government should start from the top as the BJP government in Gujarat and Assam have initiated CBI probe in all the State Civil Services examinations conducted since 2012.
Similarly, a strong and vibrant review of the institution’s endeavour in social responsibility by a non-caged parrot body like CBI must be initiated by the people’s CM. A precedent must be established so as to curb the menace of corruption and nepotism which is the kind of legacy adopted by the MPSC.
