Chandigarh , March 1, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

Congress MP and Spokesperson Manish Tewari has suggested setting up a permanent Standing Committee on the issue of Comprehensive Administrative Reforms in the country, saying this is an idea whose time has come.

In a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Tewari said, time has come for Parliament to set up a permanent Standing Committee on the issue of comprehensive Administrative Reforms, which should be headed by the Speaker or jointly with the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

He said, it should consist of 30 members just like any other Standing Committee of Parliament with the mandate to examine reports of both the previous administrative reform commissions, take evidence, hold broad based consultations with the experts and come up with detailed recommendations as to how India’s archaic administrative system can be holistically overhauled.

Tewari maintained, despite two Administrative Reforms Commissions set up earlier, there has been no attempt or effort in the past seven decades to reform the “colonial administrative paradigm bequeathed to us by our erstwhile Imperial Masters”. He said, governments irrespective of their political colour have been completely inept at taking any initiative in this regard.

At the same time, the MP cautioned, the government may strongly resist any such proposal to set up a permanent Standing Committee. Besides, he added, there is also a huge vested interest ably led by the bureaucracy that will go to any length to stymie any such effort.
