appointed Maharashtra Lokayukta M L Tahaliyani is set to make a detailed proposal to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for amendments to the Lokayukta Act In 1971 Maharashtra became the first state in the country to enact the Lokayukta Act With limited tools to combat corruption the institution found it difficult to keep pace with evolving times an issue Tahaliyani is set to tackle Among amendments he is likely to propose are steps to make suggestions of the Lokayukta and the Upa-Lokayukta binding on the competent authority Share This Article Related Article “Circumstances have changed as 40 years have passed from the time the law was enacted An amendment therefore is required” explains Tahaliyani who before assuming office as the state’s 10th Lokayukta served a judge in the Bombay High Court The Lokayukta is “optimistic” given the government is keen to help him Chief Minister Fadnavis when he was an Opposition legislator in the previous Assembly had brought a private member bill in the legislature for amending the Lokaykta Act “I am confident he (Fadnavis) will help the Lokayukta” Tahaliyani had said The existing set up does not discourage Tahaliyani Soon after he assumed office he found two of his own men guilty of “dereliction of duty” and suspended them an action not commonly heard of “Prima facie they (an officer and a clerk) were found guilty of dereliction of duty but a departmental inquiry into misappropriation is being proposed If guilty we may get an FIR lodged” he says A chargesheet is also being prepared The institution has also taken up suo motu cases Tahaliyani expressed concern over citizens indulging in corruption Recently he sought reports in cases including one pertaining to illegalities in construction of the Mazgaon Court building currently in a very poor condition “We will check whether or not public servants are guilty of negligence or lack of supervision” he says Secondly the Mumbai Municipal Commissioner has been asked to give a report on allegations of irregularities in the desilting of drains before 2015 monsoon Contractors were reported to have forged documents and provided fake bills for desilting works Before his appointment the office of the Maharashtra Lokayukta was vacant for 10 months Asked whether issues during that period such as the irrigation scam could be a matter of investigation for his office Tahaliyani said there was no need to “unnecessarily interfere” if a competent authority such as the ACB was investigating Despite the institution’s efforts to bring down cases 4382 cases are pending in the Lokayukta “Although a chunk of pending cases has been cleared there is an increasing number of cases filed on a daily basis” he says According to Lokayukta’s estimates 500 new cases are filed every month mostly allegations of corruption and grievances Tahaliyani is also apprehensive of those who may use the Lokayukta as a platform to get own interests served “We have to be wary of blackmailers” Tahaliyani said Talks with the government’s IT department may result in the Lokayukta getting a website which people can readily access and where they can post grievances “The best part (about Lokayukta) is there is no intermediary unlike a court where there are lawyers” he feels aamirkhan@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express AppBy: IANS | Mumbai |

wasteland of corrupt countries (Source: AP) Top News Since he coasted to the 100-meter finish line in world-record time at the Bird’s Nest eight years ago Usain Bolt has been the smiling face of track and field He has served as the anchorman of the Olympics _ virtually the only reason any casual fan would pay attention to a sport that has orchestrated its own slow sad drug-infused downfall His tender hamstring improving Bolt will be back for a final go-round at Olympic glory when track starts in Rio de Janeiro on Aug 12 If as expected he wins all three sprint events _ the 100 200 and 4×100 relay _ he’ll only add to his legacy and cement himself at the fore of any conversation about Greatest Olympian Ever He is already the first person to win back-to-back Olympic gold at 100 and 200 meters Whether viewed over the six days he runs in Rio or over the eight years he’s graced the world with his once-in-a-lifetime mix of speed smiles and showmanship the World’s Fastest Man has offered track a reprieve from the wasteland of corrupt countries reshuffled medals and win-at-any-cost malfeasance it has become Russians will be absent from this year’s Olympic track meet _ banned by the sport’s governing body the IAAF which contributed to the problems as much as solved them over the years Even with those 67 athletes out of the mix the 10-day meet is bound to be filled with suspicious glances among the 2000-plus runners throwers and jumpers who will be present _ all wondering if they’ll get a fair shot in a sport that once defined the Olympics but is hurting because its leaders have proven themselves either unwilling or unable to stop all the cheating “It breaks my heart” said John Carlos the 1968 bronze medalist whose glove-fisted Black Power salute in Mexico City created one of the Games’ seminal moments “It’s a hurting thing to see your peers their names being erased out of the record books because individuals ran faster times that might be enhanced by substances And the powers that be might turn their heads because they had people coming through the turnstiles with fists full of dollars” Money is always a good place to start when seeking the seeds of the destruction of almost any enterprise But the Olympics have also long been a place for countries and political movements to make bold statements During the Cold War the motivation was obvious: winners and losers at 100 meters certainly didn’t decide the arms race but the Olympic medal count was the sort of scoreboard-driven result either side could use to claim superiority in the increasingly bleak standoff between East and West “I remember going over to the Olympics thinking as a 20-year-old that it’s the most idealistic of institutions” said Tom McMillian a member of the 1972 American basketball team that lost the gold-medal game to the USSR after officials gave the Soviets three chances to inbound the ball with 3 seconds left “Then you wake up the next morning thinking `This is a flawed institution”’ The Soviet Union is history but what’s currently happening in Russia has been described time and again as `70s and `80s Eastern Bloc-style cheating Two independent investigations _ one into the Russian track team the other into the country’s entire sports system _ have shown a pattern of top-to-bottom corruption involving government officials anti-doping lab workers Olympic Committee members coaches and ultimately athletes who can profit wildly from going along with the program Whistleblower Vitaly Stepanov a former worker at Russia’s anti-doping agency whose wife competed in the corrupted Russian system estimated 80 percent of coaches used doping to prepare their athletes for the London Games four years ago “They prefer to hide everything” Stepanov said of Russia’s modus operandi “They say the problem was a lot smaller than it actually was” Last week the IOC rebuffed Stepanov’s wife Yulia Stepanova the 800-meter runner who exposed Russia’s doping culture after being cast out by the track program She was seeking to compete at the Olympics and had the blessing of the IAAF and World Anti-Doping Agency But the IOC said no It was par for the course Efforts to sanction Russia have been tinged with confusion indecisiveness and politics The long-term repercussions could range from an eventual clean-up of the country’s track program to a “schism” within the Olympic movement as President Vladimir Putin suggested as part of the heated rhetoric that punctuated the doping-ban decisions He called the case against Russia “a well-planned campaign which targeted our athletes which included double-standards and the concept of collective punishment which has nothing to do with justice or even basic legal norms” Russia’s world-record pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva is among those staying home She says the remaining track-and-field athletes will be competing only for “pseudo-gold” medals without the Russians running in Rio That’s not so much Bolt’s concern Over the past four years only one man American Justin Gatlin _ the 2004 100-meter gold medalist who himself has served two doping bans _ has been able to seriously challenge Bolt at either 100 or 200 meters More than racing against Gatlin though Bolt is racing against the clock _ and into history And yet the doping scourge doesn’t elude him either His relay medal from 2008 is in jeopardy now thanks to retests conducted by the IOC that indicate teammate Nesta Carter could have used a banned substance In the past the IOC has stripped entire relay teams of medals even when only one person dopes At almost every stop he makes Bolt is asked about doping In an interview before his tuneup race in London in July he showed off the Band-Aid covering the mark where testers had drawn their latest tube full of blood “Rules are rules and doping violations in track and field is getting really bad so if you feel like you need to make a statement then thumbs up” Bolt said of the Russian ban He has never tested positive has mostly managed to smile through the thinly veiled questions about his own doping virtue and when the stakes are greatest has rarely failed to put on a show people want to watch The next act starts with 100-meter qualifying on Aug 13 Bolt who turns 30 on the day of the closing ceremony in Rio has said he’ll hang up the spikes after an encore season in 2017 but more recently has left the door slightly cracked for racing beyond that When he does leave his sport will start the search for a new face _ a new distraction perhaps from the problems that
