before you today and would seek to have your reactions on whether you agree on those… First: Governance is at its lowest ebb That morale of the civil servants is low That the credibility of the government is at its lowest That decision-making is a casualty Second: That this situation is too deleterious for the nation That too much is at stake for too many in such a situation Third: On you and officers of the all-India servicesamong othersrests the onus to remedy the situation You and I have a part to play We can make the difference The first proposition: Why do I make this statement We have chief ministers who have had to vacate their positionsallegedly for graftand on whom courts and other judicial bodies have made adverse pronouncements We have Union cabinet ministers who are in prison We have Union cabinet ministers who have also had to vacate their positions againallegedly on complaints of ill-doing We have members of Parliament who are being indicted by the judiciary for various actsincluding accepting cash for exercising their vote in Parliamentand also seeking cash to ask questions in the House These are examples of lawmakersand form the highest echelon of administrators In the civil service we have many examples They are too many to merit counting now All this compelled a senior cabinet minister in the Union cabinet to say: There is a deficit of ethics in governance Does all this not bode very ill for the nation Todaywe are facing a testing time in the history of our nation The quality of governance is below parand subject to severe criticism There has been an erosion of peoples faith in government Their confidence in public institutions has declined National trust in bureaucracyincluding the police forcehas collapsed The integrity and professionalism of civil servants are being questioned It often provides very poor testimony of our capabilities if members of the all-India services allow themselves to be used if not as facilitatorscertainly as a medium for wrongdoing by others This has brought the credibility of government to its lowest since independence …Secondlywhy do I say that too much is at stake for too many people As all of you are awarewe are among the fastest-growing economies of the world From contributing to 62 per cent of GDP of the world todayby 2040 we would be contributing about 88 per cent This is indeed commendable Butthere is no room for complacency for the simple reason that countries like China would leap from 137 per cent to 194 per cent over the same timeframeperhaps replacing USAJapan and Germany We have to ensure smooth economic development We have to ensure inclusive growth Our actions will provide stability in the nationthereby ensuring rapid economic growth It is a poor commentary on our attempts to foster growth if 64 years after independencewe still believe Rs 32 defines a poverty line …We are living in an era where good governance has assumed primacy in public discourseas it is expected to lead to improvement in the quality of life of citizensby reinforcing the legitimacy and credibility of our institutions and improving the quality of public service Ironicallythe demand for good governance is entwined with demand for less governance as well… Sustained citizen-centric and voluntary movements have compelled successive governments to rethink their approach to different issues Hitherto followed models of governance are proving to be ineffective We need to rethink our entire approach towards citizens… My third proposition: …All attempts to improve governance will come to naught if the agencies responsible for governance do not consider probity in public life and ethical behaviour as cardinal principles in their official dealings In thisthe police force and audit have a twin role to play While we have ourselves to maintain highest standards of probity in public lifeboth these agencies are also mandated to enforce such standards on those involved in public administration… One of the oft-repeated criticisms against enforcement and accountability institutions is that they paralyse administrationkill initiative and reward the votaries of the status quo Such debates are commonplace in our country today more than everwith a number of recently released reports by the Indian Audit and Accounts Department pointing out irregularities and the follow-up action taken thereon by other law enforcement agencies These criticisms emanate from a mindset that views accountability agencies as an adversary than as an aid to good governance and better management While the primary responsibility of the audit institutions in the country is to report to Parliament about the proper utilisation of public fundsit is also conscious of the need for adding value to the audited organisation through its reports Rai is the Comptroller and Auditor-General of India Extracted from the 26th Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Memorial

be “fiendish” to beat Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League final Allegri whose side are playing in their second final in three seasons after losing to Barcelona in 2015 admitted that Real start as favourites but believes Juve are capable of pulling off a surprise “We have worked hard all year and the wins this season have been all about reaching this game But on Saturday we need to win and we need to understand when will be the moments to attack and when to defend” Allegri told a news conference on Friday “We have to have the belief that we can bring that Cup home and we have to be fiendish to strike when Real offer us an opening” he added Allegri said his team had matured since that loss to Barcelona and now had greater self-confidence “Two finals in three years is an important step but it is not enough” he said “We have to win and we must be tough technically and tactically We aren’t here to visit Cardiff – we came here to win and take that trophy back home “In 2015 we got to the final and deserved it but perhaps we didn’t feel confident enough because we had come out of a number of years of struggling in the Champions League We didn’t expect to win but now it is different” Allegri added Allegri declined to give any information on his team selection saying he had yet to make up his mind but would factor in the risk of the game going to extra-time Juventus have appeared in eight European Cup/Champions League finals but have only twice emerged victorious “Tomorrow (Saturday) stats don’t count its a one game final we need belief in our ability and play better than Real” Allegri said “Yes Juve have played eight finals and lost six but that just shows that in a final anything can happen” added the former AC Milan coach For goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon who at the age of 39 may be facing his last chance to win a Champions League the prospect of a victory carries particular significance “Winning would be the right end to a fairytale and people like fairytales” Buffon said “We have to make sure we have no regrets because we have the chance to write an important page of history” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More
