Mumbai: Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai, says people who have the mandate to rule are typical “bullies”. Disptach News Desk reported on Saturday.
Rai said things have changed and the silent majority can no more be bullied by the minority. The CAG said, “The myth that has been debunked is that of the silent majority. The majority is always silent because the minority feel that they have a mandate and they are exercising that mandate.
They are more articulate and aggressive than the silent majority…… But, the times have changed….But, the so called people who have the mandate, are typical what I would call, bullies. The majority has to be consistent in their efforts to see the changes in the system,” Rai said in response to a question at a banking symposium here. “Today, there is a culture of end justifying the means, which has far reaching implications,” he added
Rai said compulsion of coalition politics in every democracy is leading to convenient deviations. “The dominant culture of adjustment is prevalent… With honesty and integrity becoming the casualty.” “It is unfortunate that this is exactly what doesn’t happen and any number impediments are created in law taking its own course,” he said of statements by the public officials over the large number of misdemeanors which have been reported that the law would be allowed to take its own course.
