That is an obscene ex-pression which every gentleman or lady should not employ it.
For historical knowledge & by acafdemic interest the ex-pression is

However, you are wrong Leslie, Indian Constitution & laws enacted by parliament are excellent. In any democracy the people should be vigilent so that Democracy functions.therwise the Government installed by people goes astray.
The only drawback I find in the Constitution isthat is does not provide for any penalty for derelictiomn of duty, disobedience to the Constitution or violation of the provisions of Constitution, violation of fundamental or human rights of citizens by Constitutional functionaries(authorities) except one has to use provisions of IPC 1860 or The Human Rights Protection Act 1993. The functionaries who are empowered to penalise are appointed by the "State" as defined by Art. 12 of the Constitution hence, cannot afford to displease the state.
Only an impeachment by majority of people of India may do the job. This for the time being is a "WISHFUL THINKING"
Law is equal to all:
Read Art 14 of the Constitutionof India.
Right to Equality
Art. 14. The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India. Definition. Laws inconsistent with or in derogation of the fundamental rights. 6 Equality before law.
Art. 13. (2) The State shall not make any law which takes away or abridges the rights conferred by this Part and any law made in contravention of this clause shall, to the extent of the contravention, be void.
For appointment of Information Commissioner section 4(c&d) of RTI Act 2005 apply
(c.)publish all relevant facts while formulating important policies or announcing the decisions which affect public;
(d)provide reasons for its administrative or quasi-judicial decisions to affected persons.
All politicians, Sonia Gandhi. Manmohan Singh, Vajpayee, Advani, Modi are all public servannts. Let us reconvince ourselves that we are a secular democratic republic& not subjects in colonial rule. Although by paradox & by our own follies, in practice situation is to the contrary.

>Law is not equal to all citizens, Politicians have imunity, so they do what they want, example of Ramanand Thiwari's case, Being appointed a State information commissioner of Mumbai by none other than Chief minister, dy ch.minster and an person from the opposition, who are also corrupt. Whay Justice can a citizen get, although can of worms are begining to open up it will take a hurculian task to clean up the act,Constitution should be amended so that every citizen
is equally in the eyes of Law, no imunity to Beauracats and Politicians, will our P.M. or Sonia do it, the answer is NO reason if they do so how will they generate funds for elections.
