All India Organization of taxpayers can be a panacea for what ails Indian democracy says leading entrepreneur Laxman Jaiswal

This decision vindicates Laxman Jaiswal’s vision expressed in 2018 about the need for a watchdog/monitoring body for regulating expenditures from taxpayers’ money on sops and ‘freebies’.

Eastern India’s leading infra entrepreneur and activist Laxman Jaiswal welcomed the Supreme Court decision to set up a committee to form an All India Organization of taxpayers should be formed, which will be the biggest organization in the world. The organization’s role shall be crucial no matter which Government is ruling, without the approval of this Organisation, no free electricity, free water, free distribution, or loan waivers can be announced by any government implementing them.

Jaiswal has been vocal about the need for such an organization/body since 2018 when he in a media statement had demanded a similar regulatory body, in his words, “Money belongs to the tax payments, so the taxpayers should have the right to oversee its use.”

Every Political party shall keep luring the public by distributing freebies for votes, since it benefits them.  Whatever schemes are announced, the government should first give their blueprints and take consent from this organisation.  This should be applicable even to the salaries of MPs & MLAs and the other indiscriminate benefits they get.

Is democracy limited to just voting?  What rights do we tax payers have after that?

Taxpayers should also have the right to hold MPs, MLAs accountable and initiate disciplinary action against them for disrupting the working of parliament. They are after all “servants”, paid by taxpayers.

Right to recall any such “Freebies” should also be implemented soon. 

Laxman Jaiswal who is the CMD of Ascon Infra with diverse business interests as Infrastructure Development, IT and e-commerce business among others, feels that this body should also have  common citizens from among taxpayers from each state, one representative from each state along with those appointed by the Supreme Court. He also said often the common citizen is completely overlooked in the decision making process mostly hijacked people either in the corridors of power or the power brokers or even pressure groups who drive the narratives as per their coloured vision.

Laxman Jaiswal is hoping that with this landmark decision will also give some teeth to the organization, the power to decisively act.
