The CBI has never, in all its history, convicted anyone from the ruling government.

Perhaps because our political leaders have always been honest, upstanding, and entirely incorruptible.

It’s a comforting thought – but sadly removed from reality. The truth is that power corrupts, and India has been crippled by criminality at the highest level. The BJP government made a pledge to tackle corruption, but it starts from the top – and politicians are literally above the law.

The CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) was created to be an independent institution responsible for keeping our leaders in check, and ensuring that everyone is held accountable. It was set up to investigate government corruption. “Industry, Impartiality, and Integrity” is its motto. But it isn’t doing its job.

If we cannot trust the CBI to be neutral and to defend the law and our public values, what purpose does it actually serve?

It’s broken. And that needs to change.
