109 former bureaucrats raised questions on the new criminal laws to be implemented from July 1

Jaipur : 109 former bureaucrats of the country have questioned some provisions of the new criminal laws, calling them a threat to the freedom of citizens. Former bureaucrats have expressed the fear of misuse of these provisions against common citizens opposing the government and honest public servants. Along with this, an open letter has been written to the President, Prime Minister, Union Home Minister, heads of all political parties and MPs to put pressure on not implementing these laws from July 1.

Former bureaucrats have written this letter under the banner of Constitution Conduct Group (CCG). Former public servants include PK Deb and Aditi Mehta, who have been Additional Chief Secretaries in the state, as well as Aruna Rai. CCG said in the letter that due to the passing of the bill in the absence of opposition in Parliament, many questions have remained unanswered, which need to be answered for the protection of democracy. It also said that there is a possibility of political misuse of some provisions of the new laws, so it is necessary to call an all-party meeting and discuss them before implementing them. Provisions of UAPA have been included in these laws. If anyone speaks against the government, he will be arrested and put in jail, then the hearing will take place in the court. There will be political misuse, which poses a grave threat to the republic. These laws should be implemented only after due consideration.
