Rule of Law: The Fundamental Prerequisite for Developed India

The Constitution of India guarantees "Rule of Law" on one side and discretion in the interest of Public Interest/National Interest other side. Past experiences of 67 years of  democratic rule in India has unambiguously established that authorities occupying various thrones under Indian democratic system are more interested in delivering services to citizens as matter of their discretion not as  "Rule of Law" asks them to delivered the same as matter of right of citizens.

That's why we as Nation is still deprived of status of "Developed Nation" even after passage of 67 years of independence from British colonial rule, contrary to the fact that countries who had experienced freedom long after India have developed as Nation

The rule of law and development are strongly interrelated and mutually reinforcing, that the advancement of the rule of law at the national and international levels is essential for sustained and inclusive economic growth, sustainable development, the eradication of poverty and hunger and the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the right to development, all of which in turn reinforce the rule of law, and for this reason we should work for this interrelationship of Rule of Law based development.
