When the political system of India is allegedly witnessing myriad unethical and corrupt practices and political leaders and big busnessmen invloved in dubious and obnoxious fraudulent activities of gigantic proportion with scams worth crores of rupees becoming the order of the day and the people hailing from the lowest strata of the society still reeling under abject poverty including acute exploitation at all levels, a former young jurist feeling the pain of the poorest of the poor and the hapless in failing to seek justice in extremely protracted judicial processes that hang on for years together, has taken a plunge into active politics yesterday on 1st of March, 2018 by joining a two and a half year old national party known as Azad Bharat Congress and being unanimously elected its national president.
Addressing a press conference in Press club of India, soon after retiring and taking the reign of this party, former Judge K K Sharma said that during the last 33 years of his carreer as a lawyer and district judge in Amethi,( the political constituency of the Congress president Rahul Gandhi) he has strongly felt and experienced that the poor, down troddens and the economically deprived people of Uttar Pradesh and elsewhere are the worst sufferers in acknowledging due justice who are constrained to run from pillar to posts to seek justice, but of no avail.
Expressing his immense dissatisfaction and regret over the tardy state of affairs in the delivery of due justice to the lower middle class and the grass root people of the rural areas, former judge Sharma said, there should be decentralised judicial system at the state and district levels of the country with setting up of maximum number of judicial benches so that the hapless and economically deprived poor people are not constrianed to approach distant courts to seek justice. Sharma said: during his judicial career of 7 years as the full fledged district judge he has worked very hard and dedicatedly and cleared thousands of pending cases, giving due justice to the have nots and had established a record to be included in Guiness book but was pre strategically denied the honour due to the conspiracy of the powers that be.
Believing in establishing communal harmony in the country, the president of Azad Bharat Congress said : the muslims of the country today are the most backward lot and need to be educated, given all the facilities and privileges due for them constitutionally and bring them at par to the other communities of the country enjoying the comforts and priviliges in all fields of the country. Believing in secularism and communal amity K.K. Sharma believes that the nation is today the greatest victim of huge unemployment and population explosion and Azad Bharat Congress will make it its main aim and objective to mobilise people of the country on widespread scale.
He was also concerned about the women security and dwelt at length on the empowerment of women saying that unless or until, the AADHI AABAADI i.e. the women of the country are not empowered socially, economically, politically and educationally we’ll not be able to do justice to the cause of women empowerment, the slogan which every political party raises during the elections but backs out after achieving political power.
On a question of political funding of his newly emerged party and the possibility of its countering the influence or impact of giant national and regional parties like Congress, BJP etc, Azad Bharat Congresse’s newly sworn president former judge K.K. Sharma said that his party believes in collecting funds through commen man and not from big business houses. He believes that there is no need for excessive funding to run political parties.
