We can talk about Social accountability, as much as we can, but "Who is to be held responsible(?)" for bad road conditions, non-working of the government machinery in some cases, insurance companies like Aviva Life Insurance threaten to collect premium from its customers, electricity is not there but bills are there every month, telephone doesn't function well but bills are there every month, many road and other infrastructure projects are left without completion, if common man goes to court/ legal the judge seems to be got manipulated by reach individuals or companies,...etc. It's not happening only in India but we've seen elsewhere too. What could be the solution? Who has to be held responsible? What will be the role of World Bank to correct this system in so many countries? How UNO, WB can fix this accountability problem? Will it continue for-ever till the end of our civilization, or will there be accountability and law and order restored all over the world again?
