AAP - Urgent need to impart skills and empower AAP members.

I am glad that there is a deluge of concerned citizens and aam aadmis joining the AAP movement. I believe most of the new members have the well-being of our Nation at heart and wish to do their bit to strengthen the movement called AAP and thus pull out our Nation from the quagmire that our past leaders have pushed it into.

In order to provide them the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve the objectives of AAP – curbing corruption and getting better governance, we need to synergise their energies, train and hand them the tools and thus make them capable of demanding better governance at both levels of the system - the public servants and the public representatives.

The plan which I propose to get our old and new members trained and involved in the “participative democratic” process is :--

a. Guide them on how to network with fellow citizens / members in their area so they can get involved in the local self government – may it be Gram Panchayat, Municipal Councils or Municipal Corporations so that better vigilance can be kept upon the actions of the officers and the public representatives.

b. Guide them on how to have periodic meetings with the Police – the local and traffic to demand better policing and implementation of laws.

c. Guide them on how to interact and keep vigil upon our three representatives – Corporators, MLAs and MPs by collectively interacting with them, questioning them on decisions taken (or not taken) in their respective legislative bodies, how they have spent their area development funds etc.

d. Empowering them with knowledge and usage of various laws which affect the common man – Mun. Corp. Act, MRTP Act, IPC, DC Rules, RTI Act, SRA, welfare schemes etc.

e. Now that more and more whistle-blowers and insiders are joining AAP, it would be worthwhile to make them explain to our members on how abuse of power and corruption occurs in Corporates, political parties, Govt offices etc. This would go a long way in understanding the rot that has set in in the governance process and thus empower our members to stem it and even reverse the process.

f. Grouping our members municipal ward wise or block wise would lead to better networking and co-ordination with fellow activists.

Thus our members would be better equipped to demand transparency, accountability and better governance from our public servants and public representatives.

I am sure, by doing so, our members would get the satisfaction of having done their bit for their town, city, State and the Nation and at the same time would be an asset for our Party.

I request all decision-makers in AAP to apply their minds to the above plan. If all agree, then I am willing to take this matter forward and offer my time and efforts to start training / orienting our cadres to achieve this goal.

Dear Mr Francis Dais, your concern about ".... if say I or someone else needs help with some government document or govt. related process which has caused much frustration because of non-greasing of palms, etc. then I must be able to go to someone who can help. " gets addressed in the plan proposed by me. When we collectively interact (as proposed in my piece) with the Govt. Departments etc., then such situations would easily get solved. By showing unity, being vigilant and creating pressure upon our public representatives and servants we are sending out a message to them that we mean business, that we would not tolerate inefficiency, dereliction of duty or corruption. more  
Mr Vora, you've written an insightful and pragmatic note and I appreciate it a lot. It is good to have meetings of people at different ward levels here in Mumbai or in different villages, local clusters, etc. as the movement spreads. And it must be rural-centric as many of our people live in villages. But my one point is, if this can successfully dovetail into a movement where if say I or someone else needs help with some government document or govt. related process which has caused much frustration because of non-greasing of palms, etc. then I must be able to go to someone who can help. I believe AAP will be doing yeoman service if this can be addressed, so that the corrupt or inefficient govt. servant will always be wary that his turn to be suspended might come if he doesn't do his duty properly. I also believe that leaders in AAP are viewing these postings so they know what is the mood of the people who are with them and implement things that are implementable and practical. Else, all these channels will become but fora where people write to be seen themselves but nothing much happens. more  
Until and unless we are in power with majority we can't change the system.that is what our experience teaches us. That's why the APP has formed.Other wise they would be as social activists.By doing so many agitations they felt that that nothing can be done unless they enter the political battle.Even in power without majority what happened to janlokpal bill in Delhi assembly we have seen. We have to learn from our mistakes. This the fight of AAM ADMI not neither AK nor APP. This the message we have to pass on t the people of this country. more
