Bestseller book by ARVIND KEJRIWAL " SWARAJ" and my thoughts!
During the days of Delhi Elections campaign 2013 , I have read this book and was quiet impressed by solutions given in the book.
The book is written by Arvind only, shows his clarity of thought and simple solutions to problems which are dramatized as complex problems.
Other thing is what is the approach of AAP towards National policy,
The Wikipedia entry for Lokpall bill shows
“ The Lokpal Bill was first introduced by Adv. Shanti Bhushan in 1968 and passed the 4th Lok Sabha in 1969. But before it could be passed by Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved and the bill lapsed.Subsequent versions were re-introduced in 1971, 1977, 1985, 1989, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2005 and in 2008, but none of them were passed. “
the thing is clear if you frame good policies they will never be executed unless there are right people in Lok sabha. AAP number one national policy is JAN LOKPAL and others will follow.
If we reduce corruption than there are many on going schemes of the government which would become very fruitful.
For reservation Arvind said that Jobs are created by good education and not reservation , it is so simple and yet people are pounding chest asking AAP National policy. ( Remember AAP is one year old party , Congress and BJP are either not clear about their policies).
Take for example AAP did not mentioned about the ANTI CORRUPTION HELPLINE in their Delhi manifesto , but as soon Arvind was sworned in as CM , He declared about the number is coming soon . The anti corruption helpline was established and calls kept on coming and coming. He declared openly in Ramlila maidan about it and the number was established , there is no blurredness about it. I called myself to register someone’s complain .
So once AAP is in power many and many policies will come out.
May be some will be inspired from this group also.
By resigining from Delhi Government Arvind and AAP clarity of thought is visible that there is zero tolerance for corruption and for passing of Lokpal bill
When AAP Delhi elections candidate’s tampered CD Footage was flashing on News channel about the candidate taking money without slip , Arvind Kejriwal tweeted the next minute “ A CD of some of our candidate is aired on news channels, no one will be spared if involved in corruption” . Can you expect this from any other party or a main leader of other parties.
Although later AAP got access of RAW Footage and Yogendra yadav and other volunteers worked 72 -80 without sleeping to get the truth out and it was found out that the tapes were tampered , Dr Kumar vishwas last line was not played where he said “ whatever cash or cheque , I would have to pay tax “ . And same for others.
Arvind and AAP fight is simply to eradicate corruption , other policies will follow soon but If you don’t eradicate the root cause , you can never frame /execute good policies.
It is now or never chances for all of us Indians to throw this demon of Corruption away , if we loose this chance ,we will loose it forever.
Yesterday I got an email from Avaaz.org which is non profit organization -> “
Corruption is choking India, but this election can be the moment we get our politicians on the hook to end it. As they plead for our votes, let's press party leaders for a real Lokpal that has the teeth it takes to end notes for netas and bribes for babus. Join the call now:
Corruption is choking India -- 96% of us agree. Politicians pretend they have given us the Lokpal we demanded to fix it, but unless we act now we could be stuck with a toothless watchdog for another five years.
Under pressure from a new party, Parliament finally set up a public ombudsman, but it's way too little to stop babus taking bribes. With votes at stake, now is the one time politicians have to listen -- if we say we reject the half-measures they've agreed so far, we can push party leaders to promise the changes so many of us have fought for.
Let's raise a clarion call for a Lokpal with teeth to clean up the rackets that are holding India back. Add your name now, and share with everyone -- when enough of us sign, we'll create a media storm no party can ignore:
Corruption kills. From courageous whistleblowers like Satyendra Dubey murdered for speaking out to victims of poor construction crushed by buildings that should never have been allowed, corruption is India’s cancer. And it is killing growth as well as people -- 2011 alone saw 5,177 billion rupees of corrupt money flowing out of India.
Last December netas passed a joke of a law to restrain corruption -- the Lokpal Act lacks independent investigation powers and convicted officials can get away with less than a year in jail for some crimes. The law even gives government money to bureaucrats to fight charges against them they think are "frivolous" -- while ordinary people have to pay their side from their own pockets!
People power got this law passed -- first by bringing the demands of millions to the government in a movement they couldn't ignore and then by supporting a new political party to challenge the traditional ruling classes. No matter who you plan to vote for, all Indians want to kill corruption. If we act together, we can get every party to pledge to pass a law that works. Join the call now:
When Anna Hazare had millions backing his fight for a Lokpal law, Avaaz members were in the front lines. Hundreds of thousands of us joined the call for a strong people's ombudsman to tackle corruption and together we helped battle back a weak draft that would have excluded the Prime Minister's office and sitting MPs. Now it's time for a final push for the Lokpal we all want.
With hope, more
