Reforming Elections and Lok Sabha [ REaL ]



Dear Shri Narendrabhai ,


During your speech at a rally in Kanpur recently , you spoke about issues concerning ,

SIMULTANEOUS ELECTIONS  *  POLITICAL DONATIONS  *  WORKING OF LOK SABHA

In respect of these , I have earlier sent to you ( as E Mails ) , some of my blogs listed below each issue

Obviously , final solutions in respect of each issue , must necessarily emerge from a country-wide debate among all citizens

I urge you to get NITI Aayog to frame suitable QUESTIONNAIRES ( one for each issue ) and invite citizens to vote ONLINE , on all government web sites

NITI Aayog may also want to consider conducting these ONLINE SURVEYS , through Mobile Apps, as you recently did in respect of demonetization
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SIMULTANEOUS ELECTIONS  :

*    " Due to continuous election mode, much time is wasted which can be used in
     development activities. I appeal to EC to start dialogue on holding the central and state
     elections simultaneously.

I had said earlier that elections ( Lok Sabha and Assembly Polls ) are held separately,

thereby adding a lot of monetary strain. It also allowed a space for black money to make

its way into the system.

We should work towards having simultaneous elections for the Centre and the state. "

POLITICAL  DONATIONS  :

   "  I requested in the all party meet that discussion on how political parties get funds
      should take place in the Parliament.

      It is the responsibility of political parties to set an example on non-corrupt practices,
      especially about donations to political parties "

WORKING  OF   LOK  SABHA  : 

    " Our agenda is stop corruption, stop black money. But others have an agenda of ' Stop
     Parliament ' .

Despite the President of the country telling them to do their job and let Parliament

function, they continued to disrupt Parliament. "
