As mentioned in my earlier document for “Electoral Reforms” made last year for controlling corruption only focused on certain issues; This new document is contains more elaborate, detailed areas where reforms are needed in addition to my earlier document; Today’s situation in country absolutely demands the need for SOCIAL JUSTICE, SOCIAL EQUALITY AND GENDER EQUALITY, which is possible through political, electoral system of the country. If we look into organisational composition of political parties, majority of them are filled with only upper echelons, elite or people belong to so called powerful communities, majority of people belong to the downtrodden even though no dearth to talent, or competence or ability to serve the people through the political party organisations, strangely did not find proper space, reorganisation, get responsibilities, get cooperation from other sections in the party organisation (Congress party of course far better than many parties, at least provides more internal democracy), the present generation of people belong to the downtrodden especially belong to SC & ST should lifelong express gratitude to the architects of our countries constitution prepared under the head ship of Dr B R Ambedker incorporating mandatory provision for reservations for SC & ST in the electoral system, else hardly there will be any representation to these sections in the law making bodies of the country and be part in the governance; also all the women should be thankful for the congress party for bringing law for 50 % reservation of seats in the local body elections.
Also It is a bare fact, lack of proportionate representation leads to backwardness of states due to lack of proper propaganda of government welfare programmes (mostly supported by central government- UPA government under Congress party has launched many welfare schemes for downtrodden sections- of course some state governments cutting across parties has their own welfare schemes- but as per the experience of the developed countries who become developed nations and also as per many international economists the welfare schemes hampers the growth of the nation, in fact it is true as it is something like giving fish every day, but how long the governments provide fish, ???? they need to make people lean catch the fish from the waters???? For that people needed power, representation, opportunity ????) as “LACK OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AND SOCIAL EQUALITY” is the “PRIMARY ROOT CAUSE OF CORRUPTION” AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNANCE; AT ALL PLACES, HAMPERING GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT. Because, as of now the elected representatives at all levels are mostly elite, upper echelons of the society, mostly belonging to select few families who are ruling from village to state.
It is fully evident If we look at statistics of one of the southern state where almost 1/3 of the sitting legislators belong to a particular upper caste whose percentage of population is barely less around 6%, also almost from the formation of the state till now (with only one time for a brief period one downtrodden person occupied the CM position) the state government head belong only either of two so called powerful communities, in addition majority of the important portfolios in the cabinet are enjoyed & enjoying only by the so called powerful caste only with other powerful ruled caste has around 5 % of the total population in the state- the total strength of both powerful castes is around 11%, more shockingly the caste with around 6% ruled the state for over 40 years, whereas caste with 5 % ruled the state around 20 years (how come these communities become powerful, not others ?????) this utter inequality in political power distribution resulted in the state in acute poverty with more than 90 % of the population belong to BPL as was known from the PDS supply cards as per the official web site of the state, also more shockingly in this state in almost all the districts cutting across political parties and cutting across castes and religions were ruled by select few families, because every district having more than two elected representatives (both elected representatives in the same family are either of the combinations MP-MLA, MLA-MLA, MP-MLC, MLA-Local body heads etc- is democracy prevailing ?? or only neo feudalism in the mask of democracy prevailing??) from the same family or kin & kith of the same family, either husband & wife or mother & son, father & son, daughter or two brothers etc, also the case is almost same in the political party organisations in almost all the regional parties in that state (most of the son-daughter are party office bearers or state youth heads or office bearers- the case is same in almost all the parties); another example if we look at the one of the mineral rich newly formed state in the central India where over 65 % of the population belong to the SC, ST, Minority surprisingly the state party heads of almost all the parties belong to the upper castes, & upper echelons, and the party primary units i.e the block level party organisation hardly not even 5% of the total blocks has head of the organisation of political parties belong to the SC, ST & Minority, and even though the state is mineral rich with abundance of natural recourses majority of the pollution lacks basic amenities and lives in acute poverty, and some of the youth are attracted to Maoist movements and becoming nexlites, the case is almost same in almost all the states in government and electoral system, and also in party organisations; if we look at eastern states one of the eastern state which has over 20 % of the SC population in the state in one political party which has tallest leaders in the country & government shockingly has only one member from the SC population in the state party executive (only one sitting MLA), the case is same in almost (many not be this utter low) all the parties in almost all political parties- then how come the welfare of the SC are taken care by the political parties if the political parties do not have the heart to provide representation by just having titular SC department in some of the political parties but in most of the political parties either they never provide funds for the department or the funds are very meagre to carry out propaganda of welfare schemes for betterment of their community , also in almost all the political parties the cooperation from the main organisation is very meagre as regards to SC & ST departments are concerned;
Also the analysis of the income groups majority of the elected representatives belong to a upper income group with majority of them are either milliners or billionaires only (only around 2% of the population belong to milliners & billionaires category even in the upper income group) with every few exceptions belong to other income groups, the countries income statistics shows near about 30 % population belong to BPL, around 30 % population belong to lower income, low middle income group and 20 % belong to middle income group and rest of the population belong to upper income group; but strangely for decades only 1.001% population (milliners & billionaires) making laws for the country, preparing the welfare schemes for the downtrodden (ignoring the fact that practical experience is real experience than the theoretical as such only people belong to the category only know their issues better and enact and take appropriate measures for changing the laws as and when required based on the need of the time). The above view is substantiated if one observes the average assets of the parliamentarians in the country is Rs 25 Croes and over ¾ of the parliamentarians are multi milliners and some of them are billionaires, the case is same in almost all the state assemblies, also the Gram Panchayts with SC women sarpanches are better implementing the welfare programs and also development is better than other gram panchayts which is stated in the reports of government in the ministry of panchayraj. It is an open secret that most of the elected representatives of the ruling party in almost all the states at all levels in general, deliberately, discretely promoting spoil system of administration;
Also The analysis the representation of age group in the various states from gram panchayat to parliament the youth occupies very less position, when compared to the strength of population in the country is around 70 %, as the assembly and parliament are law making bodies as the world is changing due to technology development which is lacking in majority of the elected representatives in India, also in the young elected representatives majority of them either hereditary or dynasty politics,
Also the analysis of the gender equality in assembly and parliament less than 10% of the total strength belong to women, however thanks to the law which makes made 50 % reservation of seats in local body elections for women even though it is a fact known from the government reports that Gram Panchayats lead to women are better than other gram panchays and women in the business organisations are better managers and those organisations are running profitably, as it is a fact that where the decision making authority lies there women proved to be better than men in many areas of business and administration, but surprisingly majority of the women representatives at all levels are kin & kith of the senior politicians in that territory or belong to political dynasties are kin & kith of the existing elected representatives that to only 10 % of the total strength at the state and national level leading our country top in the atrocities against women, more in prostitution and red light areas (over 30 million in this heinous trade and every year near about 3 lack girl children & women are forced into this trade mostly entered forcefully and leading very pathetic life in the red light areas still the laws never bother to release them and make stringent punishments for such touts forcing the women to this trade as per the government reports only, this situation is mostly because of lack of proportionate representation and mostly lack of interest of the present women representatives in assembly & parliament as almost all of existing women representatives belong to the upper echelons mostly urban elite and are wealthy and are mostly kin & kith of some senior sitting or ex elected representatives are naturally born and brought up in the sophisticated, pampered atmosphere are certainly un aware of the ground realities, in addition most of them are confined to their homes – only occasionally they are in the constituencies and the male members in the family only take care of the activities on their behalf ???), more in child labour (about 60 million) as the laws related to these areas are weak, in regarding to political party organisation the case is almost similar, the women donot have major representation in the party organisations in almost all parties with only select few women leaders in every party are in lime lit all the time in almost all the political parties, and also the women’s wing has no noticeable actives except only during the price rise of commodities mostly during the rise of onion or during the rise of LPG only the case is same in almost all the political parties, also the men in political party organisations have very low opinion about the women party leaders or party activists in politics and the case is almost the same in every political organisation (sometimes degraded view, also sometimes some of the senior male office bearers expecting the women party activists or office bearers- (other than belong to the political families or elected representatives) in low ranks to visit them alone after office hours to get elevated in the ranks in the party organisation is a common syndrome in almost all the political parties- this is the main reason most of the women belonging to non political families are not showing interest in the politics are unable to rise in the political carrier ????? – as they feel that politics is fully male dominated arena like the religious institutions, of course as far as respect for women extended by religious institutions cannot be comparable to that extended by political party organisations as the later being meagre);
Also IT IS A FACT THAT LACK OF SOCIAL JUSTICE CREATES CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH MAKES ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES TO PROMOTE CORRUPTION UNAVOIDABLY. As most of the political parties are having a single agenda to be in power at that respective level, as such provides the tickets to people who are having all sorts of abundance, as such the people who got the ticket to contest election are mostly belong to minor populated of castes in that area, mostly being local elite/ upper echelon of the society, in order to win the election they need majority population castes support, as such, the candidates need to spend excess money/miscellaneous money in the election, just for the sake of win in the election only, beyond the stipulated limit, through their kin, kith and close aides of the candidate to show the election commission that their expenditure is within the limit. It is the root cause of liaison and lobbying by the kin, kith & close aides to recover their moneys spent for the success elected representative, also since majority of the elected representatives are having business nexus directly or indirectly through their kin & kith, and most of the elected representatives are more or less lobbies for some of the business organisations or business persons and it is the root cause of corruption; Also the candidates need to have some followers from the majority population, to represent them in the respective territory the candidates caste population being minor in that territory, in order to keep the followers, the candidates encourage the local leaders in villages and mandals to get/fix small contracts/deals and making welfare programmes as money spinning activities for them, also in order to carry on their activities smoothly, they need the support of local administration, as such they do pressure lobbies on the ruling government, being an elected member of the ruling party to have officials who can be biased towards them, to get posting in their respective territory for getting control in the territory, getting their works done for their individual self benefit, as well as for their followers. These are the fundamental reason that money meant for the welfare schemes & development activities especially at the village and mandal levels are not reaching the beneficiaries as intended. As such the care full analysis of the representation in the political party origination of various parties and various governments at different levels emphasizes the need for reforms in the existing system for making mandatory representation in the political party organisations and government as per the percentage of population of castes, religion, gender, age group and income group for achieving inclusive growth of all sections of the people in the country.

As discussed above lack mandatory law in the beginning of the constitution for proportionate representation in the electoral system led to the rise of poverty in the country by making only select few castes become more economically powerful due to majority of the representation of those particular castes in the electoral system made majority of those castes people almost economically strong (as the elected representatives of those castes mostly favoured in the government to get contracts, mines etc also the flaws in laws made the corrupt practices by some of these castes led to the complete downfall of the other castes and they remain poor from the independence, and this is the reason for the rise of naxalisim); and since the rise of land values these small percentage of castes (around 5% or less than 5% are controlling the state governments for more than 20 to 4o years in the total) who got initially the more representation due to mostly there management techniques by all means for the first time or second time at that time are enjoying the un presidential power and remain in the power from the independence to till date only rotation among themselves and their kin and kith only should enjoy the power at the pretext of welfare schemes, or free bees at the time of election and uses all sorts of techniques to acquire power to become more powerful; and also it is a great shock to know that only select few families are ruling all states and central government for the last sixty years ????????(comparing themselves with the party founders families without any shame as they dare to compare themselves to the founders family of some of the political parties who belong to the freedom fighters family for carrying out their own dynasty politics; it should be made mandatory that all other families other than belonging to freedom fighters family should be barred to have not more than one member in the family to hold any position in the government or political party organisation), its ultra high time to change the system???????????; wasting a day delay in bringing law for proportionate representation in the political party and electoral system in the country to rectify the historic blunder in the constitution of India is nothing but criminal negligence on the part of the governments of the day ???????????????
As such there is an acute need for proportionate representation in the political and electoral system of the country for the inclusive uniform growth of all sections of the country at all times. As such through electoral reforms by bringing social justice making it mandatory for the political parties to allocate tickets to contest elections at all levels i.e from gram panchayat to parliament proportionate to the percentage of population category wise (FC, BC, SC, ST and MINORITY) covering all major castes/ sub castes within the category of (FC, BC, SC, ST and MINORITY). The proportionate allocation as per major caste / major sub caste within the category should be mandatory for the assembly and parliament election, where as minor populated castes/ sub castes within each category should be given preference at the local body elections, but it is the discretion of the political parties to cover minor populates castes/ sub castes or not. The principle of social justice should be applicable to all candidates who wish to contest independently, at any level of election, making eligibility to contest the election at any level, only by candidates belonging to the same category (FC, BC, SC, ST and MINORITY) in that respective territory.
As by implementing social justice in the electoral system, certainly there will be reduction in corruption, as on getting party nomination, miscellaneous election expenditure by candidate for elections will certainly, drastically reduced, due to the reason that candidates caste lobbies will work for the win being, there caste having larger population, in majority cases, the election expenditure is well within the limit determined by election commission.
(3) NEED FOR SOCIAL EQUALITY MAKING EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL INCOME GROUP, GENDER AND AGE GROUPS PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY BE PART IN THE POLITICAL, ELECTORAL SYSTEM PROPORTIONATE TO THE INCOME GROUPS, GENDER AND AGE GROUPS IN THE COUNTRY
Since the blunder in the constitution allowed only few select castes become powerful over a period of time and they are being allowed by the system to become more rich and more stronger at the cost of the downtrodden, since majority of them are ruling and whatever they say is the rule or law officially because they are the rulers, made contracts, land values etc etc to suit their needs?????? Making the poor remain poor, as a rest of their governance there caste population majority of them become higher income and milliners and billionaires, but at the same time the other downtrodden sections (SC, ST, BC and MINORITY) remain or become much lower income group (BPL); as such in order to rectify this mistake another most important thing which is very badly and very urgently needed in the political party and electoral system of the country is to bring social equality. By making it mandatory that all the political parties to implement social equality in allocating the party tickets to contest elections at all level, according to the percentage of economic class (income group of population of the people at that particular level i.e gram panchayat, mandal, assembly segment, parliament segment, in addition to maintaining social justice, which create a level playing field. The reservation of seats as per the income groups can be made out of average income of the people living in the village/ward, mandal/block, assembly segment, parliament constituency along with total number of people belong to the income group the ratio which is more should be the certiorari for reserving the territory for that income group. More elaborately, all parties should allocate tickets based on the class of income group, i.e lower income group class, and middle income group class (lower middle, middle middle, upper middle class) and upper class in the respective territory simultaneously maintaining the proportionate allocation of tickets as per the percentage of population of castes in that respective territory. For example in the village having 1000 population with total no 10 of seats for panchayat, with 600 people belong to lower income group class, 300 people belong to middle income group class, and 100 people to upper income group class, then allocation of tickets should be in ratio of 60:30:10 to contest election, similarly the same stand should be applied for the mandal, zilla parishad, assembly and parliament elections, allocating tickets proportionate to the percentage of income groups i.e lower income group, middle income group, upper income group existing in that respective territory, simultaneously maintaining the ratio of distribution of tickets proportionate to the percentage of category/castes, creates a level playing field in all castes and classes. This measure will certainly eliminate corruption to a maximum extent; will certainly create confidence in the people of the country towards the politics and parliamentary democracy, by eliminating from their minds, which politics is not belonging to upper class of the society alone, but for all economic classes as well as all sections of people of the country, and also that politics/political organisations are not money making business organisations, but service oriented organisations. This principle of same income group is applicable to independent candidates also. All candidates who wish to contest as independent candidate are allowed to contest the election with that respective level if income group only. I.e any individual belonging to same income group is allowed to compete with other counter parts of same income group only. In order to prevent more no of independent candidates, it should be mandatory that the candidates wish to contest as independent candidate needs to submit an affidavit duly signed by at least 10 % of the total voters in that level, supporting the candidature of that independent. This measure is necessary, as the election is as per the class of income group, many people will barge in the fray, creating unnecessary burden to the election commission, creates confusion among the people, in addition there exists a chance to be dummy of some other parties to dilute the votes. Also this measure will certainly eliminate the bogus candidates to split the votes among the parties, non serious candidates.
Also needed is to ensure justice for women as the politics become male dominated like religious institutions, and since lack of proportionate representation in the political and electoral system lead to the inequalities and violence against women are on the continues rise, also the lack of empowerment of women ids the primary root cause of the poverty in the country, also it is one of the root cause for the malnutrition in the children, anime ain the women, and also the low literacy rate; as such there is an acute need of maintaining the gender equality in the political and electoral system at all levels; certainly in this regard every women should be thankful to the then government making it mandatory 50 % of the seats in local body elections. But the same should be implemented in the assembly and parliament elections and maintaining the same ration in the cabinet also, as the women CEO’s are proved to be very successful compared to the male CEO’s. Also it should be made mandatory in the 50 % reservation to women all other caste, religion; income group should be maintained in the standard proportionate manner.
Also since the youth of the country is almost 70 %, where as the representation in the electoral system is mostly old aged people, also in the government only people who are in normal government service retired, since the technology is changing every day and the old aged people may not accustomed to the latest changes, it should be made mandatory that proportionate representation as per the age groups like 21 to 35 one age age group, 35 to 55 one age group, 55 to 65 one age group; the political and electoral system should maintained in addition to all castes, religions, gender, income group to ensure that elected representatives are representatives of all sections and the houses i.e parliament, assembly or local bodies are having a mix of all sections to will certainly lead the country in a inclusive growth of all sections.
(4) NEED FOR ALL REGISTERED POLITICAL PARTIES FOR MANDATORY INCLUSION OF ALL CASTES, RELIGION, AGE GROUP AND INCOME GROUP IN THE PERCENTAGE OF PROPORTION TO THE POPULATION IN THAT CATEGORY AT THAT LEVEL FOR ACHIEVING INCLUSIVE GROWTH OF ALL SECTIONS OF PEOPLE;
As discussed earlier the standard guidelines should include representation for all sections of the people i.e FC, SC, ST, BC and Minority and Gender Equality proportionate to the population in that area/ territory in all political parties for providing equal opportunity. In case of additional wings like Mihala, SC, ST, OBC, Minority need to follow the proportionate % of existing castes/ tribes/ sub castes in that particular category. Again in case of special wings like Kisan cell, Computer cell, Intellectual cell, Human Rights cell, Legal cell, Trader’s cell, etc the general composition as per the proportionate of population of FC, BC, SC, ST and MINORITY and WOMEN should be maintained to have a level playing field in addition to maintaining the proportionate representation as per the income group.
Also the average age should be maintained by all political parties by providing opportunity for mixture of young and experience people, also the political parties should make their representation as per the age group (from 21 to 35 years one age group, 35 t0 55 one age group and 55 to 65 one age group based on the percentage of population of the total population of the total population of 21 to 65 age group).
(5) NEED FOR MAKING IT MANDATORY UNIFORM PROCEDURE FOR ALL POLITICAL PARTIES AS FAR AS NUMBER OF OFFICE BEARERS (MINIMUM & MAXIMUM NUMBER), ALSO FOR DOING JUSTICE TO ALL SECTIONS OF PEOPLE AS PER PROPORTIONATE REPRESENTATION FOR ENSURING THE PROXIES OF THE UPPER ECHELONS IN THE RESPECTIVE SECTIONS WILL NOT ENTER AND PEOPLE WITH TALENT, CALIBRE ARE IN THE PARTY AS OFFICE BEARERS AND IN GOVERNMENTS AS ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WHO ARE REAL COMPETENT AND SERVICE ORIENTED; NEED FOR FIXING THE NUMBER OF CO- OPTED MEMBERS AT EACH LEVEL.
In order to create a uniform system prevail in all political party organisations and better reach to the people as the motto of political parties is serve the people through educating them and also resolving their issues and govern & do administration on assuming the mandate for formation of government at any level; in order to achieve these objectives there should be uniform set of laws exist to govern all political parties, lack of uniform guidelines for the political parties people are confused with the leadership pattern and designations of various political parties, also many political parties especially the regional political parties which are mostly being individual centric i.e the party founders and patterns and their kin & kith only controls the party and rest of the office bearers are more less titular heads, are mostly like puppets (congress party is far better compared to the regional parties as internal democracy exists and also the youth icon of the congress party introduced election system in the IYC to contest and get elected to as an office bearer at any level- but even this system need to be revamped to ensure not only kin & kith of the senior leaders are being elected but all income groups and castes and religions and gender will get equal opportunity to contest among the same group to get party office bearer position at any level- this will)
In order to have clarity for all the people it should be mandatory that all political parties should have office bearers of minimum of ten members (in the main organisation and if the political party wishes to have different specialty wings like SC, ST, MINORITY, WOMEN etc each wing also should have minimum 10 members covering all sub castes, tribes etc in the speciality departments) and multiples of ten should be induced in any level from village to national level, all the office bearers should cover all the castes, religions, gender, income groups in the propionate percentage at almost all the levels and the aggregate at district level and state level should be exactly match the proportionate the percentage of population of the respective categories. It should be ideal to have maximum of 20 members at the village and ward level (in every recognised political party) and also the equal number in mandal/block level; whereas at the district level about 40 to 60 members and at state level about 80 to 100 and at national level maximum of 100, at the same time maintaining the overall balance of castes and religious and gender at the district, state and national level. The uniform strength of office bearers in all political parties with same designation will create more responsibility in the parties for propaganda of the welfare schemes and also better reach out to the people on many issues will certainly benefit the people.
To represent the party at the village in each category the applications should be called for from the party active members with minimum of 6 years (mandatory criteria to ensure that people will have better understanding of the party activities) as a party primary member and do scrutiny and appoint by nomination from selecting among the applicants or the party district units should conduct meetings and take oral approval of the people present in each category; for the mandal representation on election should be mandatory, all village level data should be complied as per the castes and religion and age group and income group and provide nominations within each category covering all the aspects to get elected from among the eligible to contest in a preferential vote system, and the top two or three elected candidates in each category from the sitting as well as ex village office bearers should be nominated as the mandal party office bearers; similarly all mandals in district will follow the same procedure to elect the representatives from mandals in each category wise, the same procedure should be followed for the state and national level office bearers; all the vacancies in each level from the village to state level should be filled with co-opted nominated member from the vacant category only. It should be the prerogative of the apex executive general body to elect the president and other general secretaries from within the executive ensuring only 12 general secretaries, 24 secretaries should be elected; the work to the GS/SEC for acting as in charges allocation should rest with the president. In case of national parties the GS/SEC should ensure the state presidents are elected and the state body of GS/SEC in charge of districts should be constituted, and the state president should report to the GS/SEC in charge of that state; the state GS/SEC should be given district in-charges by the state president in consultation with the national GS/SEC; the state GS/SEC will ensure the election and appoint of district president, body of GS/SEC at their respective districts; similarly the state GS/SEC should allocate the in charge mandals for the district GS/SEC, for each mandal and village there should be only two coordinators elected by lottery one from male and other from women; these coordinators represent the village in the mandal level meetings, all the mandal coordinators represent the mandal in district meeting, at the state meeting the district presidents, at the national meeting all the state presidents, all the office bearers from village to national level should be informed to the election commission to obtain the identity card, these office bearers can represent the party in any public, government office for solving the issues.
Also it should be made mandatory the tenure till the state level should be maximum of two terms to represent as party office bearer, for national level it should be four to six terms. This method should be mandatorily followed by all political parties and should not be the prerogative of any political party the composition or selection of the office bearers or tenure of the office bearers, all should be done in systematic, uniform, democratic manner, will completely eliminate the domination of select few so called powerful castes in the political party organisations and upper echelons domination or rather ideal to say the dictatorship of the few select castes, founders of the political parties (mostly with the regional political parties, newly formed parties) and eliminates the selection of the party office bearers at the mercy of the founders of the political party founders or their kin & kith (a common syndrome in almost all the regional political parties) and also equal opportunity for all sections the representation in the party organisation and also completely elimination of mercy of some senior leaders or upper echelons to get elevation in the party as everything is in the form of election from within the category and the rules of contesting election are fixed and uniform for all sections and all levels and all political parties, also completely eliminates the existence of proxies of the upper echelons in different categories exist to have real representation of talent and people with commitment to serve the people and the office bearers are being elected in truly democratic manner. The above method will certainly bring the desired social change as it will certainly take programmes and policies of all political parties, governments to the people belong to all sections.
Also at each level a maximum of 20 % of the total strength of the sitting executive body members can be permitted to be nominated as co-opted members to represent the executive without any voting rights for participation in the council meetings and help in providing suggestions from eminent personalities in certain fields by the national president or state president on the approval of national council (GS& SEC)/ state council based on the recommendations of the national state councils for consideration to national executive, similarly based on the district council recommendations for the state executive for all positions and for all the district and lower level the discretion of the state council from among the recommended to the state council by the district council or otherwise on getting independent proposal. The ideal co opted persons should be either teachers/professors, lawyers, social activists etc.
(6) NEED FOR MANDATORY CONDITION FOR FOR CONTESTING ELECTION TO BECOME PARTY OFFICE BEARERS FROM MANDAL LEVEL ONWARDS ONLY BASED ON THE DEBATES, DISCUSSIONS AMONG THE CANDIDATES WHICH TO CONTEST, THERE PERFORMANCE SHOULD BE GAUGED FOR THEIR ABILITY LIKE KNOWLEDGE OF POLITICAL SYSTEM, ABOUT THE TERRITORY THEY REPRESENT, THERE FAMILY MANAGEMENT, THERE ABILITY TO MOBILISE PEOPLE ETC, AND FROM DISTRICT, STATE AND NATIONAL LEVEL SHOULD HAVE IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE OTHERS LIKE ARTICULATION OF IDEAS, THERE ORATOR SHIP, THERE; LEADERSHIP ABILITY IN CONTROLLING VARIOUS GIVEN SITUATIONS ETC; RE- NOMINATION WITHIN THE ELIGIBLE PERMITTED TERMS SHOULD BE ONLY BASED ON THE PERFORMANCE.
Since uniform criteria should be applicable to all people who wish to be part of the political organisations to ensure no biased or favouritism or nepotism takes place in the organisation positions of all political parties in order to ensure no kind of dictatorship should happen in the political system in any party organisation (as almost all the regional parties are at present undergoing this tragedy state of affairs), internal democracy is a must for all the political organisations, as such there should be fixed norms like at the village level only application from within the party active workers with minimum 6 years as a party worker, and scrutiny and some simple interview and select and appoint as office bearers, but from the mandal level on wards the positions in the party organisations should be through the election process from each category i.e castes, religion, gender and age and income group, so the applications for contesting from among the village level office bearers of all villages in the mandal are invited and the scrutiny for selection of the candidates to be in fray (maximum of 3 three people in each category for electing one person among the three in fray for that category), it should be made open debates, discussions on various issues from current politics, to regarding the programmes from the government for the villagers etc among all the people who wish to get contested in the presence of experts as well as village party office bearers of all categories to filter the applicants to three numbers in each category through a set of uniform procedure, to get elected among the category from all the village office bearers to represent the category in the mandal level office bearers; for district, state and national level in addition to discussions and debates among the preliminary contestants also the ability for articulation of ideas, there orator ship, their ability to mobilise people, galvanize different people, sets in the castes etc, should be applied to filter the candidates to three candidates to get elected by the respective people in the rank below that level, in this process the experts points to each one This method will completely eliminate the will and wish and mercy of the founders of the political parties, and this method should not be propriety of any single political party but should be applicable to all political parties.
(7) NEED FOR MANDATORY FIXED TIME FRAME FOR SELECTION OF OFFICE BEARERS AND FIXED TENURE OF OFFICE BEARERS; ALSO MANDATORY NEED FOR SUBMISSION OF DETAILS OF OFFICE BEARERS AT ALL LEVELS IN POLITICAL PARTY ORGANISATIONS TO THE ELECTION COMMISSION AND NEED FOR ELECTION COMMISSION TO ISSUE VALID IDENTITY CARDS FOR ALL OFFICE BEARERS OF ALL POLITICAL PARTIES
In order to ensure that all political parties maintain the guidelines for proportionate representation as per proportionate percentage of castes, religions, gender, age group and income group at all levels in the organisation it should be made mandatory that all political parties should submit the details of the office bearers to the election commission on stipulated time to ensure that all political parties will complete the process of select the office bearers at all levels in the fixed time frame (the time frame of three moths is ideal, should be applicable to all registered political parties)
Also all office bearers have fixed tenure, the tenure for the office bearers at the village level should be either six years or three years (discretion should be given to political parties); and from mandal level to national level should be mandatorily three years, also all office bearers and executive body members can represent a maximum of two times in any single level, so the second time also all the office bearers should be selected only through internal election, for the second time the election should be from mandal level only in case of six year tenure for the village level otherwise for village level should be called for fresh applications (may include the existing village level representation) to scrutiny in the fixed methods and election process should be initiated and completed in three months for all levels.
Also the election commission should issue the identity cards for all the party office bearers of all political parties at all levels based on the details submitted by the political parties on due selection of the elected candidates to various levels.
The above methods will certainly create a systematic approach in all matters in the political party organisations as in many political parties at present the composition of organisation is at the will and wish of the party apex (mostly for the regional parties as they are individual centric- hardly internal democracy prevails, thanks to the congress party for patronizing internal democracy);also it ensures that all party wings are active and organisation functions as it is necessary as per the present suggestions on implementation needs to take into consideration of opinions of the gross root party office bearers to take decisions by the party high command for allocation of party nomination to contest elections at various levels and also for party decision on various other matters of public importance, there should be right candidates as party office bearers at every level especially at grass roots. Also the details of the party office bearers should be kept on the website of the respective parties as well as in the website of the election commission for better access to the public and more transparency.
(8) NEED FOR BANNING TO PERSONS ACCUSED IN SERIOUS CRIMINAL CASES LIKE MURDER, RAPE, SERIOUS ECONOMIC FRAUD CASES WITH PENDING TRAIL, ALSO ALL CONVICTED PEOPLE IN ANY CASE ARE BARRED TO PROVIDING OFFICE BEARER POSITION IN ANY POLITICAL PARTY ORGANISATIONS AND NOMINATION OF CANDIDATES FOR ALL ELECTIONS (BY POLITICAL PARTY & INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES) ENSURE PEOPLE GET ELECT ONLY PEOPLE WITH CLEAN IMAGE TO REPRESENT THEM AT ANY LEVEL
In order to ensure that the political parties maintain the standards since they are going to rule to the territory on getting the mandate by the propaganda of the party programmes for the welfare and development of the people of the territory and development of the territory, and the party representatives on getting mandate will certainly be more powerful and influential in the territory, in order to ensure smooth function of the system in the respective territories, it should be mandatory that people with criminal track record should be barred to hold the party positions. The all accused and undergoing trail criminal charges like murder charge, rape charge, abduction charges, extortion charges, serious economic offences (like money circulation schemes, hawala, chit fund scams, cheating hundreds of share holders in companies etc, dubious companies, fake or duplicate products manufacturing without licence or with violation of licence etc), in government and private land grabbing offences, having SC & ST atrocities cases pending against them. All the accused on acquittal by the primary courts where the trail occurred can occupy the party position in the normal procedure. This will ensure that political party organisations are fairly clean.
(9) NEED FOR REGULATION OF POLITICAL PARTIES AND THE OFFICE BEARERS OF THE POLITICAL PARTIES EXHIBITING POSTERS AND BANNERS AT THEIR WILL AND WISH, COMPLETE BAN OF EXHIBITING INDIVIDUAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE OFFICE BEARERS IN THE POSTERS AND BANNERS; THERE SHOULD BE STANDARD DESIGN, SIZE APPROVED BY THE ELECTION COMMISSION, MANDATORY PERMISSION OF MUNICIPAL /REVENUE AUTHORITIES TO GET FIXED BY THE RESPECTIVE AUTHORITIES IN THE DESIGNATED LOCATIONS ON PAYMENT OF FIXED FEE ONLY.
In order to prevent/ curtail the existing nuisance value for the common public which is being created by the political parties mostly by local political office bearers and party activists of all political parties by affixing the posters and banners on several events like when some senior leaders visit their territory, or some festivals or on birth day functions of the founders or the party seniors or elected representatives of the territory etc etc, also some of the local leaders only for self publicity; these banners are getting tied and are exhibited in the electric polls, mid of the roads on few feet height by keeping temporary support on either side of the road, at the traffic islands and busy junctions and markets, even at the temples with big banners with their self photographs and contact numbers, this self publicity portraying as a leader is to develop the public relations mostly for self gains and also mostly for obtaining and doing the mediation (as a power broker) of litigations or disputes, clearing of pending files at the local level or issue of government certificates in a speedy manner, also to earn money in the pre text of getting the job done by show off they print the local elected representatives, big leaders and people in government and senior leader photos next to them (and in case work not done as in most cases the innocent people are victimised or making them roaming around them to return the money to the innocent people, the rise of corruption at the gross root government offices and local governments is mainly due to this type of some local leaders, also thee type of local leaders are hand in glow with local goons and small criminals and land grabbing and settlements are done by developing nexus with the local police and local officials, these small leaders who are involved in the illegitimate things are indirectly being encouraged by most of the political parties by giving free hand to them without any proper control (for ensuring they will maintain the party cadere at the local level i.e village, ward, mandal), on earning money by mostly illegal ways these small time leaders are becoming elected representatives at local governments and also some times the MLA’s and are becoming extortion and big land sharks and do bigger illegal trade and even illegal and sluggers through their kin & kith; so the small freedom (like a mole) is leading to this kind of big threat & burden to the society(like a mountain);, this become a competition and routine job for several local leaders; also during the public meetings and rallies and darnas and road shows conducted by the political parties the local leaders will do their exhibition of self banners in large scale sometimes with the permission of the party some times by self; this also become competition among various political parties; all these banners are becoming very dirty and crating traffic problems, accidents due to the eclectic wires falling or sudden falling of the banners on the motorists on the roads etc, also the look of the territory mostly the cities and towns becoming ugly, in order to prevent this kind of nuisance it should be made mandatory that all political parties are barred from free exhibition of banners, all exhibition of banners need the permission of local authorities and local authorities should designate fixed places for exhibition of banners in the standard designs as was specified and fixed by the government authorities, and the fixing of the banners should be done by the local municipal/revenue authorities on payment of fixed price; also the banners should be of standard design and to be permitted the party symbol and name of the candidates in small and only the party message should be exhibited; also making it mandatory that no party office bearers or leaders are permitted to exhibit self posters or banners or any posters or banners of party or on behalf of party, all such violations should lead to the suspension from the party primary membership for not less than one year; in case found was done by rivals within the party to fix some leaders, probe should be conducted both by the party as well as police complaint, once proved by the police such offenders should get rigorous imprisonment for not less than 5 years and barring such candidates from holding any political party primary membership. All party permitted banners at max can have the party president / founder photograph not to occupy more than 10 % of the space in the banner. These banners should be only use eco friendly cloth made and also use eco friendly inks, eco friendly threads to tie them.
Also there should complete ban on posters making it causes great negative impact on the environment by wasting the paper, for making paper cutting trees (the world is adopting save paper norms using paper less offices), also there will be lot of adhesives needed, also the paper posters are the feed for poor cows and goats and sheep’s and are dying due to indigestion of celloulose of the paper poster coupled with the semi poisonous adhesive material to it, as such there should be complete ban on the use of paper posters for political party campaign.
Also need to regulate the so called road shows, so called padayatars (which become a fashion for the political parties and select few leaders) causing great nuisance vale to the people, also making the people losing lacks and crores of man hours (productive working time), also causing traffic jams, also wasting lot of fuel due to idling of the vehicles in the traffic, also causing lot of pollution, also causing the dirtiness on the roads in the area where road shows are conducted or padyatars are made due to large gatherings of public throwing used water bottles, used water packs, plastic rappers of snacks and small eats, even sometimes urinals and most of the times spitting of pann/guka on the road side etc making the area and surroundings un hygienic, also causing the municipal staff additional burden; as such it should be made mandatory during non election time all political parties and individuals are barred to hold the rallies, road shows, and more particularly the padayatras, during election times only on weekends that too with pre permission; also should levy heavy initial fees for holding programmes on the grounds and open areas. This method will certainly useful to the common people as most of the common people are vexed with kind of cheap tricks and gimmicks of the leaders and political parties wasting the time and causing nuisance to the public by just using this shows to self propaganda and making allegations, counter allegations on each other political parties, which are of no use to the common people??????.
(10) NEED FOR BANNING POLITICAL “MOBOCRACY” BY RESTRICTING ONLY OFFICE BEARERS ARE ELIGIBLE TO AND PERMITTED BY ANY POLITICAL PARTY TO VISIT THE GOVERNMENT OFFICES FOR EXPRESSION OF ANY GRIEVANCES ETC (COMPLETELY BANNING MOB GOING ALONG WITH THEM); ALSO BANNING “MOBOCRACY” TO VISITING THE HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS, COLLAGES, OLD AGE HOMES ON THE PRE TEXT OF BIRTHDAY OR ANNIVERSARY OF THEIR LEADERS FOR THEIR PUBLICITY STUNT.
It is a common syndrome among all political parties that exhibition of “mobocracy” while visiting the government office for submission of memorandum on any issue and take the media for show of strength; in fact the leaders are also consciously aware that by this method nothing is going to change or happen with their memoranda, also almost all the times it is only a symbolic, they present the reservations of their territory to the concerned government official say MRO, RDO, District Collector or SP etc, mostly on matters of government decisions at the centre or state even though they knew that the MRO, RDO, collector cannot do anything to them as the decisions are taken by the elected governments at the centre or state, and these officials are subordinate officials working under the government in fact due to existence of soil system of administration no bureaucrat is dared to even express their displeasure in any manner in their capacity still including the elected representatives, party office bearers in higher ranks in the state body visit these officials or conduct darnas or protests in front of the officers of MRO, RDO, District Collector ????? How far it can be justifiable?????, it is acceptable to express their displeasure of the policies etc but there is no need to go in moabs and disturbing the working atmosphere of the office and inconvenience to the visiting public to these offices, also delay in the delivery of work to the public in the territory by these offices ????? As such it should be made mandatory that only designated office bearers, or only office bearers at that level not more than 10 people should visit the government office to submit any memorandum; also there should be complete ban on protests and darnas in front of the government offices by any political parties to ensure better functioning of the government offices and also avoid inconvenience to the common public for whom the political parties are in existence.
Also the case in more or less similar the “mobocracy” for getting more mileage and publicity with couple of hundreds of rupees, it is very un fortunate that some of the political parties it is a very cheap publicity stunt that the party office bearers at different level visit the hospitals, schools, old age homes orphanages, etc on the occasion of birthday or anniversary etc and distribute the fruits and take photographs and take the photographs or take the media and manage them to get video or photo graphed and aired, but the very unfortunate sad issue is that the party mobs visit the places of say a district government hospital with 300 beds, or orphanage of 300 children, the mobs spend some two hindered rupees on the fruits most of the times, and distribute to five to six patents and take photo or video graph from the media, as media cannot waste their film or time they will take only sample photos or videos and move away, soon the media moves away, the mob disappear from the places as they do not have the material to supply to al the people, but in the media in the local additions that so and so has distributed in the district hospital the fruits on the occasion of birth day of so and so great leader of their party??????, they do not mind in wasting petrol or diesel for the carrying the mob to the hospital or old age home or orphanage but they do not spend sufficient money, also this method causes inconvenience to the remaining patients due to mobs in the hospital premises, also there same is the case with orphanages and old age homes or schools, as such it should be made mandatory that only designated office bearers of that level only visit the hospital or orphanage or old age home and handover the material whatever they wish to distribute to the concerned authorities who are available at that time to distribute to the needy on the occasion of so and so, all political party office bearers including the ruling party should be barred to do directly on these premises any activity for not disturbing the peace in the hospital atmosphere.
(11) NEED FOR COMPLETE BAN OF ROAD BLOCKINGS, RAIL BLOCKINGS (RATA ROKOS, RAIL ROKOS), FORCEFUL SHOULD DOWN OF ESTABLISHMENTS (BUNDS) BY THE POLITICAL PARTIES ON ANY MATTERS AS TILL DATE THERE IS HARDLY ANY ISSUE RESOLVED THROUGH THIS METHOD, ALSO ONLY LEADING TO THE LOSS TO BUSINESS FOR THE INDIVIDUAL BUSINESS PEOPLE AND THE HOLE COUNTRIES ECONOMY AND ALSO EFFECTS THE DAILY WAGE PEOPLE TO EARN THERE LIVELY HOOD.
It is very unfortunate from national level to village level the mentality of most political parties are same, i.e very narrow mindedness, they conduct the road blockings, rail blockings, also the closure of the establishments and institutions, without any thought for what they are going to achieve are people gaining or losing because of there acts, will by doing so, do any government policies changed due the bands at anytime????, if one day lost by the students is a great loss, as they cannot get the gone time back????. Also as any intermediate student or other student appearing for entrance examinations/completion exams will tell how much mental pressure they undergo??? Also the business loss running into several hundreds and thousands of crores due to bunds can be compensated by the political parties, do the loss of the payment for the daily wage workers and making daily wage some of the daily wage workers spending that day in hunger due to lack of money for that being earned can be compostable by the political parties, the industrial production loss is a great loss to the economy and country hampering developmental and welfare activities, also sometimes due to non commitment of deadlines for supply of production may lead to loss of business to such individual organisations will the political parties able to compensate for such losses???The loss of travel time in the journey due to delay in the road journey or the entire traffic of the rails rescheduled due to blockage of rail in any section by any political party in any part will disturbed the whole zone of the railway by lead several hundreds of trains timings disturbed and some of the trains my get delayed for several hours due to small delay at some section caused due to rail rock?????? Do creation of inconvenience of passengers, passengers with kids, old age and patents suffer????; also this delay in journey may one times leads to loss of jobs for the people appearing for interviews in the government and private jobs, also some business delays may be lost by the business travellers, do the political parties can compensate these losses??????. Also the delays may lead to production losses in the process industries????? In case if they bluntly argued in the larger interest of the people to express the displeasure about government decisions, but it will be ok if any single case the government with drawn any major decision due to bunds??? So in case the ultimate moto of political parties is to serve the people and work for the betterment of the people is being bluntly violated by these political partiers????As such there should be complete ban of the road, rail blockades, and so called bunds to save the economy, to save the productive working hours, to save the mental agony of many sections of people in many ways, and also ensure the poorest of the poor the daily wage workers are not affected to achieve the real motto of the political party to serve the party. However all political parties can express their displease through darns at a fixed location designated for doing so if they wish the government polices are anti people, also discuss in the floor of the houses and let people know the voices and concerns and negative impact of the government policies, no elected governments by and large take negative impact decisions or policies implementation only there may be lacunas in the policies which can be rectified in due course through the pressure from the opposition political parties and people in a very decent and dignified and non disturbance to the common man or the country’s economy in a systematic, legitimate manner.)
(12) NEED FOR FIXED NUMBER OF TERMS FOR REPRESENTATION IN THE ELECTIONS FROM THE GRAM PANCHAYAT TO PARLIAMENT IN THE COUNTRY ENSURING OPPORTUNITY FOR MANY PEOPLE PERIODICALLY
Also it should be made mandatory through electoral reforms that fixed terms of representation in the elections from village to parliament. It should be made that an individual can be allowed to represent maximum of two times at the village or mandal or district level, each single level not more than two terms irrespective of political party the individuals represent. I.e if the individual representing any party in the election won the election at that level two times and takes the oath on two occasions at that level as member of that level, the individual is barred to contest third term in the same level, but is eligible to contest any next higher level only, than earlier representation level, further subjected to the next level maximum two terms of representation clause. This is applicable only to local body elections i.e gram panchayat/ ward, mandal parishad/block, zillaparishad/municipal Corporation. Also should fix the number of terms of representing the legislative assembly, legislative council and also parliament. Any individual can represent maximum of four terms for assembly irrespective of party he represents including both direct and indirect elections i.e lower house and upper house of the state as a member of legislative assembly/ legislative council. Similarly an individual can represent maximum of six terms for parliament both lower house and upper house of the parliament as a member of lok sabha / rajya sabha. Also the maximum age limit that one can represent in the elections at any level should be should be sixty five years at the time of contest of election i.e from gram panchayat to parliament. The maximum terms of representation clause are applicable to all independent candidates also. This is very ideal and necessary as the country has around seventy percent of the population is youth which needs a future vision.
Also the reason for gradual increase in the number of terms of representation at the elections is because the number of seats for parliament is limited in each state single or double digit numbers only, where as the assembly seats are in double and triple digit numbers depends up on the state, and local bodies seats running in hundreds and thousands in numbers depending on the states. As such, more opportunity at the entry level of peoples representation, where more number people have the opportunity over years, fulfilling maximum number of peoples wishes to represent the respective territory. In addition, the idea of gradual increase of number of terms from local body to parliament is to have most experienced is needed at the national level for making the policies for the whole country, moderate experience at the state level for making policies at state is required, coupled with fresh young blood at the local bodies.
(13) NEED FOR ALLOCATION OF TICKETS TO CONTEST IN ELECTIONS FROM GRAM PANCHAYAT TO PARLIAMENT IN A MIX OF FRESH CANDIDATES AT THE GP AND MIX OF EXPERIENCED AND FRESH FROM MANDAL LEVEL TO PARLIAMENT; NEED FOR PROVIDING TICKETS TO SUPER ANNULATED GOVERNMENT SERVANTS
Also it should be mandatory in the electoral system of the country to be followed by the all political parties issues eighty percentage of the tickets to contest at the village / ward level election should be given to fresh/first time candidates subjected to maximum terms of representation clause. As far as the mandal level elections are concerned thirty percent of the tickets should be given to fresh candidates to contest the election and seventy percent of tickets should be given for the experienced village level elected representatives either serving or retired, also from the ex-/sitting MLA/MLC. As far as the assembly elections are concerned twenty percent of the tickets should be given to fresh candidates to contest the election at assembly level and eighty percentage of the ticket to contest the assembly election should be given to village & mandal level elected representatives either serving or retired. In the 80 % experienced quota, the village representatives should be given 10% of the tickets and 70 % of the tickets to the representatives from the mandals and ex/sitting MLA/MLC, out of the total 70 % for the mandal elected representatives 30% and the remaining 40% from the sitting/ex-MLA/MLC, subjected to the maximum terms of representation of four terms as MLA/MLC. As far as the parliament elections are concerned forty percent of the tickets to contest the parliament elections should be given from the elected representatives from assembly, mandal and village, and forty percentage of tickets from sitting/ex members of parliament and remaining twenty percentage should be given to fresh/first time candidates out of 40 %, individuals 25 % of the tickets from assembly experience and 10 % of the tickets to mandal experienced individuals and 5 % for the village experienced individuals. In the 40 % from sitting/ ex members of parliament 30 % from the sitting and 10 % from the ex- members of parliament subjected to the maximum terms of representation of six terms, and twenty percent from the fresh young/experienced candidates.
Also it should be very ideal that supper annulated government, semi government, psu officials should be given chance to contest the elections either direct or indirect, preferably who worked more number of years in village and rural areas and won the public appreciation for their contribution to that area as government official. For example the postal officials, village and mandal level revenue officials who severed maximum years in that village / mandal are very ideal to be part of at the gram panchayat level, similarly the ex-civil servants/ bureaucrats who served maximum tenure at the state are ideal for state legislative assembly/ council and and those who served more at the central government are ideal for the upper house of the parliament. This measure will enable that at all level a mix of well experienced seniors and talented young representatives a truly successful combination.
(14) NEED FOR MAKING MANDATORY CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTANCE OF RE NOMINATION IN THE ELECTIONS BY ELECTION COMMISSION OF ANY ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE WHETHER REPRESENTING ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR AN INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE ONLY BASED ON THE PERFORMANCE AS AN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE, THE PERFORMANCE CAN BE DETERMINED BASED ON THE PARAMETERS LIKE NUMBER OF VISITS HE MADE TO THE CONSTITUENCY, TIME SPENT IN EACH VILLAGE, NO OF ISSUES SOLVED, TOTAL NUMBER OF REDUCTION IN THE BPL FAMILIES, PERCENTAGE RISE IN EACH INCOME GROUP OF PEOPLE LIVING IN THE CONSTITUENCY DURING THERE TERM OF REPRESENTATION.
In order to ensure that all elected representatives work for the people for getting elected by majority of the people, and also as most of them wish to get re nomination from the political parties or get contest as independent candidate for the second term from the same constituency or other for the same level or higher level of the election, in order to get the eligibility to contest for the second time for any elected representative there should be fixed criteria for getting validity to contest election to re represent the people for one more term, (of course this method should be in addition to right to recall – which if people think that the elected representative is gravely mis- utilizing /behaving the position or unfit to represent them, than can only indirectly evoke this right to re call through the approval of majority of grass root elected representatives for any level of elected representative – if the suggestions are implemented), the points which should determine the re nomination validity are the elected representative should have at least 75 % attendance on the floor of the house ( which means out of the total number of hours of the function of the house 75% of time, certainly not just the number of days of the attendance of days- otherwise the elected representatives come put attendance and vanish from the floor of the house); at least the elected representative might have spoken in the parliament on the issues of the territory or region he/she represents; also the elected representative must tour all the villages he/she represent in a calendar year at least once, the time spent in each village in a calendar year, the number of issues solved in a year out of the total petitions received from the people in a year, the accessibility to the people based on number of hours he/she was in the constituency office of any elected representative (in case of an MP, their own office, all the MLA offices in the constituency, all the mandal presidents office in the constituency, all gram panchayat offices in the constituency), the income of the individual elected representative and the family income should not have been grown beyond 20 % per year of the total salary income per year (only the capital gains in case of appreciation of already declared property as per government fixed norms can be exceptional cases to be eligible if and only if they are legitimate as was NOC was given by the income tax department in this regard); all these should be applicable to all the elected representatives of all levels from gram panchayat to the parliament; while to the assembly and parliament elected representatives in addition to the above they should also be subjected to the criteria for re nomination approval to contest the next election is the number of people he/she was able to up lift, i.e rise in the level of the income status of the BPL families, lower income group., low middle income group, to next level of income group from their present level. In other words the percentage of reduction of BPL families should be at least 20 % in a span of four calendar years i.e 5 % of the BPL families should be up lifted to at least lower income group through the elected representatives’ hardship. In the absence of the above criteria for seeking acceptance of re nomination to contest election for the second term and more by any elected representative is nothing but criminal???????????, as was said by Dr B R AMBEDKAR the Chief constitutional architect of India, ”ONLY LAMBS ARE SACRIFICED, TIGERS WERE NOT” keeping in view the gross injustice done to the downtrodden sections due to political power being concentrated, enjoyed by only few sections in the society; it suits till date as most of the elected representatives wish to stick to the power by re nomination to remain in power forever.. for all such cases most of the people are of the opinion it is something similar comparison that if a tiger eats a man once it is called “man eater tiger”, once got the taste of flesh of a man, the man-eater tiger always wishes to have man flesh, also in search of the flesh of the man??????????????, like wise once elected as a elected representative most of the elected representatives will get the taste of power and wishes to be as an elected representative in one or other form and try to remain in power till they die, before dying they will leave the power to the kin & kith, (of course most of this generation politicians are rising their kin & kith well in advance before they die (as there not sure of there long live in their life due to their conscious tells that they are doing sins by suppressing downtrodden or squeezing, swindling the public money in one or other form?????????--- this is universal phenomenon not only in our country but throughout the world in several countries the elected representatives one got elected wishes to continue even in the most developed super power nation like USA in one or other manner????????????- However one cannot be accepted in India as our country is one of the largest democracy so if wrong is happening in all places means it is acceptable to our country is very wrong?????? Rape is a rape anywhere in the world?????????,) in our country if parents are in elected representatives in parliament, then kin & kith are in assembly, if parents are in assembly then kin & kith are in local governments ????, almost all these kind of cases are totally upper echelons and elite irrespective of caste??????????) This manner is totally against to the true democratic principles and spirit of democracy?????? Taking un due advantage in the name of / cover of democracy and justifying their self centred selfish acts telling they are being elected by the people are nothing but most sinful crime in the court of almighty?????? All elected representatives need to have real self introspection to the core of the heart to realise the fact????????As it is a fact and an open secret that mostly people in fray who got elected only because of party symbols, only very few people in fray get elected due to their own charisma ???????????; this was grossly ignored by almost all the political parties and doing is gross injustice to the people of the country done by almost all the political parties by providing the tickets to contest only to the candidates only based on the criteria of win-ability (for them win ability mostly means the person having financial ability or persons who can mobilise large-scale funds to spend in the election) as the criteria fixed by almost all the political parties, for win ability the money power alone or sometimes money power coupled with muscle power is needed all these are only with upper echelons and few select castes as stated in the beginning of the document as such the tickets are given to the power and mighty having financial strength, that means only people who are having money power can only have the power to make the laws for the remaining people of the county ??????????, the people with money are mostly capitalistic mentality, to gain maximum profit out of the investment made ??????????????????, as such for them the priority is how to gain personally more using their position as electred representative in one or the other way, for them the service to the people is not at all the bother ???????????? but to remain in power by doing all sorts of lip service and show put ups and gimmicks with road shows, padayaters (which become a fashion for many political leaders especially regional parties) etc????????, and also they feel the territories they represent are like their business empires as such they wish to extend their legacy to their kin & kith as in the case of normal traditional business people??????????? this method of providing the tickets to winnable candidates by most of the political parties are nothing but allowing “INVEST TO WIN AND GET INVISIBLE PROTECTIVE LICENCE TO EARN” concept, permitting the elected representatives to earn as much possible as per the ability/capacity to do so during their term?????????????, since the laws are made by the same upper echelon elite group they protect themselves in one or the other way by “citing law will take its own course” when corruption cases especially related to political leaders are pending for decades?????, this is almost similar like the HIT AND RUN VEHICLES ON THE HIGHWAYS, where hardly anybody caught and convicted in the hit and run accent cases in high ways where several hundreds of people are dying every day, some people are comparing the above likewise the case is same that “INVEST TO WIN AND GET INVISIBLE PROTECTIVE LICENCE EARN” (this concept is knowingly endorsing by most of the political parties as they are giving party nominations only to people with money or so called powerful castes or elite in the pre text of need for win for want of majority to form governments – the as every licence for business has some fee, here also the invisible protective licence has certain fee, the fee is whatever earned certain part need to be given for the party development fund mostly in black, or sponsor some party programmes etc (of course even till date because of select few hardcore honest leaders exists in some of the political leadership as well as elected representatives as such the governments are running at least for the welfare of the people is being taken case to some extent and country is in progress- heartfelt thanks to all such tall leaders in the country - otherwise country could be in docks, it could be like some of the African countries- also many people especially youth are expressing heartfelt thankful for the initiative and boldness and generosity of the youth icon of the Congress party for his words “we i.e congress party, its leadership will bring the DESIRED CHANGE, REFORMS IN THE SYSTEM for the betterment of the people of the country, betterment for the youth of the country, and not compromise and fall in the number game, whether we are in power or opposition dose not mater, welfare of the people are important to the congress party rather than to remain in power, we will bring clean image to the political system”) also many people has apprehensions that the above method might be well adopted by most of the elected representatives in the country belong to various political parties, as they are investing and there official declarations shoes average growth of income is 300 % in just five years, as at fist instance these type of elected representatives have to recover the investment made in the election to get elected, second to make savings for next election investment as year by year, election by election the election expenditure is increasing, hardly people will get caught and convicted, if lot of pressure on serious charges, the individual members in the government caught to the existing laws implementation them they (very minute that the elected members are caught whose incomes are growing in exponential rate in their tenure ????????) will be imprisoned for some time and will be free on bail and will take the cases for decades or will go way due to political coalition compulsions as per the political experts this is the era of coalition governments for at least next few decades, so the trend is going to continue for few more decades in the absence of the said all suggestions, the case is same in most of the governments, most of the political parties ?????????????, many people are of the doubtful opinion that “ARE PEOPLE OF INDIA ARE ADMINISTERED AND LIVING IN MODERN DRACONIAN ERA IN THE FACE OF DEMOCRACY OR TRULY DEMOCRATIC ERA” ??????, as in DRACONIAN ERA POWER AND MIGHTY BECOME KINGS AND RULERS, WHAT EVER THEY DO IS JUSTIFIABLE AND OTHER PEOPLE ARE AT THERE MERCY AND ARE LIKE SLAVES, ARE ONLY BORNE TO SERVE THEM AND BECOME MUTE SPECTATORS FOR THERE ATROCITIES, WHERE AS REAL DEMOCRACY IS EQUAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL SECTIONS OF PEOPLE IN THE POLITICAL POWER; As such by implementing the above mentioned minimum criteria for re nomination of any elected representative at any level , especially for the assembly and parliament will certainly bring the desired change, also eliminates the perils among the people to a great extent regarding the existence of draconian democracy; as such THESE MINIMUM NORMS FOR RE NOMINATION WILL BE A REAL GAME CHANGER OF SOCIO- ECONOMIC POLITICAL DYNAMICS OF THE COUNTRY.
(15) NEED FOR FIXING MINIMUM AGE FOR PARTY PRIMARY MEMBERSHIP, MINIMUM PERIOD AS A MEMBER OF ANY POLITICAL PARTY TO CONTEST ELECTIONS FROM GRAM PANCHAYAT TO PARLIAMENT
In order to ensure that the party ideologies are being adopted properly by the individuals for the better service to the people it is necessary that every party should make it mandatory minimum age of 21 years for becoming a primary member; also it should be mandatory for for all primary members with minimum six years of experience is necessary mandatory criteria to become office bearers at any level. In addition also it should be mandatory for the political parties to allocate the party representation only for all party primary members with at least 6 years to ensure that all the individual members in the party understand the party ideologies, also this measure will certainly prevent from shifting the parties as per the personal political gains by the elected representatives by leaving the party in the mid of the elected term or soon after the completion of the term (to avoid the anti incumbency or to go with the wave of the people); this method will certainly reducing the party jumping’s, so called horse tradings in the political system, also improves values and more dedicated work as elected representative to get re nomination for next election from the same party.(as suggested in this document barring independent elected representatives from joining the government or holding any nominated position in the government and also can extend only outside support only- so many people in principle parties will certainly stick to the respective party and do more dedicated work to develop the respective territory) there should be exception only to the super annulated (retired at age 60+) from government service.
(16) NEED FOR MANDATORY ALLOCATION OF TICKET FROM GRAM PANCHAYAT TO PARLIAMENT ONLY FOR THE LOCAL RESIDENTS IN THAT RESPECTIVE TERRITORY FOR MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS AS PER THE ELECTION VOTER IDENTITY CARD; MIGHT HAVE LIVED AT LEAST 200 DAYS IN EVERY CALENDAR YEAR FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS
Also it should be made mandatory through electoral reforms that any individual shall be allowed to contest at any level, only in the territory of residence/living of the individual. I.e if the individuals are living in an area, they are eligible to contest only to the gram panchatay/ward, only to the mandal, only to the assembly constituency, only to the parliament constituency where the residential address is falls under/ covered by the respective territory i.e gram panchayat, mandal parishad, assembly segment, parliament segment (the individual who wish to contest should be living in that area where his statutory government voter id cards are obtained with the address falling in that territory for more than 7 years before the contest of the election). Also it should be mandatory that the individual should be local in that territory where he/she wishes to contest, i.e residing more than seven years in that territory where he/she wish to contest any level election; in addition also it should be mandatory that in each calendar year minimum of 200 days in the local area address for considering as a local candidate; this principle will be applied to direct election only. This principle is applicable to indirect elections also with slight modification. I.e upper house i.e legislative council and rajya sabha of parliament, only individuals belonging to the respective state i.e resident of the state/district for over seven years only should be eligible to represent the state in the upper house. This principle will be applicable to all candidates who are contesting independently. The above method will ensure that only people who are dedicated for the service of the people in the territory, available to the people only will get the ticket to contest, get elected and present the people, else majority of the people who are city centric, or capital city centric of the state /nation and getting tickets and getting elected due to party symbol and vanishing from the area they represent with rare occasional symbolic presence on select few days in a year, hardly bother about the local issues in the territory where they represent, also some NRI’s making flying visits before elections and getting party nominations through their management tactics and getting elected mostly due to the party and fancy election expenditure, and certainly not available to the local people (only available to high fy people, big business people and socialites for their self interests and enjoyments????????), also in this process the hard working real party activists who are awaiting for their turn to get their turn to represent the party for decades are being deceived by majority of the recognised political parties???????
(17) NEED FOR CONDUCTING ALL THE ELECTIONS I.E LOCAL BODY, ASSEMBLY AND PARLIAMENT AT THE SAME TIMES TO REDUCE THE EXPENDITURE DUE TO CONDUCT OF DIFFERENT ELECTIONS AT DIFFERENT TIMES
It is a fact that for conduct of elections lot of expenditure will occur for the government (also to political parties and candidates), and also lot of working hours of the government machinery is needed; as such by conducting elections at different times for the local body, assembly and the parliament is literally un necessary wasteful public expenditure; as such all the three elections should be conducted at the same time period to prevent the waste of public money?????????; in case of difficulty due to the different states have valid governments at the state level to conduct the assembly and parliament elections at the same time; then parliament elections can be conducted at a single time, where as local body elections and assembly elections should be conducted at the same time as there is provision in the constitution that local governments can be ruled by the executives in the absence of the elected local governments which will not have much impact on the local governance, in fact the same provision is being used by many political elected governments to protect the anti incumbency and conduct the local government elections at there own will and wish. This method of assembly as well as local body elections at the same time will certainly reduce wasteful expenditure to 1/3 and also useful for better governance by creating better relations among the elected representatives.
(18) NEED FOR RECOVERY OF ELECTION EXPENDITURE FROM THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WHO ARE RESIGNING FROM THERE POSITION AS ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE IN THE MID OF THE TERM DUE THERE OWN PERSONAL REASONS ACCORDING TO THERE WIMS AND FANCIES, AND RE CONTESTING ELECTIONS IN THE BY ELECTIONS FROM THE SAME CONSTITUENCY/PARTY, OR LATER DATE BY ALLOWING THERE KIN TO CONTEST, OR THEIR PARTY FIELD ANOTHER CANDIDATE TO CONTESTING IN THE BY ELECTIONS, SUCH ADDITIONAL EXPENSES OF THE PUBLIC EXCHEQUER SHOULD BE RECOVERED THROUGH PROPERTY ATTACHMENT, OR KEEPING IN IMPRISONMENT IN CASE OF NON PAYMENT OF DEMURRAGES, ALSO DE BARRING THE CANDIDATE AND THERE IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS TO CONTEST ANY ELECTION FOR AT LEAST 30 YEARS IN CASE OF NON PAYMENT OF DEMURRAGES
It become a fashion for some of the elected representatives to resign from the position of elected representatives several times and re contest from the same constituency several times during the valid period of term of the elected house due to various personal reasons certainly to show their clout or there height of arrogance that they only win in the constituency due to what so ever reason and making the government machinery and public exchequer money is being wasted for their self centred selfish acts, as due to this kind of by elections not only the government machinery is loosing precious productive working man hours, but also for the common public in that territory in many ways?????????; as such the government must make laws in such a manner that the resignation from the elected representative position should have valid reasons (the valid reasons should be standard as was fixed by the government uniform for all and are in permanent in nature), in case the valid reasons are not sighted and abstain from the floor of the house in the working period of the house or stopped working in the constituency as public representative should be liable to be dismissed from the public representative position; also the re election expenditure should be recovered from the resigned candidate within one month from the resignation through attachment and sale of the properties of the elected representatives and there family members. In case the auction process doesn’t got the required money towards the expenditure of the re election then the resigned elected representative should be imprisoned; also it should be made mandatory that all the candidates, there family members of the resigned elected representative should be barred from contesting the by election. (in case of death of the elected representative during the mid of the term – in such cases only the family members of the deceased elected representative should be allowed to contest the election); this measure will certainly bring the desired change in the attitude of the public representatives and behave more responsibly?????????? Also this method saves lot of public money from getting wasted due the whims and fancies of elected representatives.
(19) NEED FOR MANDATORY CONDITION OF 10 % OF THE PEOPLE TO SUPPORT THE CANDIDATURE TO CONTEST THE ELECTIONS FROM GRAM PANCHAYAT TO PARLIAMENT AS WITHOUT WHICH ELIMINATION OF DUMMIES AND NON SERIOUS CANDIDATES
In the event of proportionate representation as per the income group it may provide opportunity for all people equal right and enthuastic of contesting elections being more optimistic and believing in miracles will happen (as majority of them approach local god men), or also since majority of the people are wooed by the upper echelons as their proxies to contest elections, and also to divide the votes. All these will make sure there will be numerous nominations which will be a of big issue for the election commission, administration and common public (due to their campaign) and also more confusion for the voters; as such there should be a system in place to contain this drawback of the system and also ensure only serious contenders are in the fray; as such it should be made mandatory that all the people who wish to contest the elections should have at least 10% of the peoples backing for contesting the election; in case of the GP, Mandal or Assembly or Parliament every candidate should file an affidavit signed by the supporters with their voter ID card number, only the nominations with 10% candidates support should be eligible to contest the election in that level (all registered political parties should get the nomination backed by party active members in the territory, all independent candidates and unrecognised political parties from the individual citizens, the affidavit date and time at the registration office will be taken into consideration in case of same citizens’ endorse for more than one candidate, also in case registered party members endorses the individual candidate or unrecognised party or other then their own party member then the individual of the registered party should lose the party membership for next 5 years to be in any recognised party as a member and not eligible to hold any nominated positions or party nominations for next 5 years) this will certainly reduce the number of candidates contesting election; also it should be made mandatory that the winning candidate should get approval of the at least 51 % of the peoples approval to represent them, in case the election results will not get the required 51% of votes to any candidate of the polled votes then the election should be made between the top two candidates to finalise the election result; also the election should be valid only if the total votes polled is not less than 80 % of the total votes in that territory (otherwise there should be re-poll). In order to ensure all eligible people vote the government must make it mandatory failure to cast the vote should lead to increase in the PDS material costs for the family, also the increase in the tariff for the electricity and mobile phone (more ideal to de activate the mobile phone for few years), for a period of not less than two years will certainly ensure every citizen will cast their vote and the percentage of voting will certainly be above 95% (with exception to the people gravely sick and gravely ill-health- also some provision should be there to ensure they too caste the vote through the video conference through mobile or tablet phone) The above measures will certainly make all the village/ mandal/ assembly level elected representatives to work dedicatedly in their respective territory with the hope that they will get an opportunity to represent at the district level, state / national level.
The above measures minimizes the possibilities of elected representatives inclination towards corrupt practices, as all elected representatives at the grassroots will work more dedicatedly in their respective territory, to grow in carrier, to represent zillah, assembly and parliament.
(20) NEED FOR MANDATORY SUPPORT OF MINIMUM 2% OF THE POPULATION OF THE TERRITORY TO REGISTER AS A POLITICAL PARTY TO ENSURE STANDARDS ARE MAINTAINED, IN CASE POLITICAL PARTIES WISH TO CONTEST IN LIMITED TO CERTAIN REGIONS, TERRITORY THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO GET REGISTERED TO CONTEST ONLY IN THOSE REGIONS, TERRITORY.
To start any political party it should be mandatory that minimum 2 % of the population of the state/region should give in writing in an affidavit in the standard format with voter id number and signature, alternatively in case of parties to be recognized, interested in contesting in the limited number of constituencies, they should obtain the 2 % support from a minimum at least 1/10 of the total strength of assembly. However in the second case only those constituencies in that particular region/ territory will be allowed to contest by that party as registered political party in the state. In case of failure to secure 2 % of the total voters in their favour for getting a common symbol, the parties are not treated as registered parties (for failure to obtain the symbol) and should be treated as independent candidates and all the conditions of the independent candidates should be applicable to the candidates of that group. All the details will be submitted by the proposed political party in the standard format ward wise. In case of any duplication of the supporters list, the parties are given time to re present the list in a given time period. In the limited registered party with symbol only such constituencies as eligible for getting the common symbol., will be allowed to contest and have any seat sharing and pre alliance only in that particular constituencies only. Remaining conditions are uniform for all the political parties. Also those political parties can campaign for the alliance only in those limited constituencies only. All the existing political parties need to go through this system for getting re recognization. Failure to obtain the minimum support from the people, the allotted common symbols to the political party should be withdrawn by de registering that party, should be treated as independent candidates, all conditions applicable to the independent candidate holds good.
(21) NEED FOR ISSUE OF TICKETS FOR CONTESTING ELECTIONS AT ANY LEVEL BY THE RECOGNIZED POLITICAL PARTIES ONLY THROUGH THE INTERNAL DEMOCRATIC WAY BY GIVING RESPECT FOR THE OPINION OF THE GRASS ROOT PARTY OFFICE BEARERS FOR ESTABLISHING REAL DEMOCRACY (AS GRASS ROOT PARTY ACTIVISTS KNOWN MORE ABOUT THE CANDIDATES ABILITY TO SERVE THE PEOPLE ON GETTING ELECTED THAN DECIDING THE CANDIDATE IN CLOSED ROOMS BY THE PARTY APEX BASED ON MOSTLY BIASED REPORTS OF THE SELECT FEW DISTRICT & STATE LEADERS, OF COURSE IN MAJORITY OF THE CASES JUST BECAUSE OF PARTY SYMBOL CANDIDATES ARE GETTING ELECTED AND NOT REALLY DOING THE SERVICE SUPPOSED TO DO FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE TERRITORY AS WELL TO THE PARTY ACTIVISTS, - ARE MOSTLY INVOLVED IN RECOVERY PROCESS OF THE INVESTMENT MADE DURING THE ELECTIONS IN ONE OR OTHER MANNER THIS ISSUE IS ISSUE IN ALL RECOGNISED POLITICAL PARTIES)
Also it should be mandatory that all the political parties’ issues tickets to candidates to contest any election only by conducting the internal election for the selection of the candidates to represent them at that level, to have absolute democracy in the party lines (else majority of the political parties are totally autocratic, or benevolent autocratic and the tickets are decided only at the apex and the meaning of democracy is being murdered and the party activists at the grass roots are used more or less like polished call girls, as the party gross root workers and activists are used for the mass gathering and darnas and protests and burning effigies and doing vandalism in some cases by some parties by just carrying the flag of that party, not even majority of the party workers know what about the party policy or the candidates who was nominated by the party??????); all political parties should start selection of the candidates to contest elections 6 months before the election due date by inviting the applications for the selection by fixing the standard uniform procure for all the categories i.e the fresh candidates, from the GP, from the Mandal, from the MLA/MLC for the respective GP, MANDAL, ASSEMBLY/ PARLIAMENT elections and finalise 5 names for the internal election. (all the application merits and de merits should be kept on the web site for more transparency); the merits and de merits of the top 5 candidates should be printed in a paper and circulated to the party office bearers at the village/ GP level, also the five candidates should be kept debates in each village/mandal for expressing their views to the party office bearers in that village/mandal for better understanding them, also the income, assets, there view /plan to develop the territory, etc and the party office bearers should vote for the preference of the candidates as per the public opinion they gathered from the public in their village, and the top two preferences should be sent to the party district & state heads to provide their assessment about the top two candidates; based on the opinions of the district and state units opinion the Central high command (in case of national parties, regional high commands foe regional parties) should decide the nomination of the candidate for representing party in the election.
(22) NEED FOR MANDATORY RESTRICTION OF ISSUE OF PARTY TICKET TO ONLY ONE MEMBER IN A SINGLE FAMILY, BORN FOR ONE FATHER SHOULD BE THE CRITERIA (EVEN IN CASE OF FATHER REMARRIES DUE TO ANY REASON) BOTH IN THE ELECTORAL SYSTEM AS WELL AS PARTY IN ELECTION AT ANY LEVEL, WITH SLIGHT EXCEPTION TO FREEDOM FIGHTERS FAMILY TO REPRESENT IN THE PARTY IN ADDITION TO THE ELECTORAL SYSTEM
Also it should be mandatory electoral reform, restraining all political parties to issue to party tickets to represent party to only one person in the family in election, at any one level of choice. I.e either husband, or wife or father or mother or son or un married daughter or daughter-in-law, one brother, one sister in a family are eligible to contest one election at any level from gram panchayat to parliament, i.e only one person in the family can be eligible to contest both in direct (lower house) and indirect elections (upper house) at any level from village to national i.e from gram panchayat to parliament... In case of married daughters if the in-laws family i.e husband, father–in law, mother-in law, brother-in law, sister- in law are not representing the same party then, even thought father or mother or brother is an elected representative of the party, the married daughter can be eligible to get ticket by the party for being the surname changed respecting the Indian culture and tradition. No two brothers or no two sisters born for single parent (one father), should be given ticket at any level, restricting only one brother should be allowed if other family members are not representing the same party. This principle holds good for independent candidates’ also. I.e of any recognised political party provides ticket to any individual of the family, any of the remaining family members nomination as independent candidate is barred to contest election at any level. Similarly if any candidate represents as a elected member at any level, family members belong to that individual is restrained to represent any political party/ to contest as an independent candidate in any election during the valid term of the elected candidate irrespective of whether the candidate is independent or representing any political party. This measure will be applicable to independent candidates contesting independently. In case if the any individual represents any level as an elected member, then the other family members of the individual are restrained to contest election as an independent candidate at any other level of election during the period of the validity of term of the independent member. This measure is necessary to control corruption by monopolising the districts, state by man number of families irrespective of political parties. Also this measure will allow lot of fresh and new blood to come into politics.
Also it should be mandatory through electoral reforms to restrain from being a member of government of any level and also any nominated position (local or state or central government) in case from elected members belong to same family /belong to one family i.e with relationship of either father, mother, son, un-married daughter, daughter in law, wife, husband, brother & sister born for same father same mother or may be different mother due to second marriage) even though contested in different political parties for different levels (local body, assembly, parliament), they can remain as just members of those houses only for the whole tenure of that house. This measure is necessary because people belong to same family contesting for same/different positions from different political parties just to remain in the power corroders and enjoy the power for the benefit of the family members.
(23) NEED FOR FIXING MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TERMS AN INDIVIDUAL CAN REPRESENT ANY LEVEL AS AN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE, RESTRICTING OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS TO REPRESENT THE SAME LEVEL AS ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE FIXED NUMBER OF TERMS TO PREVENT MONOPOLY OF SELECT FEW FAMILIES IN THE TERRITORIES, TO PREVENT EXISTENCE OF NEO FEUDALISM IN THE MASK OF DEMOCRACY
Since many people have the opinion / presumption about the common syndrome of almost all the political parties that since a few select individuals become politician/ elected representative by luck few decades back (for all those who are not belonging to freedom fighters families- as everyone has to give due respect to the freedom fighters family for the reason their elders got our country freedom) will it be the birth right of select few individuals or select few families to represent the territory, also some of the politicians hold the positions in the governments or constitutional positions till they die????, before they die they implant their kin in the party & government appropriately????? Is it real democracy??? Or do other people in the country do not have talent, or do other people in the country not competent enough to occupy the positions in political parties / governments????? Do politics are hereditary, are more or less like genetically modified seeds or genetically engineered seeds in cultivation as once the seeds are planted in the soil they are terminator genes ensures that only GM/GE seeds are needed to cultivate from the second and crop on wards????? These GE/GM crops have adverse effect on the soil by faster depleting the natural soil fertility and generates more pests, likewise these kind of elected representative swindle the money in one or ther from meant for the development of the territory or resources in the territory and also encourage the so called followers or chelas to make money in the process by any king of atrocities on the weaker sections and down trodden????????? Also these GE/GM crop yield has effect on human heath as many scientific tests proven them, in addition only very expensive for the crop rises to put more fertilizers, pesticides, and are only advantageous for the manufacturers and business people, likewise the case is almost same with politicians of such nature are of no much use for the people except for the few select kin & kith, or business people, also for the success in election of such candidates the political parties need to spend more money as they do not really enjoy the mass support from the bottom of the heart of the people of the territory?????? As majority of the kin & kith of such leaders who are in fray are mostly possess ego, lower view for common people as they are mostly moved in the upper echelons circles from their schooling to till such date of nomination and got elected, it adds further once elected???? Also most of them possess height of arrogance as they are grown up when their parents in the highest positions as elected representative/in the government with all orderly & servants at their disposal certainly are brought up in a pampered manner?????, mostly posses all expensive, luxurious habitats in personal life in the name of so called socialites, but appear sober in public life as social service????? (most of people belong to the families of freedom fighters have at least some discipline in them); this syndrome of rising kin & kith in the political system has spread to even the second time elected representatives in the state level by already reserving seats for their kin & kith in the respective territory either in the same party or some other parties mostly the newly formed parties????? Or if they are present mp/mla then they wish to try for minister/ constitutional position/mp from themselves and they wish to give their sitting MLA seat to their kin, or they wish their kin to contest as comparator o get elected as mayor???? Or at least district youth president or state/national youth office bearer????? What a kid of democracy prevailing in our political system??????/ do people of our country living in a real democracy or neo feudalism in the mask of democracy????? Do the sacrifices of our freedom fighters are for these kind of situation?????; to the surprise many of these kind of leaders who wish to rise their kin & kith dare to compare themselves with freedom fighters families ??????? As such there should be mandatory restriction that only one in the family should hold only one position either in party or government (with exception to freedom fighters family members); also government must establish laws for ensuring that the territory which the elected representatives represent is not the jamindari territory and the elected representatives are not jamindars to carry out hereditary and elected representative is only to serve the people of and not the people of the territory to serve the elected representative family for generations like bonded labour ????????; as such government must make limited tenure for elected representatives and barring the family members to represent the territory for certain period.
As such it should be mandatory through electoral reforms, restraining all political parties to provide ticket, to the maximum number of terms of representation of that level, to contest election at the level, to the candidates belonging to same family, whose family member already completed maximum permitted number of terms allowed by law at that level as elected member of that level. I.e in case of local body level i.e gram panchayat/ward, mandal perishad/block, zilla parishad/municipal corporation, if any individual completes two terms at any single level, for example at the gram panchayat level, the family members of the individual who completed two terms as a member of gram panchayat, are restricted to contest the same gram panchayat for next two terms i.e for 10 years in general. Likewise if an individual completes maximum permitted term of four terms as MLA, the family members of the individual should be restrained to contest the same MLA constituency next four terms i.e next 20 years representing any political party or as an independent candidate, where the MLA completed maximum permitted terms. But the individuals’ family members can contest in any other assembly constituency subjected to the local residence clause and other clauses. Similarly for the parliament elections if the individual completes maximum permitted terms of representation i.e six terms as Member of Parliament, the family members of the individual should be restrained to contest from the same parliament constituency for next six terms i.e next 30 years either representing any political party or as an independent candidate. (also to restrict that the kin i.e married son and not the case of un married daughter if living separately for more than 7 years in any territory adjacent to that constituency only can be eligible to contest the adjacent territory as a local candidate) Also in case any individual gets into next level without completing maximum number of terms permitted at that level, as long as he is is member, other family members are restrained from contesting elections at any level. In case the individual who represents as member at any level dies without completing the term, the remaining period of that term can be eligible to contest by the immediate family members of the deceased individual either representing any political party or as an independent candidate for the remaining period in the maximum permitted terms left over, counting the term of the deceased. For example an MLA died in the middle of the third term, then his family members are allowed to contest from the same seat, but on successful completion of the third term, the member from the same family will be allowed to represent for only one more term for the same assembly constituency. This measure is necessary to free the constituency from monopoly of the family. This principle will be applicable to independent candidates also, restricting the family members of the independent candidates to contest that level of election, to the maximum permitted terms as per the above principle.
Also it should be made mandatory that in case more than one family member contests from any constituency in the assembly as an independent candidate or representing many registered parties and won the elections, in case the party which any one of the family member representing the government on getting mandate, then the elected representatives whose other family members (father, mother, brothers, wife, husband, sons, un married daughters, or daughter in laws or grandson from the son side) representing the same assembly or the parliament from the same state then such elected representative in the party which is forming government should be barred from holding the cabinet position or be part of the government; as in order to keep the family in power most of the political families deliberately making other family members to be party of other political parties mostly principle opposition parties or opposition parties in coalition, to ensure one of the family member is always in the government ????????????, very criminal & crocked tricks ????????, in fact in the recent times the son/ daughter of the existing sitting senior elected representatives (in the states) are in other political parties and are reserving their seats adjacent to the constituency or in the same district where there father or mother or brother is representing to ensure they got elected, also the other political parties are encouraging because of lack of mandatory propionate representation only two or three so called powerful castes or religions in that area are getting elected because of the clout and money power and muscle power and there managing to win the tactics????????????????, are people of the country really living in a democratic way or autocratic way ??????; that is why badly required mandatory proportionate representation as per castes, income group, gender and also restricting only one family member to represent in the political party origination or government; in case multiple members in the same family or elected representatives representing any level, any party or independent then all such elected representatives of the family member should be barred from being part of any government at any level to make the system correct and inclusive growth of all sections of the people??????????. As many people are of the opinion that the select few individual family members (OTHER THAN PEOPLE BELONG TO FREEDOM FIGHTERS FAMILIES) may be of opinion/notion that their families are the only families in the country having “MANLINESS, REST OTHER FAMILIES IN THE COUNTRY ARE EITHER IN BETWEEN GENDER OR VERY WEAK GENES, ALSO ALL OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE DEDICATEDLY WORKING IN THE POLITICAL ORGANISATIONS ARE FOR BORN TO BE BONDED LABOUR TO SERVE THESE SELECT FEW FAMILIES OF ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES THROUGHOUT THERE LIFE TIME, FROM THE VILLAGE TO MANDAL TO DISTRICTS TO STATE LEVEL”???????. As such the onus lies on the ruling governments to rectify these mis conceptions among the people through reforms in the electoral system.
(24) NEED FOR MANDATORY RESERVATION OF THE GP/MANDAL ELECTED HEAD TO BE FROM THE MAXIMUM POPULATED CASTE/RELIGION IN CASE ANY CASTE POPULATION IN THAT TERRITORY EXCESS 1/3 OF THE TOTAL POPULATION
Also it should be mandatory through electoral reforms that at the gram panchayat/village level, the maximum population of category/caste i.e over 1/3 of the population of the village belonging to one particular category i.e forward castes, backward castes, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, minorities, then the sarpanch of the village/gram panchayat should be from that particular category only (FC, BC, SC, ST and Minority),along with maintaining the gender equality as per government amendment of panchayat raj act of mandatory representation of 50 % seats to be reserved for women at the gram panchayat. The above principle of maximum population category should be applicable to all levels of local body elections.
(25) NEED FOR MAKING IT MANDATORY THE COMPOSITION OF CABINET IN THE STATE AND CENTRAL GOVERNMENT PROPORTIONATE TO THE CASTE & RELIGIOUS POPULATION
Also it should be mandatory that the composition of cabinet at the state governments and central government should be proportionate to the percentage of population of category (FC, BC, SC, ST, Minority) covering proportionately all major populated castes/ sub castes within the category of (FC, BC, SC, ST, Minority), among the elected members of in the ruling party/ ruling alliance along with maintaining gender equality. Also it should be mandatory that the cabinet composition should be a mix of young and senior members, with maintaining the average age of the cabinet team equals the average age of the members of assembly/parliament. In addition, it should be mandatory that any member can head the cabinet, and become a members of cabinet or leader of opposition party (LOP) for a maximum of two terms only during the entire tenure as a member in his life term (maximum allowed terms of that level) of either lower house or upper house. This measure will ensure that majority of the members can get an opportunity be in the cabinet during their tenure as members of the state assembly/ parliament. Only the leader of the legislative party elected by the members can be from any caste as decided by the parties or allies through voting. In this also the allocation of portfolios is the discretion of the chief minister, prime minister.
(26) NEED FOR MAKING IT MANDATORY THAT ALL MEMBERS IN THE GOVERNMENT AT AL ALL LEVELS I.E LOCAL GOVERNMENT, STATE GOVERNMENT AND CENTRAL GOVERNMENT VISIT THE RULING PARTY OFFICE AT THAT LEVEL I.E VILLAGE LEVEL, MANDAL LEVEL, DISTRICT LEVEL FOR THE LOCAL BODY GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVES, ALL CABINET MINISTERS OF THE STATE FOR THE RULING STATE PARTY OFFICE, AND THE UNION CABINET MINISTERS AT THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT MUST MANDATORILY VISIT THE RULING PARTY NATIONAL OFFICE / HEAD QUARTERS IN CASE OF REGIONAL COALITION RULING PARTY OFFICES PERIODICALLY (MONTHLY TWICE) TO ENSURE THAT PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT ARE SUBMISSIVE, LOYAL TO THE PARTY, AND PARTY OFFICE BEARERS BECAUSE OF THE EFFORTS OF THEM IN MAKING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE PARTY POLICES AND PROGRAMMES PEOPLE UNDERSTAND AND GET VOTED TO THE CANDIDATES, AND BECAUSE PARTY GOT MANDATE THE GOVERNMENT IS FORMED, SO THE PEOPLE IN THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD ALWAYS OBELISE TO THE PARTY OFFICE BEARERS AT THERE RESPECTIVE LEVEL
It is a common syndrome faced by many political parties who are in ruling that the once got mandate from the people and formed government, whether it is a local government or state government or central government most of the members of the government are become less available to the party office bearers at their respective level, forget above the people of the territory they represent, most of these members in the government are confined to head quarters of the mandal or district in case of local government, to the capital city in case of state and central governments (almost all the ministers in the government); this is due to the fact that on assuming the charge as minister in the government at the state and centre government most of them will exhibit their own high head-ness, ego, supremacy and some others even height of arrogance completely neglecting the party, party office bearers,(only answerable to the party founders and their kin & kith due the fear in case of regional parties in states); they are ignoring the fact that because of the hardship of the party office bearers at various level collectively useful for their win due to galvanizing people of the territory (all elected members constituencies) towards that party by taking party policies and programmes to the people and win their confidence towards the party and thus people given mandates to party by electing the representatives to form the government to carry on the administration for their betterment. As such the win of the individual minister as an elected representative, all other elected members in that party are only due to the efforts of the party office bearers, as such they should always exhibit utmost loyalty, respect, answerability to the party office bearers at that level. they also should be thought that party office bearers are above them and they just got opportunity to represent on behalf of party in the government?????????????; also it should be made mandatory that they (the ministers in case of state and central government, similarly the elected government at local level) should visit the territory party office headquarters at least twice in a month and also visit the district/mandal headquarters office from where the he/she got elected once in a month mandatorily for at least 8 hours on any day and take note of all the grievances of the people through the party office bearers and try to resolve (should not expect that party office bearers seek there appointment in the office and wait for their mercy to give time to appeal for the people issues????????????????); also it should be made mandatory the most of the ministers even does not bother to extend the courtesy to acknowledge the letters of the party office bearers ??????????????, as such it should be made mandatory that all members in the government representing the party should acknowledge the letters of all the party office bearers on receipt of the letters whether it is peoples issue or suggestions for god governance and send the follow up action taken report subsequently in a specified time period. This will certainly help the people of the territory to get relief as many of them cannot have the access to the minister as ministers cannot individually spend that much time as they are engaged in the administration, policy job making etc, as the people can easily approach the nearby party office and submit their request, the party office bearers to forward to the concerned minister for the redressal of the genuine grievances of the people, without which the people of the territory feel they are being cheated by the party for giving mandate as the ministers cannot visit each and every part of the territory (districts or states) and people will be frustrated and feel cheated because of responce from the party office berers who are in tough with them and because of trusting the words of the party office bearers the voted for the party ?????????????, also more or less the feeling is same by the party office bearers?????????????; as such it should be made mandatory that all political parties that on obtaining the mandate should certainly answerable to the party office bearers in the larger interest of the people of the territory????????????????.
(27) NEED FOR MANDATORY PROVISION FOR MINIMUM OF 51% OF THE TOLL VOTES POLLED TO FORM THE GOVERNMENT (AGGREGATE OF ALL COALITION PRE POLL ALLIANCE PARTNERS AND OUT SIDE SUPPORT PARTIES) IN ADDITION TO THE MINIMUM NUMBER OF ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES FOR CROSSING THE HALF WAY MARK FOR GOVERNMENT FORMATION
Since the rule of law is majority of the peoples approval necessary to rule all the people, then in the event of elected representatives are getting elected and becoming members in the august houses with mere 30 % of the total polled votes with average polled votes only 2/3 of the total voters so the half way mark of the elected representatives will not represent majority of the peoples approval, as such it should be made mandatory that to form government at any level in addition to the half way mark of the total strength of the house also needed to have more than 51 % of the total polled votes with the total votes polled should not be less than 90 % of the total voters.; as such all the pre polled alliances or post poll outside support parties aggregate voting share should be more than 51 % to form the government; this method will certainly ensure that all the government decisions will get majority peoples approval.
(28) NEED FOR HAVING MANDATORY PRE DETERMINED SEAT SHARING IN ALL ELECTIONS (PARLIAMENT, ASSEMBLY, AND LOCAL BODY) BY THE PRE POLL ALLIANCE PARTNERS EITHER ELECTION WISE OR FOR UNIFORM FOR ALL ELECTIONS WHEN ENTERED INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR PRE POLL ALLIANCE WITH VALIDITY OF SUCH AGREEMENTS SHOULD BE FOR A PERIOD WHICH COVERS MINIMUM ONE SINGLE ELECTION OF EACH LEVEL (ONE TERM) IN AT LEAST ONE SINGLE STATE BETWEEN ANY TWO PARTIES; ALSO NEED FOR THE POLITICAL PARTIES BARRED TO HAVE SEAT SHARING FOR ONLY FOR A PARTICULAR ELECTION, ALSO BARRED TO ENTER PARTNERSHIP WITH MULTIPLE COALITION PARTIES IN DIFFERENT STATES, ALL POLITICAL PARTIES IN ALLIANCE IN ONE COALITION SHOULD VALID FOR ALL STATES AND CENTRAL GOVERNMENT FOR BRINGING VALUES AND MAINTAINING ETHICS AND MORE CLARITY FOR THE PEOPLE AND PARTY CADRE
In the event of political parties need to make pre poll alliances for achieving 51 % of the total poled votes and to achieve half way mark in the floor of the houses at different levels either national, state or local body, it should be ideal, appropriate, ethical and holy to have a uniform systematic alliance between political parties, in order to bring clarity to the people and also clarity to the respective party cadre, also this pre poll alliance should have decided seat sharing agreements either uniform for all elections i.e parliament, assembly, and local body or different sharing patters for different levels based on the strengths of each parties based on various parameters, also the agreement made should be legally binding with validity for at least one single election at each level in the alliance to go together for elections, also the alliance one made either for any election local body or state or national then the alliance partners are barred to enter with different coalition partners in different state or for different elections; in case of any violation should lose the recgnization of the political party; (ex if party 1 has alliance in centre with party 2 then both party 1 and 2 cannot be in opposite collations (one party in ruling the other party in opposition) in any assembly or local body elections in any state – otherwise the pre alliances cannot be holy, totally unethical???? The alliances should be like marriages, should not be like living together or prostitution????????) the above methods will certainly ensure better understanding and utilisation of party cadre and energies by the alliance partners to reach out to the people in a better manner and also possibility for more better governance because of stability in the alliances as lections for different levels are at different times (at present), as breaking the alliance by the smaller parties leads to de recgnization of the elected members as they got elected due to joint efforts of both parties in when that particular election occurred.
(29) NEED FOR BANNING OF REGISTERED POLITICAL PARTIES SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES IN THE ELECTION FRAY, ALSO BANNING REGISTERED POLITICAL PARTIES SUPPORT THE INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES FOR NOMINATION TO UPPER HOUSES. NEED FOR REGULATING BUSINESS PEOPLE GETTING POLITICAL PARTY NOMINATIONS TO BE IN FRAY.
Since as per the proposal if the candidates are to be declared well in advance of four months before the election due date, then in case the parties wishes to change the candidates due to any reason in the last moment, then they will adopt the method of filing the party candidate as independent candidate and support the candidature of the independent candidate who has already filed his nomination as independent candidate; this method will certainly lead to confusion in the people, party cadre, and also a bad precedence as many people who did not got their name cleared by the registered political parties will certainly use this method by filing the nominations as independent candidate, mange later the political parties either their previous or other political parties to get support for their candidature to extend outside support on getting elected; also this method of managing registered political parties (MOSTLY REGIONAL PARTIES) is being in use for the upper house nominations by majority of the people with wealth to get nominated with the support of registered political parties to the upper houses in the state and centre and uses their position for personal business gains through their public relations as an elected representatives???????????, sometimes influencing the government through the lobbying and also sometimes getting favours in one or other manner ?????; (IF RECORDS OF ALL SUCH MEMBERS IN THE PRESENT AND PREVIOUS HOUSE ARE VERIFIED THEN IT REVEALS THEIR REAL CONTRIBUTION AS A MEMBER OF UPPER HOUSE??????,THEIR ATTENDANCE, IN WHICH CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEES THEY ARE MEMBERS, THE GROWTH OF WEALTH AND BUSINESS TURNOVERS AND EXPANSION OF BUSINESS AND GROWTH OF SHARE PATTERN IN VARIOUS COMPANIES BY THE MEMBER , THEIR FAMILY, KIN & KITH ETC????); also it should be made mandatory that in case any elected representatives of the registered political parties violates the whip in the supporting the independent candidates for the upper house then such elected members of the registered political should be dismissed from politics, in addition barring to contest election either personally or by their family members for a period of 30 years; also it should be made mandatory that all people with business back ground should be barred to get any registered political parties nominations, any person who is in the business as a propriety or partnership or director in any company if they are party members, they can be considered for candidature if and only if they resign from the partnership or directorship at least 6 years prior to seeking party nominations; only they can contest as independent candidate and no registered political party should support their candidature in any manner. This method will certainly reduce the entry of people with business interests entering the politics.
(30) NEED FOR MAJORITY APPROVAL OF PARTY OFFICE BEARERS AT THE GROSS ROOTS OF BOTH PARTIES TO HAVE PRE POLL ALLIANCES OF THE REGISTERED POLITICAL PARTIES TO BE A PART OF THE GOVERNMENT FORMATION.
To have pre poll alliance or post poll alliance (to extend & receive outside support) the both parties need to have the approval of more than 51 % of the primary members of that party to have the alliance by a voting and the voting approval should be recognised only if at least 2/3 of the total primary members vote in favour of extending / receiving support. In order have this, the proposed parties should apply at least one year before the elections to have the poll alliance, on receiving the application, and the election commission shall announce the date of internal election under the supervision of election commission to have the vote for alliance. In case of bi elections pre poll alliance should be barred to operate, unless having pre poll alliance before the general elections. The pre poll alliance partners are free to vote, on any bills and motions moved in the respective house. In case the ruling government lost in the trust vote, the pre poll alliance in the general elections should be barred from joining in the government formed by other alliances, should be restricted to extend only out sides support for the remaining tenure of other alliances, and even to extend the outside support to the party needs have least 50 % of the primary members of political party should extend the support for the new alliance.
To vote on any bill in assembly/ parliament either for or against the bills, all the political parties need to have at least 3/4 of approval for voting either for or against the bill from all the elected representatives of that party at same level and also level below them i.e in case of parliament from the parliament members and all elected assembly members, all local body elected representatives from that party or at least 3/4 of the party office bearers at all levels of that party without which the meaning of real democracy has no value.
(31) NEED FOR ENSURING VALUES PREVAIL IN THE PARLIAMENTARY SYSTEM OF DEMOCRACY BY RESTRICTING ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF POLITICAL PARTIES ONCE MADE A PRE POLL ALLIANCE THE PARTIES ARE RESTRICTED FROM EXTENDING SUPPORT ONLY WITHIN THE ALLIANCE AND NOT FOR THE ANY OTHER ALLIANCE EVEN FROM OUT SIDE OR JOINING THE NEW ALLIANCE, AS PEOPLE VOTED JOINTLY FOR THE PARTIES TRUSTING THEIR MANIFESTOS/ POLL PROMISES???; ALSO RESTRICTING THE OUT SIDE SUPPORT PARTIES TO JOIN NEW COALITION, BUT CAN EXTENT OUT SIDE SUPPORT TO NEW COALITION ON MAJORITY APPROVAL OF THERE PARTY GRASS ROOTS; ALSO RESTRICTING THE INDEPENDENT ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES TO JOIN THE GOVERNMENT
In order to bring values, morals in the political system it should be mandatory through electoral reforms, restricting independent candidates to have only the right to extend outside support to any party forming the government, independent candidates should be barred from joining the ruling government, also barred to hold any government nominated positions. In case the independent elected candidate wishes to join any political party whether ruling or opposition, should lose his candidature as elected representative or upper house representative, and become just a member of that party and only after completing 6 years as a member of that recognised political party (national or state) or for all registered un recognised political parties with common symbol, for a period of recgnization till the joining of that party, i.e for a period from the date of joining of that party, to the date of obtaining the registered symbol for that party, or 6 years whichever is lower, they should be eligible to contest the election from that party. If any independent candidate extends support to any party or alliance at the time of of formation of government or during the trust vote, the independent candidate should be barred from giving any outside support letter for any other party in his tenure as member of that level in case the ruling government loses the confidence of the house. The vote for the new government in his current tenure will be invalid and his candidature should be suspended for the remaining period of the tenure. This will certainly eliminate the horse trading of the independent candidates. This measure will certainly, improve values to the political system in the country, avoids horse trading..
(32) NEED FOR MANDATORY VOTING IN THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE BY ALL POLITICAL PARTIES BY SCRAPPING THE PROVISIONS OF WALKING OUT / ABSTAINING FROM VOTING BY ANY ELECTED MEMBER OF THE RESPECTIVE HOUSE TO BRING VALUES IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARLIAMENTARY SYSTEM, ALSO TO PREVENT HORSE TRADING, OF THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES DURING THE VOTING ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSES; ALSO NEED FOR MAKING POLITICAL PARTIES TO CONDUCT INTERNAL OPINION POLLS BEFORE VOTING ON VARIOUS MOTIONS FROM THE PARTY OFFICE BEARERS & / ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES OF VARIOUS LEVELS FOR OBTAINING THE PARTY STAND ON VARIOUS ISSUES;
It should be mandatory that all elected representatives of all political parties should compulsory vote in their respective house for all bills, especially for all constitutional amendments & trust motions, for yes/ no, any of the elected representatives of any political parties are barred from walked out or abstain from the voting (else should lose the political party symbol and recgnization, in addition to loosing the right to represent the territory as an elected representative by all such members) as people given mandate for that party members not to abstain from the voting?????. This principle holds good for all independent elected candidates also. As abstain from voting is being used by ruling parties for getting through in the voting????. Following & setting a bad precedence in the democratic system?????; also all the political parties should compulsorily participate in the discussions on all matters in the parliament and assembly and local body, this method will ensure that true representation of people’s views on the floor of the house, abstaining, walking away is not the real solution which is nothing but compromise/colluding with the government of the day indirectly for the individual benefits of the such members or such political parties ?????? people of the territory did not sent as there representative to be have ambiguity, they are either yes or no only, As people whom they represent will not get any benefit from such ambiguity acts, only participating in discussion, voting yes or no to government policy only can benefit the people in some or other manner?????? By getting the policy of the government approved or rejected in the larger interest of the people.
(33) NEED FOR ENSURING STABILITY OF THE GOVERNMENTS, FOR DELIVERING GOOD GOVERNANCE ALL COALITION PARTNERS SHOULD COME UNDER THE GOVERNMENT WHIP DURING THE PARTY VOTING ON VARIOUS ISSUES AND TRUST MOTIONS, BY ENACTING IN CASE OF VIOLATION TO LOSE THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE POSITION FOR THE REASON THEY GOT ELECTED DUE TO JOINT MANIFESTO, PEOPLE VOTED BY SEEING THE PARTIES TOGETHER (THIS MEASURE NECESSARY TO REDUCE THE PRESSURE & BARGAINING TACTICS OF THE SMALLER COLLATION REGIONAL PARTIES); ALSO TO MAINTAIN THE COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY ALL THE GOVERNMENT POLICIES & DECISIONS INCLUDING EXECUTIVE ORDERS ONLY THROUGH THE COLLECTIVE & CONSENSUSES DECISION/APPROVAL OF ALL THE COLLATION PARTNERS WHICH ARE IN PRE POLL ALLIANCE IN THE GOVERNMENT, IN CASE THE GOVERNMENT IS RUNNING ON OUT SIDE SUPPORT WITH THE PRIOR APPROVAL OF OUT SIDE SUPPORT PARTNERS ON SUCH MATTERS
Also it should be made mandatory that all partners in the government (elected representatives of pre poll alliance political parties) are subjected to government whip for collective responsibility of running the government for getting mandate from the people jointly for the group?????, also in order to have collective responsibility it should be mandatory that a committee is formed within the government to discuss thoroughly on all government matters and executive orders before enacting for obtaining the joint collective consensus on various matters for ensuring the stability of the government and delivering good governance; also in case any member of the government or ant partner in the pre poll alliance party does not obey the government whip and vote against any government decision then such member or members from such pre poll alliance partner party should lose the membership of the house and fresh elections need to be called for in their respective constituencies as they breached the trust of the people they kept on the member by jointly electing them for the house. This method will certainly avoid the midterm polls and also ensure smooth functioning of the government without subjected to the threats, pressure tactics and bargaining and sometimes black mailing of the coalition partners for their political gains in their region/territory?????? As it is an open secret that most of the regional parties whether in government or in opposition in their state are used for threatening, try to over draw from the budget etc to gain political mileage for their regional parties??????, as such the above method will ensure no government in coalition will act in haste or act autocratic and also to ensure that better, healthier, progressive & productive debate and discussions occur on the proposed polices & programmes of the government for being different point of views on same subjects for different parties in the larger interest of betterment of people of the territory??????
(34) NEED FOR ALLOCATION OF CABINET BERTHS BASED ON THE PRE POLL ALLIANCES IN PROPORTIONATE REPRESENTATION; NEED FOR FIXING MAXIMUM NUMBER OF TERMS AN INDIVIDUAL ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE CAN BE A MEMBER IN A CABINET OF ANY GOVERNMENT, ALSO TO HOLD A NOMINATED POSITION IN THE GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME OF OTHER ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES IN THEIR LIFE TIME, OTHERWISE IT IS SOME THING LIKE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASES, WHO BECOME MINISTER DUE TO ANY REASON THEY WISH TO HOLD THE POSITION LIFE LONG WITH BEST PORTFOLIOS ????;
All the pre poll alliance parties should be given berths in the cabinet or any nominated positions of the government proportionately to the strength of the representation of the party in the alliance strength to the maximum permissible number of berths in that level, with the desertion of portfolio allocation to the majority ruling party. This will eliminate the bargaining/pressure tactics of the alliance parties. Also it should be made mandatory that fixed number of tenure any individual elected member can be a member in the cabinet is two terms (irrespective of years of service in government); this measures necessary as many of the elected representatives think that once being a member in the cabinet, next time onwards it is there birth right and wish to hold the cabinet whenever there party forms the government or some of them switches to other parties, coalitions just become a member in the cabinet????. So the above method will certainly provide the opportunity to most of the elected members to be in the cabinet.
(35) NEED FOR MANDATORY APPROVAL OF 80 % OF PARTY OFFICE BEARERS (4/5 OF THE TOTAL) AT ALL LEVELS FROM VILLAGE TO STATE LEVEL FOR MERGERS OF POLITICAL PARTIES BY BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES FOR ENSURING FAIR TREATMENT OF THE PARTY OFFICE BEARERS AND PARTY ACTIVISTS FOR RENDING THEIR SERVICES WITH HOPE OF GETTING PARTY POSITION IN THE HIGHER LEVEL OR PARTY NOMINATION IN ELECTION WHICH ARE BEING HAMPERED DUE TO MERGERS DUE TO POLITICAL INTERESTS OF THE PARTIES AT THE APEX??????
Since in the last few decades there is rise in billionaires and milliners earned money in legitimate or illegitimate way or holding un accounted money mostly by the political elected representatives or the so called celebrities either themselves or backed by the elected representatives, also elected representatives how are not able to get their whims & fancies fulfilled in the existing recognised political parties as they as maintaining separate group in the party they represent?????, or also if there say (the billionaires and above mentioned type elected representatives) not fully accepted in their present political party are flouting the new political parties with few of the followers, many people are joining such new parties from other political parties where they did not get rise in their carrier for the sake of designation and visiting card, also many other people joining the same purpose as they are of the opinion that politics is the best business do nothing and gain more with developing more contacts in politics, business, bureaucracy with visiting card with some designation?????; all such parties on getting some seats are merging with the main parties (people presume for bigger bargain by the heads of such small regional parties with the bigger parties is more or less similar to incorporation of a company, selling the shares of company for un disclosed exorbitantly high premium for immediate gains, but on papers only a small premium??????), in this process the other elected representatives other than the near & dear of the apex of the small regional parties are getting nothing, also the party activists are joining the bigger party on merger creating a competition and snatching away the positions both in the part & government nominated positions due to the so called deals done at the apex with the small regional parties????? And the sincere loyal activists of bigger party who are awaiting for their turn to have an opportunity to represent the party are getting cheated in the process, also some of the party activists of the small regional party are getting effected????; in order to do justice to all sections in the process of mergers it should be made mandatory that both merger parties should have got 4/5 of the party elected representatives and also 4/5 of the party office bearers at each level from district to village and also over all state/region should approve the merger in voting, then only the merger should be accepted; also in order to ensure the mergers are not for personal political gains the small merger party elected representatives or the party activists on merger should barred to join the government or hold any nominated position for a period not less than 5 years in case the only motive of the merger is only in the larger interest of the people of the territory not certainly the larger interest of the personal gains of the founders of the small regional parties?????; also this method will certainly avoids the formation of groups within the larger political party on the mergers??????.
(36) NEED FOR MAKING MANDATORY THE POSITION OF GOVERNORS AND OTHER CONSTITUTIONAL NOMINATED POSITIONS (CHAIRPERSONS, BOARD MEMBERS OF COMMISSIONS ETC) SHOULD NOT BE PROVIDED TO ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES (FOR BOTH SITTING & EX-MEMBERS), ONCE ANY INDIVIDUAL ON COMPLETION OF TERM OF ANY CONSTITUTIONAL POSITIONS SHOULD BE BARRED TO BECOME PRIMARY MEMBER IN ANY POLITICAL PARTY, ALSO BARRED FROM CONTESTING ELECTION AT ANY LEVEL, ONLY HE/SHE CAN GET NOMINATED FOR NEXT HIGHER LEVEL IN THE CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION ONLY; ALSO CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION TERM TO ANY INDIVIDUAL SHOULD BE FIXED FOR ONE TERM ONLY AT ANY LEVEL CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION; ALSO FIXING THE MAXIMUM AGE AT THE TIME OF ASSUMING OFFICE FOR ANY CONSTITUTIONAL POSITION SHOULD BE 65 YEARS.
Since constitutional positions should be a political and the persons occupying chairs of the constitutional positions should act non biased, it should be mandatory that no person with political back ground should be made to hold any constitutional positions; the same is emphasized in many reports constitutional by governments on constitutional matters, but very unfortunately all the governments till date are appointing only political persons to the constitutional positions – de moralising certainly leading to the biased way of functioning at least few times during their tenure if not on day to day bases, many instances of allegations that governors acting biased is being common?????; also the constitutional positions are losing their sanctity as the constitutional positions are become an alternative adjustment of graceful exit of the senior most political persons, but very surprisingly many politicians who served in the constitutional positions are contesting elections after the completion of the term or during the mid of the term by resigning from the constitutional position totally degrading the sanctity of the constitution position for personal gains?????, as such it is most ideal that the constitutional positions to eminent personalities in the field of education & law & judiciary like professors in public administration, sociology, politics, economics & law and eminent lawyers who fought and won the larger public interest cases only all who are not primary member of any political party nor have relation to any elected representative not directly or indirectly involved in any political organisation in any capacity including advisory role only should be made eligible for consideration for the nomination for the constitutional positions like chairpersons and members of national/state commissions of SC, ST, OBC, Minority, Women etc and also for Planning Commission, Governors etc (no to retired persons from judiciary as this may lead to some sort of bias or favouritism to the government of the day to get nomination for the constitutional positions post retirement ?????); also the above methods will bring real constitutional justice to people in many ways, it gets impartial role of the constitutional authorities, also it provides opportunities for various eminent personalities with knowledge,; also it should be made mandatory that the family members of the people who served as constitutional authorities are barred from contesting in any election or hold any nominated position for at least 30 years after the completion of the term as a constitutional authority ?????; also the maximum age for the entry of the constitutional position should be 66 years to ensure better functioning of the institution.

Also IT SHOULD BE MANDATORY THROUGH REFORMS THAT ELECTION COMMISSION SHOULD PROVIDE AN OFFICE FOR THE EACH ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE MANDAL LEVEL TO THE PARLIAMENT (as till date mostly the residence of the MLA/MP is the camp office of the elected representative). All the offices should have slandered design and equipment throughout the country like standard tables, chairs, with fixed number of chairs based on the population of that territory, telephone, fax, computer, printer, internet, etc with drinking water and sanitation facility for the visitors, with consumables & maintenance to be supplied by the respective state/local governments for up to assembly level offices and by the central government for the elected representatives of parliament.

In addition it should be made mandatory that all elected representatives should mandatorily visit their territory in such a manner that all the villages/ mandals are covered in three months time, the visits should be preferably on weekends and non working hours, to ensure that work of the villagers is not disturbed, in every village should conduct a gathering during the visit to ensure that all villagers are being heard about their grievances. All the details of the visit should be submitted to the election commission quarterly within fifteen days of completion of that quarter. Also all the expenditure incurred for the travel to the villages /mandals and the local expenditure during the visits should be submitted to the election commission every quarter. Every elected candidate should use the computer with internet provided by etc, with standard e mail address for all the elected representatives except with mandal name, assembly constituency name, parliament constituency name change, the standard format to be filled by the individual citizens about the grievances, one copy of the mail will by default should reach the election commission office, in case the computer not opened for more than 5 consecutive days, the election commission office will alert automatically the candidate, the party organisation of the candidate and the local authorities to get the candidate attend to the mails and in case of any repair ensures it get repaired immediately. This ensures that all the candidates are vigilant all the times. As in almost all villages and towns are having net facility, this can be used by the public. Alternatively fax and personal visit should be made, every personal copy should be acknowledged by the elected representative. All the MLA/MP offices should have the CC camera and the footages should be transmitted to the district and state election commission office and stored for 5 years, all the visitors should be provided with receipt for their letters or heard the matter and feed in the computer, the copy will automatically stored in the etc system, after attending the work the completion report should be generated by the MLA/MP office and provide copy to the grievance presented candidate and the same should be intimated to the etc for pursuance of the grievance, also all the discussions with the people should be under camera surveillance only; all the MP/MLA residences should be provided with cc cameras at the entrance and exist and the footage should be automatically transmitted to the storage system of the etc, this measure will certainly lead to better attendance of the grievances of the people and also reduces the corruption, favouritism, bias and bureaucratic & business favouritism for vested interests should be reduced. (Since all government offices are being under the cc camera surveillance).
(39) NEED FOR MAKING IT MANDATORY THAT ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES SHOULD LIVE IN THE RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS MENTIONED IN THE ELECTION DECLARATION IN THE CONSTITUENCY AND ALSO TO THE OFFICIAL RESIDENCE ALLOCATED BY GOVERNMENT IN THE HEAD QUARTERS ONLY, ALSO NEED TO INSTALL THE CC CAMERAS AT THE ENTRANCE AND EXIT OF THE HOUSE OF THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE MANDAL LEVEL ONWARDS ESPECIALLY FROM THE ASSEMBLY AND PARLIAMENT REPRESENTATIVES TO RECORD AND VIEW THE VISITORS FOR PROVIDING MORE SECURITY ALSO TO RESTRICT THE UN HOLY NEXUS BETWEEN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND BUSINESS MEN, ALSO TO PREVENT UN ETHICAL BEHAVIOUR OF ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AS ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES LIFE SHOULD BA AN OPEN BOOK AND NEEDS TO BE MORE TRANSPARENT IN THEIR LIFE AS LONG AS THEY REPRESENT THE PEOPLE
In order to bring more transparency in the system and more accountability ensuring the elected representatives are accountability and more ethical behaviour and also available to the people they represent it should be made made mandatory that all elected representatives should mandatorily live in the address provided in the election commission or mention the new residential address to the election commission in case change of address, but should mandatorily live in the territory they represent, also in the head quarters at cities where assembly or parliament is situated mandatorily in the government allocated quarters only; also it should be made mandatory that all the residences of the elected representatives of parliament, assembly and mandal/block should be under CC camera surveillance by fixing the CC cameras at the entrance and exit of the house and and also at the visitors place in the residence (other than family & friends all other visitors should be met only in the visitors room at the residence and the conversation with them also should be recoded along with the CC recording- in the same lines of the offices at the territory they represent in order to bring transparency in the dealings with the public- the entrance cameras feed and the feed at the visitors room will determine the relationship of the visitors- which enables the elected representatives to behave more responsibly) also at the entrance and exit of the road, lane proceeding to the house of the elected representative; this CC camera surveillance should be in addition to the CC camera surveillance at the official offices of the elected representatives in their respective territory and the feed should be recorded and transmitted to the election commission monitoring wing; this method of keeping CC cameras at the office and residences will certainly not only useful in the security angel but also brings more transparency, also it should be made mandatory that all the visitors details in a standard format should be recorded in the visitors register and are uploaded to the election commission website, also the same should be maintained at the elected representatives office in the territory (the election commission should observe the frequent visitors and un registered visitors in the register book found in the CC cameras should be given to the Intelligence bureau of the police for gathering the information to curtail the touts operating at the official residence and at the office of the elected representative) ; as it reduces the elected representatives and business nexus, it reduces the corruption, it makes the availability of the elected representative to the people in the office or residence (also the people can call the toll free election commission office to know whether the elected representative is in the territory or not); also it should be made mandatory that the elected representative before leaving the station i.e the district should mandatorily inform the election commission office either through mail or sms from his official number or by calling from his official number; all these measures helps in improving the territory as it increases the responsibility of the elected representatives also it helps in adopting more ethical and moral behaviour by the elected representatives as some of the elected representatives who are in the head quarters or capitals are mostly forced bachelors as their families are living the territory they represent, some of these kind of elected representatives are indulging in prostitution, extra matrimonial affairs or expecting the sexual favours from the female members of the party activists and the some business people and leaders in order get favours they organize everything the elected representatives wishes to get the entertainment and pleasure????????????, it become a common syndrome for some of the elected representatives irrespective of political parties, as they are free to do anything they wish at the their official residence as they are scarred to do any illegitimate act in the hotels or guest houses for the scare of the CC cameras in the hotels and spy cameras in others guest houses?????; also it is a fact that some of the elected representatives are letting these official residences for the business people as many business people think that the best places to meet with politicians and bureaucrats is the official residences of the elected representatives, as such they pay fancy price as rental on oral agreements and will use the premises as they like and the so called elected representatives just keep one room for them and the rest is under the private business people and lobbyists control, and all sorts of activities takes place in the official residence of the elected representatives ??????; also it should be made mandatory to inform the local police the people other than the family members who are staying in the official residence of the elected representatives including the personal staff of the elected representatives. Also it should be made mandatory that the stay details of the elected representative should be up loaded to the official website of the elected representative, in addition to informing to the election commission as well the political party they represent to ensure more availability and convenience to the people they represent; also this method will certainly bring more responsible behaviour of the elected representatives. Also it should be made mandatory metal detectors with baggage scanners should be installed at the official offices of the elected representatives in the respective offices & at the residences at the territory and the residence at the capital in the larger interest of safety of the elected representative, for all elected representatives of assembly and parliament by government through deducting from their MLALAD/MPLAD fund; also it should be made mandatory that all hotels, guest houses both private and government, restaurants should mandatorily forward the footages in case of elected representatives visit there place to the election commission and also to intelligence bureau, failure to do should lead to the criminal case against the responsible persons of the hotel, restaurant, both government as well as private guesthouses.

Since the elected representatives life should be transparent, also the the time of the elected representative should be precisious & valuable and should be utilised only for the people they represent (after their individual family needs i.e spouse and children); in this connection even though there is installation of the CC cameras at the office, residence of the elected representatives from the assembly level on wards, but all other elected representatives from the Gram Panchayat to the district level local body representatives and also the assembly and parliament elected representatives visit so many places and meet so many people (most of the time for the self centred interests by majority of the elected representatives mostly for the monetary gains through one or the other way through deals or utilizing the position of the elected representative to benefit the business people or some individuals through which they will get some benefit); as such the people of the territory who elected the representative should have the authority to know the activities of the elected representative on day to day bases (after all the elected representatives are answerable to every single voter in the territory, also they should utilise every minute of the time during the tenure for the people of the territory, of course the basic needs of the family like children education taking care of spouse no one should object but as far as some fixed time for these activities are concerned, other than that their every single minute activity should be known to the people, as most of the elected representatives are wasting their time in non productive & useful to the people, and only for self use activities of the elected representative like either involvement in consumption of the alcohol soon after the sun set, even some will start from the morning, or involved in partying with close friends almost every evening, or with gambling by playing cards etc or involved with extra matrimonial affairs, prostitution or holidaying in some other state / country or or looking after their family business, or involved in meeting people with business interests and doing business deals in hotels or in friends’ houses or business intermediateries houses etc, almost all the actives outside the office / residence); all the above activities are not in the interest of the public who they elected them but only for self of the elected representative, as such all these can be avoided or reduced to a great extent as if they reveal where they are visiting, how much time they are spending, purpose of the visit, the basic description of the discussions in the visit. Also should clearly provide the details of the person they met like the full name, phone number, address / from which organisation/place etc, All the elected representatives should make the daily dairy on every hour column in the dairy supplied by the government in their own hand writing before going to bed in their residence, also all the elected representatives should rest in the official residence or government guest houses or inform the local police about the stay in private persons houses or hotels or private guest houses in case they are staying in the night other than government or personal residence/ government guest house. Also it should be made mandatory in case of wrong disclosure by any elected representatives they should be liable to recall for the first two mistakes, in case of third time repeated wrong disclosure then the election commission should initiate the right to re call, in case of fourth wrong disclosure the elected representative should be barred from holding the position of the elected representative. This method will certainly bring the morals in the elected representatives and drive them to be alert every time and dedicate their tenure to the public service. This method will certainly reduce the corruption to a considerable extent.
(40) NEED FOR ESTABLISHMENT OF TOLL FREE NUMBERS FOR REGISTERING THE GRIEVANCES OF THE INDIVIDUALS IN CASE NO RESPONSE FROM THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND ALSO TO PURSUE WITH THE ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES AND GOVERNMENTS FOR THE ISSUES OF PEOPLE

The election commission will announce a day and time to convene the assembly of all gram sabhas to conduct voting by all gram sabhas at the same time, to vote Y/N to recall the non performing candidate (assembly/parliament), simultaneously conducting voting of all the elected representatives in that constituency for the recalling of the candidate. For the assembly constituency all local body elected representatives of that constituency, in addition to local body elected representatives of all the assembly segments, all the elected members of the assembly in the parliament constituency are the eligible members to vote for the motion to say Y/N. In this all the gram sabha results should be given 60 % weight-age and the remaining weight-age of 40 % to the entire elected representative. In the voting motion of recall the recognised political parties wipe should not be valid and conscious vote of the elected representatives should be permitted, only thing is that election commission will issue wipe to mandatory vote in the motion to those gram panchayat members who has evoked the right to recall. If the “yes” for recalling of the candidate, is more than 50 %, then candidate should be dismissed as the member (of assembly/ of parliament) and fresh elections should be conducted in the constituency. The right to recall can be initiated only after completion of one year term as elected representative for general descent among the people of the constituency, in case of any serious criminal charges against the candidate, or abnormal raise in the wealth of the candidate (as the candidates are being contested and elected as per the class viz low, middle, upper class), the provision can be evoked irrespective of minimum period, but the right to recall, cannot be initiated 12 months before the expiry of the term of the elected candidate (term of assembly, parliament). Also once the candidate is dismissed in the right to re call method, then the dismissed candidate and the immediate family members of the dismissed candidate and the brothers and sisters born for the same father of the dismissed candidate should not be allowed to contest the bi-election. This method will certainly, ensure that all elected representatives work dedicatedly in the every villages and wards gaining the confidence of the all sections of the people.

It is fact that most of the political offices at the grass roots are operated from the properties of the local leaders of the party, this lead to groupism and also lead to inconvenience for the party workers and also to the common public (as people belong to different political parties live in the territory) to visit the residences of those leaders as the party office was situated in their residence, also it should be mandatory that no party office should be situated in the residential locality at any level to ensure avoidance of any kind of inconvenience to the residents as political offices at the residential areas are a big inconvenient, disturbance for the students, elders as well as house wife’s and different kinds of people will visit the offices on regular bases and also these offices regularly do darnas, celebrations on different occasions, also lead to traffic congestions; also the political offices situated in leaders houses will lead to bias and favouritism towards for that office bearers and there will be a chance to get hampering of the propaganda of their party activities and government programmes for the welfare of the downtrodden, also it should be made mandatory that all the office maintain proper staff in appropriate number with fixed salary for the office bearers as was determined by the election commission and all general rules of the employees of any business organisation should apply for the staff; also it should be made mandatory that all the offices are provided with appropriate fund towards the administrative expenses and also for the conducting programmes and propaganda of the programmes and for the visit of the leaders from various places. This measure is necessary since the down trodden sections of the people in almost all the political parties lacks the financial ability which is the constraint which makes the political parties encouraging so called powerful castes to be leaders from the mandal level to the district level for having self ability to run the party offices and programmes and take care of the visit of the leaders programmes from either there own pockets or through sponsorship from some business people, which is the root cause of the rise of inequality and lacks the social justice and only single digit percentage population castes are getting over 40% of the total seats to contest by all political parties in some states (in this regard all the political parties ensure level plying field by fielding almost equal wealth candidates); so the lack of proper office, lack of proper allocation funds and lack of office establishment is the root cause leading to non maintenance of social justice in the political party organisations which leads to the rise of corruption in the country; as such it should be made mandatory that all political parties should maintain the proper offices either owned by party or rented or leased located in non residential zones with adequate parking space and also maintain proper staff and also allocate funds for maintaining the offices and mandatorily submit the details of allocation of funds and expenditure of funds from each fields units every month to the election commission for ensuring transparency and social justice prevails marginalizing scope for favouritism of upper echelons just for spending money to run the offices.

It is a fact that after the economic liberalisation majority of the elected representatives wealth’s are grown abnormally in some cases the growth is in exponential rate in almost all levels?????; it is fact that prior to economic liberalisation the elected representatives wealth was on the rise but it is in geometrical growth with only certain politics whose wealth are grown abnormally; also since many economists feel that the rise in corruption, scams have taken in the large scale after economic liberalisation due to rapid growth of the economy & industry, trade, and certainly un doubtedely some of the elected representatives of the elected got benefitted in the process??????; also the recent studies indicate the wealth of the 60 % of the new elected representatives who got elected first time to the parliament in 2004 got their wealth grown to the tune of over 300 % in 2009 election declaration; also the average wealth of the elected representatives in 2009 was 25 crores; in most developed countries like America and Briton the parliamentarians are allowed to earn an extra income of mere 15 % more than their salaries ????
