By Sanjay Pahwa, Chandigarh :A nation wide movement called “India Against Corruption” has been started by CIVIL SOCIETY TEAM Anna Hazare, Dr. Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Swami Ramdev, Most Reverend Vincent M Concessao Archbishop of Delhi, Devinder Sharma, Sunita Godara, Mallika Sarabhai and many others to persuade government to enact JANLOKPAL Bill. “India Against Corruption” is a movement of several concerned citizens of India who have come together to demand comprehensive reforms of anti-corruption systems in India and to put an end to the dark corridors of power.
As Anna has now announced and instructed to IAC teams all across India, in next 3 months, we would be doing referendums against or taking Vachan Patras from, all the people who will be contesting elections.
· Chandigarh IAC TEAM has started appointment of India Against Corruption Representatives in all the sectors of Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali. We would be doing awareness programs in their respective sectors. We have IACR’s all across Chandigarh tricity .
· Apart from that we have formed teams which will be going to colonies/slums (like Sector-56, Indira Colony(Mani Majra), RamDarbar (Ph-2 Mhl), Mauli Jagra, Burail, Bapu Dham Colony (Sector-26), Colony No.4, Dadu Majra, Kajehri, Maloya, Khumbara etc.) every week and telling them about Janlokpal Bill, Right to Recall, Right to Reject etc.
· Also, last fiscal budget for M.C. was in hundreds of crores but no development or extra work has been seen previously. We would be going to people and telling them that so much money was allotted for their development but nothing has been spent on them. In these coming M.C. elections we would be asking them to raise their voices and follow the path of Anna Hazare.
· We would be asking people to take a “VACHAN PATRA” from their contesting candidate that he/she will adhere to his/her responsibilities like:
o He/she will declare their progress report every 6 months
o After one year they will disclose their development report alongwith money allotted for development, how that money was spent and purchase details
o He/she will do a “JANMAT” for him asking for the satisfaction of people with his/her work. If he/she doesn’t get more than 50% votes, then that VACHAN PATRA will be considered as his/her TYAG PATRA
o Also if he/she doesn’t get that “JANMAT” done every year, even then that VACHAN PATRA will be considered as his/her TYAG PATRA
Our purpose is corruption free system & to demand accountability from whomsoever come naming him/herself as people’s representatives. Our purpose is not to insult in anyways but we want to aware those people who are not aware about their rights and are been befooled till date. We also appeal people to associate with IAC Chandigarh Team and work for the prosperity of society and nation.
