5 KEEP LOOKING ….. Except Milk Distribution, Egg Supply & Telecommunications THE MESS IS EVERYWHERE

6 AFTER 65 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE WHY THIS SITUATION ?

7 THIS IS BECAUSE INDIA SUFFERS FROM RAMPANT CORRUPTION / BRIBERY & NO ACCOUNTABILITY

8 POLITICS HAS BECOME A BUSINESS ABOVE THE LAW USE PUBLIC MONEY with NO ACCOUNTABILITY THE PEOPLE OF INDIA DO NOT TRUST THAT THIS GOVERNMENT THE NEXT, OR ANY OTHER WILL DO ANYTHING THEY WILL ONLY FOOL US AS THEY HAVE – FOR LAST 65 YEARS

9 SO …. WHAT IS THE SOLUTION ? WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA USING THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE

10 1. In a proper Democracy the Politicians are truly dependent on The Power of the People 2. No Government can withstand the Pressure that People can create when they Get Together, SPEAK in one voice, and Demand what they desire 3. When Gandhi Ji told the British to QUIT INDIA – they knew that their time in India was over 4. Recently – when 3,000 Students and Women got together at Vijay Chowk – to meet the President – the Government knew what to do FAST TRACK COURT and a NEW ANTI RAPE ORDINANCE was ready in 45 days THE POWER OF THE PEOPLE

11 BUT HOW DO PEOPLE ACHIEVE THEIR DESIRED PURPOSE ? THROUGH A CIVIL SOCIETY ACTION GROUP “CSAG” A PLATFORM WHERE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA STAND TOGETHER * EXPRESS WHAT THEY DESIRE * PUSH FOR ACTION

12 1. CSAG will be entirely APOLITICAL We have no association with any Political Party or Group of any kind 2. CSAG will have no conflict with the GOVERNMENT OF INDIA or PARLIAMENT This, or next or any other 3. CSAG will not participate is any Strikes or Bandhs or any work stopping activity This always costs the country a price it cannot afford to pay OBJECTIVES CSAG

13 1.CSAG will be a THINK TANK on behalf of the PEOPLE OF INDIA To analyse key issues and translate them into desires of the People, its priorities and present tangible reform actions 2.CSAG will prepare and present Petitions to the * President of India * Chief Justice of India * Chief Election Commissioner * Comptroller and Accountant General * Chief Vigilance Commissioner These Petitions will be signed and supported by millions of Indians 3.CSAG will provide Technical support and Advisory service To the National, State, Panchayati Raj and Local Governments METHODOLOGY CSAG

14 STRONGLY BELIEVES The Constitution of India provides the People the following Democratic Structure PRESIDENT Supreme Court of India Central Election Commission Government of India Lok SabhaRajya Sabha Central Vigilance Commission Comptroller & Auditor General CONSTITUTIONAL BODY ELECTED BODY CSAG

15 These Constitutional bodies were specially created to act as watch – dogs on the Government to prevent it from acting against the wishes of the People WILL WORK WITH Election Commission of India Central Vigilance Commission Supreme Court of India * Comptroller & Auditor General Since the Government is unlikely to do anything CSAG is working with the Constitutional Bodies which do not Report to the Government and are directly under the President CSAG

16 1. REMOVE BRIBERY / CORRUPTION IN GOVERNMENT WE NEED TO REMOVE IT AT THE TOP – MINISTERs, MPs, MLAs * * IT ENCOURAGES SENIOR OFFICIALS – BUREAUCRATS / POLICE * IT PERCOLATES DOWN TO – OFFICERS / BABUS * IT THEN SPREADS TO – ALL OTHER AREAS PURSUITS 2. ACCOUNTABILITY / RESPONSIBILTY OF ALL ELECTED PERSONS ALL ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF ENTIRE POLICE FORCE ENTIRE PROCESS OF DELIVERY OF JUSTICE AN INDEPENDENT AUDIT OF EXPENSES AN INDEPENDENT VIGILANCE AN INDEPENDENT CONDUCT OF FREE AND FAIR CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS CSAG

17 The FREE AND FAIR PROCESS OF ELECTIONS has been fully undermined India has only a NAAM KE VASTE Democracy CSAG ELECTION COMMISSION OF INDIA 1CANDIDATES 1.1.ON LINE submission of applications / affidavits 1.2INCOME TAX DEPT. to get copies for scrutiny 1.3STRICT SCRUTINY of Election Expenses of Winning Candidates 2POLITICAL PARTIES 2.1AUDIT OF EXPENSES by CAG 3.2ALL EXPENSES IN PUBLIC DOMAIN 3VOTERS 3.1Accurate Voter Lists 4.2Create “Right to Reject” 4.3Create “”Annual Appraisal” by the People

18 CSAG APPOINTMENT OF CONSTITUTIONAL / SENIOR BUREAUCRAT POSITIONS 1. Governors / Lt Governors 2. CEC/ECs, CAG, CVC/VCs 3.SENIOR IAS / IPS OFFICERS These causes many problems - as the State sees such people with suspicion The appointment of these persons should be done by a Collegium of: * Prime Minister * Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha * Chief Justice of India The CAG and CVC have no scope of any further appointments The CEC does not have such a limitation - must be done immediately. IAS / IPS Officers should have a Fixed Term of service

19 The President of India constituted the 2 nd Administrative Reforms Commission in August It has submitted 15 Reports so far and has already recommended the structure of Local Self – Governance / Panchayati Raj Institutions In spite of above – we do not see its implementation and huge gaps in between It is most important that we implement the Panchayati Raj system so that we can get the Accountability of our Administrative System in proper place RECOMMENDATIONS OF 2 nd ADMINISTRATIVE REFORMS COMMISSION CSAG

20 There has been an endless debate on LOKPAL / LOKAYUKTAS The CBI has already been called a “Caged Parrot” by the Supreme Court 1.We already have the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) The CVC should be empowered to function as the LOKPAL The CBI should be placed under the CVC 2.We already have the State Vigilance Commissioners (SVC) The SVC can be the LOKAYUKTA The Anti Corruption Bureaus (ACB) should be taken over by the SVC CSAG CHIEF VIGILANCE COMMISSIONER WE NEED AN ORGANISATION TO CONTROL CORRUPTION

21 1.These Reports are endlessly debated and there is no ACTION TAKEN 2.These Reports should be sent to Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) Action should be taken within 3 months 3.The CAG should audit the following: * All winning candidates in Elections of MP’s / MLA’s * All Political Parties CSAG COMPTROLLER AND ACCOUNTANT GENERAL THE CAG REPORTS ARE SENT TO THE PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE
