Thank you. What a brilliant suggestion! We fully support it.
FIVE more (vital in national interest) suggestions, though unconnected with this one, are-
1. Visa free travel to Bharat by NRI's living abroad who are the BEST economic and social asset of the Land of our Origin (Roots), Divinity & Spirituality.
2. Removal of Article 370 from Constitution that is obvious appeasement of Muslims and a blot on the country's secular image in the world, making J&K a separate ("Islamic") and "disputed" State
3, Expedite corruption charges against all those involved with the previous SCAMS, large scale bribes and commissions, and recovery of illegal deposits in foreign secret bank accounts.
4. Assertion of ONE LAW for all. There should be NO separate Sharia Law in Bharat where the constitutional status of MUSLIMS is questionable after conceding them their separate ISLAMIC homeland called "Pakistan" in perpetuity.
Abolition of Hajj subsidies if there are NONE for the other religions. No polygamy to be allowed to Muslims nor should they be permitted to have more than two children per couple. (China has shown us the way!)
5. Suitable Memorials ought to be raised immediately to the "MARTYRS" OF 1946 (BENGAL) and 1947 (PUNJAB)".
At least TWO million Hindus lost their lives, countless girls and women were gang raped or mutilated, and over 15 million innocent citizens of Bharat were forced out of their ancestral homes. They were all looking forward to that "glow of Freedom" that was seen only by Jawahar Lal NEHRU whose dynasty misruled & plundered Bharat for more than six decades (until May 16, 2014)!
Such an UNPRECEDENTED colossal loss of human lives, properties, temples and shrines, and TERRITORY, and yet there is NO memorial to them! It amounts to FURTHER betrayal of those affected and a blot on the fair name of Bharat. It has to be washed away- as soon as possible!
The BOGUS "samadhis" to Maimoona (Indira Gandhi) and BOFORS CHOR (Rajiv Gandhi) should be replaced by MENORIALS of MARTYRS- one in Noakhali, (August 1946), and the other in West Punjab (March-November 1947), or the LAND handed over to the Hindus to establish "Swami Vivekananda University" and to the Sikhs to establish "Guru Gobind Singh University".
Raj Ghat should be turned into "Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Institute of Strategic Studies & National Unity" in order to guide and inspire the nation in the future.

LOKSATTA PARTY SUPPORTS SWACHH BHARAT; CALLS UPON PM TO EMPOWER LOCAL GOVERNMENTS BY TRANSFERRING 1000 RUPEES PER CAPITA FROM UNION BUDGET DIRECTLY TO GRAMPANCHAYATS AND WARD COMMITTEES
“Cleanliness is next to Godliness” – an aphorism, we have been hearing since our childhood days but how much have we - as a nation, invested in the idea? Barring a few, almost all our public properties would bear a sad and grim testimony to the rampant littering, spitting and urinating – be it on the roads or the parks, pavements or public buildings, railway stations and trains or bus stands. It is befitting that our Prime Minister has rightly been echoing Gandhiji’s thrust on cleanliness and has given a clarion call for a “Swachh Bharat”.
While Loksatta Party fully affirms and supports this campaign, we would like to remind our Prime Minister that unless and until our local bodies are empowered with funds and citizen participation, these initiatives will not scale up to achieve Gandhi's vision. Citizens at ward and panchayat level should be able to decide how to use public funds locally to clean up their streets and public areas. Sanitation workers need to be paid wages regularly and through bank accounts (Dr. JP as M.L.A was able to do this in Kukatpally and there is no reason why it can't be implemented elsewhere); Dumping in neighboring villages must stop (see Loksatta's legislation 'Dumping Saaku!") and massive awareness campaign about waste segregation must be launched by the GoI in order to make wealth out of waste. Clean cities are not just about aesthetics but will help improve public health and environment.
Loksatta party calls upon members, supporters and all responsible citizens of India to support this initiative and pledge to keep our cities and villages clean, not by words, but with actions. Further, Loksatta Party expects all its volunteers to firmly abide by a personal commitment to promote cleanliness and to not litter, spit or urinate in public areas.
Our mission is to clean up politics and public health and sanitation is all about better local politics.
