Electoral Reforms

Present Situation : Persons elected to the Local Bodies/State Assemblies/Parliament have a secure tenure of five or six years, as the case may be, and because of this, even if they do not perform properly or even if they do not take action to fulfill their promises to the electorate, nothing can be done till the next round of elections arrive on the scene. This ensures that people have to put up with an elected representative, who does not represent them in the real sense but represents either only himself or his political party. Sometimes, his own personal agenda overcomes his loyalty even to his political party....More

Present Situation : There is no doubt that administrative reforms are urgently needed inter alia to ensure proper delivery of goods and services to the people, sensitize bureaucracy to the needs of the people, reduce corruption and ensure accountability and generally bring out confidence in the government and its administration.

FRNV Recommendations/Plan : Ensure implementation of the recommendations of Administrative Reforms Commissions through strict monitoring and transparency. Though a separate Department of Administrative Reforms exists under the Ministry of Personnel in the Government of India and in the State Governments, these bodies are usually dormant and unable to ensure timely and strict implementation of administrative reforms. The Lok Pal and Lok Ayuktas could be empowered to monitor and make public the status of implementation of Administrative Reforms. ...More

Factoids & Highlights

News

A PIL was filed by FRNV that governments should be restrained from using tax payers’ money for the purpose of “eulogising” and glorifying” their achievements.

The universe is an unbounded sphere. Truth sustains this astounding creation. Abiding by Truth the Sun shines and the Earth revolves consistently; our hearts too beat regularly. Reigning as the core of our existence, Truth radiates, like flames, its purifying effulgence. Our real strength comes from that core when we cherish truthfulness.

Only by upholding truthfulness as the fundamental value, can we ensure the welfare and stability of the society as well as the individual. Like fire, truthfulness must shine in our hearts radiating its light and power through our thoughts, words and actions.

Hence we have as our motto: “satyaan-naasti paro dharmah” – There is no greater power of sustenance than Truth.
