Make health disclosures mandatory in elections in India

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We, at NewsBytes, are starting this petition to make the health records of our politicians public. 

Recent events including the revelation of health of Honourable Member of Parliament Mrs Sonia Gandhi and the untimely death of Honourable Chief Minister Jayalalithaa show the importance of these health records for smooth functioning of Indian democracy.

Physical or mental illness can affect the ability of a politician to think, communicate and act. The decisions made can have detrimental consequences. We believe that the health records of candidates including but not limited to weight, blood pressure, cholesterol profile should be accessible to every voter in this country.

We, therefore, request you to sign this petition and help us in this movement.
