Ravindran P M started this petition to THE PRESIDENT and

Another General Election is around the corner and it is time for new election manifestos, which going by previous experiences is not worth the paper it is written on.

Firstly, there is a need to make the election manifestos a legally binding document. The promises made in it should be legally enforceable through a court of law.

The following things should be ensured:

The promises made in the manifesto should be listed priority wise for implementation. There could be three priorities-must do, should do, could do. While all promises under must do have to be fulfilled, it could be 90 pc for the should do and 80 pc for the could do priorities. The phased program of implementation should also be specified and should not go beyond 5 years. For every percentage short fall there should be penalties at deterrent rates for the three categories.

The resources required for implementing should be specific.

The means by which the resources will be mobilised should also be specified in detail.

There should be no freebies for anybody.

Begging should be banned.

Destitutes should be taken care of by the government in senior citizen/destitute homes only. Senior citizen homes can be in three categories with appropriate facilities and should be managed on no profit-no loss basis.
