Petition to Devendra Fadnavis

Bring back IAS Tukaram Mundhe to Navi Mumbai NMMC office.

Once upon a time Navi Mumbai was in the dirty hands of politicians and mafias. The leaders elected by the people were acting like they were gods and no one could stop them no matter what. Local mafias were getting the support from this politicians because of which illegal construction was in the full swing. No civilian wanted to get involved because they knew their voices won't be heard. Even if it is heard there was no guarantee of getting a response. Then there comes an officer who we never dreamt of. Who changed the entire working system of Navi Mumbai. Who became the nightmare for all those mafias and corrupt politicians who thought anybody could be bought with bribe. I am talking about IAS Tukaram Mundhe who served as NMMC chief from May 2016 till yesterday. He was supposed to complete the tenure of three years in NMMC office. But he was transferred from NMMC office because of the political pressure. He was not even allowed to complete his 1st anniversary in Navi Mumbai. There is no doubt that every Navi Mumbaikar support him for his fantastic work. He solved many major problems of Navi Mumbai like Water shortage, Drainage problem, Illegal construction, hawkers problem, parking problem and many more things which were pending since years. He also made Navi Mumbai the first Municipal Corporation to go digital.  His work was seen by the people and also appreciated.  Our only ask is- We need justification for his transfer. As a law abiding citizen we have every right to know the truth and full transparency. Why was he even not allowed to complete 1 year and transferred before completing his tenure of 3 years. If Navi Mumbai people are happy and satisfied with his work then he should be retained to complete his full tenure in NMMC office. If possible there should be a voting process to stop his transfer and retain in NMMC office. This is to know what Navi Mumbai people want. I request you to sign this petition if you agree with the above points. Thank you, Vaibhav Godambe, Software Engineer, A well wisher of Navi Mumbai.

Petition to Election Commission of INDIA, Pmo, President of India, Prime Minister of India

Bring back the ballot paper and stop using EVMs in Elections

Here are my points regarding my petition & why Ballot Papers are better than EVM:- Today in all over the world Ballot paper is the most reliable method for voting. Many countries like Japan, US, Germany, Netherlands etc had refused to use EVM. After spending close to $75 million on its EVMs, Ireland found them to be so insecure they literally scrapped them. If people start believing that EVM are fishy or fraud happening in the election then it's very bad sign for democracy.  The problems with EVM security have been widely known since the large-scale irregularities in Florida during the 2000 US elections. Many countries have moved to get rid of them. In 2006 Dutch TV aired a documentary showing how easy it was to hack the EVMs that were about to be used in their general election. The machines were subsequently withdrawn and the Netherlands went back to paper ballots. Ballot papers can’t be hacked like EVMs. One can easily change thousand of votes in EVM withing few minutes. People can’t complain that our vote gone to other candidates as ballot papers are not virtual. Ballot papers method may take few extra time on the day of counting but in India, we already spent months in elections and it happens in several stages so for the sake of transparency we can give some time. Supreme Court of India had also asked for EC for a plan on EVMs with the paper trail:- A bench, comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi and L Nageshwara Rao ordered: “… we direct the Election Commission to bring on record the approximate time within which the entire system of VVPAT can be introduced, subject to the grant of sanction and release of funds as and when required.” “We also request the Solicitor General of India to assist the court in so far as sanction and release of funds is concerned. List the matter after eight weeks,” the bench said. News Link - https://goo.gl/knfw7L  You can watch this video (This explanatory video shows EVMs can easily be manipulated) Youtube Video Link - https://goo.gl/C67am2 Therefore I want from to Election commission of India to stop using EVM and start using Paper Ballot like many countries did. I appeal every political party & people to raise voice against EVMs.
