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 The machines were subsequently withdrawn and the Netherlands went back to paper ballots.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.

Demanding stringent laws to protect Women and bring their violators to instant justice
As a Daughter of India (sometimes it's hard to take that as a compliment), I urge everyone of you to look into Nancy Jha's case and sign this petition. Nancy, a 12 year innocent girl from Bihar was brutally killed by her own uncles in an acid attack. The police won't budge initially and had been suspended on grounds of negligence. An SIT team had to be set up to probe into the case. Though the accused turned themselves in to the police hoping for lesser punishment, the manner in which they killed the innocent and the reasons behind are spine chilling and deserve no forgiveness. It's unfortunate how India has to mourn a daughter lost every day. To know what happened with Nancy, let me paint a picture for you. She was gang raped (which is still to be made official), her wrists and throat were slit and acid was poured into her body which led to her fateful death. Her body was found in an unspeakable condition just a mile away from her home, leaving her family devastated. And this happens not a week after another infant was thrown out of a moving vehicle and killed by some rapists, and her 19 year old mother raped to rags. No one should ever go through this again! Today it's them, tomorrow it can be a dear one, but India stands on the spirit of treating everyone with utmost respect. Rape and murder is not the culture of India. We do not tolerate these crimes here. So I want you to come forward and sign this petition, so our PM, Narendra Modi can resolve this issue by escalating it and making stricter laws to punish the culprits. It's the only way to minimize and prevent future crimes at this level. Thank you! Sincerely Daughter Of India

Remove regressive provisions from proposed RTI rules
RTI activist Suhas Haldankar was on his way back home when he was beaten to death by 11 people. Suhas’s head was smashed with concrete blocks and he collapsed in a pool of blood. Suhas was using the RTI Act to expose civic lapses and raise his voice against the inefficiency of local corporators in Pune area. And if the government has its way, we may see many more information seekers meeting Suhas's fate. The government is trying to weaken the RTI Act by proposing amendments to the rules which will put RTI users' lives in danger. The proposed rules allow for withdrawal of appeals based on a written communication by the appellant and closure of proceedings upon death of the appellant. Given the Indian reality where RTI applicants are often attacked and even killed for seeking information, the proposed rules will make it easier for people with vested interests to pressurise RTI users and threaten them to withdraw their appeals. In just the last few years more than 57 people have been killed for using the RTI Act to seek information. Having a rule like ‘closing the proceedings upon death of the appellant’ puts the lives of lakhs of people using RTI in danger. The government should be protecting people who seek truth, demand accountability and expose corruption. Instead of implementing the Whistle Blowers Protection Act which was passed by Parliament more than 3 years ago, the government is making information seekers more vulnerable through the proposed RTI rules. Join us in demanding that the Central government withdraw these problematic provisions of the proposed RTI rules and also operationalise the Whistle Blowers Protection Act.

Petition to State Government, Central Government, District Magistrate
Angadvadi kendra should be used for social purpose & to be well maintained.
Anganwadi is a type of rural mother and child care centre in India. They were started by the Indian government in 1975 as part of the Integrated Child Development Services program to combat child hunger and malnutrition. Anganwadi means "courtyard shelter" in Indian languages. A typical Anganwadi centre provides basic health care in Indian villages. It is a part of the Indian public health care system. Basic health care activities include contraceptive counseling and supply, nutrition education and supplementation, as well as pre-school activities. The centres may be used as depots for oral rehydration salts, basic medicines and contraceptives. The Anganwadi is functioning as indicated by a collection of reports "Two children of an anganwadi centre in Angul district died in a freak accident on Friday. They drowned in a rainwater-filled pit dug near their anganwadi centre. The children are Priyanka Dash (3) and Monalisa Naik (4) of Tentulihata village within Banarapala police limits, 20 km from here. The incident comes two months after seven children of an anganwadi centre were killed in Nayagarh district when rain-soaked brick wall of the centre fell on them while they were having their mid-day meals." In my village belauna ka tola ,bihiya , bhojpur bihar ward no=5 .I also have some proofs which also indicate the reality of angadvadi kendra. Please file this petition for those who need angadvadi kendra to fullfill their needs .

Abolish Personal Income Tax
India, our country, having population of 125 Crore is a country where only approximately 3 Crore of us pay personal Incone Tax amounting to roughly Rs. 3 Lakh Crore. At the outset this figure of tax payer may appear very less in compare to our population. But on closer examination you will find that there is no scope to expand the tax base at present on account of our poverty, dependence on agriculture, massive unorganised sector employees, 13% or above educated unemployment rate, majority of organised sector employee earning less than taxable income etc. In view of the same the cost of running the Income Tax department to collect personal income tax would probably outweigh the merit of having the department of income tax itself. . Historically speaking, the concept of Income Tax is relatively very new. It started in 1799 in Great Britain to finance arms and ammunition for French Revolution. However, two years later it was scrapped. It came back in Great Britain in middle of 1800 to meet the budget deficit. In later part of 1800 it was introduced in another country and that is - United States to pay for the cost of its Civil War after slavery was abolished. But in early 1900 the United States Supreme Court declared it Unconstitutional. Later a constitutional amendment was made in United States to make Income Tax legal. In India Income Tax first came for few years towards mid and end of 1800. Starting in the year 1922 under British it became a permanent fixture in India. Looking back at the history and evolution of Income Tax one can certainly say that it was an after thought as a quick fix solution to an immediate problem that a nation encountered on account of war or it's deficit. The moral or ethical question on Income Tax arises on the notion of an individual living his or her life for the State. While under monarchy it was clear that an individual is a subject and he or she lived for the King or the State... in a democracy the individual or the people are supreme being a citizen where the State belongs to him or her and not vice - versa. In the other words - under monarchy an individual's life belonged to the King but in Democracy an individual is a Free person having free will. In this scenario to collect income tax on an individual's income amounts to forcing them to live for the State infringing on his or her freedom and free will to earn and to spend. Incase of business paying income tax or corporate tax one can understand the reasoning. A business thrives on the strength of the society and government's role in keeping the society thriving. Therefore a business owe it to the people to pay taxes for the profit it makes in order to create infrastructure for common good. Indirect tax is a tax one pays on the goods or services one consumes. Apart from items of basic necessities to live life... every thing else being taxed is quite right since an individual is consuming out of free will to fulfil its desire and wants. Such money collected being spent by the State on defence, police, law and order, judiciary etc is for smooth functioning of the society and in interest of an individual to maintain his or her freedom and free will. Keeping in view all the above contention - I, here by this petition request and ask our Prime Minister to abolish Personal Income Tax. It's a concept of British Rule which should be done away. Logically speaking, the money thus put in our hands will either be saved or spent. In both scenario our county will gain. First will spur investment and second will spur consumption. To meet the shortfall in revenue of the State... corporate tax or income tax on business can be raised by 5% to 10%. Since consumption will increase the business will not mind paying extra as their overall profit will increase. As there will be more saving - the access to more capital at lower rate will be available to business to expand its business. The business gains further. It is said government is the worst spender because of its inefficiency, lethargy, leakages and overall red tape. It is further said that an individual is much better and smarter spender in compare to government because of non presence of the above. The idea of Personal Income Tax can be revisited later in few decades when India and Indians by large becomes wealthier and richer second to none in the world. Once again requesting and asking you Mr. Prime Minister to abolish Personal Income Tax in larger and long term interest of our country and us... we the people.
Petition to Shri Narendra Modi
Stop Petrol & Diesel Repeated Price Hike
Kindly Stop Petrol & Diesel Repeated Price Hike - Please bring transparency in Petrol & Diesel price and bring it under GST. Kindly stop using it as a tool to make money to meet budget deficit or government's bloated uncontrollable wasteful expenditure. A Democratic Welfare Government is not about making profits on haplessness of its citizen or making windfall gain on the buying of essentials of day to day living of its entire population. Its is against the basic mandate of our constitution. Petrol & Diesel price hike not only affects directly but affects indirectly as well resulting in price hike in vegetables to every item we as a citizen consume. Its unfair to subject the poor and the salaried and others to this financial atrocity. Kindly establish good governance by accepting this petition. Thank you

LEAD US FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT - This saying holds true at every point in our life. But who can be our leaders , our role models? All of us look up for someone to motivate us either be it our parents, siblings, any relative or any dignitary. But have we ever thought of any politician as our role model?May be a few of them…. So the people who are leading our Nation , our State are not even efficient of becoming our role models. How are we letting them lead our Country and our States? How are they representing us all over the world?Don’t you think first they should be educated and intelligent enough to lead us and our states and country?We the AAM JANTA have to pass so many competitive exams and interviews to prove ourselves. To prove that we are well Knowledgeable, Educated, Proactive and Efficient enough for a particular Job either it be in the IT Industry, Core Companies, Civil Services or any Government Jobs. We work so hard Day and Night just to get a respectful Job in the society. Then don’t you think this should be made applicable for the Politicians as well. If we need to prove ourselves to them , then isn’t it their duty to prove themselves to us? So, do you think there should be a process of selecting our Politicians as well, a written exam followed by a Group Discussion and lastly an Interview? The applicant can be any Graduate. The selected candidates who crack the interview will then be given the Election Ticket and then the AAM JANTA can select their leaders through Election Voting. Just imagine the difference between the existing Politicians and the Politicians we will elect through this Procedure. Their Process of Thinking, the idea of developing our Nation, the work of Action and how they can make the big difference.If you agree Please sign the Petition and Let me know your views.Thanks.
