Petition to Honourable President of India, Sri. Ram Nath Kovind

Condemn the undemocratic attitude of TelanganaGovt on the dismissal of 50000 RTC employees

Condemn the undemocratic attitude of Telangana State government Support the strike of TSRTC workers on just demands. About 50,000 workers (including bus drivers, conductors and administrative staff) have been on strike for the last six days to achieve their just demands and the state government is handling the crisis in public transport in a vindictive and undemocratic fashion. We, the concerned citizens, would like to bring the salient issues of the strike and the government attitude to the notice of the people at large to seek your solidarity with the strike and to request you to demand the government to mend its ways. The strike is, in fact, an attempt to protect public transport in the state. Though the charter consists of 26 demands, major demands of the striking workers are not concerned with their financial benefits and they pertain to reviving the ailing public sector public transport corporation. The strikers are demanding the government to make TSRTC as one of its departments, instead of keeping it as a corporation. Indeed, this is the promise given by the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao during the Telangana movement and he repeated it several times. He also promised to provide parity to the RTC staff with the government employees in terms of wages. Even after six years of his governance, neither the RTC was merged with the government, nor the salaries of the RTC staff made equivalent to government employees. As on today, an RTC employee gets Rs 20,000 less salary than his counterpart in the government. The other demands include, regular payment of dues of the government to the corporation (the government had to pay Rs 2.822 crore to RTC during 2014-19 and paid only Rs 638 crore), purchase of new buses to increase the fleet of the corporation (during the last five years not even a single bus was included), extension of services to rural areas (even after Telangana formation there are more than 1,000 villages without bus connectivity), exemption of taxes on diesel (while the neighbouring Tamil Nadu and Kerala governments are taking responsibility of price rise as well as tax on diesel Telangana government is throwing that burden on the corporation, driving it into losses), better working conditions (indefinite working hours, arbitrary suspension and removal of drivers and conductors, unbearable work pressure, etc.), and recruitment commensurate with the need (there has been no recruitment and more and more areas are being outsourced). A Joint Action Committee of various trade unions in TSRTC have given strike notice well in advance, as per the law and have gone into a strike from October 5, 2019. The government that did not take any meaningful, positive action before the strike, came out with a vindictive, brutal and undemocratic statement on the strike day. The Chief Minister himself said all the employees will be terminated if they do not join by the evening of the strike day and it will be considered as “self-dismissal”. With a single pen stroke, he announced that about 48,000 employees are dismissed. He even directed RTC Hospital and other government hospitals not to provide medicare to striking workers and their families. He also said new recruitment will take place with an undertaking from the new employees not to form unions. This is against the Constitution of India and all existing labour laws in the country.  The government has also stopped payment of salaries for the last month, which the workers are legally entitled. Consequently, the families of the workers have been undergoing untold suffering that led to an attempt to suicide by many workers. Two workers, a driver and a conductor have succumbed to the attempt. Even then the government is brutally indifferent.   Unperturbed with this vindictive attitude, the workers are still continuing the strike and it is the bounden duty of every freedom-loving, democratic-minded person to support the strike, express solidarity with the striking workers as well as to condemn the government’s attitude and demand the government to initiate the process of an amicable resolution of the crisis.    Please support the strike of TSRTC workers to meet their demands.

Petition to Election Commision of India

Urge Election Commission to Provide Easily Accessible "KNOW YOUR LEADER WEB PORTAL"

Today's elections had become prohibitively expensive for any honest and Poor Neta to participate it's increasingly because of all the noise that our Neta's have to Pierce through to convey their message to influence citizens and his supporters. Election campaign spending in social media and internet Corruption in india and its political landscape (Neta's have to literally compete with commercial ads of consumer goods, enterprise,whole entertainment industry and they are at the mercy of news channels to get an half an hour of time to convey their message which is hard to come by if he is a newbie/not backed by established party.Of course media people don't have enough bandwidth to promote every contesting Neta which further makes it more exclusive, I feel it's unnecessary to mention how expensive organizing a rally or big event is and how inefficient they are in conveying necessary information to make informed choice.Though they should happen less frequently to symbolize celebration of democracy) So if ELECTION COMMISSION OF INDIA provides a easily accessible Single window "KNOW YOUR LEADER WEB AND APP PORTAL" for all elections, we can create a level playing field for all contestants and also achieve goal of informing citizens with legitimate information of Neta, their views on development, manifesto,contestants with criminal background,wealth,education etc. By doing this we can curb money power/campaign expenses so that the guy with bigger voice, resources (media presence) is as FAMILIAR as with the guy with none, which further helps citizens in electing person who brings more value to table than more money and resources. The details to be included in web or app portal are. General information about Neta All information provided in affidavit submitted along with an option to filter contestants with criminal cases with brief description about cases,if possible link to their e-court services portal. Option to have a personal bio written by Neta himself. Option for manifesto file (PDF) A video from Neta. Links to his social media account or page. ability to share page.(across social media,sms etc) Please sign this petition to force election commission to make this service available for Loksabha 2019 election.   UI design of App or Web portal

Petition to Mr. Narendra Modi, Mr. Ram Nath Kovind

Mr. Modi, We the people of India want your resignation.

Why we are doing this? This is not a politically motivated petition. We write this because we are concerned about the national security of our country, the safety of our men & women in the armed forces and the unacceptable influence big business houses have on this Govt. Through the Rafale matter, it has become clear, that the Modi govt. will go to any lengths, put at stake anything to help its friends make money. Who in turn fund construction of expensive BJP offices, election campaigns and BJP's PR machinery. This unholy nexus has to be done with. Refer list of invitees to the PM Modi's Paris visit where the deal was announced. No prizes for guessing who was at the top of the list. Even BJP old timers have criticized the govt. on this deal. As a first step, we demand the resignation of our Hon'ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose govt. has time and again mislead the nation on this matter and is clearly a significant partner in this unholy nexus. You don't believe us ? Read the French Report on How Modi Govt Pushed Anil Ambani as Rafale Deal Partner. What are we talking about? The recent statements by ex-Prez. of France have put a serious question mark on the integrity of the Defense Ministry, Finance Ministry and the PMO. The "Business Friendly" Modi govt. has always been accused of being partial to business houses of India. That the friendship would trump India's national security itself has been an eye-opener. Not only has the Rafale deal cost 3 times than originally intended to the tax payer, Indian govt's push for selection of Reliance Defense as partner to Dassault has also raised questions on Modi govt's attitude towards National Security of the country. The Modi govt. first made a flip flop in Parliament on commercials of the deal, it then deemed HAL as an unfit partner for Dassault and claimed it had nothing to do with Reliance Defense being selected as a partner, all highlight the multiple attempts the Modi govt. has made to conceal facts from the public and mislead the nation.HAL, a govt. owned unit has 70 years of experience in aircraft manufacturing. It has worked on LCA Tejas, Sukhoi Su-30MKI and other aircrafts. Whereas, Reliance Defense has ZERO experience in aircraft manufacturing. In fact it was less than a month old when it was awarded the contract. However, defying all common sense, Modi govt., deemed HAL unfit to partner with Dassault. Ex-HAL chief TS Raju told HT, "When HAL can build a 25-tonne Sukhoi-30, a fourth-generation fighter jet that forms the mainstay of the air force, from raw material stage, then what are we talking about? We could have definitely done it (licence produced the Rafale jets)". The selection of Reliance Defense as partner to Dassault in such a critical deal has made India unsafe. In a neighbourhood with two not so friendly nuclear powers at our borders, national security takes paramount importance. Based on his government's attempts to mislead the nation on this matter we consider Prime Minister Narendra Modi unfit for the office that she holds. Therefore, we demand his resignation in the interest of national security. We all should speak in one voice and let it be known that money cannot run this country and we will not allow people to sell this country to big business houses. Facts for your perusal: Our hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi announces, India will purchase 36 Rafale fighter jets off the shelf from Dassault, a French aircraft builder Inter-governmental agreement with France signed. India to pay about Rs.58,000 crore or 7.8 billion Euros for 36 off-the-shelf Dassault Rafale twin-engine fighters (3 times higher than the cost under UPA) France to invest 20% of 7.8 billion Euros into local production of Rafale components Defense Minister Sitharaman does a flip flop in Parliament, agrees to reveal price of Rafale aircraft and later backtracks citing a secret agreement preventing her from revealing commercial details of the deal French Prez. Macron says he has no objection if PM Modi wants to share some details under the secrecy clause Reliance Defense, less than a month old company with ZERO experience in aircraft manufacturing is chosen as an offset partner to Dassault Reliance Defense and Govt. claim that choice of offset partner was with Dassault and Govt. had no role to play Francois Hollande states that Indian Government chose Anil Ambani for Rafale deal French journal Mediapart has quoted ex-French Prez. Francois Hollande as saying: "We did not have a say in this... the Indian government proposed this service group and Dassault negotiated with (Anil) Ambani group. We did not have a choice, we took the partner who was given to us." Even BJP old timers Yashwant SInha & Arun Shourie have criticized the govt. - The entire deal was a "textbook case of criminal misconduct, of misuse of public office and of enriching parties at the expense of the national interest and national security", they alleged, adding there was an "effort" by the government to "conceal" facts
