“The only way to make India – a dynamic, progressive and vibrant democracy is to lay the foundations of political, economic and social justice. A system where everyone has an equal right to prosper and flourish within the framework of the Indian constitution and under the Indian flag”- said Krsishna Arjun, President of the newly formed National Democratic Reforms Party.
Announcing her resignation from the post of President of the Bhartiya Rajiv Congress before presiding over the new party – Krisshna Arjun, said politics in India today is a unique model of mis-governance where you start and end with a big farce. This is no way a country should not be governed,” she said.
“The system needs deep cleansing. God helps those who help themselves. Social, political, economic or judicial inequalities and injustices do not vanish simply by applying vanishing cream”, she added.
“If the people of India want a change – they should be prepared to contribute their time, money and effort for this change. No outsider will come and do that for them.”
“Democratic reforms, secularism and equality for all and a foolproof system in which each individual is able to live and breathe comfortably – is the ethos of my party, she said.
“We want the businessmen to prosper and progress without unnecessary hurdles. Not everyone is a cheat. If the business men and industrialists get an opportunity to earn their livelihood and progress – they will be inclined to pay taxes on time. This will open new avenues for growth, prosperity and employment for all.
If there is equality for all – men and women will get equal opportunities. Women will feel safer on the roads as well as within their homes. There will be no predatory shadows lurking to haunt them – when they are least prepared. There will be no domestic violence. Students will get equal opportunities to excel and get admitted to the courses of their choice. The youth will get employment and those wanting to become entrepreneurs will not need anyone’s recommendation for simple things like opening a bank account.
We want to create a system where Governments – are not seen as big bully or an institution only for cutting the people’s pocket. Where the police do not always use brute force but is polite, well behaved and still firm. Where the nation comes first – always and every time? Where Armed Forces are not meant to be sacrificed in war but respected in peace and suitably placed and looked after. Where the retired people are financially sound and secure in their homes and society. There is no body without a job, nobody without food, shelter or clothing.
We dream of an India where Indian feels proud to live, a country every Indian can earn enough – to say no to a foreign job. The mother in whose lap the people of Indian origin – at home far from the home, feel safe and secure and yearn to come back. A land of technology and opportunity -where the study of science, economic and history – leads to knowledge that is applied, where everything illogical, irrational and impractical is – neither encouraged nor tolerated.
We would like to create a country where the doctors and engineers – even otherwise earn decent amount that they don’t have to cut anyone’s throat or compromise professionally or rob the poor. Where the poor and downtrodden are encouraged to work hard and earn better. A country where the backward classes do not need any artificial stimulant – but are coached, mentored and encouraged to run and catch up with the rest. Such a country can only be a place where – governments don’t survive only because of subsidies and reservations – a country where religion, caste, community, sex or creed is not used to divide but unite. That is the vision of a new and powerful India that beckons us…
“All this may seem like a dream today but could be a reality tomorrow. If the people of this India – really want that India – they should be willing to give their money, time and effort to build the world’s best nation they deserve or expect to get.” Krisshna Arjun said.
