The denigration of the parliamentary democracy by almost all the political parties is a matter of grave concern for all of us. The criminals and corrupt people have thronged the political parties; and money and muscle power have been reigning everywhere. Integrity is being replaced with corruptibility. The looting of the public exchequer has become the sole objective of joining a political party. Politics turns worse and ugly at the time of elections. The unscrupulous politicians make the best use of the gullibility of the vast majority of the rural and semi-urban voters and indifference of the educated, urban- middle- class citizens.
To make the people aware of their political rights and question the bad practices of the political parties the following organizations of the city have come together and formed a platform called Campaign for Good Governance, Assam. The Campaign for Good Governance, Assam has planned a massive mobilization of the citizens on 2 April, 2011 at 11am at Machkhowa Cultural Complex.
To brief the media about the objective of this mobilization a Press Meet is being convened tomorrow (March 23) at 11 am at Guwahati Press Club. We shall be most grateful if you send a reporter from your organization for the coverage of the Press Meet.
With kind regards,
Convener, Campaign for Good Governance, Assam
