Mahadevpura MLA Candidate Manifesto 2018
Work in Progress
Mahadevapura Asks of MLA Candidates
We have learnt over 5 years that the issues we face are not because our asks are not clear. After all you don’t need us to ask for stopping sewage in lakes or garbage on streets. You don’t need us to ask for clean water and clean air for all or traffic free roads. You already know this. But you have not been able to deliver. We are therefore geared to now look for that candidate who has the real ability to deliver and are more astute in our asks.
We expect the candidate to meet the following criteria: Show Intent Infact if we could ask for only one thing, it would be for your “Intent”. We observe the speed with which anything the Govt really wants can be done - Eg Indira Canteen. Yet a simple fencing of public land is yet to be done after years. The Intent is missing..
Ability to Infleunce : Influence and ensure the appointment of Competent, Honest, Strong, Ethical officers for the posts in Mahadevapura, so they can “execute” and “deliver” successfully The Joint Commissioner, ARO do not move on Bribe free khatas. The Health Inspector does not impose any penalty on violations. The Tahsildar is blatant in his non cooperation to fence any public lands thus allowing encroachment. This along with you, you need to influence the appointment of excellent officers.
Engage: Be present at necessary forums (Legislative Assembly/Council ) to represent the constituency and be accessible to citizens on a regular basis. Support development at each level with the Wards by Engaging and influencing the BBMP Budgeting Process and Council to raise the importance of the top issues in the zone and bring resolution With the exploding population of Mahadevpura, where is the State/Central Govt attention to ramp up the infrasturcture and use the opportunity to make this a world class zone? What are the demands you are making on our behalf and where? Whether the Ward corporator is from your party or otherwise, your keen engagement and support at a ward level is crucial. Instead we often see “blocks” of the work of the corporators from the other party. Being visible and active at the BBMP Budgeting Process and Council is crucial to genuine progress of a developing area.
Execute: Ensure adequate and effective use of MLA Local Area Development (LAD) Funds, Ward Funds, Welfare Funds, Nagarothana. Work to get additional allocations of funds from State and Central Government programs. We have learnt the hard way that funding is NOT the issue. But effective usage of the funds is. Everyone knows about all percentages required. We need an MLA who has the integrity, vision and ability to effectively use all these sources of funds for our area.
Insert the Meera ask on “Trifurcation” stuff here in different words without usign the word Trifurcation.
