I'm Ready To Join Politics

Its true that change is best brought around from the inside. And India, culturally, is not given to revolution but to evolution - and thats a good thing.

But I need a political outfit that can promise me the following:

  1. The right to speak my mind. Especially when I disagree with them.
  2. An RTI like policy that the outfit responds quickly and transparently to - no fine print - whenever a member or any citizen asks a question. Add a 100/- donation to the party if you feel like with the form.
  3. A career ladder, including a decent growth path, for careerist politicians. Well laid out and transparent.
  4. Transparent sources of funding, audited accounts.
  5. One person one post.
  6. Publicly shared constitution, auditable mechanisms and processes for citizen involvement, decision making and supporting/opposing policies or legislation based on issues.
  7. Openly decided/debated list of candidates with internal elections, representation and debates. Details of decision making available through the RTI like mechanism above.
  8. Every candidate/office bearer/party member should respond to queries about personal assets, stand on issues etc if asked, esp through the RTI like mechanism.

And then, sure - count me in!
