Delhi Government instituted Higher Education Guarantee Scheme, fulfilling its promise to secure a child's education with a government-guaranteed loan of Rs. 10 lakhs, to helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
It was stalled for 402 days by LG.
This is criminal. /2
Delhi Government requested the LG for 1 DANICS officer per education district to help with DoE's renewed focus of monitoring and regulation of private schools.
Here's an unplanned tweethurricane that I hope will make you think and act. /1
The impunity and utter inability of the criminal justice system and sarkaar to provide security or justice to our women and children has been a slow emergency, like strangulation over six decades. #JusticeForOurChild will be a long and hard battle on multiple fronts. /2
The biggest unseen minority of India are women and children. They are systematically violated by power, mafia and income inequality. As a votebank, women's votes are traditionally influenced by males in most states and children don't have any. Causing further governance decay. /3
Landmark step by @AamAadmiParty's MP Convenor @iAlokAgarwal to further alternative politics and transparency. In a state where corporates, contractors, mafia and dynasty control political power, @AAPMPOfficial is changing the rules of the game to empower citizens. Here's how /1
.@AAPMPOfficial has at its helm @iAlokAgarwal, a daring and well-rounded anti-corruption and social activist. An alumnus of IIT Kanpur, his association and leadership in Narmada Bachao Andolan, IAC and AAP is well known and respected across geographies and professions. /2
.@AAPMPOfficial has broken the mould of traditional politics through consistent large scale agitations on people's issues, attempting to create idea based structural organizations and now provides a political alternative with a people-focused vision with honesty of purpose. /3
The outcome sought from a democracy should be to fulfill human potential and minimize suffering at the very core, through unique and complex interactions of state, market and society, and possibly set a path to exploration, enlightenment and avoidance of the extinction event. /2
India's first past the post parliamentary democracy can only ever achieve a subset of those outcomes envisioned and executed by the best of humanity. Still, given those constraints, we can expect linear problems and constants to be solved well by the state, given certain info. /3
The destruction of the larger than life mythology of a politician is necessary for our future. Myths feed power structures that exacerbate existing problems of social structure in democracies. @AAPKarnataka's campaign is a fine approach to solving this challenge. /1
The transition for India Against Corruption to @AamAadmiParty i.e. a moral transformation movement to a political party working on anti-corruption measures with a democratic lens of the world, was always going to be tricky and messy. /2
India Against Corruption raised cultural consciousness in the common citizen that the state is acting against its interests. The proximal cause was the Congress' UPA Government. The long run cause has been a lack of genuine democracy. /3
