Chief Minister’s Office, Block – I,
AP Secretariat, Velagapudi
Dear Sri Chandrababu Naidu garu,
I congratulate you on your wise decision to refer the Clinical Establishment Act, 2010 as enacted by Parliament under Article 252 of the Constitution to a Select Committee of the State Legislature.
In no other democracy does the federal constitution impose a uniform structure, electoral system, and bureaucratic apparatus on states and local governments.
We need to allow each state to have its own model of governance, bureaucracy and local governments, but with firm safeguards.
Former AP Chief Secretary’s book flags issues weakening democratic institutions
Hyderabad: Retired IAS officer and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Secretary Ajeya Kallam said citizenship is not only a right but also a duty. It is time for the people, particularly youth, to lead the charge and put ‘derailed democracy’ back on track, restore autonomy of institutions and check worsening corruption, he said.
Loksatta began as a citizen's movement in 1996 to help promote electoral and governance reforms. Loksatta Party was born in 2006 out of the realization that the best and brightest of society need to embrace politics. It is the party for the new generation, a generation that is sick and tired of dynastic and vote bank politics, a generation that has no time for politics run by the unholy trinity of corruption, greed and nepotism.
