For inclusion in manifesto under Governance
     
"Bureaucrats in free India will be CITIZEN bureaucrats. They will have 
rights to speak out as citizens, both on general issues of governace as 
well as on the private secrets of political leaders, which are not 
covered under the Official Secrets Act. They wll not merely watch as 
helpless spectators of the decadence they observe around themselves. If 
they do so they would be discharged from service once their connivance 
is discovered. To allow a corrupt Minister to linger on in power through 
negligence to build a case and to inform the people, is a crime and 
would be treated as such."
     
for approval.
