Please help make the Manifesto better, or accept it, and propagate it!
Mr. Vittal's ZTZ: from 

All the right ideas, except a few: enhance the salaries of MPs/ MLAs
drastically and remove election expense limits + fully transparent
accounts. Will write to Mr.Vittal soon.

Also, would ALL IAS officers on this list be willing to put up their annual
property return (submitted to government annually) on the IPI web site for
the public? If at least 3 officers agree, I will put up my return on IPI's
web page along with them, to mark a beginning in self-disclosure. 

Another thing: it is important to empower people with 'secret' eyes and
ears to tap into conversations and scenes of corruption, which usually
leaves no written trace. Would anyone guide us to the web sites which offer
list of such equipment?
