The campaign has also been carried out in various districts including Ballari, Tumkuru, Belgaum, Shivamogga, Chikkaballapura, Hassan. The campaign has received tremendous support from the public and we have received. Public observed that the bribery activities reduced in the sub-registrar offices and middlemen were absent. While honest officials carried out their duties, many corrupt officials preferred to avail their leaves and thus stayed away from the offices.
AAP requests pro-people organizations, the media and concerned citizens to support this campaign towards the goal of Bribe Free Mangaluru.
“I am an Indian First” Campaign by AAP
AAP will also conduct the “I am an Indian First” campaign at Lalbagh traffic signal arena (Opposite MCC building) on 7th Dec 2015 at 4.00PM.
A recent survey by an international organisation showed that 83% Indians said people should have freedom to practice religion of their choice. World average is only 74%. This clearly shows that Indians want to live in peace, unity and brotherhood. But some political parties and some groups with vested interest are creating disturbances for their own electoral gains. While religion plays a very important role in personal life, AAP feels religion has no place in public life.
Hence AAP is launching ‘I am Indian’ campaign” and request all citizens to participate in the campaign and uphold the great traditional values of peace and harmony.
The above details were furnished during a Press conference conducted by Chandan and Mohana Dasari, members of AAP state committee, Rajendra Kumar, Alexander D’souza and Rohanshiri from AAP Dakshina Kannada.
