Veteran BJP MPs give good governance mantra

Veteran BJP MPs on Friday called for concerted efforts to bridge the “governance deficit” inherited by the present dispensation from the previous UPA regime and suggested measures for good governance that included tackling the problem of open defecation to help make ‘Clean India’ mission
a success.

The MPs including senior leader L K Advani, who were consulted by the party leadership for views on good governance, suggested ways that included generating awareness on the issue to enable people’s participation in decision making and accountability.

The measures were sought by the government at the instance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who announced on Tuesday at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting that former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee’s birthday would be observed as “Good Governance Day” on December 25.

The two issues of good governance and ‘Clean India’ were discussed at on Friday’s meet of veteran BJP MPs elected to Parliament thrice or more. The meeting attended by 35 MPs is part of the series of such meetings that concluded on Friday.

The BJP veterans have suggested that awareness activities be taken up to sensitise all stakeholders to the need for good governance by organizing camps and workshops in each Assembly constituency with particular involvement of youth.

In his address, Advani described open defecation as “shamful to the nation” and sought measures to address it in all seriousness.
