The Vice President of India Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu emphasized the need for people to elect their representative based on exclusively 4Cs — Character, Conduct, Calibre and Capacity.
While releasing a book ‘Suparipalana’ the Telugu translation of “Echo T Calling: Towards People-Centric Governance” which is written by Telangana Chief Secretary, Shri S K Joshi, the Vice President conveyed that people need to elect their representative based on exclusively 4Cs — Character, Conduct, Calibre and Capacity. He also expressed regret that it is done based on otherwise: People elect their representative based on other 4Cs — Caste, Community, Cash and Criminality. He reiterated in his statement
“Citizen-centric governance will come from governance-centric electorate”
The Vice President said that good governance is essential to fulfilling the aspirations of the people and ensuring that various schemes were implemented effectively. Good governance was also equally important to fulfil the aspirations of the people. “Happiness comes with good governance”, he added.
Describing elected governments as ‘holders of public trust’, Shri Naidu advised them to act responsibly and serve the people conscientiously. He called for streamlining the government’s efforts to make the ease of living better for all citizens.
