Govern Right, Govern Responsibly Charter
Campaign for a Better Bengaluru by Namma Bengaluru Foundation in partnership with Resident Welfare Associations ( RWAs) and Citizen Groups
Charter for Better Bengaluru:
The growth of Bengaluru city has outpaced its infrastructure resulting in utter urban chaos. Governance in the city needs reforms and greater transparency. Planning is critical for coping with the anticipated growth and the pressures that growth will place on infrastructure and public services. The citizens are increasingly seeking to play a bigger role in steering the development of Bengaluru and participating in the long term vision for the city.
Aimed at the newly elected MLAs, the Namma Bengaluru Foundation along with several RWAs and citizens’ groups have launched the Govern Right, Govern Responsibly campaign. This campaign is in continuation of the Vote Right, Vote Responsibly campaign which had a positive impact on the voters with an increase in turnout from 44% to 56%, demonstrating that citizens took an active and informed interest in directing our city's future.
The Govern Right, Govern Responsibly campaign is represented through a Charter that contains the aspirations of the citizens for a better governed city and thereby a better future for their families. The campaign will also develop a citizens’ platform for continuing dialogue with the elected representative along with timely appraisals of the performance of the government and the civic agencies on behalf of the citizens.
If governed right and governed responsibly by the MLAs, Corporators along with the new government, Bengaluru could and would become a shining example among the cities in India.
The Charter will be presented to the Hon’ble Chief Minister and the 23 MLAs of the city on June 07, 2013.
