Social activist demands ban on post-poll alliance to bring realistic manifestos
Naresh Kadyan, Convener, Kadyan Khap International (KKI), and a social activist has lodged a complaint with the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs to make political parties accountable for their promises and manifestos with the voters ahead of Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.

Kadyan, through his email to this citizen journalist , giving the details of his complaint, duly acknowledged by R.C. Khwaja, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs vide No. MINPA/E/2014/00059 on April 24, 2014, has stated that the electorate in India have been taken for a ride since we went republic by these political parties by getting into post poll alliance.

He has further stated that when an electorate casts his/her vote he/she does so by taking into consideration the respective Political Party's manifesto, declarations and promises they make to the electorate before we cast our vote. The voters cast their vote based on these assumptions and it is nothing but a breach of trust amounting to forgery for these parties to change their stands and alliances after we cast the vote in their favour.

Kadyan has demanded that the Election Commission must ban this practice of the political parties and make them accountable for their promises and manifestos based on which they seek our votes.

Often an argument is placed by these parties that this is necessary to ensure that public money is not spent again for fresh elections if the mandate is divided however we feel this argument is very lame and senseless for a nation where the same political parties taking advantage of these situations mis-utilise tax payers money for buying selling MPs / MLA's and then go on to make huge scams running into billions of rupees, he added.

Kadyan, giving his opinion has stated that we firmly believe that if the post poll alliance is banned then the same political parties shall be forced to make realistic manifestos and shall be accountable to every promise they make to the electorate before every election.

Hence, Kadyan Khap International's convener Naresh Kadyan along with Abhishek Kadyan and Miss Sukanya Kadyan had made an appeal as responsible citizens of India, to stop this malpractice and forgery and get a cleaner electoral/political system in place.
