Happy Republic day to all of you. Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950.
Let us reflect on what it means, being a ‘Republic’ means that an elected official rules over us and not an appointed one. However due to the British Raj system still in effect a lot of our lives get governed by appointed officials. This includes key roles like the Collector (DC) and Superintendent of Police (SP) for each district.
What we propose is that the government actually hold elections in each District to appoint the DC and SP. This will convert us into a true ‘Republic’.
