Mangaluru, Sep 29, 2022: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) – Dakshina Kannada District Branch is taking a visionary initiative to address the needs of the citizens by launching its Civic Grievance Portal on Sunday, October 2nd (Gandhi Jayanti Day), 2022, at Bejai Church Hall, Mangaluru, at 10:30 a.m. Justice Michael Saldanha, former Justice (retired) of the Bombay High Court and Karnataka High Court, has kindly consented to be the chief guest. AAP District President Sri Santosh Kamath will preside over the function.
The scope of the portal will cover the entire jurisdiction of Mangaluru City Corporation (all 60 wards). Any citizen of Mangalore can register their grievances or post photos and videos of the issues faced by the public of that ward on this portal. The district team of AAP will take up the issue and help the citizens solve their problems in consultation with the respective authorities in MCC, said Sri Venugopal Puchupadi, the General Secretary of AAP DK and the man behind this unique portal. If necessary, AAP will also give representation before the administration and fight for the rights of the citizens.
The Aam Aadmi Party is known for its belief in the Swarajya Model of governance. Hence, the portal is being launched on Gandhi Jayanti Day to signify our commitment to take governance closer to the people. This portal is being set up mainly because elected representatives like MPs, MLAs, and Corporators are not listening to the voice of the people. Though the Mangaluru City Corporation has introduced the system of Ward Committees to encourage greater interaction and involvement between the citizens and their elected representatives, these committees are not functioning satisfactorily. MCC’s own grievance portals, such as Janahitha, are also not effective.
Under the able leadership of National Convener Sri Arvind Kejriwal, AAP has been successfully delivering quality education, quality health services and corruption-free governance in Delhi and Punjab and is making inroads in every state of India. We urge all the citizens to join hands with the APP DK District branch and take Mangaluru on the path of progress.
AAP District President Santosh Kamath, District General Secretary Venugopala Puchhappady, Women’s Wing President, AAP Mangalore South Assembly Constituency Benet Navitha Moras, and AAP District Media/Social Media POC Venkatesh Baliga, civil engineer Ravi Prasad were present during the press meet.
We request esteemed members of the media to give wide coverage to this unique pro-people initiative.
