Sone Ki Chidiya

Supratim Basu
back
Dear Friend,

It is my privilege to forward to you the first edition of the Sone Ki Chidiya total reform agenda for your consideration.

The agenda has been prepared by the Sone Ki Chidiya Federation, a Trust in Delhi, formed in 2013 to promote liberal values in public life. It emphasizes freedom comes first, but with accountability. Our government must be small but strong. We should have low taxation, free enterprise (state owned enterprises should be largely privatised), and corruption should be eliminated.

The agenda is recommended for adoption by any Indian political party, fully or in part. We note, though, that there is a crying need for a liberal-conservative political party, to fill the vacuum created after the dissolution, in the early 1970s, of the erstwhile Swatantra Party, founded by C. Rajagopalachari (Rajaji) and MinooMasani. Some of our members are (separately) supportive of ongoing efforts to develop such a party.

You may prefer to first read the Executive Summary on pages 1 and 2, and the remaining at your leisure.

The second edition of the agenda will be published next year. Any suggestions for addition/alteration are welcome and should be sent to Sanjeev Sabhlok at sabhlok@gmail.com.

We seek your in-principle endorsement of the agenda and any public comment you may wish to make in support of this approach. Your endorsement can be made either through an email to info@sonekichidiya.in or at our website.

In addition, any donation, small or large, is welcome to keep this effort going. No tax exemption is available at the moment, but we commit to publishing our audited accounts on our website. Bank remittance details are given below:
