Public Voice for Civic issues:
Only a public voice is going to sell when it comes to fixing the nuts and bolts of our Democracy. The civic issues we face every day are either not attempted to fix or not done properly. Let’s take an example, the potholes we see on the roads get deeper and wider, no one bats an eye until it takes the lives of motorists.
What if the public gives a voice on the “things that are wrong” on their daily life. There are some initiative to this, some leads like the ‘ichangmycity’. But are people actually posting complaints and getting things resolved in their neighbourhood? My survey says 4 out of 10 people do, which is brilliant. Change is actually happening.
