My Symbol : Sandclock | Hourglass

Election Symbol of Arunkanth V, Sand Clock - Hour glass

Manifesto of Arunkanth V - English Version

This symbol has been chosen which depict we have only a limited time in the world and the countdown has started years back. Let us do good deeds and go away peacefully.  

Kindly Note : The below points are the ones that I will give Voice for if I win or lose to make sure the Central Government which comes to govern the country takes into consideration for analysis & implementation. 

Here we go ….  

1: I will work towards eradicating the Symbolism & Party System and create a level playing field for independent candidates. I shall also try to convince the election commission of India to introduce a red button and green button in the voting machine where every voter has an option to De-vote a candidate who has cheated them by not keeping up their promises. Such negative votes must be deducted from total votes polled and then the result must be declared. This shall make only good people win elections and provide a level playing field for newcomers.  

2: Another major vision is to create a Happy & a Healthy Nation more than a developed Nation. Being happy, healthy and contended shall be the purpose of life. All my ideas and suggestions shall be focused on this vision.  

3: I shall continuously create awareness about educating the public on Geo Politics and how it affects them in their day to day life and the next generation.  

4: Educating about lifestyle changes to people to lead a healthy life via continuous camps organized by volunteers every week in the city.  

5: Educating people about how they can protect themselves from daily financial scams that pop up. A ‘Scam Alert’ app shall be initiated.   

6: Abolishing the Pass & Fail concepts in the education system and creating a culture where companies start to recruit candidates based on knowledge / skills and not just certificates. Tons of Streaming TV channels shall provide education on all possible subjects and topics by teachers across the world where our citizens can access it at a cost that is completely affordable by all. This shall also create additional earning possibilities for any freelance teachers who wish to provide education for all by themselves online. There shall be a Hop-in Hop-out academy established for anyone to learn any topic at anytime and develop their skills. This is for people who believe ' I need knowledge and skill and I am least interested in Certificates'.

7: Freelancing culture in all the industries using a world class web portal will be introduced. Let people decide their own salary for their experience. This will encourage people to develop their skills to get employment, as I strongly believe that there is no unemployment and there is only a situation of ‘unfit for employment’. 

8: Bringing in single window system to give refund to private associations who do self development works in their respective areas instead of waiting for the local corporation to address the problems.  

9: Will stress on banking reforms to give funding to startup companies, MSMEs for Marketing and not just producing and also build an ecosystem to make new innovations visible in the market. Shall work towards convincing government to set up malls exclusively for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises. The shops will be rent free with a small revenue share to maintain the mall.    

10: Bring in fresh system that monitors rent control norms to curb unreasonable real estate prices that cause harm the ease of living and protecting business from depleting their capital on rents.  

11: Making Gardeners government employees and recruit massive number of gardeners who will maintain multi story buildings terrace gardens to create green cover in a compulsive manner. 

12: Make fountains in every 2 sq km to make sure there are water bodies for the city birds to drink water as they cannot go to the shop to buy a mineral water bottle by paying through UPI and also to make our city look beautiful.  

13: Will take efforts to set up a Seperate radio station & tv channel to support independent music and independent films and make a decent monetizing model for independent content creators as currently they have no source of a decent income as their internet revenue is less than what a beggar earns per transaction / offering.  

14: Convince the GST council to increase the GST rates to additional 100% for movies with U/A and A certification where the movie has violence, too much negativity, drug usage and other psychological harmful content. That extra money should go as a benefit to movie makers who provide feel good content for our society. Will also take steps to eradicate all the scams in every division of filmmaking to protect the investors and talents, as there is a Non-Investor friendly market currently prevailing in our country for new & upcoming talents. (Note : The entire scam and unethical business practices and solutions to curb them is outlined in the Website.) 

15: The advertising industry needs a revamp to make sure products and services are not advertised through stories and exaggeration using celebrities and the advertisements must carry only facts.  

16: Bring in press and media reforms to create a culture to post 80% positive news and make them create a seperate section to support new / upcoming talents and good people in the society who perform positive actions. Such people deserve a spotlight every single day which does not exist. Friendly Reminder : The Press / Media is suppose to be the 4th Pillar of Democracy. 

17: Will voice for major medical reforms in medical education system in such a way that being a doctor is no more a lucrative business and medical education will be given to candidates only with social worker mindset. There will be no salaries to doctors and nurses, as their families will be given a decent living by the government.  

18: Massive scrutiny of existing medicines for their worthiness must be initiated on a war footing. Vaccines must be introduced only after 10 Yr. research and 100% success rate post which they will be made available as optional and never compulsory.  

19: Stop external countries investing into indian medical systems & food industry to protect the safety of our population which is our strength and creating an Indian Hub for indigenous medicine making. This is highly necessary to prevent bio-war and sabotage of our population.  

20: Bring in reforms to restrict social media access for any content viewing that cause psychological damage & content that depletes the lifestyle and time of our citizens which has no positive benefit. A massive list of websites and apps that push such content will be banned.  

21: Will study the possibilities to bring legal reforms to make sure lawyers also become accountable if they knowingly support and protect a criminal using loopholes in the system and not disclosing such info in the courts. Law education shall be provided to volunteering social service workers who will be a support to people without funds for legal activities.

Companies can post about their experience in handling projects on the same portal. Tender shall be issued based on people’s opinion and this shall bring only meritorious companies to handle projects.

30: Government owned properties, offices, and buildings will be renovated to superior quality standards with additional multi-storey structures to create private co-working spaces in the additional space created and also to provide optional accommodation to employees in the same building. This plan will also generate revenue to maintain the government offices buildings and also ease the traffic chaos.  

31: Night Shift work culture to be completely eradicated as it is against nature and it affects the health and well being of our citizens. Flexible work timings shall be introduced where people can choose to work whenever they are comfortable and their salaries will be based on their contribution of work. This will create a healthy work atmosphere and also create an ecosystem that makes good workers earn better than lazy unprofessional workers. This will also encourage people to spend more time with their families.

Any queries you have regarding this manifesto shall be answered only via email, as I also need to know whether the person raising the query is serious about discussions. Such queries can be raised from the Contact form.

Why you should Vote for an independent candidate ? To make sure the votes of the mainstream candidates shall be reduced proportionately so that they get a scare in their mind to keep up their promises and behave in a good way. They need to know people will slowly stop supporting them if they do not behave appropriately or unethically. This is also like have a good opposition.
