A democratic setup can never be successful without people’s participation. Citizen participation is instrumental in achieving good governance and helps in decision-making process. It facilitates the government in understanding citizens’ viewpoint and getting their feedback. Moreover, our commitment towards creating a free world devoid of any prejudices and biases can only be achieved if people can ask question and raise issues. This will also keep us in tuned with ground reality. So, I encourage each and every citizen to freely discuss various issues, ask solution to your specific problem and most importantly question us on our functioning.
