Laws Governing Transparency .

1. There is no doubt that at any given point of time there will be areas or issues or matters that will, by nature be confidential and will not lend themselves for open dissemination or discussion. However, these must be kept to a minimum and must genuinely fall within the bounds of what can be defined as of national security, Public interest or otherwise confidential.

2. To ensure there is no abuse of this provision, there will be need to form a Oversight Commission of the very highest order comprising individuals of uncompromising ethics and principles who are sworn to secrecy and to uphold the integrity of the constitution of India and that of the party. This committee will scrutinize all matters to be excluded from Public discussion or widespread dissemination and will decide if the matter should be kept out of the Public domain.

3.  Apart from these exceptions, the Principle of complete and utter transparency will apply to all matters within the Party or affecting the Party and it’s membership. This would be in terms of organizational structure, functioning, decision-making, implementation, idea exchanges, public interest, and all issues within the Public domain.

4.  Open and free discussion, even if controversial, is to be encouraged within all organs of the party. This is designed to minimize, if not eliminate petty politicking that thrives in an atmosphere of secrecy and backbiting. Such Phenomena is inimical to the efficient and free functioning of a true democracy and for its long term health that would command respect amongst the wider public.TO BE ADDED - BY ANYONE
