With an aim to highlight the absence of moral code of ethics and conduct among the current dispensation, All India Professionals’ Congress (AIPC) Delhi on Friday, January 25 organised an interactive session on Value-Based Politics - Need of the Hour at NCUI Auditorium, Delhi.
The discussion was a conscious effort at generating awareness amongst the civilians about how the politics practiced today has transgressed from being about the welfare of the state to just empty rhetoric.
The speakers in the discussion elaborated upon how mud-slinging, name-calling, disrupting parliament proceedings, disrespecting women, cherry-picking data, and many other such cringing activities have become the norm for the current ruling party. The BJP leaders have on many occasions, produced fake information and propagated rumors to instill hatred among communities. The forced polarisation of the community and divisive policies has put the secularism under danger and is tearing apart the fabric of our democracy.
Alternatively, the leaders of the Indian National Congress have believed in respecting the cultural diversity of the nation and fashioned their conduct to not hurt the sensibilities of the citizens.
Dr Ameeta Sinh, Acting Regional Coordinator- AIPC North Zone President - AIPC, Uttar Pradesh who was the keynote speaker at the event said, “Leaders at Indian National Congress, do not believe in moral-less political conduct. Unlike, the current ruling party, the Congress party has followed the examples of value-based politics set as an example by the founding members of the party and will continue to do so in the years to come.”
The last four years have witnessed a deep nosedive in the way the BJP leaders conduct themselves. The silence from the top leader of the nation on crucial subjects like Unnao or Kathua highlights the misplaced conscience of the ruling party.
All India Professionals’ Congress reaffirmed its belief that an environment where ethics, moral code and values are absent from political conduct, can only result in a nation that emulates chaos, anarchy and divisiveness. The purpose of this interaction was to strike a conversation around this increasing unethical norm which is not normal by any civilisation standards.
The interactive session comprised of eminent panellists, Smt. Sheila Dikshit- DPCC President, Former Chief Minister- Delhi, Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi- MP, Rajya Sabha, Dr Sanjay Sinh- MP, Rajya Sabha, and Acharya Pramod Krishnam- Spiritual Guru & Social activist.
The All India Professionals’ Congress (AIPC), a key department of the Indian National Congress, is India’s first political platform focused on the needs and aspirations of working professionals and entrepreneurs in the country. The idea of AIPC germinated from the assessment that professionals in today’s India are disconnected from politics, a starkly different situation from the first couple of decades after Indian independence.
