Respected sir
Sub: Poll promises of political parties request to enforce model code of conduct reg.
Ref: 1. TDP, TRS, YSRCP Manifestos for 2014 Assembly elections and promises by Sri. Chandra Babu Naidu, K. Chandra Sekhara Rao and YS Jagan and their party leaders during election campaign
2. Model Code of Conduct issued by Election Commission section VIII on Manifestos
As the elections are approaching we the Farmers Organisations working with lakhs of farmers in Andhra Pradesh (including Telangana) find that the political parties are making poll promises to woo the voters violating the model code of conduct issued by the EC.  Some of the promises made are impossible to fulfil and have huge burden on the exchequer.
In this situation, we request the Election Commission to immediately intervene and order all the political parties

  • to detail out the terms and conditions of all poll promises and the budgetary implications and sources of the funds as per the Model Code of Conduct issued by Election Commission section VIII on Manifestos based on Supreme court judgement.
  • As the voting would be influenced by these promises we also request you to kindly issue guidelines to ensure that the election promises are fulfilled by the Party/Party alliances which forms the government, otherwise the voters can move to court requesting the implementation of the same.
  • If the political parties are not abiding the model code of conduct regarding the manifestos, we request the Election Commission to cancel their party registration and bar their leaders from contesting in further elections.

Thanking you sir
Yours sincerely
