Srikant Sastri launches online campaign asking tainted MPs/MLAs to resign

The Delhi gangrape has led to all sections of society – the media included – get together for a common cause. Srikant Sastri, Country Chairperson, Vivaki India; Entrepreneur and Social Visionary has started ‘Resign Before Jan26th’ campaign on Facebook and Twitter. The campaign is aimed to persuade political parties that the two MPs and 42 MLAs charged with crimes against women, should resign before January 26.


While the campaign has been getting a good response on social media, Mr Sastri plans to create more noise with videos- some with music; others with facts & interviews; getting people to contribute articles; enlisting support from celebrities in civil society, academia, policy, industry, arts/culture/literature; making deeper inroads into colleges; and writing to election commission, speakers of assemblies and leaders of parties. “We appeal to the leaders of all parties to ensure that these 2 MPs and 42 MLAs resign before January 26, 2013. It will be a fitting tribute to the strength of our Republic, and its ability to transform itself,” says the FB page.


The campaign began on Dec 31, and has over one thousand supporters on Facebook so far. If you agree with the message, sign it, and spread the word:
