With an aim set the agenda for 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) has launched National Agenda Forum (NAF). The unique citizen-centric initiative, which I-PAC says is a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary year, aims to formulate an actionable agenda for 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
NAF is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's 18-point Constructive Programme, which outlined the key priorities for independent India in 1945.
NAF, which is being supported by more than 25,000 youth volunteers from 1,788 colleges spread over 530 districts across India, aims to resurrect the conversation around Mahatma Gandhi's vision and use it to reimagine and co-create India's priorities by mobilizing more than 1 crore citizens across the country.
One of the main motoves of NAF is to formulate an actionable agenda for contemporary India and choose a leader who could take this agenda forward.
NAF has 4 key action points:
1.Share the vision: Make the nation aware of Gandhiji's 18-point constructive programme
2. Set the Agenda: Reimagine and co-create India's key priorities and help formulate an actionable agenda for contemporary India.
3. Choose the Leader: Nominate the leader best suited to adopt and execute this agenda.
4. Campaign for India: Help the chosen leader to get elected in the upcoming General Elections in 2019.
Once the results are out on August 15, youth volunteers would meet the chosen leader in September-October.
