reasons not to lose faith in the system

Dear Honorable Sadananda Gowdaji,
We apolitical non partisan karnataka citizens, who expected heaven and were shown hell, over the past few years
were totally turned off by BJPs antics .
But we have developed grudging admiration for the way you have continued to maintain a smiling demeanour despite severe administrative and
political constraints.
Also have been demonstrating with well intended actions, giving us hope that some thing can be done in this state.
On all our behalf we hope that you grow from strength to strength and will be the beginning
of a new image for BJP.
The obvious step motherly bias from our own administration exhibited towards rightful and lawful citizens complaints -particularly because of corruption more can be expected from the violators!- has been very disheartening.
All this will hopefully change for the better soon..
What prompts this letter is todays TOI two news items which in a way culminate my 4 decade fight after returning to India, for civic, consumer and citizens rights.
1. Caught using cell you may lose your DL,
2. Get Utilities fixed in 72 hours .
A few more equally important steps to Make Namma Bengaluru - ನಮ್ಮ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು-, ಪ್ರಪಂಚದ ಮಾದರಿ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು - world class city. A model for the rest of the state and country to follow.
1. Ban Honking damaging 8000 innocent citizens every honk, mercilessly penalize public endangerment traffic violations like
oneway violations, underaged driving, wheelies, redlight jumping, reckless overtaking, failure to yield to pedestrians and right of way traffic, kerb driving,under 279.
2. Bring the right to question, answerability and accountability of public officials into the hands of the citizens.

That atleast in my 60th year- 11.11 am 11-11-2011, will permit me to rest satisfied that all these years of struggle was not a wasted effort.
As every single person who knew my efforts, advised and continues to do so even now!
However I have retained my faith in the Indian grievance redressal system in general by the results that I have gotten that it is better than the US.
