Good morning to all
present here! This is ANKIT KUMAR FROM CLASS 10 .Today I am here to
deliver a speech on topic “citizen’s right to good governance”.
Governance. It’s a big word in terms of politics .It means establishment
of policies continuous monitoring of their proper implementation, by the members
of governing body of an organization .But god governance is entirely different
thing altogether .It means different things to different people whit varying
circumstances .To some could be freedom of speech or right to vote .To other it
could avaibility of better job opportunities or just to have free internet
services provided by government. But to sensible people it means respect for
human rights ,rule of law ,strengthening of democracy ,promoting of transparency
and responsiveness of the state and it’s institutions towards the needs and
desires of the people ,and inclusive participation of people in forming of
government .All these things are also needed for a good governance .
Now let’s have a talk on qualities of a good government. A good government
should have many qualities. But the most important one’s in my mind includes
transparency, responsiveness and people’s participation in forming of
government the government.
Every good government must be transparency as people want to know about
the working of government, they want to know whether the government is working
properly or not. And everybody wishes to have a good understanding government,
who has the people’s best interest in mind. And people’s participation in
forming of government the government is one of the best ways to induce our
interest in government’s mind.
Now let’s have a view on citizen’s right to good governance. Many and
political leaders said that good governance is a fundamental and a basic right
contemplated under the constitution and can be provided to us by civil servants
if they realize there duty to people and do not think themselves as masters. I
do also believe in this.
But on the other hand cynics say that in a democracy people get the government
they deserve. This a totally wrong thing. I think in a democracy many changes
can be achieved if people fight for it collectively. A collective voice for
this will have its own better effect.
Today lack of ethics and fairness in the government is felt by common
people and also by people at higher political positions. To combat this problem
we need to take some certain measures:- like we should actively participate in governments
work like development and implementation of policies and we should also give a particular
attention to traditionally underrepresented groups such as women ,youth ,farmers
, workers , disable people, ethnic minorities and indigenous peoples.
At last I want to say that no man is good enough to govern others
without other’s consent. So we just need to give our consent to a good leader
for good governance.
