Prism, a New Delhi-based social organisation, which has been spreading constitutional rights among people since 1993, has decided to field its candidate for the Mandi parliamentary byelection.

The organisation has been conducting seminars, workshops and awareness campaigns throughout the country to raise the issue that why common people are deprived of their fundamental rights of shelter, security, food, education and employment.

“The organisation feels that the Indian constitution has to be rewritten because the present constitution divided people into poor, helpless and powerful people category and the purpose of democratic rights of the citizen of India is defeated,” said CK Upmanyu, national adviser of Prism.

He added that the organistaion had realised that without entering Parliament House, the voice of change in constitution would not be heard.

Prism national treasurer Rahul Yadav said, “The organisation has proposed the constitution of “Bharatavarsha” and as a first step to eradication of “failure system” and to lay the foundation of a new system, Prism has decided to find capable people amongst the masses and send them to Parliament.”

He added that Prism would be contesting the upcoming Mandi byelection and was looking for committed, honest and dedicated individuals as a candidate.

He said, “When we look around us, we find utter chaos and confusion. All political and economic systems appear to be collapsing and everyone is feeling disillusioned and disheartened. At this juncture, prototype change is a must. Everyone seems to talk about changes, but no one has the faintest idea as to what the change would be like and how to achieve it,” he added.

“Prism feels that its fight is not against any party or any individual as changing the people at helm will not solve the problem or affect the common man. We are talking about nationalisation of the education system which ultimately converts into employment. It cannot be achieved under the present constitution and needs numerous changes,” said Manoj Chaudhary, convener of Prism.

Chaudhary said Prism has propounded the theory of “Theistic Dynamic Equilibrium” for complete and prototype change in the system.

“This is the mythological base for road map to all types of changes, including educational reforms, political reforms, administrative reforms, judicial reforms, economical reforms and social and cultural reforms. Since the new order will also be democratic, hence it is mandatory that we begin with constitutional changes that will provide the base for further changes,” he added.

He added that Prism was definitely not a political organisation, but entered politics to achieve the target of providing fundamental justice and rights to common people and wish the people join hands with the organisation.
