Event jointly organised by the IIT Delhi Alumni Association and Freedom Team of India http://freedomteam.in/ (a registered Trust). Draft event flyer.
The discussion will focus on issues in "governance" in India, the present situation and how can it be improved.
India’s governance shows no sign of improving, stumbling from one crisis to another. Our security is threatened, our economic growth stumbles every few years, we have terrible infrastructure, and one of the lowest standard of living in the world. There are more poor people in eight states of India than in the 26 countries of sub-Saharan Africa.
FTI is a forum for policy, strategy, and leadership development to promote our freedom. FTI registered as a non-for-profit Trust in Indore on 1 July 2009, and its detailed Rules of governance include a stringent Code of Conduct.
FTI is a team of leaders who identify with freedom and everything it implies, such as:
+ Enforcement of rule of law
+ Law and order, and equal justice
+ Accountable government
+ Equal opportunity for all
+ Tolerance of all but pandering to none
+ Prosperity through free enterprise and minimal regulation
The Freedom Team is actively looking for leaders to come together to lead India to freedom. FTI is not a political party. You can join us if you believe in the ideas of freedom.
FTI’s first task is to bring together outstanding leaders – individuals of unimpeachable integrity and sound liberal thinking.
