2. The candidate will spend as less money as possible in fighting the election. She or he will not be flamboyant or extravagant. Election will be fought by taking donations from the people. Complete transparency will be observed in accounts.

3. There will be no significant change in the lifestyle of the candidate if she or he wins the election. The candidate should remain easily accessible and be available for the people just like before.

4. Election canvassing will be done more through people to people contact instead of resorting to expensive ways of campaigning.

7. The candidate will not keep any weapon for her or his protection and even after winning will not arrange weapons for her or his protection.

8. The candidate will not use any professional people or ways for election campaigning. For example, paying to get the news published in the newspaper is one such activity.

9. People should engage in election campaigning for a candidate with the feeling of support instead of getting paid for it.

10. The election will be contested on common people’s issues and not based on religion, caste or any such factor.
