Dear Medha Patkar, you may not be most fav contestant or social worker, but certainly you have risen to a higher level into my eyes. People believe you, harass you or even keep mum, but none dares to oppose you. (I can see a criminal charge being addressed against you in the comment, thats all these all-fb-good BJP supoorters can do, Google out a link but wont come out to help their own NaMo leader. I wonder they also know their local leader, qk banners pe sabse bada foto to Nimmo ka hi hai)
Big Story No 1 AK In Amethi Big Story no 2 Medha Patkar original supporters from Narmada Andolan from 15 states have arrived to campaign for her THAT IS HUGE !! Big story no 3. Even a maid in Amritsar says "jhaadu waaleyan da zor hai pind ch" The villages around Amritsar city are completely fans of Kejriwal !! Big win expected for Dr Daljit Singh. Calls coming from NRIs scolding their relations in Amritsar not to vote for drug mafia and criminal BJP Akali Dal Big Story no 4 Yogendra Yadav joining rally of Meera Sanyal this afternoon at 2 pm at Fancy Market mohd.

Respect for Medha Patkar has increased 100 Times. Only 4 days left for her Campaigning. And she is in Madhya Pradesh to campaign for others.
People from different parts of India at Ghatkopar in support of Medha Patkar. Vilas Bongade, Bhusawal, Rajendra Ravi from Delhi, Sunilam Samajwadi from Madhya Pradesh, Kailash Meena from Rajasthan, P T Hussain from Kerala.
Wow medha patkar is contesting election for AAP . Her contribution in social work is commendable
1. Priya Dutt 2. Milind Deora 3. Gurudas Kamat 4. Medha Patkar All above are best choice to vote for this election.
AAP Candidate from Mumbai Medha Patkar was involved in anti-national activities.
Medha Patkar needs no introduction. A social activist who has led the struggle for people affected by the controversial Sardar Sarovar project on the Narmada in Gujarat, she founded the Narmada Bachoao Andolan and National Alliance of People's Movements and is the recipient of numerous awards, inclu…
I see animosity between AAP and BJP supporters. Animosity of the worst kind. I see social media get divided into groups. The most vocal group comprises of the strong supporters of BJP to the extent of behaving like a fanatic. These people resort to name calling and name distortion. Kejriwal is called Khujliwal. Kumar Vishwas is called Kumar Bakwas or badhawas. Shazia Ilmi is called Chilmi (whatever that means) Social activists like Medha Patkar are mocked. AAP supporters are called AAPtards. Even got a message on WhatsApp "Jo lad na saka Khansi (cough) se, Wo kya ladega Kashi se". (Seriously, dude?) Fake documents and accusations are floated on social media. A suggestion that the army presence in civilian areas in Kashmir should be done after a referendum is wrongly presented as a referendum to separate the state of Kashmir. Secular people like myself are called sickulars. National award winning filmmakers are called C class just because they oppose Modi. Physical attacks on AAP leaders are applauded. AAP ...
Another comparison from medha patkar . Look at guj poverty rate . More ppl in guj starving for food . Instead of promoting guj model give them food .
Forget abt parties ..if ppl like `Medha patkar` contests in elections I will be the first to vote . waiting for South Mumbai s reaction after poll . If she looses it proves again that we all indians suck.
Vote only to AAp candidates . If you do not vote to AAp ,you will regret for 25 years for missing the opportunity for the excellent change. Which is possible in this election only . People like Medha Patkar or Rajmohan Gandhi or Yogendra Yadav will never be seen again in politics. Modi is not a threat to any body but we are tired of old wine in new bottle with same corruption and gross rule. We want highly educated professionals from new generation who are not interested in caste and community politics of reservation and favoritism. Today we saw many thousand quintals of wheat is being soaked in dirty water in open gutter when millions of people starve .we want people who can govern properly and who have great concern for the nation as a whole. Enough of Rabdi Lalu,Balu ,Modi, R.S,S. Foolen devi. Uma. Anna ,Kiran ,Modi. Gadakari Mamata ,Lalita,,mulayam baba, Maulana,Sri Sri. Raj thackery ,Amit, ajit, Or Asharam.

A video dedicated to Aam Aadmi Party candidate MEDHA PATKAR- created by AAP volunteer, anchored by leading tv artist SPARSH
IIM-B's Prof Vaidyanathan exposed Muffler in a very well researched article Here is the list of Indians/ NGOs who have been funded by or have proximity to Ford Foundation Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia’s NGO – Kabeer Mallika Sarabhai’s Darpana Yogendra Yadav was funded by ICSSR of Jawaharlal Nehru University, which in turn was funded by Ford Foundation Amartya Sen for its books – Ideas of Justice Teesta Setalvad and Javed’s Sabrang Communication, one who has been fighting against Modi all these years And you would know, most of these guys are part of Aam Aadmi Party or are major supporters of AAP. This poses a very serious question on why is Ford Foundation interested in Indian Politics. Just to do further research on members of Aam Aadmi Party, I tried to find some details on other members like Aruna Roy, Medha Patkar, Prashant Bhushan and Gopal Rai… And this was even a bigger SHOCKER to me… Aruna Roy is the one who had sent a petition to President PRANAB MUKHERJEE for mercy towards Ajm ...
Okay, maybe Narendra Modi's "Gujrat Model of development" is something very extraordinary & spending billions on advertisements is also from the "clean" party funds, but people like Rajnath Singh (ex-Ghaziabad MP), Pawan Bansal (corrupt ex-Railway minister), Arun Jaitley (replacing a working MP like Navjot Sidhu), Harsimran Badal (whose property increased 4 times in last 5 years) to name a few & others like them shouldn't be winning after wasting 5 years & doing minimum work. might be inexperienced but they're against the experienced who've made money for themselves & did nothing for the "Aam Aadmi" - this is why they deserve a chance. People like HS Phoolka, Arvind Kejriwal, Meera Sanyal, Medha Patkar, Jiya Lal, Khalid Pervez deserve a chance.
If NaMo (or MoNa) is so confident of his Tsunami - which can only leave destruction in its trail, why is he so hyper about the AAP? They are trying all tricks to prevent Medha Patkar from contesting. Yesterday one of his stooges, V.K.Saxena, who is the CEO of the Adani's Dholera Port and masquerades as the Chairman of National Council for Civil Liberties, sent an email to the press and to the Election Commission that Medha should be disqualified from contesting as she has not disclosed in her affidavit that she heads a militant organisation NBA, that she takes foreign funds, etc.In fact his case on this issue has been quashed by the Supreme Court with costs to him after an enquiry by the Vajapayee govt gave her a clean chit. He must be sorely disappointed that the Election Commission had a good laugh and junked his mail. We will fight and we will win.

Medha Patkar defending Khap panchayats on CNN-IBN! I can't believe it!
Medha Patkar facing really a hostile crowd on IBNlive programme with Sagarika Ghosh, a pro AAP media channel could not collect a pro AAP crowd,how will AAP win a single seat,I firmly believe Magic of AAP is finished,people are tired with this party.They wanted too much and they did not read the wave,Delhi unrest was assumed as India's unrest.
3 Great Grandsons of Mahatma Gandhi have joined AAP, so has Grandson of Lal Bahadur Shastri, not to mention Medha Patkar.
An appeal to the new generation of voters!! 30% of our Loksabha candidates declared so far have criminal cases. 12% have serious criminal cases. ( ref - ADR India report below) I cringe when my neighbors and colleagues ask me this question, with disbelief, 30% criminals among candidates? As a super power in the making, can India afford to have criminals run the country? This election is different, we are seeing the advent of cleaner candidates and mainstream folks, corporates and social workers such as Nandan Nilakeni, Medha Patkar,Meera Sanyal, and a host of other non-career politicians. For the new generation (well, actually every generation), it is the time to think seriously about criminality in politics. Our appeal to you is to think beyond political alignments and for once, think about the criminal element in candidates as you make your precious choice this time. Do we deserve criminals to represent us? Netamaker will be providing assets and criminal records of candidates on our site by end of ...
AAP fields an interesting mix of candidates. The Aam Aadmi Party has sought to strike a balance by giving tickets to people from diverse fields like media, corporate world, films and academics besides social activists, former defence personnel and retired bureaucrats for the Lok Sabha elections. Former CEO and chairperson of RBS India Meera Sanyal, social activist Medha Patkar, actress Gul Panag, academician Rajmohan Gandhi and journalist Ashutosh are among the 242 candidates announced by the party so far for its debut Lok Sabha elections. "After its success in the Delhi assembly elections, the party has got tremendous response with people from across the country wanting to become members. With this, also came a long list of people wanting to contest on a party ticket," said an AAP leader. While party leader Arvind Kejriwal doesn't mince words when it comes to attacking the media, it is ironic that it has given a sizable number of tickets to journalists. Mukul Tripathi, Ashish Khetan, Jarnail Singh, who h ...
Mumbai: The candidature of social activist Medha Patkar from Mumbai North East Lok Sabha constituency on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) ticket comes as bad news for Congress-NCP which made a clean sweep in the financial capital in 2009. Patkar's name is in the list of 20 candidates announced by AAP for the general elections today. NCP sources said sitting MP Sanjay Patil, who is also the president of the Sharad Pawar-led party's city unit, was facing resentment from inside the party and from Congress. "Congress accused him of sabotaging its candidates in the municipal elections two years ago. NCP corporators and senior leaders are also not in favour of him," a source said. The constituency has a sizable Dalit population, which had helped RPI leader Ramdas Athawale in the past. But now Athawale, recently elected to Rajya Sabha, is with Shiv Sena-BJP alliance. Patkar, who shot to fame with Narmada Bachao Andolan, has some base in the constituency as her National Alliance of Peoples Movement (NAPM) works in the slums ...

we have doctors working in remote inaccessible areas, where we don't even have the basics of civilisation... we have medical students beaten up by goons, and now even police... we have social activists protesting for a lot of issues, there's even organisations which care for dogs & cats... yet now we have a situation where medically students have been brutally assaulted, one has been killed, one is seriously injured, many are injured... and where is justice, where is Satyamev Jayate & Amir Khan, where are the social activists, where are people like Shabana Azmi, Javed Akhtar, Arundhati Roy, Medha Patkar, even man of the moment Kejriwal...
Requesting Rajnath Singh Narendra Modi Yogendra Yadav , Arvind Kejriwal , Manish Sisodia, Medha Patkar you have seen the News Express expose, 11 major opinion poll companies allegedly found red handed. They were taking money from political parties and cooking up the results of the opinion polls. Then News Media buying these, and showing to the voters. Then political parties going on a mass propaganda saying they are the winning party, so people should vote for them. You can regulate banks, because they provide service to the public. you can regulate media because they provide service, you can regulate stock market, cinemas etc etc. But pre-poll opinion polls are just an entertainment service which is playing with the democracy. Please stop the madness of pre poll opinion polls. Instead focus on your policies, and let people decide who they want to vote for. Do your internal surveys if you are curious. Respect people's vote on the election day. Ban pre-poll opinion polls. Supporters of BJP and AAP, most po ...
We need candidates like Medha Patkar to save our country from the CHAI Republic backed by crony capitalists.
Yesterday afternoon 25 odd NCP goons attacked AAP Chakala Office with ink balloons they also burnt Arvind Kejriwal effigy placed in our office, the interesting part was that despite police being present during the violent protest they preferred to stay inactive. To protest against the Himsa of NCP with Ahimsa of AAP our National Executive Member & Lok Sabha Candidate from North West Shri Mayank Gandhi with Volunteers decided to sweep nearby NCP Office. As expected Police detained them en route & took them to MIDC Police Stn At Andheri. Meanwhile a few of volunteers managed to reach & Sweep NCP Office at Juhu Lane. By evening as a mark of protest against detention, thousands of volunteers gathered at Police Stn. The hall mark of the protest was when a few detained Muslim Volunteers offered their daily evening Namaz at Sai Baba Mandir inside the police Stn. AAP Lok Sabha Candidates Medha Patkar & Meera Sanyal also joined the volunteers late night & we collectively refused to leave until our demands are m .. ...
The kindest thing I can say about the economic thoughts of Arvind Kejriwal is that he needs to think some more about his ideas. Citizen Kejriwal announced last week that he was not against capitalism but only against ‘crony capitalism’. This was so astounding a statement from a man who used his 15 minutes in office hounding private companies and flinging charges at major industrialists that I resolved to investigate further. This required careful analysis of the speech he made at the CII meeting in Delhi. The more I analysed, the more I heard the sound of music in my ears. Arvind Kejriwal in concise and clear terms espoused causes this column has espoused ever since I discovered more than 20 years ago that India’s biggest political problems were its economic failures. In this space I have stated ad nauseum that I believe India could still be the richest country in the world if we follow the right economic polices. By ‘right’ I mean right ideologically as well because I think it has been proven t ...
VOH:23/2/2014 BJP to cross more 300 if effective candidates were fielded and even surprise wins will result with best of candidates As VOH followed NAMO'S chai pe chercha and into locations like BENGAL, ODISHA, ANDHRA PRADESH, TAMIL NADU and KERALA with candidates with know face and good track record in these areas may fetch BJP TALLY beyond 300 and all it need is a candidate who can come out in clear about modi vision and follow him blindly and what surprises one and all local or non local immaterial as WHEN IT comes to Lok Sabha all hands up for MODI alone none else and they were seeing a "SWARNA YUGA" under modi like "SRIKRISHNARAYA" period with development, development and development ranging from kanyakumari to Kashmir and all corners of the india.

Dear AAP and AAPtards, "There is more to this nation apart from the corruption.". .AAP's Mumbai Candidate...
Yesterday(22nd February 2014) AAP Andheri Office was attacked by the NCP goons. In protest to the attack, when some 15-20 AAPians under the leadership of Mayank Gandhi decided to sweep the fronts of the NCP office, the police instead of arresting the perpetrators detained Mayank Gandhi and his team at MIDC Police Station. The Police suggested that AAP files a FIR instead of carrying on the protest. As it was not the arrest of the young misguided souls that really mattered but a strong condemn of the violence by means of non-violent ways, it was decided not to insist on any arrest etc ; instead leave it to the State to follow the due process of law. Nevertheless the wrongful act had to be condemned. Mayank Gandhi therefore declared that no matter what he shall not go home without (symbolic) cleaning of dirt and garbage in front of the NCP by the AAP Broom. There ofcourse is no law that prohibits cleaning public roads and paths. The Police however would not allow the AAPians to let go for the purpose of cle ...
would prefer Congress to a party filled with full-time protesters like Medha Patkar

and u see Medha Patkar AAP candidate from Mumbai NE has a understanding with Sharad Pawar. Will not speak against him.
I dont know how many people identify Medha Patkar but my school teacher used to mention a lot about her, back in 90s
Just to add a drop into the vast knowledge pool of smart, secular, futuristic, transparent Aam Aadmis specially from Maharashtra,( because delhians are already infected), Medha Patkar was against death sentence of Kasab and Kejriwal was against death sentence for Afzal Guru, both had signed Petitions to save them.
Mumbai North east, Medha patkar doing very good work in slums and NCP's Sanjay Dina patil has contributed a lot to development here.
If you are wise then can u please justify Prashant Bhushan and Medha Patkar views on terrorist?
If Medha patkar manages to divide sanjay DinaPatil's votes,BJP may get 1 seat in Mumbai north east,provided Poonam Mahajan is not contender
AAP ki Medha Patkar uses funds from abroad to stall development projects in India. This is what AAP brings 2 the table
Where was your intellectual when Prashant Bhushan and Medha Patkar were pleading human rights for terrorist.
Modi has the right to take up the cause of the Bangladeshi Hindus in the same Medha Patkar did in Kasab case.
Giving LS tickets to activists like Medha Patkar is wants to play safe?
declared the defendant for 'Ajmar Ali Kasab' (Medha Patkar) as a 'Lok Sabha' candidate from 'North East Mumbai' , so whenever another blasts takes place the terrorist can have a minister to let them scoot free.They say that they have fielded the sympathiser of 'Dawood Ibrahim' (Anjali Damaniya) against 'Nitin Gadkari''s constituency (get your facts clear that this seat has a leader representing it at the Lok-Sabha). In 'AAP''s website they say that 'Milind Deora' is from though the fact is he is from 'Congress'. I just want to say "khujliwal" don't make people
AAP's new member Rajgopal Gandhi supports pakistan ISI agenda. AAP's Medha Patkar requested not to hang Kasab. AAP's alok protested against hanging of Afzal guru AAP's Yogendra Yadav one of those who wrote letter to america not to give passport to namo AAP's Sanjay Singh wants to give Indian citizenship to illegal bangladeshis. AAP's Prashant Bhushan wants to gift kashmir to pakistan. Wow!!! AAP is so innocent.
Mahatma Gandhi: First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win! This fight against rampant corruption, genocide and caste politics and thus worse governance for 66 years (which is bjp and congress now call governance) is a fight for the billion of Indians led by Arvind. Indian people and Arvind is on the verge of win and that would be the next LS election. The first list of 20 AAP LS candidates include iconic Indian activist like Medha Patkar. As long as all the AAP candidates are known and their manifesto offering life betterment facilities for people is out all the poll surveys are meaningless and the brahmin janata party and congress would get to know about it after LS. B for Bharat = B for "Bapu" (father) where brahmnis are just a part of the population that would get necessary respect; but ofcourse not B for Bharat = B for Brahmin that killed the greatest and strong leader Mahatma Gandhi (he was in a prayer and he gave India the identity in the world) where people fr ...
Kejriwal shoukd clarrify what is his relation with medha patkar & Arundhati Roy
I think Sundays are getting better by the day..

Long back there used to be a concept on Zee Cinema... Sunday Dhamaal..Back to back superhit movies.. Waisa hi lag raha hai aaj ;-)
Can Mumbaikars Forgive these people who wanted Kasab Alive ?? List of some people who signed mercy petition for Ajmal Kasab 1) Mallika Sarabhai 2) Medha Patkar 3) Prashanth Bhushan 4) Shabnam Hashmi 5) Teestha setalvad 6) Aruna Roy
Well, I don't know why they behave like this, but it's the time to ask the devotees some questions about their brand ambassador of honesty Arvind Kejriwal. I request them to ask these facts to Mr. Kejriwal and get the answers if they ever get. 1. Who gave the Bungalow in Connaught Place for Rs 1/month as rent to Aam Aadmi Party? Why his/her name hasn't been disclosed? 2. Binayak Sen, a member of Planning Commission, drafts policies of Aam Aadmi Party. Then, what is the connection between AAP and Congress? 3. AK says, he served 5 years as an honest IRS officers, but no transfers happened ever. Whereas, in the same system people like Ashok Khemka gets transferred twice a year for his honesty. Why? 4. Admiral Ramdas, who is a part of AAP's internal Lokpal, was against Nuclear Tests held in Pokharan. He even vowed to fast in front of 7 RCR against the tests. In a reaction to this, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam had said, "Ramdas can sit on a fast in Islamabad because Pakistan was planning to conduct nuclear tests." (Ref ...
Most people in India have a positive impression about Medha Patkar. Is she not the secular activist who takes on big business, fights for preserving India’s greenery and defends the poor and downtrodden?
So, dear Medha Patkar ji, is it perfectly alright to use foreign funds to stall Indian project??
Sardar sarovar bandh has changed life of residents in gujarat , This ambitious project was planned in the early 90's but was opposed without any valid reasons, the delay in the construction of dam resulted in increment of 10 times in the initial cost of projrcts,the opposition agitation was funded by some sources outside INdia and one of the main opposor is contesting election from AAP party,was medha patkar correct to oppose any project of national intrest ? .kindly give your valuable comments on this question.
medha patkar says lavassa agitation is on ! Doesn't seem like! wad bout dvlmpnt ,economic, ntnl security issues for country?
Candid & honest Medha Patkar on Star Majha. Gr8t!
UPDATE: NCP uses Police Force to crush Civil Liberties in Maharashtra AAP volunteers are being beaten up and arrested across the state – for the heinous crime of sweeping the streets. Earlier in the day NCP goons attacked the AAP office and AAP retaliated with an offer to sweep their offices to help clean the cobwebs of corruption. Mayank Gandhi was detained at 4pm the moment he set out for the NCP office along with 100 karyakartas. He is still under this illegal detention and another 500 volunteers have joined him. Medha Patkar has also joined the detainees. Anjali Damania led Nagpur volunteers to sweep the streets in front of the NCP office and the NCP goons there attacked Anjali and our team with the lathis of their flags. And the police arrested the sweepers, obviously not the attackers! Exactly the same happened in Thane where AAP karyakartas were attacked by the NCP goons while sweeping the streets and then the police came and arrested our karyakartas. Press statement from AAP.
Oh! The Mess iahs of good governance .Just the thought of Medha Patkar is so scary. Nightmare unleashed

AAP - AN INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY AGAINST INDIA.. It is not Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which is being portrayed as the party of common man but actually, it’s an international conspiracy hatched by anti-Indian forces within and outside the country. People like Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan, Anand Kumar, Yogendra Yadav, Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Shazia Ilmi, Gopal Rai and Dilip Pandey are Indians but only in name. Who is not aware of their pro-Maoists and pro-radical Islamist credentials? Who is not aware of Medha Patkar credentials and those who constituted the Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) and the essentially subversive and anti-system National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM) of which Patkar is an integral and crucial part? Similarly, Kamal A Mitra Chenoy, had been exposed by the writer and rendered clueless in the Jawaharlal Nehru University in a well-attended international seminar more than a decade ago. Others of his ilk, who are in the process of openly making com ...
Let the media not support. Delhi was won by AAP despite these media and India will also be won despite the media. People are by the side of truth. The very fact that Medha Patkar, Lal Bahadhur Sastri's grandson and Mahatma Gandhi's grandson have joined AAP is proof enough for the credibility of AAP. People will shun these media and sonner or later these media will have to either shut down or find some other business like tea shop or barbour shop.
Excellent work. Next arrest Medha Patkar, I suspect she's involved in human trafficking.

This is a fact which can be verified from what the often repeated statements of Prashant Bhushan and others on Indian culture, civilisation, Kashmir, Army, Maoist-affected areas, nuclear energy plants, anti-terror laws and their frequent hobnobbing with radical Islamists, Maoists and other similar forces which consider the majority community their enemy and dismiss India as an ‘unnatural formation’ (or a formation of disparate regions and mutually exclusive social groups and communities). Indeed, Kejriwal and his associates are on the same side. Medha Patkar formally joined the AAP and assured the NAPM’s full support to Kejriwal on January 13, 2014 with the statement “We know the philosophy and views of Kejriwal” and hence, her plunge with the AAP. It was not a coincidence that Kamal A Mitra Chenoy, who I have personally known for more than two decades and whose biases for Kashmiri separatists, Maoists and similar other anti-national elements are apparent, bemoaned that he wanted the Left leader ...
Conngress, Its Allies, Anti India & Anti Hindu Lobbyists have Portrayed 2002 Gujarat Riots as the Worst Riots in the History of the World.

Meera Sanyal worked at a bank financing Enron's India Project at a time Medha Patkar campaigned against Enron
is a mess of Irony & Contradictions. Hence it messed-up Delhi. Imagine an economy by Meera Sanyal & Medha Patkar
In 1994, firebrand social activist Medha Patkar launched a massive campaign against US power giant "Enron" in India. Meera Sanyal, was working with a bank that was financing Enron's India project. Now, both have come on same platform and are contesting from Mumbai seats on AAP tickets. the AAP will face ideological challenges in the days to come? One is anti development while other is pro market.
Yesterday Aam Aadmi Party kicked off its Lok Sabha election campaign in Maharashtra which was attended by Medha Patkar, Anjali Damania, Vijay Pandhare, Meera H Sanyal, Mayank Gandhi, Yogendra Yadav and our very enthusiastic Aam Aadmi Party Mumbai team.

Event was attended by Yogendra Yadav (National Executive Member), Mayank Gandhi (National Executive Member, AAP Candidate from Norrth West Mumbai), Anjali Damania (Convener AAP Maharashtra, Candidate from Nagpur), Vijay Pandhare (Convener of AAP pune) , Medha Patkar (Candidate from Mumbai North East), Meera Sanyal (Candidate from South Mumbai) and committe members of Mumbai and Maharashtra. Event was a huge suuccess.
Adversaries on Enron, banker Meera Sanyal and activist Medha Patkar are now both AAP candidates in Mumbai.
19th Feb 2014 AAP Mumbai held a Rally and Jansabha ''Elaan e Jung - Chunaav 2014''. The Jansabha was addressed by senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav and party's poll candidates Mayank Gandhi , Anjali Damania , Medha Patkar , Meera Sanyal and Maruti Bhapkar. Thousands of supporters came in the rally and throng the Jansabha ground.
It was such a great experience to be a part of the AAP Aelan-e-Jung in Mumbai with Medha Patkar, Yogendra Yadav, Anjali Damania, Meera Sanyal and other leaders of the common man. Kisi ne Chaai tak nahi puchhi phir bhi hazaaro.n log aaye apne kharche se, jabki baaki parties chaai paani nashta khaana aur paisa bhi dete hai. Kisliye? Apne Bhavishya ke liye. Have heard YY speak in a TV programme but heard him and Medha Tai live for the first time and realised why they are such popular leaders for the displaced and downtrodden. If you compare this rally with any Namoji rally, it was "Paani Kam Chaai" but YY said it was bigger than any election rally of AAP in Delhi before Assembly elections. Mayank Gandhi spoke about Slum lords, Police and BMC nexus. Meera Sanyal came from Churchgate to Andheri by local train along with her supporters and alighted at all stations to spread the message of AAP.
The Beohar House:- A landmark in North Civil Lines area of Jabalpur, this elegant and prestigious manor.. Constructed soon after completion of the building which now houses the High Court of MP. This private manor has had the singular honour of hosting several visiting luminaries including Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vinoba Bhave, Osho, Bacha Khan, Mirabehn, Jamnalal Bajaj, Maithili Sharan Gupt, Shankar Dayal Sharma, Kaka Kalelkar, Thakkar Bapa, Makhanlal Chaturvedi, Somnath Hore, Arunachal Perumal, Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, Medha Patkar, Nirmal Verma, Rehman, etc. History books of the early 1820-1830s refer to the vast expanse/estate of this manor as Jamnera and subsequently Beohar-Grove. It was later converted to Civil Lines by the British. When the railway line was laid, it bisected the area into North and South, and this area became Civil Lines (North). This entire area is now popularly referred-to as Beohar-Bagh, or Garden of the Beohars'. High Court of Madhya Pradesh is situat ...
AAP may hit Congress hardest in Mumbai Monday, February 17, 2014 - 06:00 IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA AAP’s list of 20 Lok Sabha candidates announced on Sunday shows a mix of professionals from various fields, clearly a middle class aspirational pantheon. To cut through identity politics, to give the middle class a stake in electoral politics, to present a list on ‘anti-political’ candidates, to announce that there is a talented hard-working class that wants to have a share in the destiny of the country, is the intention. For the Mumbai seats, the party has laid out an impressive mix of candidates ranging from Left to Right — activist Medha Patkar from Mumbai North East, RTI activist Mayank Gandhi from Mumbai North West, and high-profile banker Meera Sanyal who fits into the profile of a typical South Mumbai resident taking on Milind Deora. In Nagpur, BJP’s former president Nitin Gadkari will have to face activist Anjali Damania apart from Congress’ Vilas Muttemwar who won last time. What ...

JNU PROFESSOR JOINED AAP A FORMER CPI MEMBER NEW DELHI: JNU professor Kamal Mitra Chenoy, who joined the Aam Aadmi Party after a 40-year association with the CPI, lashed out at the Left party saying they were willing to overlook people's deaths for political gains. "I had given a report to the national council on the Muzaffarnagar riots that was critical of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. But I was told that we can't manage without Mulayam in UP. What is important then? Whether people die, children die or political gains," Chenoy said when asked if the Left was disconnected with the people. Chenoy said the Left was behind the times and politics had become a game of money. "I have worked with Medha Patkar, worked on human rights issues in Manipur and also worked in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. Politics has been made a game of money. We will fight for the common man," Chenoy said, adding many other professors and students from JNU may join the party. When asked if he would fight elections, Chenoy ...
There were two groups in Anna movement, In one there were Anna, Kiran Bedi, Santosh Hegde, V K Singh and in another group there were Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Prashant Bhushan, Medha Patkar etc. anarchists. From starting these anarchists wanted to destabilize the center govt. but the former group was against it. It is our responsibility to stop these people to bring India on way of become Libiya, Siriya. Anarchy can't be a substitute for governance.

1) Now that they are against Globalisation - Not a student of Economics to understand 91 economic reforms led my PVN and MMS, but i know it bailed us out from possible Bankruptcy and paved way for the generation of lakhs of jobs. To cite benefits of those reforms here is the Wiki extract The impact of these reforms may be gauged from the fact that total foreign investment (including foreign direct investment, portfolio investment, and investment raised on international capital markets) in India grew from a minuscule US$132 million in 1991–92 to $5.3 billion in 1995–96. . By opposing to those economic reforms are they not killing Private sector ? 2) Kind of ppl flocking includes "Jholawala" activists like Medha Patkar, and that Uday Kumar. Medha Patkar and her bunch of activists stalled Sardar Sarovar Dam for nearly 15+ yrs, later Supreme court gave go ahead to dam. Due to these activists, benefits that millions would have enjoyed was delayed by 15+ yrs. We want water, electricity, irrigation but . ...
Just see who's endorsing Modi: Kiran Bedi, Lata Mangeshkar, Narayan Murthy, Ratan Tata AND what about AAP? Medha Patkar, Mallika Sarabhai ,Aruna Roy, and Communists,Naxalies.
EXCELLENT ARTICLE - A SINISTER CONSPIRACY AAP is a gang of Maoists, anti-nationals - By Hari Om And, just look at the credentials of persons who recently joined or are in the process of joining the AAP and you would find that each one of them describes nationalism as a culture of violence and negation of the right to free speech. They include the ultra-liberal and highly biased Ashutosh (who left his job at IBN7 on January 9), Mallika Sarabhai, Medha Patkar – all ardent supporters of Prashant Bhushan and such perverted persons in the AAP like Arvind Kejriwal, Anand Kumar, Yogendra Yadav, Sanjay Singh, Gopal Rai, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwash, Dilip Pandey, Sazia Ilmi and so on. I have no doubt whatsoever that those who voted for the AAP in the recently-held Assembly elections in Delhi would bemoan their decision sooner than later. Indeed, it is sad that the otherwise politically mature Delhi electorate failed to see through the dangerous game plan of the Congress and the AAP and helped them form an ant ...

"Top TV editor Ashutosh will join us in few days along with social activist Medha Patkar. Anyone from the country can become an AAP member", says Arvind Kejriwal while addressing a news conference today after AAP began its national membership drive.
"The credit goes to Kejriwal and his team to provide a platform for strongly addressing people's issues," : Medha Patkar
Social activist Medha Patkar on Thursday said she was yet to take a decision on joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
Ashutosh resigns as managing editor of Hindi channel; Medha Patkar yet to decide.
Time to make strong political intervention in talks with AAP: Medha Patkar
Medha Patkar is positively considering the offer from AAP. If she decides to join AAP, she should *** Rajapur Lok Sabha constituency from the Congress-The Ranes.
After TV journalist Ashutosh, one of the best known faces on Indian TV, formally announced on Thursday that he has quit his job and decided to join hands with Arvind Kejriwal, social activist Medha Patkar hinted at the possibility of joining the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
Medha Patkar, Ashutosh and some more planning to join AAP. Mallika Sarabhai has gone there yesterday. Next may be Shabana Azami, Javed Akhtar, Tiesta Sttlewad. A common tjread is , they are all Hindu baiters and hate Narendra Modi beyond their capacity. Fools don't realise "Haathi chalata apani chaal ."
Ashutosh is the first prominent journalist to join the queue of professionals knocking at AAP's door after the year-old party's dazzling debut in the Delhi assembly election. Social activist Medha Patkar has also been approached by the party but she is yet to announce any decision. Ms Patkar became an influential voice in the tribal and rural belt of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat with her campaign for the rights of people displaced by the Sardar Sarovar dam project. On Wednesday, dancer-activist Mallika Sarabhai announced that she is joining the AAP. Banker Meera Sanyal, Captain Gopinath who created Air Deccan, Infosys board member V Balakrishnan and singer Remo Fernandez are other big names to join the new party. Riding on a massive wave against endemic corruption, Mr Kejriwal's party is all set to launch its campaign for the Lok Sabha polls due by May. From tomorrow to January 26, it will conduct a national membership drive called 'Main Bhi Aam Aadmi.'
Last heard, Aam Aadmi Party is inviting CPI ML Naxal top boss Ganpathy to join the party. That make the party of anti-nationals, with Medha Patkar, Mallika Sarabhai, complete.
Managing editor of the news channel IBN 7, Ashutosh today announced his resignation from the channel. It is expected that he will soon announce his allegiance with AAP. Apart from the prominent journalist, well known activist Medha Patkar is also expected to join the Aam Aadmi Party soon. Patkar has been associated with various campaigns, chief among them the Narmada Bachao Andolan. She also joined Anna Hazare during his protests at Jantar Mantar.
ANOTHER SHOCKING NEWS: Member of the National Election Committee of AAP & CONGRESS Advisory Yogendra Yadav had met Ms. Medha Patkar on Wednesday and requested her to join the party.And yes SHE ACCEPTED his Request.What the *** is going on.Medha Patkar...cant beleive it :O
Morning Bliss.. (1) Ashutsosh of IBN 7 quits his job..set to join AAP (2) Medha Patkar can also join AAP (3)Survey of TOI - In 8 metropolitan cities..44% says they will vote for AAP which is more than BJP/Cong..31% in Ahmedabad say they will vote for AAP in Lok Sabha..
One of my favourite IBN7 Editor Ashutosh to join AAP soon. Medha Patkar may also come back ...Famous dancer and Daughter of scientist Dr. Vikram Sarabhai already joined AAP. Don't you think we always needed such people in parliament and not lalu ..rajneeti prasad ..ram bilas paswan and the list is big. Kiran Bedi and V.K. Singh should also consider coming back. It's better to get into system and clean it rather than shouting from outside and believing things will change on their own by our corrupt politicians..
An Indian Social activist Medha Patkar may join AAP [news is yet to confirm]
AAP requested Medha Patkar to Join , Yogendra Yadav met yesterday to her at delhi . As per AAP she is responded positively .
medha patkar on uttarakhand floods special INTERVIEW by IBN Lokmat
Arvind Kejriwal is extremely uncomfortable to work with people who are a little bit well known or a little bit well reputed than himself. And here lies the minefield for AAP. In Anna movement, who were the people who were more reputed/well known than Kejriwal? Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi, Swami Agnivesh, Anupam Kher, Baba Ramdev, Medha Patkar, Santosh Hegde.Where these people are today? All are removed by Kejriwal except Santosh Hegde, who is almost isolated. Who are promoted? 26 year Rakhi Birla, 33 year old Somnath Bharti, who can never go above Kejriwal. This "lack of broadness/chicken heart" will hamper AAP as a party. Anybody who would try to grow more than Kejriwal, he will be curtailed down by the "followers" (smaller people, who know that they can never go beyond Kejriwal and owe their reputation to Kejriwal and thus sycophants of Kejriwal, like Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas). If you see the history of Congress or even BJP, you would find broadminded leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru (who had no problems ...
yeah, these guys will be the same . BTW don't miss reference to Medha Patkar, Aruna Roy :)
Ant and Grosshopper - Indian Version of story - too good and fact The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs dances plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. NDTV, BBC, CNN , Asianet show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house. Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter . Mayawati states this as 'injustice' done on Minorities. Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indi ...
Pls ask Medha Patkar how many trees will have to be cut for 25 lakh letters. She is not going on andolan due to this wastage?
Mumbai rally against superstitions and communalism Ashok Dhawale, State Secretary CPIM Maharashtra On December 2, 2013 an impressive rally of several thousand people marched in Mumbai around three main demands. These were: Immediate enactment of the law against black magic and superstition in the ensuing session of the state assembly at Nagpur beginning December 9; Immediate arrest of the killers of Dr Narendra Dabholkar and of the diabolical forces behind this murder; and stringent action against communal and obscurantist forces. The Mumbai rally: A view The rally was organised jointly by the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmulan Samiti (MANS), along with other secular and progressive parties and organisations. Prominent among them was the CPI(M) which, underlining the political importance of this rally, had consciously mobilised several thousand people from Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, Raigad and Pune districts. The presence of CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat in this rally showed the importance attached b ...
Is it height of stupidity or arrogance? Day by day Delhi politics is taking different turns and new things are coming out. In the 2013 assembly elections Delhi voter has given a fractured verdict even though we can say it is an anti congress mandate. But voter has not given clear majority to either BJP or newly born Aam Admi Party. But the votes shared by AAP and no of seats it has won stunned all the political pundits. It is a spectacular victory off Aam Admi Party of just few months old. Many pundits, general public and even its opponents praised its performance. If we go back to the series of events behind the birth of the AAP, it is the movement started by yoga guru Swamy Ramdev Baba; who sphere headed the anti corruption agitation with a call to Bring back Black money stashed away from corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and business men. With a popular call of brining money deposited by these people in Switzerland banks. Baba Ramdev toured across the country as part of his yoga camps where thousan ...

FRIENDS I WOULD LIKE SHARE SOME THOUGHTS ON ARAVIND KEJRIWAL. He was little known not even as great a celebrity as Medha patkar, Kiran Bedi, Bhushans. Because of Anna movement he is known to all of us. He betrayed Anna and went against his wish to reap the benefit of ANNAs anti corruption movement for his political ambitions. He claims Honesty as his property which will be proved only after the taste of power. Future no body can predict. In the same breath see what Nehru did. He was not the first nominee for pm, it was sardar patel. He arm twisted Gandhiji and became pm. Gandhiji never wanted that a political party be formed as continuation of Congress which was heading the freedom movement. He advised that Congress be dissolved after Independence. Nehru betrayed and reaped the benefit of freedom struggle's popularity of Congress. Congress's first choice for PM was Sardar Patel and Gandhiji's choice was Rajaji. All Nehrus followers were fresh and honest. Look what happened to Congress. All are corrupt a . ...

Harsh Mander, Medha Patkar, Arundhati Roy, Agnivesh, Aruna Roy, Teesta Satalvad, Ramachandra Guha are only a few activists of this very strong Anti-National Lobby that has been carved by western agencies. These activists do not believe in Nationalism or the concept of India as a nation state. Their Idea is that India is still a conglomeration of different nationalities, who are kept suppressed by the brutal state power,and that it is their duty to help the different nationalities in India to achieve their goal of independence. 3/n

What is the Religion of Bharat? - Islam or Christianity? No. Can it be anything other than Hindu (Sanatan Hindu Dharm)? If the culture of America is Christian and that of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan is Islam, the culture of India is Hindu. Any one trying to hide this Hindu identity is dishonest. Even hard core anti-Hindus like Brinda Karat, Medha Patkar, Teesta Setalvad, Mallika Sarabai, Arundathi Roy, Barkha Dutt, Ambika Soni, and many others, are testifying to this, showing up in saree with a big Bindi on their foreheads. They can hate Hindu religion but not Hindu culture. If India is the body, Hindutva is its soul. The UPA is killing this soul. Just think - what happens when the soul leaves the body. Do you want this to happen to our beloved Motherland? Do we Hindus have one country to call it ours, although we are 100 crores? When India was partitioned in 1947, with the birth of a Muslim Pakistan, India should have been declared a Hindu Nation. But we opted for ‘secularism’. And today Hindus are Sec ...

Reward and punishment Subversion of Bureaucracy and Modiphobia: MUST READ.. The Modi Government in Gujarat has ensured the support and collaboration of bureaucrats and police personnel by the effective employment of carrot and stick policy; by penalizing those who defied illegal orders and adhered to the Indian Constitution and rewarding the others who collaborated in illegal activities, mass crimes, destruction of evidence and overall subversion of the criminal justice system. The active collaborators were rewarded by even post retirement assignments. A few illustrations are: Ø G. Subharao (IAS, 1965): The then chief secretary (2002) was given a three-month extension in his post and also appointed chairman of the Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission with a fixed tenure for six years from May 2003. Occupying the senior-most position within the state bureaucracy in 2002, Subbarao coerced officials to support the unlawful policies of the Modi government and even instructed officers to „eliminate‟ ...

Mr Ansari said, “The state government has no problem when Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi visited the area but it is resorting to such action against us when our effort is to bring peace in the trouble-torn areas.” The JD(U) leader, who is a Rajya Sabha MP, said he wanted to visit the family members of the journalist killed in the clashes and also meet a group of people associated with social activist Medha Patkar, who was sitting on a dharna.

Dr.Narendra Dabholkar, a well known rationalist and anti-superstition activist from Maharashtra was shot dead in Pune on 20th August 2013. He was the Founder of the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (Committee for Eradication of Superstition in Maharashtra). The Humanist community is shocked at this mindless violence. Narendra Dabholkar, a doctor by profession had dedicated his life to the cause of rationalism and humanism. He spearheaded several campaigns against superstitions and was involved in caste annihilation programmes. Narendra Dabholkar was campaigning to get an anti-superstition bill passed by the Maharashtra Government. A day after his death the Maharashtra state government cleared an Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Ordinance. The law seeks to make it punishable for self-styled godmen to prey on people by offering rituals, charms, magical cures and propagating black magic. He had made powerful enemies and had faced protests against his work. Narendra Dabholkar also campaigned agains ...
We might remember that around six years back a massive agitation erupted in Singur area of West Bengal where the TATA’s had planned to construct a mega car manufacturing factory. The Singur agitation which was spearheaded by Mamata Banerjee (present CM of West Bengal) gained lot of media attention when the Tata Motor company started constructing the factory in the area to manufacture the TATA Nano car. The then West Bengal ‘s leftist Government facilitated the land acquisition under Land Acquisition Act of 1894 to undertake the acquisition of around 997 acres of farm land (more than 9000 kanals approximately) This move was opposed tooth and nail by the thousands of local villagers , activists and opposition political parties as well. Due to immense public pressure the TATA Motors finally decided to move out of Singur in October 2008 . Similar agitations have been taking place in various parts of India like Narmadha Bachaaw Andholan spearheaded by Medha Patkar and many more anti land acquisition agitat ...

Cycle Satyagraha is catching up! Medha Patkar writes to CM to lift the ban on Cycling!
Kabir Kala Manch (KKM), a Pune-based cultural troupe first came together in response to the communal carnage in Gujarat. The group went on to make its voice heard on the rights of slum-dwellers and workers; on sustainable development; and most of all, the need to eliminate, once and for all, casteist practices in our society. KKM has performed for and with working class movements as well as movements led by Medha Patkar, Bhai Vaidya and others. In 2011, the state of Maharashtra began to brand these cultural activists as “Naxalites”. With this excuse, the KKM and its activities have been targeted time and again. Members of KKM were arrested in May, 2011 under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). They got bail recently, but almost immediately after, Sheetal Sathe and Sachin Mali were arrested on April 2, 2013 after the two staged a “satyagraha” outside the Vidhan Bhavan (Maharashtra State Legislature) protesting the police’s use of UAPA to accuse them of being Maoists and absconders.

Attack on Dalits during Gujarat Riots - Ignored by Media = There are people who claim to be 'Champions of Dalits', many of whom are full of hatred for Hindus and Hindu religion. Some people try to raise slogans like "Dalit-Muslim bhai bhai" trying to bring Dalits and Muslims together against the Hindu society, like Dr Udit Raj, formerly known as Ram Raj. Udit Raj is a man burning with hatred for Hinduism, which he left and adopted Buddhism. In 1995, BSP leader Mayawati became Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, and hurled abuses at Lord Ram, fabricated cases against upper caste people under the SC/ST atrocities prevention Act. Many people, from politicians like Sonia Gandhi, Ramvilas Paswan, Mayawati, Communists to social activists like Arundhati Roy, Medha Patkar etc claim to be fighting for the cause of Dalits, the oppressed classes and other weaken sections. Some of these people also falsely launch a campaign against Hindu organisations like RSS, VHP etc accusing them of being organisations of 'upper caste H ...

Aamir Khan's journey from QSQT till today Aamir is possibly one of the very few child actors who have become successful stars.

India is not for sale : Medha Patkar on Budget 2013
Medha Patkar's comments on the Union Budget 2013-2014 India is not for sale : Foreign Investments Can't be the Bedrock of Indian Economy Naam Common Man Kaa, Kaam Corporates Kaa : Medha Patkar New Delhi, January 28 : In his budget speech, lasting for 2 hours, Mr. Chidambaram, the finance minister, with undoubted eloquence talked much about the poverty to equity, churned out thoughts and principles of taxing the rich, empowering women and youth, enabling the children, including the poor. However, if one looks at his principles and promises on one hand and the plans, projects and allocations on the other, one finds a very limited redressal of grievances and no fulfillment of dreams of the toiling sections of India. As expected, Finance Minister’s presentation of budget revolved much around the womenfolk, the question of violence, exclusion and security yet where are new plans to use the contributions of human resource, creativity, perseverance and hard work and the productivity with skills of Women? It is ...
Following are some of the key highlights of the Union Budget 2013-14 presented by Finance Minister P Chidambaram in Parliament on Thursday: *No change in income tax slabs *Relief of Rs 2,000 for tax payers in tax bracket of Rs. 2-5 lakh *10% surcharge on persons with taxable income of over Rs. 1 crore *Tobacco products, SUVs and mobile phones to cost more *Income limit under Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme raised to 12 lakh from Rs 10 lakh *First home loan of up to Rs 25 lakh to get extra interest deduction of up to Rs 1 lakh *Duty free limit of gold import increased to Rs. 50,000 for male passengers and Rs 1 lakh for female passengers *India’s first women’s bank to be set up by October * Concessional six per cent interest on loans to weavers * Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana benefit extended to rickshaw pullers, auto and taxi drivers, among others * ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ of Rs 1,000 crore to empower women and provide safety in the wake of Delhi gang-rape incident *Fiscal deficit for 2013-14 pegged at ...

Women don’t make good politicians. Fact: Meet our President, Delhi Chief Minister, leader of the ruling party….need we say more. Women take longer to dress than men. Fact: But the results are worthwhile. With Women's day around the corner, it is time to bust some quirky, some serious and some not so serious myths about women. Go ahead be the myth-buster and tell us what you think. Time to clear the air.

JAI RASHTRA JAI MAHARASHTRA!! Though i do not belong to Maharashtra.. But i am always impressed by them.. i am amazed how people of one particular region let me say erstwhile Bombay Presidency have the power to resonate with whole of India.. where as other regions/ states are unable to do so... Gokhle, Tilak's Ganesh Puja, Gandhi, Phule and Ambedkar, RSS, Shiva Sena, Medha Patkar or Anna Hazare or Narendra Modi.. One may agree or disagree with the movements... But all had/ have the power to shook/ shake India.. Other states look dwarf in front of it.. And the best part is all movements were non conformist with the State... Now my question.. is it in the cultural strain that one region has more capability to start a movement which resonates with whole of country?.. Which others dont have..and I think.. Yes

I thought there was a global freedom for Art and Cinema to portray truth and emotions. Unfortunately, it may be amplified so as to not hurt the sentiments of the society. I am quite sure has immense respect for our society and dignified enough to make a film which doesn't affect our peace and harmony in any way. Banning shows the fragility and the shameful influence of caste and religion on our system.

MONDAY, 26 JULY 2010 Medha Patkar decries police firing in Sompeta National Alliance of People's Movements national convener Medha Patkar has alleged that the nexus between politicians and corporate circles is the root cause for the killing of two innocent persons in Sompeta on July 14. The social activist, who addressed a public meeting in Sompeta on Saturday, condemned the police firing to suppress people's movement against the move to establish a thermal power project by the Nagarjuna Construction Company. “The agitators exposed that the officials had submitted false reports claiming that the lands given for the project were barren and they did not come under wetland category. But, it was successfully proved that those were wetlands. That is why the NEAA cancelled the Environment Clearance,” Ms. Medha Patkar said. She asked the people to continue their agitation since the NCC would try again to begin the project works with the support of the government. “The government should take back lands imme ...

In continuation to my previous posts "Girls please maintain Modesty". I am writing this article on women. I really adore few women in our nation, and I am proud that I am also a part of this nation where such great women live in. These women are not ordinary citizens; they are much more qualified than us in their respective field. An IAS officer, a famous Social Activist, a renowned actress in Indian Cinema Industry, but these three women had sacrificed all their prosperity, luxuriance to serve the poorest of the poor; their outer appearance might be as simple as common man, but these women had contributed a lot in improving the living conditions of people. The First pic is Aruna Roy who is a social and political activist. She worked in the Indian Administrative Service from 1968 to 1975. She resigned in order to devote her time to social work and social reform. She is one of the founders of the movement for Right to Information Act in India.
