This is to reconfirm the NAPM Convener’s meeting in Chattisgarh as discussed earlier. The plan is to reach Raipur on 4th Jan and start our meeting by evening to be continued till 5th evening. On 5th evening we will travel towards Dantewada and express our solidarity with Himanshu Ji who is on fast from December 26th. We stay in Dantewada on 6-7th and also try and visit near by villages from where people were to come for the proposed public hearing. Since, now the public hearing is not going to happen we should try and each out to them. Some of us do plan to leave Dantewada on 7th evening but please do try and stay on, if you can.
