Ghar Jamin Hakka Chetavani Satyagrah
TO continue on GANDHI JAYANTI
Press Briefing at 1.00pm
This is to inform you that more than 3,000 poor, women and men from various slums from Mumbai who have been fighting for the right to housing with land and basic services have today occupied acres of land in Mandala, Mankhurd, Mumbai.
The struggle is to assert that pro-builders policy and scheme like SRA needs to be set aside and Rajiv Awas Yojana should be implemented with communities’ that is through public-public partnership. Mandala’s Land has to be reserved for Rajiv Awas Yojana, for which full plan was submitted three years ago. People are determined and warn that they will not permit the state government to divert this land for any other purpose.
This struggle is also to condemn non-fulfilment of promises made by the CM and CS during the 9 days fast in May 2011. It is to declare People’s Commission on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi i.e. tomorrow.
