You all must have read about the ongoing demolitions in the various cities of Jharkhand from April onwards on account of the High Court order. Jharkhand Government has done done nothing to come to relief of the lakhs of people. Overall nearly 5,00,000 people are slated to be evicted or affected by these evictions in coming times. In this heat many of the people are forced to live out on the street. An attempt at challenging the verdict in Supreme Court has also failed and was referred back to High Court.
To protest the inaction by Jharkhand State Government and its complicity in carrying out the evictions in name of removing encroachment is highly condemnable.
To protest the inaction and lack of any relief to the already evicted people we propose to do a demonstration infront of the JHAKRKHAND BHAWAN on May 19th, Thursday, at 10:30 am. The address is :
Jharkhand Bhawan, Opposite Indian Airlines Colony, near PVR Priya, Kushmpur Pahari, Vasant Vihar, New Delhi-110057
Please do join and spread the word around.
NAPM, SUCI Delhi, National Hawker Federation, AISA, AICCTU, DSG, INSAF, Jan Sangharsh Vahini, Shahri Mahila Kamgar Union, Rashtriya Gharelu Kamgar Union and others.
