INDIA AGAINST CORRUPTION & BHARAT BACHAO ANDOLAN
In Defence of Democracy & the Indian Constitution!
Public Protest against Union Cabinet decision to remove the CBI from the ambit & purview of the RTI.
Venue: Churchgate Station (E) - Footpath. Mumbai
Date: Tuesday the 21st of June / Time: 5.00pm
As the anger against the widespread corruption continues to increase, the Union Cabinet has silently removed the CBI from the ambit of the RTI. Which means that India;s premier investigating agency will become totally opaque & impregnable.
Whilst here the increasing call is for more transparency & the deepening of democratic rights, the Government by drawing an iron veil around the CBI, has further exposed itself to accusations of connivance & shielding the guilty.
With the battle over the Jan Lokpal Bill raging & with more ministers like Chidambaram (2G Scam) & Murli Deora (Krishna-Godavari-Mukesh Ambani Gas Scam) now under the scanner, we are not surprised that the Government is trying to shiled senior political leaders, bureaucrats & corporate ceo's from the increasing public anger & national scrutiny.
This movement is to protect the values of Freedom, Democracy, Social & Economic Justice & the Secular Constitution that was bequeathed to us by Mahtama Gandhi, Dr. Ambedkar, Bhagat Singh, Maulana Azad & all our martyrs.
We thus appeal to the people to attend the demonstration in large numbers.
Mayank Gandhi, Feroze Mithiborwala & Kishore
