 “Orissa Soochna Adhikar Abhijan”: Things are going on in full pace in Orissa.

On 17th June, we had a preparatory meet of NGOs and In Orissa, a group of NGOs that include CYSD, OJA, ODAF, Sahavagi Vikas Abhiyan, RCDC, Utkal Sewak Samaj, Task Force on Women and Violence, AGRAGAMEE, Abhiyan, The Humanity, SODA,  NYK, NSS, OLS-Awareness, ADHIKAR, NIPIDIT, BGVS, Indian Red Cross,  Natya Chetana, Prajna Sathi Abhiyan, CHETABANI, DAGAR, Yusuf Meheraulli Centre, ISD, Atheist Center etc in association with the State Information Commission and various other stakeholders/social change agents are spearheading this significant Campaign.

The name of the campaign has been decided to be Orissa Soochna Adhikar Abhijan”.  Mr Nishikant mohapatra and Dr Srimant Roy are coordinating it. For the purpose, different committees have been formed to take care of the specific aspects like media liaison, information and communication, volunteer mobilization etc.

On 23rd June, there will be a one-day orientation programme for the volunteers who will be helping the public in all aspects during this fifteen-day campaign.
  For out station volunteers, 30th June may be fixed for orientation.
  For wide-scale publicity of the campaign, it has been proposed to undertake inter alia, padyatras, nukads, pestering, wall painting, leaflet distribution at schools and colleges etc.
  Although NDTV and Dharitri have agreed to be the partners of the campaign by providing ad space, other media houses are most welcome to share the huge responsibility and contribute toward the success of the campaign.
  On 19th June a press conference was organised to brief the media about the campaign. The response from the media was highly satisfactory. TOI, Indian Express, Statesman, Pioneer Dharitri(Oriya daily), Anupam Bharat ((Oriya daily) and OTV (Vernacular TV news channel) carried the story
  The budget and details are being worked out. Individua;l NGOs have made some contributions.  Some funding agencies are also being approached for finance.
