Right to Information – Master key to good governance

Mumbai- 14th July – Shailesh Gandhi – Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey attended campaign.

Posted by rtiact2005 on July 14, 2006

Tomorrow evening our campaign pauses as a beginning to a bigger campaign of a large number of one-day campaigns across Mumbai. We are hoping to have over 500 camps organised by various groups and individuals. Various diverse groups are making their commitments after some deliberations.
Our pausing ceremony will be from 6.30pm to 7.00pm and we are requesting Citizens to come in large numbers and support this Antibribery campaign using RTI. Apart from a street play on RTI and a few songs, all present will light a candle and we shall make a R T I with candles. Should be a pretty and inspiring sight for everyone to spur us to the longer campaign ahead of putting RTI into the bloodstream
of Mumbai.
We did 212 RTI applications today.
Our total of RTI applications:
earlier                  1694
13 July                   212
Total                     1906
We are sure to cross 2000 tomorrow.
The volunteers were thrilled to have Aruna Roy and Nikhil Dey visiting the campaign. Both of them interacted with  the volunteers, and told them about the early history of the RTI struggle. For the first time, they made us Mumbaikars sing songs and raise slogans. This was certainly the high point for everyone. Shri Nana Chudasama, former sherrif of Mumbai and head of Giant’s international also visited and supported the campaign. Shri Suresh Kumar,- Maharashtra Upalokayukta came to show solidarity with the Citizens. Shri Dara Gandhy and Shri Kekoo Gandhy of PCGT had come and so also the vetaran Gandhian and mover of the Sarvodaya movement in Mumbai Shri Somaiyaji.

  2. Gope Lalwani said

    I am 77 years old father of victim of 498A, who’s son
    committed SIN of sponsoring a Indian Girl to marry her in US.

    I have been named in the complaint and declared proclaimed
    offender listed on look-out-list at Indian Airports for arrest
    without Bail.

    As a matter of fact, I did not attend my son’s marriage ceremony
    nor lived with them during the period of their marriage. I was
    out of USA during the period.

    Here are the facts, and your opinnion shall be appreciated.

    In this case; a Criminal Complaint was registered in India
    against entire US Citizens family under section 498A with the
    collusion and connivance of the police.

    She is a Law Attorney of 10 years legal practise in Mumbai..
    Her father is also Senior Law Attorney at Mumbai High Court

    They got US citizens arrested at Mumbai Air-port, while returning
    from short visit to India visiting 92 years old ailing grand Mother,in June 2003 after about 2 months of receiving and acknowledging the US Decree of divorce of April 2003, in which, she has been named “blackmailer and extortionist” in proceedings.

    1. She did not disclose in the F.I.R ” registered in December 2002 that the Divorce proceedings were going on against her in US
    court and she had filed her response in September 2002 asking for
    Rs. one crore as alimony alternatively restoration of conjugal

    2. She did not disclose in the complaint that she had travelled to
    US on
    sponsored fiance visa (K-1) to marry in US with US citizen.

    3. She stated in the complaint that she married in India with a US
    Green Card Holder Indian Citizen and named all the members of
    of the US citizen family as” Indian Citizens residing in US”. No
    proof to support the statement has been furnished nor the
    has been recorded in the F.I.R.

    4. Her Passport was neither inspected nor verified nor passport
    number entered in F.I.R as required by law, with the connivance
    of Mumbai Police.
    Nor the US Immigration Visa was investigated which she said in
    the complaint that she had acquired the same by fraud from
    US Consulate in Mumbai
    (The production and Inspection of her passport would
    have rendered the said complaint fraud and fraudulent)

    5. She did not disclose to US divorce court during court proceedings
    in January 2003; that she had filed a criminal complaint in
    India earlier
    in December 2002 under section 498A of Indian Penal Code, and
    obtained Non-bailable Arrest Warrants and got posted at Air-
    in India for arrest as proclaimed offenders.

    7. She has however left India and settled in Dubai for good

    Complainant had also sought assistance of “abused women’s”
    organisation in US in the divorce matter, but the organisation’s
    lawyer withdrew as soon as it became clear that her case was
    based on “Blackmail and Extortion”.

    She has not made any allegations ( such as made in the police
    complaint in India ) to the US women’s organisation’ or US police.
    This is clear evidence of Manipulation, Misuse, Mockery and Naked
    Abuse of Indian Legal and Judicial System by the unscrupulous
    woman and her father both belonging to legal profession.

    Can any body help and investigate Nagpada Police Station in Mumbai to get me Justice?
