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
We did 212 RTI applications today.
Our total of RTI applications:
13 July 212
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.
