Subject: A PAUSE
15 July, 2006 This evening our campaign took a pause as a beginning to a
bigger campaign of a large number of one-day campaigns across Mumbai. We are
hoping to have over 500 one-day camps organised by various groups and
individuals. So far we have commitments of over 350 camps, and some of the
groups are deliberating about the commitments they should make.
Two sitting judges of the Bombay High Court came to our campaign; – Justice
Palshikar and Justice Gokhale of the Bombay High Court. This really shows
their commitment to the cause.
Our pausing ceremony drew about 150 participants and it was a short ceremony
with a few songs and a street play. A surprise guest was Shri Urvinder Madan
-Chief Electoral Officer of the State. As our pledge to continue the
Campaign as an ongoing excercise, we lit candles around the word RTI. It
really was a pretty sight and the volunteers and guests who came showed
great enthusiasm. I think we are on the way to making RTI one of the key
agendas of Citizens in Mumbai..
We had 316 RTI applications today-our highest during the campaign.
Our total of RTI applications:
Until 14th 1906
15 July 316
We expect to have 15000 to 20000 applications in the next year.
