Did you know… the One Rank One Pension agitation has been going on for over 1300 days nonstop?
Did you know… more than 3 lakh farmers have committed suicide since 1995?
Did you know… over 24 lakh central government jobs are today lying vacant, even as unemployment in the country is turning epidemic?
Between January 30 and February 7, a joint agitation led by ex-servicemen, farmers’ organisations, and youth organisations will demand that the government address these and other critical issues affecting various sections of Indian society. The citizens of India have decided that it is time for political forces to react to the public, rather than the people dancing to the tunes of politicians. The past four years in particular have severely damaged the socioeconomic fabric of India. Half-baked economic policies and poor implementation thereof are pushing hitherto marginalized communities into a precarious existence. Meanwhile, vigilante groups kill people with impunity, and communal and casteist divisions intensify through government patronage. We must no longer tolerate such trivialization and subversion of our Constitution.
Our grassroots movement, announced in July 2018, is now strengthened by citizens’ support for an agenda focusing on critical issues in order to collectively create an uplifting narrative that offers a positive direction for the country, especially as we are closing in on the 2019 General Elections. Everybody owes a responsibility towards maintaining and propagating Constitutional values, and you are invited to join the agitation.
We have often heard of how citizens take for granted the soldiers defending our borders, but who is holding the government accountable for doing the same? The current government has not shied from using the Armed Forces for reaping electoral gains, while doing nothing about the promises made, especially to ex-servicemen, in the run up […]Find out more »

This Act, however, violates the spirit of reservations which are meant […]Find out more »
