Stop insulting civil society.


Dear Friends,

You all must have read and watched this news in the media. It is outrageous to see the politicians showing their arrogance towards people of the society. In this case a college girl who captured a video just to warn all,  that "Chatpata" you have on the roadside  may not be as healthy as you think and so WATCH OUT!.

What did the girl do wrong who was humiliated and insulted publicly by Raj Purohit?   
It was conveyed with best of intentions with civic sense.

What was wrong in it for Raj Purohit, BJP city chief to take an offense?

This was totally and completely VOTE BANK POLITICS at it's best.

Imagine, a party of National status has a city Chief who cares more for vote bank politics. Who cares more for illegal vendors using foot paths, and not for what is destroying this city?

His public speech shown on all national TV channels was not only outrageous against the college girl but it crossed all decencies of the civil society.  

Imagine, Raj Purohit, the BJP City Chief is not bothered about this city facing serious issues like scarcity of drinking water, electricity shortage. Tons of garbage on the roads creating health issues because of  which drainage lines, water Nallahs getting blocked and  completely chocked that created 26 July monsoon floods and hundreds of Mumbaites lost lives. 

He is not bothered about the stinking, rotten garbage at every place that is posing serious health issues like Malaria, Chickengunia, Jaundice, Cholera.

The City Chief of BJP is not concerned with all these serious issues being faced by this city mainly because illegal settlements, and illegal hawkers are the vote banks they create and protect. This illegal activities in Mumbai is the root cause of all corrupt practices where
all governing authorities, officers, politicians are involved in the loot and destroying this city. 

If a civil society member raises an issue about an unhealthy act, it becomes a major issue for BJP City Chief Raj Purohit? And he has the arrogance to do character assassination of the young girl publicly? Who is he trying to please? His vote Bank?

YES! politicians like Raj Purohit of BJP or Digvijay Singh of Congress or Ministers of NCP simply want to create their vote banks. For them You and Me are of no concern because you and me do not  fill their pockets. To stay in power and keep looting this country is the only agenda of some who have entered politics.

And that is why Civil Society MUST DEMAND these unsocial elements be thrown out from political arena immediately and there should be no place given for such self serving self centered  people who are not only corrupt but display arrogance towards civil society.  

We the civil society must come out in millions to support Anna Hazare and his movement against corruption and corrupt politicians to cleanse this corrupt political system if our elected government has failed or supporting directly or indirectly these criminal corrupt elements. 

Raj Purohit, BJP city chief who has offended the sentiments of the Civil Society, civil society demands...

First...Raj Purohit must apologize to civil society publicly and BJP sacks Raj Purohit immediately.

Stop insulting civil society.
