Dear friends,

The Salem-Chennai eight lane green corridor project, a step towards development and progress is for the people and for their betterment as the government claims. This project would be build at a cost of 10000 crores and cutting through numerous fields, farms, lakes, rivers and forests and thus causing a great deal of trouble not only to the people earning their lively hood from the farms that they own which falls on this stretch but also to the existing ecology, flora and fauna..

The govt is adamant to go ahead with this project and is not ready to listen or discuss the plight of the farmers and the land owners or even study the effects that this project will have on mother nature. Expressing an opinion for it or against it is a right that these people have.

Keeping that in mind, Piyush Manush a citizen and an activist from Salem made an attempt to express his opinion towards the same. Following this, he was arrested on 18th June 2018 around 7:00 pm under sections 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot); 189 (threat of injury to public servant); 506 (ii) (criminal intimidation) IPC and 7 (1) Criminal Law Amendment Act. .

Time and again, Piyush Manush has been a voice for the people and this time again he has tried to do the same. Hence, we request all of you reading this, to sign this petition and support the cause that harrassment and such intolerance towards activists like Piyush and others and their families must come to an end. A free voice needs to be appreciated in a free country like ours and not apprehended
