The criminal cases slapped against Jagrit Adivasi Dalit Sangathan members are all false cases filed to quell protests demanding: due wages and other legal rights under MGNREGA; action against negligence in maternity care along with demands for adequate health staff, drugs, etc and functional public health system; proper functioning of the PDS; stopping illegal mining; forest rights under the Forest Rights Act; honouring the rights of gram sabhas.
The fact that they have been harassed with these cases after peaceful protests for legitimate demands, is proof of the failure of governance not their “criminality”!
All protests were completely peaceful and legitimate.
Please join to protest this completely arbitrary and unconstitutional attack on our democratic rights.
