End slavery of Indians in Agro Pontino, Italy
Hindi I just read online news about the exploitation of Indians, particularly Sikhs in the Agro Pontino region of Italy. “I was working 12-13 hours a day, including Sundays, with no holidays, no rest,” Singh said. The farm owner paid him 100 to 150 euros ($120 to $175) a month, he said, which amounts to less than 50 cents an hour. The legal minimum for farmworkers is around 10 euros an hour. The working conditions are inhumane and they are treated likes slaves. Upon resistance, they are threatened to be killed. “When I found a lawyer ready to help me, (the owner) told me... ‘I’ll kill you, I’ll dig a hole, throw you in it, and fill it up... he had a gun, I saw it,” he recalled. Surprisingly, this region produces Mozzarella which is sold at around €15/kg and the agriculture Mafia earns a lot of profit out of the hard work of these people. The UN’s special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery estimated in 2018 that more than 400,000 agricultural workers in Italy risk being exploited and almost 100,000 likely face “inhumane conditions”. Last month, a 27-year-old from Mali collapsed and died in the southeastern Apulia region after working a day in the fields in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. The problem of exploitation of farm workers has not gone unnoticed in parliament. It was under an anti-caporali law passed in 2016 that Singh’s employer was prosecuted. But unions say there are still too few checks and labour inspectors to enforce the law properly. Sociologist Omizzolo, who works with the Eurispes think tank, spent years researching farm labour abuse in the Latina area - some of it undercover. Many helpless Indians are being exploited in a foreign country and no one is speaking up for them. Those who speak up are forced to go into hiding. There are too many lives at stake. It is up to common citizens in India to speak up. Sign my petition to ensure legally-approved working conditions are enforced in Italy.

Installation Of Netaji's Statue Near India Gate On His 125th Birth Anniversary
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was a fierce nationalist whose patriotism made him one of the greatest freedom fighters in Indian history. He is also credited with setting up the Indian National Army (INA) as a separate entity from the British Indian Army. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose is one of the most revered leaders of all time. He was extremely passionate about the future of India and its development. He was a heroic leader and soldier. His deeds are practically impossible to replicate. By following his thoughts, ideas and deeds the nation can achieve everything it deserves. Netaji was a true son of Bharat Mata. I, Devdutta Maji, a social activist, have always been inspired by the ideals set by Netaji. Maj. Gen. (Retd.) G D Bakshi Ji, Shri Pushpendra Kulshreshta Ji and Col R S N Singh Ji have been motivational in my work on Netaji. I derive immense motivation from them. Starting from 23rd January 2021 will be the run-up year to the 125th Birth Anniversary of India’s True Hero ‘Netaji’. The best way to honour the thousands of soldiers of INA who sacrificed their lives for our motherland is to honour the man who led the INA. By honouring Netaji, we will be setting an example before our younger generations how to live and die for India! On this occasion I appeal to the Honourable President, the Honourable Prime Minister, the Honourable Home Minister and the Honourable Defence Minister to install a Magnificent Statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in the empty Canopy/Chhatri behind India Gate, facing the War Memorial or any suitable location in New Delhi. This Statue will be a humble tribute to Netaji from all Indians and NRIs. In addition to the above, I would also like to take this opportunity to appeal to the Central Government to declassify all files related to Netaji and declare 23rd January a National Holiday. These have been long pending appeals and have not been addressed till date by any government. Please sign this petition and transform this appeal into a national movement because nobody else apart from Netaji deserves this honour. #Netaji's_Statue "It is blood alone that can pay the price of freedom. Give me blood and I will give you freedom" - Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

Reopen Kailashahar Airport in Tripura by 2021 - Make It Operational ASAP - IXH VEKR AAI
Need to reopen Kailashahar airport is very much critical and urgent affair for the people of northern part of the state of Tripura. Students of North Tripura and adjacent places struggle to commute if they wish to go outside Northeast for higher studies Medical patients need it the most when there is an emergency medical treatment / surgery to be done in places like Kolkata or so Industrial development and business growth are key to growth of a region resulting in many opportunities e.g. new employment generation, availability of goods and services, better companies visiting the colleges for recruitment etc. Tourism industry depending on the tourist spot UNAKOTI has a huge potential leading to more revenue collection by Govt. Overall, the people of northern part of the state i.e. Dharmanagar, Kanchanpur, Kumarghat, Kailashahar and nearby areas deserve to have an airport at the disposal since traveling to Agartala for the same purpose is not no convenient by many from this part of the state Requesting to expedite the work and make the Kailashahar airport operational before the end of the year 2021.#NarendraModi #Tripura #TransformingTripura #tripuratourism #AgartalaAirport #airports #airportvibes #airportservices #airportlife #unakoti #northtripura #kailashahar #dharmanagar #aai #iata #pmoReference links: http://www.uniindia.com/abandoned-tripura-airport-likely-to-be-operational-by-2021/east/news/1767489.html https://indianexpress.com/article/north-east-india/tripura/civil-aviation-ministry-invites-bids-for-30-unserved-underserved-airports-airstrips-in-northeast-6154187/
Petition to Narendra Modi
FREE HINDU TEMPLES IN INDIA FROM GOVT CONTROL
FREE HINDU TEMPLES FROM GOVT CONTROL Hindu temples in most Indian states are under Govt control through Acts like the Tamil Nadu HR&CE, A.P. Religious Institutions Act, etc. This means the govt appoints officers and politicians on the board of ‘temple trusts’, including as Chief Executives. Tirupati until recently had a Christian while Kali Bari Mandir in Bengal has a Muslim, as its respective Chief Executives. Some of these officers don’t even accept ‘Prasadam’. Such intolerant non-Hindus have no business sitting on Hindu temple boards. TN HR&CE department takes away 4% of all Hundi and other donations, as audit fee & 12% as administration fee. Thus 16% of all your donations goes into Govt coffers Temple owned lands are encroached upon, often by religious places of other communities. For instance, in Tamil Nadu, an illegal cemetery has been built on land owned by Ganapathy Temple, Tirunelveli; temples have lost ~ 50,000 acres of land since the 1951. Even conduct of Pujas (how, when, what if offered) is regularly interfered with. Such demonic behavior is perpetrated by Govt on Hindus (& Jains) alone. Govt does not control nor interferes Mosques, Churches or even Gurudwaras. Somehow the most inclusive, majority Hindu community, is an easy target for the govt. And this is not stopping. Recently, the Maharashtra govt has taken over the ‘Shani Temple’ with the excuse of better management. It seems the govt believes only Hindus & Jains are incapable (and not Christians, Muslims, Sikhs) of management of their places of worship. Approx 5000 murtis stolen from temples in India, are decorating gardens in US, Europe. These deities who we worship should be in our temples. They get stolen because of apathy, and worse, active connivance of govt officials with art smugglers. “HR&CE department neither had the capacity nor qualified experts to carry out conservation work and no proper system was being followed for documenting, assessing, reporting, tendering, etc., of heritage structures” is what UNESCO report of protected TN temples said about HR&CE Deptt. Source: http://bit.ly/2KkUYgZ Once the Govt moves out, this community money belonging to the Hindus could be used to run Schools, Orphanages, Veda Pathshalas, Gaushalas, Ayurvedic Clinics, Annadanam (free food) and to stop religious conversions across India. What can be done 1. NDA Govt constitutionally CAN, and MUST bring out a Central Legislation to override individual HR&CE Acts across all Indian states, thus leaving State Govts to only REGULATE religious institutions and it must be applicable to all faiths. 2. Campaign with the Modi Govt. on Social Media. You can reach them on: Twitter: @narendramodi, @PMOIndia & @BJP4India with hashtag #FreeHinduTemples Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/narendramodi Prime Minister’s Office can be connected on email at email@example.com 3. Call PM Modi on #MannKiBaat; Dial 1800117800 and tell him to Free Hindu Temples. http://bit.ly/2Mhf357 4. Sign for this signature campaign; More reading: www.freemytemples.com/

Save Navi Mumbai Wetlands Save Yourselves .
Chief Minister of Maharashtra, 80 hectares of Mangroves & Wetlands worth crores on prime location on Palm Beach Road saved by High Court orders from being handed over to a private builder for residential and commercial development in name of golf course by changing the land use from No Development Zone to Regional Park Zone and Residential Zone . The Bombay High Court on 1st November 2018 shelved the state government’s ambitious proposal to build a golf course and a residential colony near the upcoming Navi Mumbai airport calling it a destruction of water bodies/wetlands “which will infringe the fundamental rights of citizens.”A division bench of Justices Abhay Oka and Riyaz Chagla was hearing a bunch of PILs against an October 2016 notification of the state’s Urban Development Department. Interestingly, one of the reasons cited by the state in favour of its plan was that since the area was frequented by migratory birds and was located within 4 km of the proposed international airport, it could pose a danger to aircraft by exposing them to bird hits.“There is no material placed on record ito show that for preventing possible bird hits, making of the golf course is the only solution,” the bench observed.. It then added that the water bodies maintain ecological balance and therefore, “public trust doctrine” imposed an obligation on the state government and related agencies to protect them. The PILs also sought protection for two city lakes – the DPS lake in Sector 52, Nerul and the other one at Palm Beach Road, Navi Mumbai – both of whom were in danger due to garbage and construction debris dumping. The court directed that all the water bodies shown in the National Wetlands Inventory and Assessment prepared by Space Application Centre, Ahmedabad must be protected. On the issue of the golf course and a residential colony, the court also noted that although the proposal was being discussed by the planning authority – City and Industrial Development Corporation – since 2002, the authorities had failed to show that the impact on the ecosystem and environment was assessed or at least “such assessment was made available to the Planning Authority or the state government” while clearing the proposal. Why waste public money in unnecessary litigation ? Action should be taken & legal cost should be recovered from officials responsible for such decisions .

Petition to Government of Maharashtra., Office of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra
Release allotted funds for the P.K Sawant memorial in Ratnagiri.
The memorial of Shri P.K. Sawant (Balasaheb Sawant), Ex Chief Minister of Maharashtra is still incomplete after ten years of start of building. The funds which have been allotted for this by GOM, have not yet been fully released as per news reports by ABP Maza dated 06th May 2021. We request the GOM to release the funds and complete this project. Shri P.K. Sawant was an honest and an upright man who gave everything for the Nation, Maharashtra and especially for the Konkan region. As a tall figure from the Konkan region, it is imperative that he be remembered for his work and his legacy. He fought for the freedom struggle, was an important part of the Sanyukta Maharashtra movement and served for a long time as the Agriculture minister of Maharastra. He was so involved in the above mentioned struggles that he neglected his personal life for it. A tall figure in the history of Maharashtra and of India and he must get his due.

Main Eastern Highway -22.17 km from Placheri to Ponkunnam.
We, the undersigned would like to inform you about a serious issue which needs your urgent attention. This complaint is regarding issues in the construction of Main Eastern Highway especially the stretch of 22.17 km from Placheri to Ponkunnam by KSTP. We need to bring your attention of narrow down the important city in this stretch Karickattor location at Google map. https://maps.app.goo.gl/y1sZchLK9a2sqdoX9 and Manimala at https://maps.app.goo.gl/PsjNAxrhuipyih1z7 Also, we failed to understand the reason for the four hairpin curves at muleplavu ,1km far from Manimala city, and each of these curves at a distance of 25 meters. Unfortunately, KSTP engineering failed to find out the proper place to make the bridge in muleplavu. It has been witnessed many small accidents, we are afraid it will be a dangerous zone in near future. https://maps.google.com/?cid=15955318135979800953&entry=gps Main Eastern Highway is categorized as State Highway - 08 ( SH-08 ) of Kerala. It is the second-longest State Highway of Kerala covering a distance of 153.6 km. The districts it passes through are Kollam, Pathanamthitta, Kottayam, Idukki, and Ernakulam. The upgrading work of Punalur -Ponkunnam-Thodupuzha stretch is currently under progress as part of the World Bank-funded Kerala State Transport Project (KSTP). At present development of Punalur- Ponukunnam 82 KM distance is divided into Pnokunam- Placheri 22 KM stretch, Placheri - Konni 30 KM stretch, Konni -Punalur 30 Km stretch. The above work was done through the KSTP contracting with Sreedhanya (248.63 core ), EKK infrastructure limited (279 Core ),RDFCVCC (221.04 core) respectively. With respect to this budget, Sreedhanya estimated 11.30 cores per KM development. The width of this stretch is about 10-14 meters which itself is not developed to its capacity with its available land and quality of parallel MC road SH 01 however, we observed many important cities narrow down further from this limit. Which is going to be a bottleneck in traffic. The main trunk road to Sabarimala, Kerala's Largest Pilgrim Centre starts from Main Eastern Highway near Pathanamthitta. It is also the shortest route to the Kerala State Capital Thiruvananthapuram from Kumali and other major townships of Idukki district Like Munnar, Kattappana, Thodupuzha, Moolamattam, Nedumkandam etc We, therefore, request you to kindly take necessary action to mend the ways so that people of the area have good traffic clean roads. in solidarity, Eastern Highway protection group.
