Opinion on The Hindu Editorial “Growing crackdown on activists”

Opinion on The Hindu Editorial  “Growing crackdown on activists”                                            

                                          Whatever be the government be it a UPA government or NDA government, there is no difference in treatment towards the social activists.Recent incident in Rajasthan where a mob, allegedly led by BJP legislator Kanwar Lal Meena, attacked the members of organisations such as the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sanghathan (MKSS) at Aklera in Jhalawar district, in a sign that sections of the ruling party in the State were unhappy with civil society activists entering a region falling under a Lok Sabha constituency represented by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in the past and by her son Dushyant Singh now, and demanding answers from the authorities. UPA’s Kudankulam and NDA’s Greenpeace handling shows that it is not the place for activists, be it’s an NGO or individual activists. Considerably large number of cases filed against the activists and large number of RTI’s are getting rejected. This can be dealt effectively, by people with socio, economic, and political empowerment. Lokpal type agitation may be needed to address the issues of this nature. United efforts by NGO’s and Civil Societies is need of the hour, to enable the common man.
