Known Social Activist and Narmada Bachao Andolan leader Ms.Medha Patkar has whole heartedly supported the Long-March from Kanyakumari to Hussainiwala being conducted by the AIYF-AISF.Following is the text of his statement:
“I,along with the fighting people of Narmada vallay extend warmest greeting and support to the Historic Long-March organised by AIYF-AISF,with the slogan “Save India,Change India”
The Long March reiterates revolutionary tradition of both organisations which have always upheld the great values of freedom,democracy,secularism and socialism.
The slogans of the March related to right to employment,education,reservation in private sector and in Defence of secularism and public sector are of much relevance today. The anger of young generation against atrocities on Dalits,minorities and woman is also reflected in this 60 days long laborious campaign.
I am really enthused on hearing about the warm response it has created among all sections of people.
From the Narmada valley where I am participating in the life and death battle of the down trodden against the anti-People development policy of the ruling classes.I SALUTE YOU,MY DEAR YOUNG COMRADES.”
