  10. Prashant Bhushan Yogendra Yadav open letter to CM of Delhi Arvind

      Edit
    Arvind BRO,
    We both forcing your name this open chiththi na Koi Sandesh likhni is. Ten days ago we ask you that you come from Bangalore, at the time of visitation was prompted for. But so far you have not. There is a lot of uncertainty in the environment. The party’s volunteer, are sitting around saying things that well-wishers Pro and this thing-dealing blows and some good news is coming. There are also concerned that mind mind party unity will remain or not. It concerns are being voiced that the closing number of the conversations in the siddhanto not being a compromise. That’s why we’re chiththi na Koi Sandesh public.
    After coming back from the same night your Bangalore to meet several senior fellow of aaye yogendra’s House. Then began a series of conversations that our and PRA. Kumar and PRA. Ajit was JH. We both have proposed a written conversation. Initially growing in precisely the direction the conversation. The National Coordinator post like fizul issues and charges is missing nub. When PAC has built the organization across the country consider the election out of Delhi and hear the voice of the volunteer announced so we thought finally getting the answer on those questions now that we were taken. But while internal democracy in the Party on these questions only drew solid chat so frustrating. Agreed on the principles but to say any concrete suggestion was ruled either clear or flavour.
    1. we request that conforms to the State’s sense of Swaraj at the State level are. We were told that the Organization and the program could be running in petty’s case, but the country at any corner of Panchayat and municipality elections will be taken from Delhi decided to fight, and he also just PAC by.Kumar
    Brother’s decision to send the Maharashtra have confirmed our suspicions.
    2. we demand that according to the true spirit of our movement in the past few days on charges four large pressures (two million Czech, uttamnagar alcohol seizures, law Minister’s degree and defections and try to form a Government with manipulating) the Ombudsman investigate collusion towards. The answer that everyone else is possible, but the party’s top leadership from any “sensitive” case is not even seeking on the go.
    3. We suggest that democratic participation consistent with the demands of our party took the opinion of valantiyaron in every major decision the votes go, demand generates. Answers asking if that opinion, but forget to vote by volunteer, especially while choosing a candidate.
    4. we have said that the party will come under his promise to accept homologous RTI. We were told that the party will make some information public, but come within the purview of RTI is not practical.
    5. the fact that all your best offer by filling the EC provide the details of your property, the affidavit contained details of the party and rule of a post inviting family members as applicable. We all just assumed.
    6. one of your side has raised the issue repeatedly. Yogendra was asked whether they may be exempted if they have open in Haryana. The people who worked there have ballasts yogendra atkae State will be ousted. We have not accepted since as long as internal democracy do not answer questions of our origins until such a discussion will also take part in the bargaining.
    We interacted with on open mind all these questions. When the Earth Reddy on these issues a proposed that our proposal was very different, so we accepted it too. But now the earth met this minimum resolution you have ruled out from scratch. Admiral Ramdas also drew the same failure.
    We come to understand that the purpose of the conversation was not resolving our issues we had to achieve istifa. Talking partner rotate on your behalf-to beat were repeating the same request repeatedly that we now give the istifa National Executive. The reason this is urging that it was said to be your personal, you have said that as long as we are both national Executive until you can’t work on the post of national coordinator. That you even said when we were brought out of the PAC was proposed. Proximity to your many people publicly also are saying that we will be nishkashit from the party. Overall coming off to the side of your message or give, or else the behaved gently disparaged by the istifa verses. All these not only your advisor, you are sad to hear we are very kahlava and have a setback.
    What we have done, Arvind brother you is so personal to us khundak Court? You have to amend the media no matter what lies are spread, but you are way good knows from the truth. We lawyers27 a post you ever date or not prompted for. We never even if you have not tried to overthrow. Does not suit jinan here but you know that we both help each delicate turn. Yes, we are sure to have you ask the question. Don’t even ask if you wanted. Yes, we must warn you against senselessly and threshold, and Yes, even when you hear the forbidden so we staying within the organization also opposed the decorum. What our party made on the principles of Swaraj to do so is a crime? Yes, there will always be things painful and hamri. But what you don’t want to keep the party a person who can speak the truth in the eyes and your eyes?
    Yun also, Arvind brother, as you know, we have this dialogue had offered his resignation in a written note, provided:
    · Panchayat and municipality participation in elections at the hands of the State unit of the final verdict to be announced
    · Recently, the party joined the national Ombudsman quite large around accusations towards transferred
    · Opinions of the national Ombudsman lokayukta States immediately appointed jaay
    · Policy, program and every major decision the election worker’s opinion began to enter and go vote if
    · According to CIC to accept the party declaring order of RTI.
    · According to the Constitution of the National Executive Committee vacancies National Council by secret ballot go full of
    We are still on strike. If our big improvements in the across the party give istifa once in, we would be very happy. Stay in our national Executive is an important issue. The real thing that keep some independent voices in the National Executive of the survivors organization and for you is extremely important.
    Arvind brother, optional in the country today is turning very delicate political impossibility. The common man is not party to the country New Delhi rajniti as expected have emerged. Our one small mistake can cause profound damage to the movement. Do not let the country and the world today many Indians are bigger expectations than this party bandhi. Over the past weeks we’ve met thousands of volunteer message. He pushes her in the party is what is happening. All those that want to get to work with some kind of party leader, party unity persists, as well as his soul intact. Make any thing hard todna easy. Your leadership in historic victory today after some of the big mind big time to work. The whole country is watching us, exclusively on you. We hope you will not ganvaege this historic opportunity.
    At a meeting of the National Council is just one day. Hope you keep thinking a big occasion party unity and his soul shall find a way of keeping bachaye. Any effort you will find with us.
    Sasneh
    Your,
    Prashant Bhushan

  11.   Edit
    DSCN3995
    New Delhi. 25 March 2015
    The global partnership between RB and Save the Children today launched a unique and ground-breaking programme to help eradicate child deaths from diarrhoea.
    The partnership unveiled two innovative new hygiene and sanitation products by RB (formerly known as Reckitt Benckiser) alongside Save the Children’s sustainable Stop Diarrhoea programme in India, Pakistan and Nigeria – aimed at preventing, controlling and treating the unnecessary killer.
    The combination of RB’s expertise in product development and research, and Save the Children’s experience of delivering life-saving work will help save thousands of young lives a year. Funded by RB, the Stop Diarrhoea programme, will for the first time fully implement the World Health Organisation and UNICEF 7-point plan to ensure comprehensive diarrhoea control.
    Each year 567,000 children under-five die needlessly from diarrhoea, equivalent to 64 children every hour. In an ambitious drive to help end this, Save the Children and RB have committed to working with national governments and other partners to implement the 7 Point Plan. To improve hand washing and community sanitation, RB and 19 of their suppliers (who volunteered their time) have developed two unique products that are completely new to market.
    The products are a low-cost germ protection bar that can be used by families for cleaning and washing hands (including children from the age of one). Two years in the making, the second is a ‘game-changing’ toilet powder to make the use of pit latrines more hygienic. The powder keeps flies away, reduces both faecal matter and the transmission of germs. The benefits of the toilet powder should encourage communities to make better use of the more hygienic pit latrines, as opposed to defecating in public areas.
    For the first time, RB will not be making a profit from these products and the revenue will be reinvested into the Stop Diarrhoea programme and fighting diarrhoea. They will also be produced locally, encouraging entrepreneurship, in addition to reducing the overall carbon footprint and transport costs associated with their manufacture.
    The two unique products are major breakthroughs in science and technology to target specific issues and save lives. Both products have been created to be affordable for consumers who have not traditionally been able to afford personal and home hygiene products.
    Toilet Powder:
    – The fragranced powder has highly absorptive qualities and also has a well-balanced combination of micro-organisms that accelerate the natural and continuous degradation of faeces reducing the need to regularly empty pit latrines and making them more hygienic. Initial tests show significant volume reduction after only one week’s usage.
    – Highly biodegradable the powder has been developed combining natural raw material from food production waste, such as rice husk and coconut peat.
    – The citrus fragrance reduces the unpleasant odours which also results in a reduction of flies and pests which use the toilets as a food source, spreading disease.
    Affordable Germ Protection Bar:
    – Has been developed as a product to be used by families to wash themselves, their children, (safe from children from the age of 1 year)
    – Requires less water so effective even when reduced access to water
    – Contains ingredients that help in moisturising the skin and reduces the transmission of disease-causing germs
