Why I didn't go to Jantar Mantar - Harsh Mander

Harsh Mander


I support the more general demand of the demonstrators that citizens must be consulted before laws and policies that affect them are framed and passed.

And yet why could I not actively join the demonstration at Jantar Mantar? First, the symbols and allies that the campaign chose disturbed me: the stage was decorated with a picture of Bharat Mata, almost identical to that propagated by the right-wing RSS.
