IS IT OUR DEMOCRACY; ELECTIONS IN INDIA
Its election time in India. Everyone across the country turns a nationalist and sings the chorus of the great democracy...But what is the truth behind indian democracy? Is it really for the people? The notice given below is issued by Rashtriya Padana Kendram (Political Study Centre)
DO U THINK ...
That the lives of our people will not be thrown into the hands of corporates to fulfil their greed for profit?
That there will be no more eviction and land grab at the behest of capitalist forces?
That there will be job security?
That there will be no price hike?
That the daliths and adivasis will get land and they will not suffer ineqality anymore?
That our women will achieve eqality in every sphere with men?
That the problem of environmental destruction will be addressed correctly?
