Homeless Satyagrahis Battled Heavy Rains

Awas Haq Satyagrah Entered 13th Day 

Mumbai | 7th June 2015: As the pre-monsoon showers hit the parts of Mumbai and brought some respite from the heat, those struggling at Mandala for their housing right bravely stood up to the rains by holding with hands a loosely built pandal covered with crevice tarpaulin allowing water to fall in. The heavy the rain was falling louder the Satyagrahis happily started singing Shankaon Ke Sagar Hum Laang Jayenge, Mandala Yahin Basayenge (we will cross the sea of doubts, we will inhabit our Mandala here).

Meanwhile Satyagrahis managed to get an appointment with the Housing Minister Shri. Prakash Mehta, who they will be meeting in the afternoon tomorrow. Main demands would be to give them right to shelter, they should be allowed to stay at Mandala as the proposed beneficiaries with all the basic amenities and no demolition without the surveys of the houses as per new cut-off date.

The relay fast is still on and was carried forward by another 11 Mandala evictees. To strengthen the struggle, slum dwellers from other bastis also pouring in, considering the fight as a mutual one. The existing slums in Mumbai are striding for basic amenities. These slums lack schools, hospitals, toilets, electricity.
