ANOTHER PUNCH BELOW THE BELT. THE ATROCITIES OF POWER CAMOUFLAGED IN THE
GARB OF CHARITY CAN CERTAINLY NOT BE APPLAUDED.IT IS REALLY IRONICAL THAT
JUST A FRACTION OF THE HOME OF WHICH YOU ARE DEPRIVED OF SO RUTHLESSLY IS
OFFERED WITH GREAT POMP AS A SHELTER TO DIVERT THE FOCUS FROM THE BIG LAND
ACQUISITION & HOME DEMOLITIONS. IT MAY GLORIFY THE DOERS IN THE EYE OF THE
ILL-INFORMED /MISGUIDED PUBLIC,BUT FOR THE SUFFERERS OF YAMUNA PUSHTA,THESE
NIGHT SHELTERS  THERE WILL BE CONSTANT REMINDERS OF THEIR LOSS.SHOULD WE
INSTEAD NOT STOP CREATING FURTHER THE NEED FOR MORE SHELTERS BY MAKING MORE
& MORE PEOPLE SHELTERS? MORE DEMOLITIONS IRRESPECTIVE OF THE HARSH WEATHER
CONDITIONS ? DEMOLISH TO BUILD...WHAT ?

Subject: [mpisgmedia] MCD-ActionAid Night Shelter in Yamuna Pushta

Another winter seems poised to pass without solutions
to the simple problem of sheltering the homeless for
the night, amidst media blitz about illegal
problem-sustaining initiatives in dubious
government-NGO partnerships made out to be gloriously
humane.

That, of course, has become routine in Delhi since
winter of 2002-03.

But for those who rendered thousands homeless from
Pushta to be setting up there a night-shelter for 400
- in multiple Master Plan violation, contempt of
court, violation of Art.14, contempt of citizens'
rights for participation and accountability in
development decisions - is, surely, a bit much.

See how much:
