NAPM's cross country yatra begins at Dandi against human rights "violations" of the BJP government

The National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM) began its nationwide "save the constitution" yatra at Dandi on October 2 against human rights violations of committed by the BJP government and looting of resources taking place ​​across the country. Those who came in support of the yatra, which began from the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in Dandi, included Prafulla Samantara (Lok Shakti Abhiyan, Odisha), Suhas Kolhekar (NAPM, Maharashtra), Dr. Sunilam (Kisan Sangharsh Samiti, Madhya Pradesh), Nita Mahadev (Gujarat Lok Samiti, Gujarat), others.
While flagging off the yatra, Prafulla Samantara said that today's situation is getting worse than the slavery of the British. The country's resources are being auctioned in favour of some big industrial houses. Go anywhere today, the farmers of the country, the tribals, the labourers, the youth, the aged, all are upset. Every value of the Constitution is being eroded.
Traveling through Dandi, the yatra reached Paradi village where it was welcomed by the Gujarat Khedut Samaj. At the public meeting, the farmers affected by the expressway, the bullet train, and other projects appealed for mass struggle against land acquisition.
The next stop was at Bharuch, where people affected by development projects welcomed the yatra. A large number of affected farmers, fishermen, and other communities came together to protest against the barrage on the Narmada river, ignoring the farmers, in order to give unlimited water of Narmada river to the industrial corridor. They pledged to further strengthen the struggle against the land being taken for various projects and industrial pollution. In the evening it reached Vadodara.
The yatra will end in Delhi on December 10, international human rights day.
