Event Description

This is to invite you to participate in a "Jan Sansad" (people’s assembly) to mark Constitution Day (26th November), and join us in collectively taking a pledge to protect and help realize basic values of the Indian Constitution.

The event will be held at  Constitution club

From 1 to 2 p.m. a number of prominent people from various sectors will come together to take the pledge. 

This will also mark the first day of a month long demonstration for Universal Pension entitlements for the unorganized sector. The slogan and message we will carry is ‘soch samajhkar aye hain, pension lekar jayenge’. 

From the 27th of November, we will sit at Jantar Mantar for a month. The 27th will be dedicated to issues related to pension, and we hope to get support from all segments of society for the cause of an independent income for the vulnerable and elderly.

From the 28th onwards, we would like to invite you to also join a People's Assembly/Jan Sansad that will be held from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. every day. After assembling in the morning, and discussing the pension demand, from 12 p.m. onwards the dharna will become a Jan Sansad, where different Campaigns will be invited to co-ordinate the platform and place the concerns of their campaign before the people. We are suggesting that each campaign formulate its demands with a focus on the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, so that the demands from all the days can be put together as a “draft peoples manifesto”. If your organization would like to participate, please contact us, so that we can co-ordinate with you and settle on the date and other details for your campaigns participation in the Jan Sansad at Jantar Mantar.
