In any civilised democratic society killing of innocents, women and children, whatever the demands and politics should be condemned. We condemn the barbaric acts of killing, maiming and sexual assaults in all forms of conflicts.

This convention against draconian laws organised by Asha Parivar, INSAF, NCDHR, FDI, SAHR, APDP (JK) forward Youth Front, Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee Hyderabad and Reach out condemns the brutal murder of activists Lalit Mehta and Kameswar Yadav of Jharkhand and T. Babu of NAPM Karnataka.
Lalit Mehta and Kameswar Yadav were murdered by Contractors for exposing the corruption and carrying out social audit of National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA).
It should be noted that NREGA is the much flaunted flagship pro-rural poor programme of the U.P.A. Government which came to power campaigning against the N.D.A. Regimes handling agrarian distress and high rural unemployment which forced distress migration to urban slums.
Lalit Mehta and Kameswar Yadav’s murder is a clear indication of class violence prevailing in Rural India. These acts of brutal murder and other forms of bestiality perpetrated on women, dalits and other marginal and oppressed sections is a clear manifestation of a decaying but stubborn feudal order in the country side, who even after six decades of Independence refuses to give up their extra constitutional privileges including the shameless right to pilferage and embezzlement of funds meant for the rural poor with active connivance of an equally feudal and corrupt beaurocracy.
It should be noted that after an ardous struggle by Daman evam bhrastachar sangharsh samiti Jharkhand, The Jharkhand Govt. took a decision to handover the case of Lalit Mehta to CBI.
It is unfortunate that even a month after the order the CBI is yet to initiate the probe into Lalit Mehta’s murder. We demand that the Central and Jharkhand Govt. to expedite the CBI enquiry. We also demand that the Jharkhand police stop pressurising Lalit Mehta’s wife Ashrita and stop creating hurdles for CBI enquiry.
