Swaraj Abhiyan Is Demanding Conversion Of Race Course Club Into a National Memorial for Farmers+Kisan Haat
[New Delhi] Swaraj Abhiyan‘s Bhushan and Yadav Protested For a Memorial for Farmers and “Kisan Haat”In Delhi
They protested outside Delhi Race Course
Swaraj Abhiyan leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav today staged a protest outside the Delhi Race Course, demanding that the site be converted into a memorial for farmers and a ‘Kisan Haat’ be opened on the lines of Delhi Haat as the land was forcibly acquired.
Swaraj Abhiyan claimed that the land, which was part of Malcha village, was being acquired by the Britishers when they shifted the capital from Calcutta to Delhi. However, while the landing was being “forcible” acquired and the farmers were being offered “pittance” as compensation.
“The land was acquired from the farmers under the guise of public purpose and it is now being used by as a gambling den in front of the Prime Minister’s House. Is this why land acquisition ordinance is needed? Is this public use?
“Swaraj Abhiyan demands Race Course land be used as memorial for farmers who died in forcible land acquisition in independent India or those who were forced to commit suicides due to discrimination and neglect of agriculture by successive governments,” said activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan.
He added the remaining place should be used as Kisan Haat where farmers can come and sell their organic products.
Swaraj Abhiayan said the lease of the land expired in 1998, but the land has still not been taken back by the government.
“Delhi Race Club land not taken back by government after expiration. Hints to collusion of public authority with private interests.
The Urban Development Ministry served eviction notice to Club on 25 October 1999 but after that public authorities have been lax.
“Delhi Race Club lease expired in 1998 and has not been renewed. Club has been allowed to carry on its operations.
Nonetheless Delhi Race Club made a profit of Rs 2.31 crore in the financial year ending 31 March, 2013. It has an odd practice: it charges Rs 4,000 as daily ‘Mobile Phone Permission'(Entry Fee of Rs 60 without the phone!),” Swaraj Abhiyan tweeted through its twitter handle.
Swaraj Abhiyan said it has given a notice to the Prime Minister regarding this, failing which they will use “peaceful” and “democratic” ways to fulfil their demands, giving a hint that a legal course could be taken in this matter.

[Pune]FTII Students Narrowing Their Chakravyuh Against Chairman Gajendra [Yudhishtir]Chauhan
The Modi government came under fresh attack today over the appointment of TV actor and BJP member Gajendra Chauhan as chairman of FTTI’s governing council with the decision that has led to a strike by its students dubbed as an “assault” on one of the country’s finest institutions.
As students of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) remained unrelenting in their demand for removal of the actor from the post, Chauhan, best known for his portrayal of Yudhishtir in mega TV serial Mahabharat, alleged that the protests were “politically motivated” and whipped up by someone for his own personal interest.
With the strike by the students entering the fourth day today, the FTII students association was still awaiting the response from the Information and Broadcasting ministry.
Chauhan said he was against the protest by the students and regretted that questions were being raised about his capabilities without knowing him. The actor said he was willing to discuss the issue with the striking students.
‘Swaraj Abhiyan’ leader Yogendra Yadav, who was here to address a farmers’ meeting against the land bill, also visited the institute to support the students “just demands”.
former AAP leader said.”It is not mere a question of saffronisation, the real question is of degradation of all institutions where people without necessary qualification are being appointed,”
This is an assault on the finest institution of the country which is not in the interest of the nation, he said.
Yadav said the earlier government also did the same thing, but the present government has “hit the rock bottom.”
The FTII students’ association has alleged that Chauhan does not have “vision and stature” of his eminent predecessors to merit his posting by the government.
