Press Invitation

Dear Media Friends,

Greetings !



We would like to invite you to a press briefing on our consultations with the Finance Minister on the Budget on January 17, 2012.



Every year the Union Budget is presented by the Honourable Finance Minister in the parliament after discussion with various sectors but more importantly with the Corporates and their bodies and associations like FICCI, CII and others. We believe that the Budget is only furthering the agenda of the neo liberal reforms and is continually moving away from its social responsibility, which in turn is perpetuating the inequality.



As social movements we have been making suggestions to the government on various issues of governance and law. It is in the same spirit that we are now engaging with the Budget to make it more participatory and addressing the real needs of the other India, which remains neglected and under privileged.


The press conference will be addressed by :


Medha Patkar and Sandeep Pandey, National Conveners, National Alliance of People's Movements

Swami Agnivesh, Bandhua Mukti Morcha

Prof. Arun Kumar, Jawahalal Nehru University

Shri Roshan Lal Agarwal, Thinker



Please do join !



Warm Regards,





Madhuresh Kumar
