[rti_india] remembering Sri Shetty



We are organizing a Meeting in Lucknow on tomorrow, i.e., Sunday (07/02/2010) in remembrance of Sri Satish Shetty, the late RTI activist from Pune, who was so brutally murder by the land sharks. The program shall be held in Room No- 202 of the PGP Block (Bodhi-griha) of IIM Lucknow from 4 PM to 5 PM.
Satish Shetty (39) was well-known in and around Maharashtra for using the Right to Information (RTI) Act to expose many an irregular activity. This included many an unauthorized and illegal land-deals, building constructions and other such land-related nefarious deeds including setting up of restaurants and marriage halls in residential zones. His crusade had started some 15 years ago and lately he had started wielding the Right to Information to a large scale for this.
In addition, we are also going to remember and pay our respect to Sri S Manjunath, a post-graduate of this Institution who made supreme sacrifice for the values he so dearly held.
Along with RTI activists, some members of faculty and students from IIM Lucknow and those belonging to Manjunath Trust shall also be participating.
