Re: [IAC#RG] Intellectual Meet at Kolkata on 16th April 2015

Kind Attn: Shri Manoj Arora

Dear Manojji

Thanks for your kind email which I have read carefully.

Since the India Against Corruption is a strictly non-political
movement, we cannot involve ourselves in political activity.

For the same reasons IAC would also not support any movement to
project local heroes merely for electoral gains or to appropriate
them. So we cannot support BJP's efforts to get Bharat Ratna for
Subhash Bose or by involving Netaji's family members..

Conversely, we hope that all political parties would fulsomely support
IAC's non-political "No Gandhi" campaign, where we have asked for
Gurudeb Rabindranath Tagore's iconic image to be on Rs.1,000 notes
instead of that of M.K.Gandhi.

IAC has also asked for images of Netaji Subhash Bose, Veer Savarkar,
Shaheed Bhagat Singh etc on Indian Banknotes and for the M.K.Gandhi
notes to be withdrawn from circulation as soon as possible and in the
national interest.

With best wishes

Sarbajit Roy
