Treading a different path

A 45-day yatra comprising activists from 30 NGOs was flagged off from Ahmedabad on January 30. The crusaders hope to mobilise public opinion on developmental issues. They also propose to form a non-patty political force that can apply pressure on political parties and candidates in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The group forms the core of the National Alliance of People's Movements which opposes developmental efforts that encourage displacement and disparity. The yatra, basically a travelling compaign, will conclude at Wardha, Maharashtra in March, 1996.
