Greetings I am Vivek Goyal, I welcome you to Radio Sangharsh. It seems the whole world is confused about fundamental rights. Democracy is shrinking in India and we saw a great example of it at Delhi international airport on 11 January when the government stopped Greenpeace India senior activist Priya Pillai to fly to London. Let’s listen what Priya says on it.
When I reached the airport, immigration officers stopped me and said you can’t leave country because your name is in the government database. I was going to London because Essar Energy is registered in London. It is same the company which got the second stage clearance for coal mining on basis of forged Gramsabha in Mahan, Madhya Pradesh. I was about to meet members of the parliament in London and talk about these human rights violation. It is a clear violation of human rights especially those who live in Mahan region. I oppose this move. We will continue this fight in any situation, whether the government or any corporate tries to stop us.
So Priya Pillai said it is act of human rights violation. Her passport was stamped with the word “offload” which will be problematic for her in future.
