[Update 2015] Strengthening the Sangathan : Building democracy within

13 Dec

In its quest to be democratic and understand the larger picture of the work we do, the sangathan has regular meetings, workshops et al. As part of this commitment the JJSS working committee and executive committee meet on every Ambedkar Jayanti (14th April). This year Rahul Bannerjee of the Khedut Mazdoor Chetna Sangathan, visited our sangathan. He connected our local struggles to the exploitative structure of World Bank, IMF and WTO, emphasising the need to engage with the karyapalika (executive), nyaypalika (judiciary) and vidhanpalika (legislature). He also got a commitment from the executive committee that we will have a board at the centre and use it for further trainings. We have kept the commitment so far!

The JJSS elected its new working committee and General Secretary at its General Body Meeting on 1st May, 2015 which was attended by around ten thousand people. Ranjit Paswan was elected the General Secretary. He replaced Kamayani Swami. A new fifteen member working committee was also elected.
