Subject: Urgent: update on bandhyali 25th Nov

Dear Friends,

We have already shared with you the exorbitant price for the land that JDA is demanding from us that is Rs. 78, 24, 650/- per Bigha. We wrote a letter to JDA commissioner requesting reconsideration of rates in the light of the court order dated 03/05/06, which is totally ignored. We also sent them a legal notice for the same. JDA didn’t respond to it as well.

We filed two petitions in the high court, one for contempt, as the court order dated 03/05/06 is not implemented in its spirit, and other for discrimination against Bandhyali School as the price demanded from Digantar is 39 times of what is being charged from Mahima Shiksha Samiti. But the Judge is on leave and no hearing of the petitions could be held till date. The next date for hearing is 27th Nov.

21st was the last day of the status quo granted by the court. Which means the JDA can physically remove the school any time. It is quite possible that they may come to demolish school today or tomorrow (on Sunday). Our petition is coming for hearing on Monday (27th Nov.) and we hope to get the status quo extended. We tried to meet the JDA commissioner but were unable to do so. We are also trying to propagate the case among media persons and planning to distribute pamphlets among the public. School teachers and the community are on alert and hope that JDA will not do anything rash, and if it does, we will certainly be peaceful and keep the children out of action; but will unlikely to allow physical removal of the school. We hope that you all will be present there for protest and support us. We will keep informing you about the status.

Right now we got the information that they may come tomorrow morning for forced eviction and demolition of the school.

With regards

Navneet, Vishwambhar
