The Gujarat MPs meet the PM and the PMO issues an official statement. While the affected people and the protestors patiently wait at Jantar Mantar for the more than 2 weeks to seek a meeting or a clear statement from the PMO---never mind that some of them are on a hunger strike (some for more than 2 weeks) and some have travelled on foot more than 800 km and more than that never mind that they are the ones at the wrong end of government policies. (Details of the protests are here and here).
While that is on, the media is firmly stuck in its belief of celebrity market-value. The media blitz after Aamir Khan visited the protest sites had several articles about the new avatar of the actor---whatever happened to the movement and their issues.
Two images showing possible contrasting media interest!
While that happens, Mr. Modi is on a 51-hour fast and NBA office is ransacked.
The NBA press release regarding the attack on their office and Soz's statement that the SC will decide the issue and that dam construction and rehab should be done simultaneously is here.
Fast by Medha, Bhawatiben and Jamsinghbai is in the 19th day.
