Aawaaz a city based NGO organised a protest at roundabout of sector 18/7 in solidarity with Anna’s fast from 27th to 29th dec. The members of Aawaaz marked their protest in the morning but the protest was curved by the police officials as they opposed the protest by arresting and putting 24 members of Aawaaz behind the bars. The members were agitated by this act of administration which clearly signifies that the voice raised against corruption is suppressed
Gaurav Goel member of Aawaaz said that the arrest is not justified as in the democracy. We have a right to protest and this protest is voice of nation. We will fight till Govt pay heed to our voice.
Varun Giri another member of Aawaaz expressed his annoyance and said that we were protesting peacefully in solidarity with Anna ji and the police act is totally uncalled for.
Kuldeep, Anshuman Ashutosh member said that we will continue to raise our voice against corruption till the Jan Lokpal bill is passed. Govt. cannot act voluntarily and pay a deaf ear to the Nation’s voice. The arrest of peaceful protesters is not acceptable on legal/moral grounds says they.
Later in the evening the members of Aawaaz after their release, organised a candle light march which started from sec 19 police station and marched till sec 18/7 roundabout. The vigil was joined by people of tricity in large number on their way
