Rally and Dharna by Slum Dwellers Against Disconnection of Electricity
at Jantar Mantar at 1.00 pm on Wednesday, 22nd December 2004


Dear friends,

Electricity connections of more than 10 thousand slum dwellers of
Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar JJ camp were disconnected by NDPL about
a month ago. Similarly, electricity connections of more than 25
thousand citizens of Haiderpur JJ clusters were suddenly disconnected
by the same NDPL Company on 7th December. Before disconnecting, NDPL
gave no notice to the connection holders. Since the privatisation of
electricity distribution in Delhi, the slum dwellers have been forced
to arbitrary decisions and disconnections. All political parties have
hand in gloves and hence no one comes in support of these poor people.

As you may know that the National Conference of Dalit Organisations
(NACDOR) has always been opposed to the privatisation of basic
services such as Electricity, water, health, sanitation, education and
other services.

To press for reconnection of electricity in the slums of Delhi and to
oppose the privatisation of basic services, the National Conference of
Dalit Organisations (NACDOR) had decided to launch an agitation on
Wednesday 22nd December by holding a Rally and Dharna at Jantar Mantar
at 1.00 pm.

The NACDOR and various other organisations working in the Delhi's slum
will give a memorandum to the Prime Minister Mr. Man Mohan Singh, UPA
Chairperson Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, and the Delhi's Chief Minister Mrs.
Sheila Dixit. We request your support and solidarity in this struggle.

To express your solidarity, kindly join us at Jantar Mantar at 1.00 pm
on Wednesday 22nd December 2004.


We request you to kindly circulate this among your friends & the
people whom you feel it shall go.

With warm regards,



Ashok Bharti

National Coordinator
