I appreciate your spirit towards making things better, especially the Public Institutions.Public service in our country is too neglected and most suffer silently, depressed and resigned to the fate.Everyone is not like that.Like you they raise their voice when they believe that things could be better and we deserve better services.It is heartening to know that some well-wishers of the society like you have been fighting legal and media battles for the greater common cause in the larger interest of the society.In fact this should be the principal duty of every Indian.A beautiful house in a dirty environment, a beautiful family in a dirty society does not make any basic sense at all.You may like to join them in their effective endeavour towards ensuring a better and better society.

To mobilise the opinion for making executive, legistature and judiciary people friendly, accountable and  transparent and most effective for the benefit of the people.

To use every wing of the administration i.e. executive(government), legislature(Parliament &

Assemblies) and Judiciary(courts) for solving the day to day and longterm problems.

To oversee the proper utilization of national resources and state funds and stop its misuse


1.       Tinaikar Report  : The Maharashtra Govt. had appointed  a committee under the chairmanship of Shri S.S.Tinaikar, the  former Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation(BMC) Commissioner  on the corruption in BMC. Though the report was submitted  to the government in 2001, the government didn't publish the  same for public. Manch filed the PIL(Public Interest Litigation)  in the Bombay High Court against the government for publishing  the same which is pending.

2.      Mismanagement and  corruption in Charity Commissioners Office: The  Petition filed relying merely on press repoprts, was dismissed.

3.      Corruption in BMC's  road and building construction & maintenance dept. as  well as accounts dept. Petition filed but dismissed.

6.      Demolition of illegal  religious structures: Thousands  of illegal temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches & squares  have mushroomed on public and private properties especially  on roads and footpaths causing noise, traffic problems and  communal disharmony at times. The Petition filed and the court  was pleased to ask BMC to demolish such structures and file  the report before the court. Demolition has commenced in full  swing. Over one thousand illegal places of worship demolished  by BMC.

7.      MLA Gymkhana on  a Cuffe Parade Playground: The Petition  filed against construction of exclusive Gymkhana mostly from  State fund for MLAs, MPs and IAS officers. Government amended  The Maharashtra Legislature Members' Salaries and Allowances  Act(Bom.XLIX of 1956 to preempt the petition. Manch challenged  the Act. Petition pending for hearing.

8.      Dereservation of  plot reserved for Jijamata Zoo expansion: A  15 acre plot in the heart of the Mumbai City, leased by govt.  to Mafatlal Industries for setting up and running a textile  mill, since closed down, reserved for zoo extension was proposed  for derservation by government in favour of Mafatlals for  commercial development. Manch issued notice in May 2002 to  government that if government dereserved the same, it would  challenge the action in the Bombay High Court. Government  has not proceded further in the matter since then but suddenly  decided to deserve half of 15 acres and hand over to Mafatlals.  The Manch filed the PIL against the Government and Mafatlals  on 3rd March 2004.

10.      J.J.Hospital Doctors  Sheltering Criminal: The doctors  in a nexus with criminals admit them under fake names and  facilitate them to flee or obtain bails under the blessing  of the ministers and top officials. Manch filed the petition  to punish such doctors named in two inquiry reports. Earlier  one committee could not work at all. The last and 4th enquiry  report accepted and endorsed by the CM was promised by the  govt. for action and will be submitted to the Court, with  a copy to the Manch before 22-3-2004. Court's final order  will follow soon.

11.      Religious rituals  causing water pollution:

12.      Unpaid and unlicensed  advertisements dotting Mumbai streets: Banners,  signboards, cards and

hoardings put up by the organizers of religious and political  congregations, congratulatory displays by politicians' sycophants  on leaders birthdays and elections are mostly unpaid and unlicensed  which cause crores of rupees revenue loss to BMC. Manch filed  a writ and the court ordered BMC and the Government to remove  them forthwith and award the penalty and punishment under  the law to the offenders. The Court finally ordered the BMC  and the Government on 25th Feb. 2004 to enforce the law strictly  against the illegal display of such advertisements.

14.      Petition against  a Canadian faith healer:

15.      Janhit Manch sent notices  to the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister objecting against  over Rs.200 crores subsidy annually given to Haj pilgrims  and warned that if the same was not stopped, Manch would go  to court. The details of financial support given to the followers  of other religions was also sought and further that the state  fund could not be misused for religious purposes in a secular  country-like ours, the constitution of which forbid such help  to religious outfits.

16.      Come elections and  the newspapers and TV channels have bonanza of state advertisements  claiming the big achievements, right or wrong, spending hundreds  of crore of rupees state fund. The Manch filed the writ petition  in the Bombay High Court in February 2004 against the Union  Government as well as Maharashtra Government for stopping  such blatant misuse of funds. Court issued notices to the  said governments to file their affidavits in the matter.
