Token Strike At Travancore Devaswom Board

Programme Notice

Yogakshemasabha is organising a one day token hunger strike ( soochana nirahara sathyagraham) in front of Travancore Devaswom Board HQ @ Trivandrum on 29th Wednesday. The action seeks remedy for several anomalies thrust upon by the board on priests in temples under its administration. You may remember about the "dharna" conducted in front of Secretariat on July 7th, thus the issue was brought to serious attention of Government. As a result of constant follow-up actions (read - lobbying), a consensus has reached in all Departments and political parties concerned with affairs of Devaswom that our demands are simply just and long pending.

Leaders of all major political parties and Hindu movements have agreed to be present on the strike venue. Final preparations are in full swing. The sabha leadership is fully confident to pull off the agitation to a highly successful end. We expect a gathering of 2500 members.
On behalf of Hon Sabha President, the organising committee invites one and all members of our brotherhood to be present at the gates of TDB Head Quarters at 9:00 am on 29th Dec. 2010.
