Friday, 14 September 2018 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

On the fourth day of the Go Rurban camp, the prominent Gandhian activist Rajagopal PV interacted with the participants in the first half.

He spoke about nonviolence as a means to the people's movement in India and how Ekta Parishad made a constant dialogue with government and other stakeholders during the struggle. He shared that in 2007, then in 2012 and now in 2018, 25,000 landless people will march from Gwalior to Delhi.

Speaking about the upcoming march 'Jan Andolan 2018', he said that all the demonstrators will start meeting soon in Gwalior and that on October 2 we will start the march. He also spoke about the importance of the participation of urban youth in these movements and how they can learn from Tribes of India.

Responding to one of the questions from Go Rurban participant, he told how the current educational system is weakening the thinking capacity of young people in India. He congratulates all the camp participants for being part of this initiative and opening their hearts and minds to learn some of the problems facing by a large population in our country.

The young people marched to learn the importance of Padyatra and what it means to be a padyatri. The participants chanted slogans such as ‘Bhook Ki Jung Mai, Hum Sab Sang Mai’ Jal, Jungle aur Zameen, Yeh Ho Janta K Adheen' and songs ‘Shanti K Sipahi Dekho Gaaon Gaaon Jaa Rahe’, ‘Jai Jagat Pukaare Jaa’.

Later, participants did a fun exercise to energize the enthusiasm. Garry, an instructor told them about Jai Jagat 2020 from New Delhi to Geneva. The fifth Go Rurban camp with 26 participants from seven states will conclude on September 14.
