   social activist Aruna proposed Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill
National Advisory Council member and social activist Aruna Roy has allayed apprehensions about the proposed Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill 2011 claiming that it was aimed at shifting the onus to the government.

Social activist and Ramon Magsaysay award winner, Aruna Roy delivered the S.R. Sankaran Memorial Lecture in the city and said that people should come together on a common platform to critique the important policies and government decisions like Sankaran used to. She also released a book remembering Sankaran at Sundaraiah Vignana Kendram in memory of the IAS officer S.R. Sankaran who was also called “People’s IAS officer”.Ms. Roy told The Hindut hat there were 31 such legislations including the Seeds Bill and the one for constitution of Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India in the pipeline.

“The Bill on the Special Economic Zones was passed in two days along with the Right To Information Bill. But none of us looked at it. Legislations like these are making us non-citizens in our own country,” she said.

she said that it is important for people to become sensitive to issues and not ignore them just because they are not affected by them. She said that there was bloodshed for land reforms, but the meaning of land reforms has changed with the entry of SEZs that is resulting in the oppressed class losing out. She said that any civil society group should have the power to question and critique the policy decisions.
