TO WHOM SO EVER CONCERNED!!!
On behalf of all my team members and the entire Office bearers of The National RTI Forum, we offer our sincere , condolences to one and all the RTI Activists who have met an untimely departure from our nation.
May their families be blessed with more strength and courage to face this world without their beloved members.... who have been murdered or done away through mysterious circumstances or accidents etc.,of which facts and figures throw light on their deeds of exposure to many culprits , thieves and criminals around India ...
Hope and pray that all the RTIs will unite under this great and effective Umbrella , so that we The National R T I Forum , be stronger in numbers and our voices heard and felt through out Our Mother Land , no matter how far each one of us may be, even if we happen to be NRI/NRE/PIOs, we are Indians and that remains the most binding material where we in The National forum can make the changes, and stop injustice to all...very soon, when untied in one strong movement.
