A Meeting of ‘Release Dr. Binayak Sen Committee, Pune’ was held on 16th June, 2009 following the Supreme Directive to release Dr. Binayak Sen on Bail forthwith.
The Meeting after due deliberation arrived at the following Decisions:
1.To dissolve the existing Committee And to rename it as ‘The Committee For The Defense Of Democratic Rights In Chhattisgarh’. It may be remembered that Dr. Binayak Sen has not yet been released unconditionally. Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act (CSPSA) which is a highly repressive act is in force in the state today. ‘Salwa Judum’ campaign is still being conducted mercilessly.
2.To extend all practicable cooperation to those who will continue to struggle for the defense of Democratic Rights in Chhattisgarh and elsewhere in India.
3.To invite Adv. Sudha Bharadwaj and/or Mr. Himanshu, and Dr. Binayak Sen if possible to address a public meeting in Pune as early as possible (end of July or 1st week of August at the latest.)
