BJP claims success of final phase of karseva Sunday, May 20, 2001

Ahmedabad May 19: The Bharatiya Janta Party claimed overwhelming success of the last phase of karseva conducted by the BJP workers in the quake-affected villages of the state between May 10 and 17. About 23,400 BJP workers took part in the karseva.

State BJP spokesman and general secretary Gordhan Jhadafiya, said that last phase of karseva was memorable both for the people and party karyakartas. “A kind of emotional bonding developed between the people and the karsevaks,” said Mr Jhadafiya.

He said a tea-stall owner offered tea free of cost to karsevaks in a village of Bhuj. He claimed that around 250 houses, which collapsed in quake, were rebuilt in Nagor area of Bhuj district by the workers.

Criticising the Congress for its “insensible approach, ”Mr Jhadafiya said the BJP tried to help the people while the Congress indulged in plain surveys and unnecessary criticism of rehabilitation agencies and sought to damage the image of state before national and international fraternity.

Quake survivors plan New York U.N. protest Saturday, May 19, 2001

ANJAR, May 19 - Survivors of an earthquake that devastated Gujarat in January plan to protest outside the headquarters of the United Nations to draw attention to what they say have been inadequate relief measures.

The protests will be spearheaded by Group 2001, an association of survivors from Anjar, one of the towns worst hit by the quake that killed more than 30,000 people.

The association, which earlier wrote letters in blood to President K.R. Narayanan, urging him to speed up relief and rehabilitation work, plans to write banners in blood conveying survivors' displeasure, Shyam Sunder, a member of the group, told Reuters on Saturday.

"A group of about 15 people will go to U.N. headquarters in New York and hold a protest march," he said. He said the group would travel to New York in June.

Sunder alleged that the state government's rehabilitation initiatives were inadequate and the only way to end the plight of thousands living in tents and other shelters was by attracting the attention of global aid agencies.

"The state government has failed to reduce the suffering of the people, let alone meeting their aspirations," he said.

Thousands of people in Anjar still live in tents, tin-roof shelters or out in the open as more than 14,000 houses were either damaged or destroyed in the quake.

Group 2001 is also planning a day-long strike in Anjar on June 3, the day Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee is scheduled to visit some of the quake-hit areas in Gujarat.
