New Delhi, April 9, 2017: A day after the Election Commission allotted its 200 candidates a common symbol ‘Whistle’, the fledgling Swaraj India party on Sunday launched a unique campaign asking the people to blow a whistle whenever they see anything wrong happening around them.

The party kick-started the “Blow the Whistle” campaign with a roadshow from Nangloi to Rithala in west Delhi ahead of the April 23 local civic body polls.

Swaraj India’s National President Yogendra Yadav said: “Swaraj India’s ‘Whistle’ symbol is that of a watchdog, a whistle of a watchman. This is the whistle that is blown to prevent theft and corruption… The whistle of Swaraj India will wake up the public and remove the corrupt and dishonest people from public offices.”

During the road show, Yadav appealed to the people of Delhi to blow the whistle whenever they see a politician making false promises, committing injustice, promoting corruption, lying or cheating people.

“With the ‘Blow The Whistle’ campaign of Swaraj India, the people of Delhi would express their intention to not tolerate drama, jumla or ghotala anymore,” Yadav said.

Yadav said that when Delhi continued to languish in dirt, the political parties were busy playing the blame game. While the people of Delhi were dying due to diseases such as dengue and chikangunya, politicians were busy indulging in extravagance and corrupt politics.

“Through the ‘Blow The Whistle’ campaign, the people of Delhi will take up the responsibility of being Delhi’s referee and watchdog. This city has unfortunately witnessed heights of corruption and limits of immorality in political parties,” Yadav added.

The party’s Chief National Spokesperson Anupam told IANS: “The Delhi government conspired to deny Swaraj India a common election symbol, the party found a new and unique way to ensure uniformity in its campaign. Now the people of Delhi will expose and dismiss the BJP, Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party.”

Swaraj India has full faith that the country’s capital, where the anti-corruption movement received unprecedented support, the city that revolted against the unfortunate Nirbhaya case, will now once again lead the country towards a new-age politics, Anupam said. (IANS)

New Delhi, May 10 : Even months after the release of “Pad Man”, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has continued his effort to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene. He has now lent support to a new campaign, bridging the gap between sanitary napkin users from 18 per cent to 82 per cent.

The #18to82 campaign is a part of the Niine Movement, aimed at raising awareness about menstrual hygiene and tackling the age-old stigma against menstruation across both genders and all age groups.

Akshay, who boldly tackled the issue in Hindi film “Pad Man”, took to social media to support the campaign with the message: “Only 18 per cent of Indian women use sanitary napkins v/s 82 per cent who use unhygienic means. I support the #NIINEMovement which breaks the taboos on periods. Help bridge the gap from #18to82.”

The actor said in a statement: “Open and unafraid conversations on menstruation are powerful as they help to breakdown taboos… Menstrual hygiene is an urgent issue that we must resolve in India.

“Together, we can ensure that every female has the right to manage her period safely and with dignity, and the Niine Movement can drive the social revolution that India needs to initiate change for an entire country. The empowerment of women is the empowerment of a nation.”

The Niine Movement is conceived by social entrepreneur Amar Tulsiyan.

Tulsiyan said: “We each have a responsibility to do what we can to tackle the taboos around menstruation and educate the next generation about periods in the right way. It is my hope that through the campaign, the Niine Movement becomes the spark that leads the way in bringing menstrual hygiene and dignity to every woman and girl in India.”

It will convene film personalities, academics, policymakers, government officials, activists, business stalwarts, NGOs and thought-leaders, including Akshay, to discuss the impact that stigma and taboos on menstruation have had on holding girls and women back for centuries.
