Re: [mpisgmedia] Sunday Book Bazaar: NGO dharna against MCD

With Re; To

"We are writing to Police Commissioner to request
that police, instead of permitting arbitrary
NGO-dharnas against arbitrary MCD decision (or
arbitrary NDMC decisions elsewhere), directly prohibit
all arbitrary decisions in violation of national
policy (which Delhi Police co-authored through Jt
Commr Amod Kanth and which requires vending committee
to decide vending sites and police to be on vending
committee)."

Wrong end of stick, Police Commissioner can stop it
under Delhi Police Act if he chooses to. REALLY,
sometimes you "plannerly types" <grin> can't see the
wood for the trees!

Sarbajit

PS. Sorry for that humungous mail (330Kb) which is
still pending moderator approval. please delete it.
