Representatives of more than 30 civil groups met on March 11 and decided to work together to bring back the narrative of the elections on real issues that the country is facing.
 
They unanimously decided that coordinated action will be held at at least 1000 places across the county on March 23, the day of martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. This may take different forms like public meetings, rallies, march, human chains, etc. “Irrespective of the form, it must involve a ceremony to garland or commemorate Bhagat Singh or other martyrs. This can be done at a place hosting the statue of the martyr(s) or at any other symbolic public place. Other icons may also be honoured during this event,” a message shared by the group said.
 
A common banner “Desh Mera, Vote Mera, Mudda Mera” will be used by all participant organisations. A common logo will be designed and sent by the central team for this purpose. The central team will also share some slogans, parcha or other publicity material and each organisation will be free to improvise or evolve their own communication for this purpose. The central team will also share some digital posters that can be used for the social media campaigns, templates for press invitation, and press release. A detailed SOP will be shared with all participating organisations.
 
“Interested organisation are requested to confirm their participation and also mention the number of places on which they will hold the event. They are also requested to designate a PoC for their organisation to make the coordination smoother,” they said.
