During the two hour meeting the following was discussed:


  1. Revisting the slow down of the project. It was understood that there was no loss of intrest that had slowed down the project but for some personal problems. The project came to life with the meeting.
  2. Forming of Managing comittee. It was thought of more contributing praja members to come forward to contribute in moving the project up and with speed. In order to the same a managing comittee should be formed. This social movement cannot depend on one individual or a hand full of people.
  3. Volunteers to put in action The design of the Safe passage write up, some to write for the news papers some photographs and so on.
  4. Selling the idea of social responsibility. While the advertisement of tata tea, and idea mobile have displayed astounding social responsibility of luring the citizen to participate either to bring government or to decide what the govet. should do. We at praja should take this example and talk to sponsor on this platform
  5. Schedule of the meeting. All praja member should attend fortnightly meeting, and most importantly those who have volunteered to participate in safe passage. Some of the learnings that have got by others can be of great help in pulling this forward
  6. Involve more citizen charters We may not be the first, let us discuss with some known citizen charters to involve them and find the possibility of their support.

Action plan:

  1. On the above ground the managing comittee right now with 3 people will meet possible sponsor's of the signature collection event.
  2. Collection of signature
  3. Meeting for gaining moment to meet concerned authorities
  4. Formulate the follow up plan.
