An answer to allegations by the biased Media

In response to article in sakal dated 13th Jan 2013, Dr Shreerang Arvind Godbole has written this article to clarify on what was actually said by RSS chief and how media distorts its version based on agenda. Cityblog publishes the same as a forum for all to express their view. We invite more such dialogue on active issues in city and country. While Cityblog condemns the misogynist mindsets but also feels media should be unbiased. We also understand sensitive nature of Delhi case and feel all culprits be punished in fast and appropriate manner. Also we need to modify legal system and mainly our thought processes which treats woman as commodity.  Here is what Dr  Shreerang Arvind Godbole writes :

 Criticism of Sarsanghchalak unwarranted and unjustified

Hemant Desai does not apparently feel the need to verify his sources else he would not made wild allegations against Sarsanghchalak Mohanji Bhagwat in his ‘Sakal’ article (13 Jan 2013).  He has neatly placed the Sarsanghchalak in the company of Akbaruddin Owaisi, Gopal Kanda and Anis ur-Rehman.  Considering the length and breadth of his piece and the venom therein, it is clear that the Sarsanghchalak is his special target.

Appeal from National Society for Clean Cities

We wish you all a Very Happy New Year and a Very Clean & Green Pune!!

Hi there all,

A year back all Mohalla Committees had organised meetings with candidates standing for elections as PMC Corporators. You had interviewed them, listened to their plans and most importantly, presented them with a Charter of Demands for your Ward, which all the candidates signed. We Punekars are doing what other cities are still thinking of doing..

On March 12, 2013 it will be exactly One year since your Corporators got elected. Now is the time to assess both, her and him, on what they have done in their First year in office and particularly on action taken on the issues raised by you in the signed Charter of Demands..
