Starting on 26 November on occasion of Indian Constitution Day, through 10 December on occasion of Human Rights Day – we carried out our Hum Sanvidhanvadi (हम संविधानवादि) campaign with autorickshaw drivers at 6 spots across Ambernath, Badlapur, Kalyan and Dombivali.
This year we introduced another creative aspect – plates with the words: “I am Committed to the Indian Constitution’s Values” (मी कटिबद्ध आहे भारतीय संविधानाच्या मूल्यांच्या प्रति) were presented to the auto drivers which they stuck onto their dashboards.
The response was much more positive than even expected. Many auto drivers themselves approached requesting for the plates, and many brought their friends to the youth team for the same.
Like our recent campaigns since many months, this was an entirely youth-led campaign – with maximum young women from Dalit, NT-DNT communities. They held discussions about how Auto drivers are important stakeholders and upholders of the Indian Constitution, while distributing the plates.
