PUCL to submit memo for repealing sedition provisions
"We are planning to submit the memorandum with signature of one million people to Parliament in the winter session," Sen said this while delivering the Loknath memorial lecture held here in memory of noted communist leader Loknath Choudhury.
Stating that several countries including Britain have already abolished the law, he said it was very easy for state governments to frame people opposing it with sedition.
Sen also drew attention to the demand for universalising the public distribution system.
"We want poor people to get all food items including rice, dal, oil and vegetable at subsidised prices," he said.
He said people of India were facing acute nutrition problem as they did not get adequate food.
