Struggle of three years resulted in allotment of six houses to Sansis.
The Sansi basti near Maninagar was last demolished before two months. As a result of modernising the city 191 families living here become homeless since last three years. Budhan theatre took the responsibility to resettled them, as soon as possible.
Daxin Bajrange a active member of Budhan theatre is the person who took the challenge to resettle the residents of this ghetto. It took almost three years to daxin to sensitse some of the officers in Ahmedabad Municiple corporation. "It is really very hard to sensitise the local authorities, but we go on doing our work, we took help of many concerned officers and activists." says Daxin.
The Ahmedabad Municiple corporation had announced that they will give houses to six families out of 191 families. "Most of the families have election card and ration card. But these houses are been provided to only those families who had a Jhuppatpatti identity card(Slum identity card), issued by Indira Gandhi Government in 1976." Says Daxin. Rest of the families were also living with these people but they were not able to take care of this document. I lost it(slum identity card) when the municipality came here for encroachment first time befor three years." says Mukesh sansi, a resident of this area.
"udhan theatre will go on doing its work and will try to provide the rest of the families too with some alternate piece of land." says daxin.
