RTI activist Anil Galgali has donated Rs 11,000 prize amount received as a token of appreciation for his contribution to the field of RTI to Naam Foundation an institution headed by leading actor Nana Patekar and Makrand Anaspure. They are collecting funds for providing relief to drought hit farmers in the state. Sajag Nagrik Manch (Alert Citizens Forum) Pune had organised confederation of Alert Citizen Right to Information Award at the BMCC road in the IMDR. The said award was conferred upon Senior Journalist and RTI activist Anil Galgali for his immense contribution in the field.
“RTI activists both as individual or at groups level are soon emerging as our country’s strength. Their works should be spread across the country. Pune has emerged as the city of having maximum activists using the Right to Information Act (RTI) in the country. Other cities should take a cue from Pune,” said Nikhil Dey a senior RTI activist.
“Today the entire country is suddenly in the mood of serving the nation. But people like us refrain from such activities. This should be stopped somewhere now. Whilst following up with various cases for RTI, even today we have to undergo several hardships. Nothing is easy. But we haven’t stopped. We continue to serve our country through such works,” said Anil Galgali.
