On 18th , 19th and 20th April 2017, Two workshops have been organized in connection on the Global Days of action on Military Spending (GDAMS)-2017. Three Budget experts, had also actively participated in our workshop and village rallies.We had discussed in detail about our Military Spending expenses on – Huge Forces, Missiles, Aircraft, Guns etc, Whereas, our Poverty alleviation activities expenses ( Millennium Development Goals etc.) are very low . And therefore, there is no need to heavy expenditure on Military Spending expenses in our country, India.


Our all taxes are going on Military expenses, Weapons, Warfare preparation, instead of to solve the drinking water, Health and food problems, Literacy etc., So we are living in very bad condition and we should put the pressure to our Government through Members of Parliament – MP, MLA and elected leaders, that they must deduct (reduce) the Budget of Military Spending and this money should be used in Community Development activities – MDG activities. Energy Crises, Creating of new jobs for youths or tackling poverty and climate change problems and other social issues. Priorities must be fixing in connection of our National Agenda or Development agenda.

Our GDAMS –Campaign and workshop news have also published in News papers as well as broadcast in local TV and Radio and due to this efforts, a very good environment have become formed in our region and discussion is continue in educated people , Youths and activist.
