Being a thematic expert we get to travel to the project areas. I happnen to visit Bhubnashwar and Kolkata for oranising a state level consultation on the economic contribution of urban poor in the city. The consultation are example where the issue of urban poor are being raised and they are advocating for the issues to be included in the political parties manifesto.
The very idea of 'participation' of people in the making of the political parties manifesto is good a good learning and further imposes the importance of participation in the things that are related to peoples development.
You can also share some of your thoughts.
As learning is a mutual thing.
