Citizens' voice is growing feeble - Radheshyam Jadhv

Public participation that dictates the success of development projects is shrinking in Pune. Unlike the 1990s, civic activism is now restricted to a few non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which again work in a limited way and the people whom these projects affect the most, are mostly missing, say observers.

This, at a time when a people's movement is most wanted, especially since the city has a heap of issues like poor public transport, water supply, lack of infrastructure and other development issues.
