Letter to the Governor and the NHRC

The Chairman, National Human Rights Commission,

Manav Adhikar Bhavan, ‘C’ Block, GPO Complex, INA, Delhi

 

Respected Sir,

Please find herewith a copy of letter addressed by PUCL, Gujarat Unit, to H.E. the Governor of Gujarat, regarding non-appointment of top functionaries to head the Gujarat State Human Rights Commission.

Sir, you must have noticed during your recent visit to Ahmedabad, glaring situation of State Human Rights Commission without the key functionaries such as the Chairman or the Registrar.

In such a state of affairs, we are afraid that the purpose or aim of setting up of State Human Rights Commission will be defeated. There will not be proper monitoring for defending or upholding human rights and civil liberties without full-fledged functioning of the State Body.

In the circumstances, we request you to kindly mediate in this matter and impress upon the concerned to ensure early appointment to the crucial posts of Chairman and the Registrar of the State HRC in Gujarat.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Sd./-

Gautam Thaker, General Secretary, PUCL (Gujarat)

Respected Kohlijee,

Subject: Gujarat State Human Rights Commission

Gujarat State Human Rights Commission is functioning in Gujarat which contributes its mite for preservation of people’s Human Rights and the Civil Liberties.

But you will be surprised to note that for over last five months, no one has been appointed as the Chairman of the State Human Rights Commission. For non-appointment of the post of Chairman, concerned citizens experience delay in securing justice or relief in the event of violations of human rights and civil liberties. Moreover, posts of other members of the Commission are lying vacant. More importantly, the crucial post of the Registrar has also not been filled up so far. During recent visit of the N.H.R.C. it had also felt surprised to know about such a state of affairs.

Hence, it is humbly requested that appropriate directions may be issued to fill up all these posts and especially that of the Chairman and the Registrar of the State Human Rights Commission on an urgent basis.

We hope that you will take personal interest in this important matter and cause necessary appointments to be made as requested above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Sd./-

Gautam Thaker, General Secretary, PUCL (Gujarat)
