WHO WE ARE​

Lokayat is a fast growing self-funded group of socialist activists based in Pune. We create awareness and organize common people, especially students and youth, on a wide range of issues, including the serious crisis facing Indian society due to the twin dangers of fascism and globalization, the deepening economic crisis, the growing communal divide, caste inequality and gender inequality, the worsening environmental crisis that is threatening the very survival of life on Earth etc.
All our expenses are met through contributions by our activists who contribute every month from their salaries. For bigger programs, we raise funds from our well-wishers across the country.
We organize a wide range of programs on streets, in slums, in schools & colleges and just about any busy corners all across the city.
With the growth of fascist forces in the country, followed by the BJP coming to power in 2014 at the Centre, we decided to align with the Janat Dal (Secular) in an attempt to bring progressive forces together to fight the growing crisis gripping Indian society and politics. We are also playing a key role in the initiative launched by Dr G.G. Parekh, Bhai Vaidya, Dr Sunilam and others to bring together socialist/left/progressive groups under the banner of 'We the Socialist Institutions'.

The Employment Crisis

Many arguments are given to justify unemployment- increasing population, unwillingness of the people to work or even affirmative action. However, if full employment is possible in times of war, why cannot we have it always?
