Politics of Denial

A presentation and discussion with Fr. Lalit Tirkey, SJ, Director, Human Life Development and Research Centre, Darjeeling, India

To ensure all Indians have access to food, civil society groups lobbied the government intensively for more than a decade. This relentless pressure eventually resulted in passage of the 2013 National Food Security Act under which 800 million people or 67% of India's population could access food grain at a highly subsidized rate. At first it appeared as though the problem of food and hunger was solved once and for all. But since it was left to each Indian state to implement the Act, the public was left to the whims of state governments.

Fr. Lalit's presentation will share his knowledge of Catholic Social Teaching in action, particularly in reference to the people's struggle in the Darjeeling / West Bengal region, as they demand their rights and an end to the politics of denial, which deprive them of food and other legal entitlements.
