While the Supreme Court has issued notices to states and union territories seeking their views on legalising passive euthanasia, the families of comatose patients Shruti, Najma and Amit refuse to even discuss the issue. They think they are being unjust to their loved ones
MUMBAI ~ Raj Thackeray, the chief of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), led a band of party men on 12 February to toll booths across Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane demanding that the state stop collecting toll from motorists across the state. His agitation, called off a few hours after it started, made a lot of noise but achieved little. Though the MNS chief, who was detained by the Navi Mumbai Police and let off later, had declared that the agitation was for the people, the inconvenience caused to motorists had tempers running high, traffic jams and vandalism.
