Apart from this the organization fights for the health rights of our people. By the word health rights, Arogya Sena means public, social and political health rights. The latest battle which Aroyga Sena is fighting is against spurious milk and Khoya rackets. Since Aroyga Sena does not accept any government or foreign funding is not a NGO. It is a movement for social change. It is a forum for dynamic and dedicated youths of our country who genuinely want to serve our nation and wish to wedge a battle against injustice, in equality, poverty, corruption, fundamentalism, caste based politics, violence and terrorism within the frame work of Indian constitution and democracy.
