Officials harass Dang district panchayat president over land issue, threaten to commit suicide
Saputara: Despite the BJP rule at the Center and in the state, in Dang district, many questions have been raised as BJP leaders are fed up with the authorities and threatening to picket and commit suicide. Former MLA of Dang district and president of Dang district panchayat Mangal Gavit has gone on a hunger strike in his land near Sakarpatal village and threatened to commit suicide. He was repeatedly harassed by Yanken-type harassment over land issues by Southern Forest Department officials.
Former Congress MLA Mangal Gavit had earlier resigned and assumed saffron. After winning the election from the Koshimada district panchayat seat of the district panchayat, Mangal Gavit Dang is sitting as the president of the district panchayat. Land is located on the banks of river Ambika near Sakarpatal village of Mangal Gavit. As half of the land in this land is applicable to the South Forest Department, the Forest Department team measured the land and stopped the excavation and also imposed a fine of Rs 15,750 on the son of the District Panchayat President. The diocese is in a frenzy as the leveling of Mars Gavit continues in the land and the South Forest Department officials are threatening to commit suicide by sitting on a dharna, which is frequently harassed in a Yanken-like manner on the land issue. The gigantic BJP leader has threatened to commit suicide, so the message he wants to convey to the authorities, including the public, does not sit well with the people.
Fasting Mars Gavit’s blood pressure and sugar level increased
In this regard, Mangal Gavit has accused the Forest Department official of harassing him even after taking punitive action for allegedly occupying the land. Although I have been occupying this land for 35 years, the forest department has been harassing me for eight months on this land issue. And if the decision is not made immediately, I will commit suicide. Meanwhile, a team of doctors treated Mangal Gavit’s blood pressure and blood sugar level.
The investigation of this land matter has been handed over to SubDFO.
In this regard, DCF of South Dang Forest Department Nilesh Pandya said that the president of Dang district panchayat who is sitting on death row at the place of land. At that place today I visited Mangal Gavit and listened to his presentation. The investigation into the land issue is currently being handed over to the SubDFO.
Forest department personnel fled as the president threatened self-immolation
The survey was carried out today by the Southern Forest Department without any notice, which led to Mangal Gavit questioning the officer and forest workers fleeing the scene, threatening to commit suicide if they were falsely harassed. Mangal Gavit has asked to do a joint survey and fast till death till justice is done. BJP office-bearers, including Dang MLA Vijay Patel, rushed to the spot to seek justice for Mangal Gavit, who has been on a death fast for seven hours.
