Malegaon: Under the garb of High Court order police, SRP mobilised massive force and unleashed reign of terror on the peaceful agitators.


The agitators mostly women and children (initially about 250 to 300) started assembling as per the routine at Anandnagar, Talavali where the agitators have been blocking the garbage trucks for the past 12 days, says Yuva Bharat Naitonal Convenor Shahsi Sonawane.


When the police forcefully started taking the garbage trucks, the women and children immediately blocked the road and slept on the road and gave slogans -  "Dumping Ground Hatao Gaon Bachao !"  the agitators were only giving slogan and had blocked the road. The police were supposed to arrest the peaceful agitators but instead of doing that the gents police immediately started lathi charge indiscriminately on the women. The gents police ruthlessly and shamelessly starting beating the old women and small children. The details are given below. The police not only stop with this they fired many teargas shells due to which many people got affected, Shashi says.


The lathi charge was so indiscriminate that even old women, children were not spared. Many women have got head injuries.


Leading activists, James Correa, Sister Clara, Sister Mersina, Sister Jokina, Sister Christina, Fr. Leslie Malya, Fr. Bona Parriera, Ronnie Correa, Shashi Sonawane, William, Wilson, Walter Parreira and others were brutally beaten up.


Thousands of villagers are now on road at Anandnagar - Talavli. Justice Kolse-Patil who was on his way to visit the agitators was blocked at Dongri village where he has sat on Dharna in protest, says Shashi.


"We condemn the brutality of the police administration. We condemn the unjust approach of the administration of giving protection to the garbage trucks and brutally the peaceful villagers whose only genuine demand is to shift the dumping ground. This is probably for the first time in our history that the State authoritites are bent upon beating the citizens brutally inorder to send the garbage trucks in the dumping ground. This is not only unjust but outright violation of the agitators to protest peacefully. Even if it is Court Order, the villagers have every right to protest it. This is a gross violation of the fundamental rights of the people", says Shashi.


Shashi demands that -the solid waste management project (Hanjar Biotech pvt. Ltd.,) of the Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation should be completely stopped, scrapped and shifted permanently from the Uttan Dhavagi hill top. All the activists (about 15-16) should be immediately released unconditionally. The officers who lathi charged and fired teargas on the innocent and peaceful women, children and agitators should be suspended immediately and a judicial enquiry should be appointed on the same.


"Unless and until these demands are not accepted by the authorities, we the agitators have decided to not get out of the road", he says.
