Ramnath (Alibaug) : “Many brave warriors were born in this land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to protect the identity of Raigad; but how could people of Raigad be so indifferent and cool about this matter ? If identity of Chhatrapati is to be protected, the citizens should come forward from all villages, through the medium of ‘Gou-raksha Samiti’, for protection of cows. Tell the Government administration of this district firmly that those, who demolish slaughter-house, will only get power in Raigad. I will not leave Raigad till Morba slaughter-house is demolished,” stated Jain-Muni Pujya Vinamrasagarji Maharaj warning the Government of continuing this agitation till demolition of slaughter-house at Morba. He addressed a huge gathering of 25,000 people. Shiv Sena MP, Anant Gite, MLA from Mahad, Shri. Bharat sheth Gogavale, Shiv Sena Raigad District – President, Shri. Baban dada Patil, BJP’s Shri. Atul Bhatkhalkar, its Raigad District – President, Shri. Balasaheb Patil, ‘Morba slaughter-house Demolition Committee’s President, Shri. Vijayraj ji Khule, office – bearer, Shri. Anil Chopra and VHP’s Konkan regional President, advocate Deepak Gaikwad shared the dais with Maharaj.
Shri. Khule said on the occasion, “The stay order passed by District Collector and District Superintendent is only a short impediment; but the issue will be considered as ended only after demolition of slaughter-house. Guardian Minister, Sunil Tatkare has today told the reporters that slaughter-house would not be allowed to come up; but if he had made the same statement 8 days back, so much of manpower and money spent for organizing this protest march, could have been saved.
Advocate Deepak Gaikwad said that the company constructing slaughter-house has even deceived the Government. The Administration has done its job honestly; but the slaughter house has come up due to pressurization tactics used by politicians. There was a need to take prompt action against the slaughter-house by demolishing the same.
District Administration issues notice to slaughter-house under Section 45 !
The District Administration took note of agitation against Morba slaughter-house issuing a notice to this slaughter-house under Section 45; but this notice was not accepted; therefore, the Regional officer stuck its copy on the wall of slaughter-house doing ‘Panchanama’. The slaughter-house will have to present its side by 18th February.
