Son of a Dhule farmer who died after consuming poison at Mantralaya seeking compensation for his land warned Friday that he too would commit suicide if three Maharashtra ministers who 'broke' their promise to the family did not quit.
On January 22, Dharma Patil (84) consumed poison on the premises of the state secretariat Mantralaya here, demanding adequate compensation for his land which had been acquired by the government for a solar power project.
After Dharma Patil's death, ministers Girish Mahajan and Jaykumar Rawal had assured that action would be taken against those found guilty, Narendra said in his December 6 letter.
Chandrashekhar Bavankule, another minister, too had given an assurance in writing, and yet no justice was done to the family, he alleged.
"In the event of the ministers not resigning...then you (Fadnavis) should accept moral responsibility and resign," Narendra wrote.
"Immediate action must be taken....Or else, I will have no option but to commit suicide," the letter said.
