Son of Dhule farmer demands sacking of ministers for 'breaking

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Son of a farmer who died after consuming poison at seeking compensation for his land warned Friday that he too would commit suicide if three ministers who 'broke' their promise to the family did not quit.

On January 22, (84) consumed poison on the premises of the state secretariat here, demanding adequate compensation for his land which had been acquired by the government for a solar power project.

Patil's son said Friday that he has written to Chief and asked him to sack three of his ministers if they themselves did not quit.

If they did not step down, the chief himself should resign, said, warning that he would jump off a mobile tower otherwise.

After Dharma Patil's death, ministers Girish Mahajan and Jaykumar Rawal had assured that action would be taken against those found guilty, 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.
