GHAR BACHAO GHAR BANAO ANDOLAN
- · Vilasrao does it again, another day, another scam.
- · Land meant for housing the dishoused grabbed by the Judges of Bombay High Court.
- · Complaint filed for registration of FIR against politician, bureaucrats & judges.
In another case of brazen nexus of the politicians and bureaucrats, it has come forth that the present day Cabinet Minister, Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh in his capacity of Chief Minister, Maharashtra in connivance of Shri CS Sangeetrao-then Collector-Mumbai , Shri SS Zende- the then Collector Mumbai Suburban, Shri RC Joshi-Principal Secretary Dept of Revenue & Forest, Shri Ramanand Tiwari- Principal Secretary Urban Development Department entered into a criminal conspiracy to grab over land that was reserved as Housing of the Dishoused at Bandra. What is more shocking is the fact that this was done to benefit the NyaySagar CHS that had judges of Bombay High Court as its members.
A complaint demanding registration of FIR under section 120-b read with section 13(1)(d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 is being filed with the office of Director-Anti Corruption Bureau against Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh, Shri CS Sangeetrao, Shri SS Zende, Shri RC Joshi, Shri Ramanand Tiwari, Justice Vijay Chaganlalji Daga, Justice Ajay Manikrao Khanwilkar, Justice Gavai, Justice Ghodeshwar, Justice Sundram Radhakrishnan, Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, Justice Prasankumar Vinayak Kakde, Justice Rajender Lodha, Justice GD Patil, Justice H. E. Rebello, Justice DK Deshmukh, Justice DB Bhosale, Justice DG Karnik, Justice DY Chandrachud.
In the year 2001, serving judges of Bombay High Court came together and formed a CHS by the name of Nyay Sagar CHS and approached Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh for allotment of government land. They identified Survey No 341(Part) CTS No 629 Bandra East, which at that time was reserved for Housing the Dishoused and thus could not be allocated. To bypass this Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh ordered his subordinates, especially Shri CS Sangeetrao-then Collector-Mumbai , Shri SS Zende- the then Collector Mumbai Suburban, Shri RC Joshi-Principal Secretary Dept of Revenue & Forest, Shri Ramanand Tiwari- Principal Secretary Urban Development Department to change the DP reservation so that the land that was meant for the dishoused could be allocated to the Judges for fulfilling their greed as none of them is staying in the flat as all have been given on rent and are earning atleast rupees one lakh per month as rent.
Further, the Letter of Intent was issued to Nyay Sagar CHS, even before a decision was taken to allot the land, the possession of the land was given to the Society on date 26.3.2003, even though the final decision of allotting the said land to the said society was taken much later on 22.6.2004. More shockingly the Notification asking for suggestions and objections on the proposed change in DP reservation from Housing of the Dishoused to Residential zone on date 16 june 2004 and just six days after it i.e on date 22 june 2004 the final allotment of the land was done, though the time for filing suggestions were open for thirty days more.
Thus the process of change of DP reservation was mere an eye wash to fool the public as the decision to allot the same to the judges was taken much earlier. To do all this the Judges met Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh at his residence in the year 2002, decisions were taken at these meetings, they used their official letter head of being High Court Judge though the purpose for which they were writing was totally personnel, thus it was inappropriate and abuse of official power on the part of the judges.
The allotment of land meant for the neediest sections of the society to the most powerful is a clear case where those in power are abusing the power though they are entrusted with the authority for the greater common good. On one hand the slum dwellers in Mumbai are to face evictions and demolitions, decision regarding which are taken by the very same Ministers, Bureaucrats & Judges who get tighter into a nexus and grab the lands that are rightly meant for them but label the slum dwellers as encroachers and illegal while themselves engaging in acts of encroaching over the rights and lives of the poor.
