To Hon.Chief Minister, Hon. Chief Secretary, Hon. Principal Secretary , Revenue & Forest ,GOM Maharashtra Respected Sir
We are deeply shocked on todays unfortunate incidence of burning alive Additional Collector, Malagaon late Yashwantrao Sonawane, who is reported badly beaten before setting ablaze. This is cruelty against humanity and challenge to rule of law. This is happening for the first time in the history of peaceful Maharashtra and symptomatic of grave dangers of rule of law.
We all Revenue Offices are in deep pain and agony. Mr. Yashwantrao Sonawane was a very calm, cool and upright officer and this has sent shock across all cadres not only revenue officers but across all services. Are officers working in field safe at all ? there are every now and then attacks by SAND MAFIAS , PDS mafias, NOW OIL MAFIAS AND MANY MORE. We all revenue officers are unanimous on not working for one day ----on 27th January 2011 in protest to attract attention of Government to seriousness of safety of its officers and employees . On behalf of all associations of revenue officers, I am intimating this as a notice to Government. Our demands:
1) Police need to be more aggressive against such offenders, they must deter to do such type of crime.
2) Stern action against offenders......MCOCA like action
3) Indepth inquiry of malpractices of OIL mafia.........in question including involvement of oil cos.-
4) Govt.to have policy for safety and security of its officers and staff. Now this has happened with Additional Collector......the prestigious institution of Govt. Administration..... this can happen with anybody in village or at any place....................... This has to be stopped.....seriously......we are working day and night for Government without caring families and private life...........Now it is too much..... -------------------------------------------- Pralhad Kachare General Secretary Federation of Revenue Officers Associations 9422750464, 9158001350 (Notice sent by mail to all)
