Panvel : 17th February was the 139th death anniversary of Vasudev Balwant Phadke, the first revolutionary. A procession with a Krantijyoti was held at his birthplace Shirdhon to observe his death anniversary. The procession started from the Hutatma Smarak in Krantijyot village and ended at the ‘Adya Krantiveer Vasudev Balwant Phadke Smriti Mandir’. Naib Subedar Shri. Bharat Karnekar (an Indian Army, and a son of Shirdhon village) and Shri. Sujit Hatmode (from Palaspe) lit the Krantijyot. The event was organized by Mandar Jog and Krantijyot Mandal, Shirdhon. Every year the Krantijyot is brought to various places sanctified by the steps of revolutionaries. This year, in view of the coronavirus pandemic, the procession was organized from the Martyrs’ Memorial in the village itself.
